yet another masterpiece,
This review is from: To Venus and Back (Audio CD)
tori never fails to amaze me. although all her albums have a similar style, they are all incredibly varied. at the time of writing this, i own "from the choirgirl hotel" and "boys for pele" both which are great albums. i prefer FTCH more because it has the electronic sound, which "to venus and back" has. the piano is still there, but it is contrasted wonderfully with the electronics and drums in the background.
standout tracks for me include "bliss" which is my favourite song on the album, "juarez" for it's plain originality and "1000 oceans" because it is a truly beautiful song, both lyrically and musically. all the songs on this album are brilliant and not to be missed.
disc 2, the live album blew me away. i have never seen (or heard) tori live before listening to this cd. now i am determined to see her someday. starting off with "precious things" the darkness of the piano and backing band set the scene for this cd. i loved the live versions of "cruel" and "bells for her" - they were so amazing. how one person can be so talented is beyond me. totally brilliant.
buy this now. don't think twice. just get it.
