4.0 out of 5 stars Lush, evocative and the piano is back!!, 23 Sept. 2011

This review is from: Night of Hunters (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
Having been a fan since Little Earthquakes a new release from Tori is always a bit of an event for me so I was really looking forward to Night of Hunters.
I am pleased to say I was not disappointed!

First of all the length of the album; there are 14 tracks on NoH which is plenty; the one complaint I've had about some of Tori's past releases was that they were just too long.

The stand-out tracks for me are Shattering Sea, Job's Coffin, Nautical Twilight, Your Ghost, the title track and the lush and lovely Carry, which I have already decided to have played at my funeral! Tori's vocals are crisp and clear, the orchestration is stunning and the piano has definitely made a welcome return.

The duets between Tori and her daughter are lovely, the contrast between their vocals is striking and really works.

The only track that I didn't like was Battle of Trees; it's just a bit too long and doesn't really go anywhere.

I love the way the whole thing is packaged, like a book, with some beautiful imagery and photo's of Tori inside and on the front. The DVD is a nice little addition, with Tori talking about the concept of the album and footage of the photo shoots for the albums pictures.

I can't wait to curl up on the sofa on a dark, miserable day and put this album on full blast; it has that kind of dark, dramatic, windswept feel about it.

If you are a Tori fan you won't be disappointed. If you aren't a Tori fan give it a go anyway, especially if you love classical music.
