Woj tells me about another review of The Beekeeper from the February 20, 2005 edition of the Denver Post.

Amos stays true to pop vision
With this, Amos' ninth record, the singer-songwriter shows an unwavering dedication to her unique brand of pop.
Hummable piano work and metaphor-intensive lyrics are intertwined as always, and though Amos is likely tackling material from a more recent era in her life - it's tough to tell with Amos, one of the most enigmatic songwriters of any generation - she approaches it via her usual avenues.
Which is both good and bad.
Fans freaked out with Amos' departure in "To Venus and Back," and it seems like she has been reeling her creative side in ever since. "Barons of Suburbia" here has the rawness of "Blood Roses" and the smart storytelling of "God." It's no doubt quality, but it's also more of the same.
And many out there will have zero issues with that, especially given the quantity. "The Beekeeper" has 19 tracks.
