"My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when I'm drunk I dance like me Dad
I've started to dress a bit like him
Early morning when I wake up
I look like Kiss but without the make up
And that's a good line to take it to the bridge
And you know and you know
'Cause my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow so before
I'm old I'll confess
You think that I'm strong - you're wrong
I'll sing my song, my song, my song"
I am ashamed to say... seven years later, this thing still earworms me from time to time...
I apologise in advance to all the fans of Tori Amos... but... I can't help but see her as a very cheap imitation of Kate Bush that strives to be more well-known and respected in the mainstream, dumbing it down and making it more "edgy" from time to time to achive that purpose. Actually, the only album I enjoy would be American Doll Posse - despite the multiple personality craziness and everything else, it's a wonderful album full of musical ideas and I still can hum pretty much every song from memory even eleven years later.
This here album is just a demonstration - it's not really bad, in any shape or form, but it definitely leaves something to be desired. I guess I prefer my female singers-songwriters to either actually be clever (Kate, Joni) or at least not to pretend so when they're really not (Vega, Avril, heck, even Liz Phair).
Or maybe it's just her. I mean.. it really takes someone special to take such a great hook as in Crucify and transform it into such an annoying, whiny bore of a song.
P.S. - Okay, Crucify is not that bad, if you ignore the lady and just concentrate on the song. Actually pretty good at that.
Dream Theater - Lines in the Sand
Iron Maiden - Running Free
Deep Purple - Stormbringer (song) .... mesmerizing solo from Blackmore !
