Many thanks to Lucy for this review!

Tori Amos
Scarlet's Walk

No one could ever accuse Tori Amos of following anything other than her own inscrutable vision.

"Scarlet's Walk," Amos' 7th album, is an ambitious, loosely formulated response to Sept. 11, told conceptually via a road trip across America infused with Amos' usual fascination with fantasy and mythology.

If that all sounds a little too diffuse, it is, and for every pretty song like "A Sorta Fairytale" or "Crazy," there are a number of interchangeable mid-tempo tracks that inevitably get bogged down by the weighty (and admittedly unwieldy) concept.

Fans will eat it up, but there's both too much and too little going on to successfully digest the disc and see it as the serious artistic statement it's intended to be.
