Overview

Amos describes Abnormally Attracted to Sin as "really handmade." She adds: "I wanted to make a treasure, something people will value." The disc features Amos at her most passionate and her most comfortable. It could have come out at any point between her 1992 solo debut, Little Earthquakes, and now. The album's elaborate packaging shows Amos in a variety of guises, photographed in various rooms of a plush, cream-colored Victorian hotel room by glamour expert Karen Collins. The sound of the album is typically detailed and wide, dominated by dark, rich reds and hints of silver. ("I want to make audio mescaline," Tori said.)

I'm new to listening to Tori but enjoy the uniqueness of this album immensely!

While being better than her previous albums Tori Amos' new CD stills feel a little empty. Don't get me wrong, OK Tori is still better than the best others can come up with, but I long for the days of when every song had resonance. With artists such as Regina Spektor and Ben Folds turning out Great Piano based albums, I've had my fill of what Tori used to do for me. Even a new-comer like Lenka has piqued my interest. I know Tori is not done, but I do feel like she need to decide what direction she want to take.
