Extraordinary Revisions

Fiona Apple fashions a different 'Machine'

Looks like Fiona's going the Dave Matthews route--rather than releasing the album listeners have already heard for free, she's reworking the same songs I've already heard on the online version of Extraordinary Machine with a different producer and releasing it under the same name on October 4. Busted Stuff, anyone? Not to pre-judge, but if past results are any guide to future performance, removing Jon Brion from the picture won't increase my appreciation of an album I already love. (Of course, that won't keep me from adding the release to my must-have calendar!)
