Ken Tucker on the album that’s at the top of his list of favorite albums of the year:






My favorite album of the year, however, barely dented mass consciousness, and it’s full of songs whose sentiments were rather more vehement than “Call Me Maybe.” With its clattering percussion and Fiona Apple’s twisty wordplay, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More than Ropes Will Ever Do is a sustained mood piece, a series of intricate word puzzles swaddled in ferocious emotion.










The Idler Wheel… is also my favourite album of 2012. :)
