This is the most positively uncomfortable experience you can have listening to music. It is equally fierce, honest, soothing, and tragic. The unconventional percussion is the star of the production, full of the banging of regular household items and even the barking of dogs. It is a claustrophobic cry that is fueled by the introspection of cabin fever. Fiona’s voice will sometimes feel like a warm embrace, and at other times will exude the chaotic energy of a war chant. This album is the acceptation of flaws, charmingly played out through the mismatched instrumentation and the direct storytelling presented through the lyrics. Fiona takes us through her life, both nostalgic and traumatic and profoundly relatable and human. Going into this you have to keep an open mind, and embrace the strangeness of the disjointed sounds. If you don’t like the idea of that, you won’t like this album, simple as that. Though only a handful of tracks here are worthy of adding to your playlist, the overall sound that ties this acoustic phenomenon together cannot be described as anything other than impressive. 4.5 / 5

I was honestly a little shocked the first time I heard Fiona Apple's 2020 album, 'Fetch the Bolt Cutters.' It defied so many of the expectations I didn't even know I had. But then that defiance quickly became the thing I loved most about it. This album--and Apple herself--is fierce and fearless in a way that demands your attention. Pitchfork gave it a perfect 10.
