    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.

    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.

    George Bush and Abe Lincoln?! That is hideous. "Sneeze" and "policeez?" Has anyone heard Boys for Pele? To Venus and Back? IT IS at it seems!!!!! She used to create new worlds, now it is just creepy. Each of her albums were mind-blowingly new, this is too painful, artist going political is always painful. Obviously alot of people here were desperately wanting to like this album. Score of George Bush and Abe Lincoln?! That is hideous. "Sneeze" and "policeez?" Has anyone heard Boys for Pele?

Score of 5 is simply because she is great musician. Expand

    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.

  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.
