sneaker.jpg (7446 bytes) A moody trip hot and dance cocktail. A shame that the lead singer has left the band. Her voice is needed to create the special atmosphere of this fine debut album.

8. Fiona Apple: Tidal

Fiona Apple: Tidal Debut album from Fiona Apple. She's only in her early twenties but sounds like she's forty. Brilliant stuff!
