Toast to Tori
Although I've followed Tori Amos since YKTR and Little Earthquakes days, I'll be the first to admit she can be insufferably annoying at times. But no good deed should go untoasted. American Doll Posse is a 21st century masterpiece, 23 songs and virtually all of them good, no filler and plenty of riffs to remember. It's a growing truism to say the album format is dead, but every now and then, someone like Tori or Modest Mouse or Arctic Monkeys comes along to knock that old, tired album format right out of the ballpark.
