An album I’ve been listening to a lot these past couple of days is Tori Amos’ “The Beekeeper”.
I’ve never been a fan of Tori Amos, and other than her song “Crucify” I’ve never really heard something else by her that I liked, except maybe for a remix of “Professional Widow”.
Anyway, while reading a book, I needed some calm music in the background, and the only thing I found on my laptop or mp3 player was Tori’s album.
The thing is that the album stole me away from the book.
I really like it. The music, the lyrics, the whole spirit and style of it are really laid back and nice with a touch of weirdness.
My favourite songs off the album are: Parasol, Sweet The Sting, Jamaica Inn, Sleeps With Butterflies…
I never thought I’d be saying this about a Tori Amos album, but it’s really worth checking out.
