It took a while to grow on me... but now I love it.,
This review is from: Night of Hunters (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
When I first wrote this review, I said I was a bit disappointed and gave the album 3/5. I said it wasn't really my thing and I couldn't get into it. I also mentioned if I changed my mind I'd come back and edit this review. But I didn't think I would. Boy, was I wrong! This album has since grown on me and my liking for it has increased exponentially. It is just an amazing work of art by an artist who still has a lot of talent, and is not afraid to try new styles, always increasing her creative output, unafraid to take risks. Part of the reason I started to like the album more was I started to listen to it a lot at work ... powerful but also comforting, it was the perfect CD to accompany my work. Then I went to see Tori live in Dublin and hearing her perform tracks from this live, complete with accompanying classical musicians, continued to increase my love for this album. I still don't like it quite as much as earlier to mid Tori ("Boys For Pele" is my favourite) but I love it very much, and I highly recommend it. My favourite tracks include "Star Whisperer" and "Your Ghost". If you're anything like me, it might take you a while to get into this, but stick with it, as - trust me - it pays off, and really grows on you over time.
