I don't really even consider buying CD-Singles for any artist other than Tori Amos. A Sorta Fairytale is another in a long line of incredible Amos singles. Strange Little Girls was an interesting album, but what I continually yearn for are brand new Tori Amos songs, and it has been awhile since any were available. A Sorta Fairytale is like an old friend, reflecting the kind of sound and emotion I equate with the early Tori Amos music I fell in love with. The song is a little more snazzy than her earliest Little Earthquakes masterpieces, but it feels like a song I have known and loved for years, a comfortable old friend who communicates with me in much more than mere words. We have two versions of the song here-the original album version and "The 101 Mix." I have to be honest and say that I often cannot really notice the difference between two different mixes of the same song, and that is the case here, but the song's so enjoyable that you want to listen to it more than once, anyway. The extra song included here is Operation Peter Pan; despite its relatively short length (1:45), it's pure Tori and a great song to have in your music library. Finally, we also get a little vignette in pictures of the story behind the title song accompanied by Tori's typically deep and guru-like summation of what the song really means and how it came into being. As a dedicated Tori fan, I am thrilled with the material making up this CD-single.
