Tori at her most flexible and multi-faceted. The sheer length of the album could be a turn off to people who don’t have the time or perseverance to harvest it.
A gathering of Tori Amos’ best works, plus an accompanying DVD, four new tracks, and a gorgeous booklet: How can you go wrong?
Patchy at times, magnificent at others, a sonic novel about broken lives/shattered dreams/disillusionment/history. Any one of us could be the characters.
