Editors’ Notes Fiona Apple offered a wellspring of intimate adolescent confessionals on her 1996 debut, Tidal, as her husky vocals, stark explorations of female sensuality, and cascading, jazz-flecked melodies belied the New Yorker's tender age. “Sullen Girl”—a wrenching piano ballad examining the wounds of her early sexual assault—is simultaneously full of malaise and hope, while the proud lead single “Criminal” puts Apple wholly in charge. The self-confessed bad, bad girl drew a heartwrenchingly relatable portrait of teenage turbulence.
