DMConner tells me that there is a short review of The Beekeeper in the February 20, 2005 edition of the Washinton Post newspaper. They gave it a favorable A- grade.
You can read the review below:
[Review by Shirley Halperin]
The Beekeeper, Tori Amos
Epic Records, $19
Thirteen years after the world was first introduced to her power-piano sound, the seductive songstress continued to mesmerize.
"I'm not like the girls that you've known/But I believe I'm worth coming home to." --"Sleeps With Butterflies"
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE
Witnessing Amos, the daughter of a Methodist minister, explore her Christian roots; hearing her Chrissie Hynde-like vocals on "Hoochie Woman"
WHAT YOU WON'T
Though this concept album aims for a "garden" theme (can you say "allegory"?), nonsensical songs like "The Power of Orange Knickers" abound.
