ToriAmosAmericanSound: As usual, Tori depicts an array of decidedly feminine perspectives and emotions. But she’s never varied the canvas as much as she does on American Doll Posse. From political anger to snappy theatrics to unhinged catharsis to sensual elegance to woozy meditations…and much more, she covers a sprawling range of topics and moods. Piano is the most prominent instrument, and she finds room for some dirty guitars, flowing strings, quaint brass and flickering mandolins, as well.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “Big Wheel”; “Body and Soul”; “Teenage Hustling”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Secret Spell”; “You Can Bring Your Dog”; “Bouncing Off Clouds”
Recommended: American Doll Posse has some surprisingly rockin’ moments and Tori impressively pulls off every genre she tries. She hasn’t made an album this urgent or exciting in years. The major drawback, though, is the length. At nearly 80 minutes, this is a daunting and seemingly endless listen.
Grade: B+
