Tori Amos, Native Invader. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 7/10

You can stand in front of the Mona Lisa as it resides deep underground in Paris and you can marvel in the perfection, the composition, and you can be haunted by Time, by the sheer scope of history and the insignificance of what is shadowing the piece before you and you are struck by the beauty, by the sheer audacity of one human being’s attempt to capture something exquisite, a slice of art that is permanent and captivating. You can do all that but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you think it is the most interesting or truly dynamic of works; that it is so beautiful and evocative but ultimately it is not as good as the brain or the heart desires it to be.
