    Trading obscure metaphors for assertive personae, Amos sings with a remarkably forceful focus. [Jun 2007, p.92]
  2. "ADP" is often fun but sometimes overwrought, and non-fans may find it too much.

    Big fan, but I just don't get this one. There are a couple of great tracks, but for the most part, ADP falls completely flat for me. While the Beekeeper was also not her best - can someone tell me which songs on ADP are better than Barons of Suburbia, Mother Revolution, or the power of orange knickers? Anyone rating this album above a 5, is seriously kidding themselves. Full Review »

    It's definitely better than The Beekeeper. The problem with ADP is that there's too much. The album is bloated with interludes that don't amount to anything. However, there are some highlights with it. "Dragon" is amazing, and "Smokey Joe" is haunting. Get rid of about 9 or 10 tracks and this album will be pretty solid. Full Review »

    A very good comeback after the lethargic and bland The Beekeper. The songs are diverse in style, but each one is haunting in her own way. Tori proves she can tackle genres outside her usual domain, but still provides material for fans of her older, recognizeable style. Full Review »
