  • For 2007's AMERICAN DOLL POSSE, singer-songwriter Tori Amos returns to more confrontational form, after her relatively subdued and introspective '05 outing, THE BEEKEEPER. While that album may have been informed by the warm, nurturing side of motherhood, POSSE seems to plant its feet on the fierce, protective side of raising a child, with Amos referring to various social and political issues even in the record's title, which nods to the wildly popular American Girl series of collectable dolls and gives the bold performer yet another reason to play dress-up.
  • In keeping with the various personas depicted on POSSE's cover, Amos has kept the album appropriately eclectic, with the upbeat, keyboard-driven "Bouncing Off Clouds" and buoyant "Secret Spell" playing off moody songs such as "Teenage Hustling," which breaks into a startling guitar-heavy swagger as it comments on despondent youth. By remaining fascinatingly unpredictable (see "Big Wheel," a raucous Southern rock number replete with twangy electric-guitar lines), Amos proves that she is still a vital and uncompromisingly creative force in pop more than 15 years into her impressive career.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.95) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] snowflake-perfect piano ballads elaborated with strings..."

Spin (p.92) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Trading obscure personal metaphors for assertive personae, Amos sings with a remarkably forceful focus."

CMJ (p.5) - "[H]er most rock-influenced record....Her sultry voice is draped over lush pianos, lo-fi drums, and melodic guitars."
