To Venus and Back and Back again and again :), 1 Oct. 2008
One of Tori's lesser known albums.. This CD is simply stunning.. Made up of two disks.. one being a full-length studio album and the other being a collection of live tracks from Tori's tour.
The studio album (Venus. orbiting.) is simply beautiful and Tori conquers terriTORI that is unknown (to her). In Venus Ms Amos covers topics such as female mutilation, death and poison in her very own distinctive style. If you liked `From the Choirgirl Hotel' you will love this album as it is a sonic follow on. She samples synthesisers (Riot Poof, Datura) and drum loops and all strange techniques but she does not fully deviate from her well-known style (Josephine, 1000 Oceans, Lust, Spring Haze).
The second CD (Venus. live. still orbiting.) features some of your ol' Tori faves.. Cornflake Girl, Precious Things, Little Earthquakes and Space Dog and combines them with lesser known B-Sides Sugar, Cooling and Purple People.
This CD is the work of a true goddess and is a must or anyone with a penchant for Tori. Stunningly beautiful and remarkably touching. BUY THIS ALBUM!
