Review this album
StuartFMay 29, 2009The number of tracks doesn't bother me, Boys for Pele is huge, but all the tracks are original and great. She used to be the queen, but I was listening to both "Bat for Lashes" albums today and they leave Tori for dead. She's no longer relevant or original. Her greatest work was created out of her pain and suffering, as happy as I am that she is happy now, her music is left hollow!
GuyMAug 5, 2009Considering the fact that I've been a fan of Tori's for almost 2 decades now, since Y Kant Tori Read, I would say that I consider myself a Toriphile. With that being said, I can't believe how unbelievably bored I was while listening to this album, I just couldn't get into it at all... I've been trying to figure it out, but it's just so commercially different than anything she's ever done. What's surprising is that she produced this album herself and unfortunately both she and Bö have been completely lost in most of the tracks of this particular album. Very disappointed.… Expand
SisterJanet1219Jul 23, 2009I have been a Toriphile for so long now, I can't even count the years. With that said it pains me so greatly to see her come to this. "Abnormally Attracted to Sin" is, by far, one of the worst pieces of work she has come out with. I never thought I would dislike her work as much as I do on this record. I much prefer "Y Kant Tori Read" to this, at least that album was honest and, shockingly, not as over-produced as this one. I have always loved how she continuously evolves from record to record but with "Abnormally" I feel that she has just thrown together 20 years worth of worthless "B" sides and called it a night. I love you Tori, but even you can't be as proud of this as you were of your work of old.… Collapse
