Completing the triple play of mini-reviews, here’s The Daily Mail’s take on American Doll Posse. This one does not yet appear to be on the web so hanks to Melissae and Lucy for sending it in!
Lucy, with an assist from Luke, also sent in The Mirror’s equally-brief but more approving review of American Doll Posse.
Lucy was the first to point out The Times’ short and somewhat ambiguous review of American Doll Posse.
Thanks to Martin and lucy for passing along links to The Sun’s positive review (4.5 stars out of 5) of American Doll Posse. Unlike Fiona Shepard, the reviewer finds the combination of Tori’s five personas to be a boon to the record.
Rip It Up, a weekly publication in Adelaide, Australia, has reviewed American Doll Posse. For the record, the k-word shows up in the first sentence.

Thanks to Toni for the link!
Caroline Sullivan reviews American Doll Posse today on The Guardian’s website, giving the album 4 out of 5 stars. (“Folk?” Really?) Thanks, Pete.
It’s ninth-album time and Amos is about as fashionable as carbohydrates these days, but she remains one of the most ambitious conceptual songwriters on a major label. There are five Toris on the cover – warrior Tori, hippy Tori, voodoo Tori clutching rooster – each of whom symbolises a facet of womanhood. The aim of the 23 songs is to reassemble the segments into a cohesive whole, in the hope of “rousing 18-year-olds to wake up and make [political] choices”. It’s a tall order, but she makes an inspiring role model, answerable only to her fierce, funny self. Some of her best work in years is here: a solemn, witty shout-out to the commander-in-chief titled Yo George (“I have an allergy to your policies’”), the echo-laden rocker You Can Bring Your Dog, which bawdily likens people to pets, and the distorted squall of Code Red. There’s far too much, though; cut to 10 tracks it would have been her one of her most significant records.
