Across the Universe
Fiona Apple

Rolling Stone    Oct 21  '98

Fiona Apple has managed to take the already psychedelic, mellow "Across the Universe," by the Beatles, make it her own without destroying the melody, and make it better.   Her soulful lilt on the "de" in the line "Jai guru de va om" is pure genius and the new version takes on a beautiful, velvety haze.  So, unless you have a yen for Fifties stars like Elvis Presley and Miles Davis, Fiona's the only reason to have this album.  fin
