Top Customer Reviews
This is the first album (sans the classically-inspired Night Of Hunters) since the mid-90s not to feature long-time collaboraters Matt Chamberlain (drums) and Jon Evans (bass). So inevitably the album is less of a band affair, featuring no less than seven tracks with only Tori and her piano. The rest of the tracks have drums programmed by her husband, who also adds his usual guitar flourishes throughout.
One thing that struck me listening to this record is that her vocals sound more controlled and strong than her more recent albums, utilising her upper range to great effect, at times harking back to her vocal stylings on Little Earthquakes.
As for the songs, title track Unrepentant Geraldines is an utter masterpiece in my eyes. The main body of the song is largely experimental and unpredictable, shifting between contrasting sections with ease, a reggae tinged verse, leading into a punk-rock style bridge, then going into a piano-centred anthemic chorus. Just when you think you've wrapped your head around the song it ends abruptly and goes into a beautiful piano-centred outro section, which, on a first listen could very easily be mistaken for an entirely different song. It really has to be heard to be believed.
Other highlights include the haunting Weatherman and the gloriously quirky Beatles-esque Giants Rolling Pin.
However, is this still a fantastic album? Yes.
Everyone remembers the unconventional and, at times, groundbreaking debut "Little Earthquakes" and the 3 albums that immediately followed - "Under The Pink", "Boys for Pele" and "From The Choirgirl Hotel". Tori's output up to and including 2002's "Scarlet's Walk" was pretty flawless, however in recent years her albums have become overly long, bloated and full of filler. After a period of revisiting her childhood classical training and working on a musical with London's National Theatre, Tori has returned to making contemporary music. I'm trying to avoid the word "pop", because she's never made "pop" music. Whilst this isn't the greatest Tori album, it's most certainly worthy to bare her name, with songs like "Wild Way", "Invisible Boy" and "Selkie" echoing her earlier piano orientated work, and "16 Shades Of Blue" and "Rose Dover" containing elements reminscent of her electronic work on "From The Choirgirl Hotel" and "To Venus And Back".
Vocally, Tori sounds better than she has in at least 10 years and her piano playing is on point. Both lyrically and musically compelling and interesting, the album is exactly how you would expect Tori to sound at this stage in her career, ignoring her 2 most recent contemporary efforts "American Doll Posse" and "Abnormally Attracted To Sin", which now sound more like a desperate cry for help during a midlife crisis than compelling music.
"Giant's Rolling Pin" is a bit unnecessary and "Promise" (a duet with Tori's daughter), though a nice song, sounds out of place on the album.Read more ›
Those who are willing to approach this without fear it might be as uninviting as the last three albums, they will soon find themselves drawn to it. It seems as though Tori has taken some of her past albums' great moments, creating her most interesting work in years. Letting the songs come together on their own, here she abandons the disastrous, inaccessible content of over-reaching concepts, complex writing, and lengthy duration of late albums, and steps forward with a lighter, yet mature, self-assured, yet heartwarming, captivating record. "Selkie" and the title track are examples of her unparalleled songwriting magnificence, while "Oysters" and closing track "Invisible boy" evokes simultaneously strength and vulnerability, in the most heart-wrenching way. It has always been Tori's art that made her unique, but it is her heart that made her precious. "Geraldines" are glorious.
