Ack! I thought her remake of the Beatles' Across the Universe was not good. The original with John Lennon singing is 500 times better. Yeah, it's a great song, so Fiona's version was OK, but only because even she couldn't screw that song up.
Other than that, I like her music. I wouldn't call her voice "beautiful" like a Sarah McLachlan, but only because it's kind of deep and throaty. Her voice does lend itself to her music.
She does seem kind of self-righteous, egocentric, and weird. Remember her speech at the MTV awards a few years ago? What about the title of her latest album, the 500-word essay thing? I'm not sure there's a reason for that other than to draw attention. She can't be all bad, though, because she dates P.T. Anderson, the guy who has made awesome movies like Boogie Nights and Magnolia.
ok so she's wierd but i love her deep contra alto voice it is very melodic in the lower registers and that's not something you hear everyday. i LOVED across the universe but she really shines on the songs she's written like NEVR IS A PROMISE that has got to be one of my alltime favs the lyrics are very deep it's just something i identified with i found them very touching...
