During tours, we do our best to cover setlists in real-time on Twitter. If you want to tweet a show in, just DM or @ us on the day and tell us to watch your stream that night.
Tori is not presently on tour.
Anni also transcribed Mojo’s review of the new album for us. Thanks to her for that, as it’s not on their website either (tsk tsk! such luddites!). The review’s in the June 2007 issue, with the “100 Records That Changed The World” cover story, in case you feel the need to track it down.
Tori Amos: American Doll Posse
Still crazy after all these albums…
Like dyed hair, beards or gospel choirs, the concept album is something many artists feel a temptation to dabble in. But Ms Amos’s ninth studio album is her third song cycle on the trot, 20 songs long, at which point even the most indulgent of prog rock behemoths might call time. Still, a softly emotive Father’s Son stands out, while Bouncing Off Clouds and Secret Spell are stylishly melodramatic. And who else would dare claim, as Tori does on a rollicking Big Wheel, “I’m a M.I.L.F., don’t you forget” (refer to your nearest glossary of porn terms)? Top marks for wilful eccentricity, then, but as with her other 21st century output, other numbers are much less memorable. Here’s a concept Tori: less is more.
