Top-20 countdown - no.03

Tori Amos - Night Of Hunters

In contrast with her unintentional nemesis, Kate Bush, Tori presents us with new records regularly, not always with the best results. Having raised our hopes high with her two latest ones, she scores from afar and securely with this one. Inspired from classical music (Debussy, Chopin etc.) and with a concept of a dark and fantastic story, the ghost of a relationship ending but also a twin personality framing her, Tori returns to her beloved piano and grasps us from the strings of our hearts, never letting them go until the album finishes. The surprise gift here is her daughter's participation in the vocals of some of the songs. If you still love her, do not miss this.

This review was first published in free-press magazine FAGazine, issue 01.
