Little Earthquakes is awesome but to me nothing beats the dark-fairytale vibe of Choirgirl, It's just one of those albums that transports me into another world.

Strangely enough, I could never really get into Under the Pink. I do like some of the songs but to me that album has a slightly cloying quality that I don't get from any other Tori album.

Not my favorite either, but special in its place in my life at the time, and I do still love it.

I'm hearing a little bit of that on the new record.

I agree with this. But since most fans seem to love it more than I do, I always recommend it to people who like LE.

This got quite a glowing review on Popmatters today:

Nice. I pretty much agree with everything in that review, including what's said about the previous records. After a couple more listens today, "Flavor" is my first favorite song on the record but as the reviewer rightly points out, it could be something else next week, month, year. But "Flavor" sounds like it came out of the To Venus & Back sessions which I still think is a really underrated record.

I have not even begun to take in the lyrics yet. I'm just into the sounds right now.

ETA: You can hear "Flavor" (and see another home-movie-type video of Tori in various deep thought poses) if you scroll down that Popmatters article. Her face is so altered now, I can hardly even look at her although she looks better in this video than the others I've seen.

I was wondering about that. Has she had plastic surgery or is it just a lot of make-up and airbrushing? Of course I'm just a fan, and she is entitled to do as she pleases, but I'd love to see Tori be strong enough not to need to look a certain way to sell records. I would think she and her fan base are past that point.

I'm thinking a little bit of column A, B and C.

I'm really hoping it's just all for promotion/theme and she's just looking the part for the "abnormal" and "attracted to sin" aspects of this album. I'd hate to think she had horrible "Meg Ryan" plastic surgery.

Oh, and you can definitely count me in as one of those for whom Under The Pink is their favorite Tori album.

^ That's cute.

I had to post this pic because she's holding a Waterdragon. I had one of these little guys for 7 years. He passed away last year.

I don't think she's had work done but I didn't watch the video. This photo just looks airbrushed to me.

Hmm. I hadn't thought of that.

There's talk. She looks different to me, but I don't know.

Alright, this record is so much better than her last two. I'm lovin' my girl again.

There are maybe 4 songs that should have been b-sides but Tori doesn't seem to get the whole b-side concept. Still, I don't hate any of those songs. It just would have been a tighter record if she had done some editing, something HeartlandGirl has pointed out on previous records.

Good, I have hope then. I'm shameful to admit I did not purchase Beekeeper because I just couldn't get into Posse. I like Scarlet's Walk but if this new album is reminiscent of Choirgirl as a prev. poster surmised, I will be in Tori heaven again

edit* I realize Beekeeper was before Posse but I was in a different music place when it came out and didn't try to catch up until she did Posse. So you guys aren't scratching your heads at me
