I thought Tidal was one of the better debut albums of the 1990s. I wasn't quite as enamored by When the Pawn... but I thought it was still very good, definately a solid album. I didn't pay much attention to her for a while but back in 2005 I heard what I guess were the original tracks to Extraordinary Machine I was out of the country at the time and didnt realize that she had sort of a Tweedy/Yankee Hotel Foxtrot situation on her hands with Sony deeming them not "commercial" enough. A few weeks ago I checked out the album (EM) that was finally released in fall 2005, and I much preferred the original tracks that leaked. The released version struck me as entirely too busy...no space, as everything had been jam packed. Anyway, that is my rambling way of saying that at one time I thought she had the potential to be one of the great female singer/songwriters of the 2000s but things seem to have stalled. Does anybody know if she is working on anything? EM, the reworked version, was released in October 2005, but I think most of the tracks were finished by 2003/04, and I'm not aware that anything of her's has come out since...which would mean that its been about 6 or 7 years.
