5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Tori for pop lovers!!!!!, 30 Oct. 2005
This review is from: The Beekeeper (Audio CD)
I am considerably late in realising the musical significance of Tori Amos. I only became aware of her amazing, amazing talent this year and The Beekeeper is the album that opened the door for me.
Previously I had only looked at pop chart music but I was spurred to venture outside the square this year. Im so very glad I did!!
The Beekeeper is the perfect introduction to Tori for pop lovers. Its accessible and full of gorgeous, upbeat melodies!
I had to listen a couple of times to "get" some of the tracks, but I can say that once I did I was allowed access to a truly wonderful musical world, one that if you're willing will change your perception of music forever!
Standout tracks for me are:
"The Power of Orange Knickers" - A quirky yet beautiful song, starts off quite sedately but really comes into its own, with a catchy chorus
"Barons of Suburbia" - My favourite track! The use of the piano is stunning and the melody is beautiful. Yet theres something oddly defiant about it, especially at the end. Brilliant!
"Goodbye Pisces" - This track I liked immediately and remains one of my favourites. Tori's voice is dripping with honey (excuse the pun)!!!
"The Beekeeper" - Now this one, well its at odds with everything else on the album! However, this is not a bad thing, its so original and not like anything I had ever heard, again takes some getting used to but its brilliantly innovative once youve heard it a couple of times!
Other tracks worth a special mention include:
Parasol, Jamaica Inn, Sleeps with Butterflies, General Joy, Martha's Foolish Ginger, Mary's of the Sea and Toast - theyre all great too.
So as you can see I like most of the tracks, some old school Tori fans have dismissed this album but I can say this. After The Beekeeper I bought all of Tori's previous albums. I was thrilled to find I loved them all, but The Beekeeper still remains a firm friend. Buy it!!!!!
