    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.

    It's overstuffed, bloated and full of mediocre songs. Unfortunately, like The Beekeeper, there is no progression or growth whatsoever. The music sounds dated and stale. Too bad. I'm a big fan of hers.

    i wish this woman could take a step back and realize how ridiculous she looks/sounds. she went off the deep end but wound up with nothing deep.

    Yet another "kooky" but ultimately directionless concept album. What Tori needs desperately is a producer. Someone who could focus her abundant energy. Maybe then we'll see a true return to form, in stead of just another mess of an album.

    I cannot find the words to describe what I think of this disaster area of an album. It is outside language. It does amaze me though, how she can blow me away with songs like Dragon, and then embarrass me with songs like Teenage Hustling and Devils and Gods. Tori has reached a new low on this album. It's Strange Little Girls all over again. American Doll Posse is a display of Trite in I cannot find the words to describe what I think of this disaster area of an album. It is outside language.

It's Strange Little Girls all over again. American Doll Posse is a display of Trite in rare form. by song 6 I knew it was going downhill. By song 15, I wanted to drive my Z4 into a brick wall and spare us both. By song 20, I had turned it off. By the way, I am a die-hard fan. Expand

  1. Too bad Posse is a conceptual wreck, because it benefits from some of the beefiest, most borderline-glam-rock moments Amos has put on record.
  2. Ambitious, high-concept albums are one thing, but Posse's just a boring mess.
  3. Some of her best work in years is here... There's far too much, though; cut to 10 tracks it would have been her one of her most significant records.
