1. Fiona Apple
2005: My favorite tracks are Extraordinary Machine
, Better Version Of Me
, and Not About Love
. I like the font and the color in the CD booklet, but overall it's pretty boring. Not enough pictures.
2. Maya Barsony
2008: Pompe a diesel

3. Bat for Lashes
, Peace of Mind
, and The Big Sleep
