Zegut has posted photos from the session Tori recorded at the RTL2 studios in Paris. on April 17th. The Zacoustics session will be aired on RTL2 on Thursday, May 3rd between 10 and 11pm Paris time.
Amos prefers to support up-and-coming designers, so when planning this tour, she and Binns showcased emerging London designers in a variety of ways for the five dissimilar members. “When I think of Tori, I think of Freddy Mercury from Queen or David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust. When they were on stage, they gave you a bloody show,” says Binns.
Joe sent in a new article from Women’s Wear Daily about how Tori and her stylist, Karen Binns, decked out the Dolls.

The Yahoo Music Video page is now showing the video for “Big Wheel.” Even though this song is sung by just one member of the Posse (Tori), all the ladies are here in full swing. Check it out.
Keep on rolling, SortaLucifer and Speedbliss!
Joe Vallese, aka Joey from Jer Z, has posted a rather thoughtful review of American Doll Posse on his blog.
“Just why do they say,” Tori Amos ponders on her latest effort, American Doll Posse, “have a nice day anyway?” On a political scale, there’s relatively little to smile about these days, of which Amos is well aware, and yet, she’s managed to put out her most raucous, infectiously foot-tapping, and pleasingly eclectic record to date. So what gives?
Head on over to the post to read the rest of his analysis of the record.
Dylan told us about a two-minute video of Tori talking about the recording of “Big Wheel” on the WE.tv video player. (WE is an American cable network aimed for women. ) A quick search of the site reveals a Q&A with Tori about American Doll Posse and, you guessed it, a link to Epic’s ADP contest.
Jump the fold to read the interview…
The April 21st issue of Music Week include this mini-review of American Doll Posse:
A masterful return to form from one of the Nineties’ most unique female singer-songwriters. From cheeky Bush-baiting political opener Yo George to the understated, orchestra-laden Girl Disappearing, Amos’ ninth album sees her living up to the much-mooted kook moniker by adopting multiple personalities while skilfully side-stepping the door marked comedy pastiche. A feminist’s gem, but where is the next generation of Björks and Toris?
Thanks to Doron for passing this along!

Mina writes in to let us all know that Toril will be at French radio station RTL2 sometime today. This information was posted on programmer Zegut’s blog where he says she will be doing an acoustic performance during the afternoon on the 17th. Mina speculates that the performance will be on his program Pop Rock Station since he posted the news.
UPDATE: Zegut posted on his blog to announce that Tori was in the RTL2 studios today recording a session for Zacoustics. The session will be aired on May 3rd and he will be posting pictures from Tori’s visit tomorrow, presumably on his blog. Pop Rock Station airs from 9pm to Midnight.
Newsday’s Glenn Gamboa has heard “Big Wheel” and likes what he hears:
Tori Amos’ new single, “Big Wheel” (Epic), is also heavy on the percussion, a bit of a roots-rocker crossed with KT Tunstall, until it takes a wacky Tori twist and she throws in a drum countdown and naughty bridge before the self-proclaimed hot mama gets back to business, making “Big Wheel” her most likable work in years.
