beekeeper gets kidnapped by dolls, 25 April 2007
I was going to write a track by track review but there are 23 tracks on this cd so that would take forever. Her last two records were a bit too adult contemporary for my taste although they both had some great moments (ie. Carbon, Marths's Foolish Ginger, A sorta fairytale etc.) This one has more guitars and is darker on the whole compared to the last two. In my opinion it's like a cross between Choirgirl and The Beekeeper, and like the Beekeeper , this one comes with a concept too. This time around, we have five girls/dolls but the music doesnt take a backseat to the concept. You can listen to the whole cd without having to pay attention to the dolls. But where's the fun in that? :) My suggestion would be to listen to the album, get acquainted with the songs and then meet the dolls, who all have their own pages on myspace.
Teenage Hustling, Smokey Joe, Girl Disappearing, Code Red and Dragon are among the best things she's ever done.
This is for the fans who like the last two albums but still kinda miss the Tori of the 90s. Well, they dont need to go back there too often now, cuz the dolls have taken over the beehive!
