    This may be one of my favorite Tori Amos albums to date. Beautiful song choices. The emotion behind the songs are increadable. I was disappointed when I first found out it was an album of reworkings but I can not sstop listening to it. Why did i think Tori would disappoint, she never does.

    It is necessary to listen several times to find the true sense: the song "Marianne" (which for me went unseen in the album "Boys for Pele"), has an outstanding interpretation also thank the impulse that gives the orchestra.

    This project was an interesting attempt at creating more classical music tributes to her previous work, the only weakness is at times it comes across as a weak "Greatest Hits". Download: Flavor (Gold Dust Version), Programmable Soda (Gold Dust Version), Gold Dust (Gold Dust Version)

    The tunes sound lustrous but Amos, the singer and writer, sounds richer. [No. 93, p.53]

    The orchestral setting tempers the mannered vocal tics of some originals and proves transformative. [Dec 2012, p.96]

    Often the orchestra feels under-used on what, for the most part, are some disappointingly inert reinterpretations. [Nov 2012, p.89]
