Tori is not presently on tour.
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.
Tori delivers a sonic tapestry
April 27, 2007
TORI AMOS – American Doll Posse
WOW! Here’s comfortably the most complex album since last year’s sprawling folk epic Ys by Joanna Newsom. While that album’s five songs spanned nearly 56 minutes, this one’s 23 tracks push nearly 79 minutes (ie the length of a whole CD).
It finds Tori splitting herself into five personalities, Pip (expiraTORIal), Isabel (hisTORIcal), Clyde (cliTORIdes), Santa (sanaTORIum) and Tori herself (terra-TORIes) whatever they mean!
The whole thing sounds barmy but the interwoven song stories of these five characters become the richest of sonic tapestries, delivered with a spring in their step and plenty of kooky piano-driven pop hooks.
There’s also a fierce political edge to proceedings as the Isabel persona lets George Bush have it with both barrels on opener Yo George. Hearing is believing. CS
