Review this album
Apr 19, 2014It's a bad Tori album, which means it's only better than 50% of everything else that's out there. Some people really dig this style, but after knowing her earlier more aggressive/dynamic work, it's difficult to appreciate the preciousness on some songs, on others it's just difficult to believe what she's forcing is working in any way... That said, there are a few beautiful songs, Original Sinsuality, Jamaica Inn, Marys of the Sea, and the bonus track Garlands, if you can find it. A few great songs on a 19 or 20 track tracklist is the reason this is a mediocre record.… Expand
Apr 14, 2013Not as good as her previous or subsequent efforts. Some of the songs are bland (Sweet the Sting, Parasol), some have tacky lyrics (Barons of Suburbia) and tacky titles (Martha's Foolish Ginger, The Power of Orange Knickers) while the lyrics on others are uninspired and clichéd (Sleeps with Butterflies, Ireland). Still, there are songs that still have the flare and emotion Tori is known for. The beautiful ballad Toast is an incredible closer, while the, unfortunately, bonus track Garlands comes 2nd place to Toast, and has more quality than every other song on the album.… Expand
Dec 2, 2013If Little Earthquakes is a perfect 10 album, than this is about an 8. It is a good record, and i am glad i bought it. Toris voice is so nice,and her singing is playful. She makes me compare here with Kate Bush, and i must say she dont stand back from Kate.
