    I love the cover art. That being said, the songs on this album are just as glossy and polished, devoid of any real heart, soul or life. While there are a few standout tracks Shattering Sea, Carry, Seven Sisters most of the album is overripe dreck that completely lacks the Tori essence.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As a fan who's followed Tori since Little Earthquakes, I'm sad to say this is by far the worst I've heard from her (in my opinion of course, others are more then welcome to disagree). To it's credit the music itself is brilliant and her voice is as lovely as ever but where this album falls flat is it's bad (and often corny) lyrics. Add to that a second singer on certain songs who I can only describe as trying to channel Peppermint Patty (from the Peanuts comics) and what you get is a product that sounds like someone is reciting poetry written by a fifth grader while playing Beethoven-quality symphonies in the background. That being said, I'll still be first in line to buy her next album. Expand

    It's not an ideal entry point into Amos;s unique world. [Nov 2011, p.98]

    Despite certain songs dragging on longer than need be, Night combines classical and flighty pop quite masterfully. [#82, p.53]

    Recalling Kate Bush and the enigmatic chamber music of Penguin Cafe and North Sea Radio Orchestras, the way is full of mystic visions, and the deathly conclusion is bittersweet. [Nov. 2011, p. 127]
