Product Description


After Scarlet's Walk, Tori Amos' 2002 ambitious sonic travelogue that took her to all 50 states, penning loveletters to America along the way, the fiery earth-sprite has fashioned another high-minded concept album, tying her 19 songs--and one not-so-hidden track--into a garden motif that's part a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, another A Little Shop of Horrors, chronicling her rather autobiographical protagonist's journey through what seems to be an overgrown labyrinth of the subconscious as she experiences a series of life-altering events and emotions. In addition, living in Cornwall for the past decade has certainly had an effect on Amos, she even takes inspiration from Daphne Du Maurier's classic novel Jamaica Inn, which takes place on that rugged seacoast, but the greatest change is the grit in her voice; on a song like "Hoochie Woman," she sounds like she's channeling Chrissie Hynde--a welcome change from some of the preciousness of her earlier work. She also surprises with the steely, eloquent resolve on a song like "Goodbye Pisces" one of the better break-up songs in recent memory. The Beekeeper returns the quirky singer to the same whimsical terrain of 1992's Little Earthquakes, but with much stronger storylines and a much more assured a nd nuanced voice. Her best yet. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant work ... one of two favourites from her Sept. 6 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tori is a master at her craft. Great lyrics and a wonderful mix of instruments to make for very interesting albums. My all-time favourite song from her is the second on the CD -- Sweet the Sting. An absolute tour de force for my ears. If you like female vocal and interesting voices, she is worth a listen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Full of Hidden Gems... Dec 1 2009
Format:Audio CD
THE BEEKEEPER is possibly the most underrated album in the Tori Amos catalog. It's understandable how this could happen, however. The pastel-flowered cover art featuring a motherly looking Amos directly contrasts her brilliant, critically lauded solo-debut, Little Earthquakes, which alternately portrays Amos as a girl trapped in a box and some phallus-inspired mushrooms. Neither does THE BEEKEEPER match the raw emotional power of Tori's Harpsichord-driven album, Boys for Pele -- the inlay art of which displays the singer breastfeeding a small piglet.

What THE BEEKEEPER does offer is a 19-song set of mellow, radio-friendly tracks. The lyrics, while still rich in layered meaning, are not as inaccessible as those of earlier Amos works like Under the Pink or To Venus & Back. The melodies are complex and interesting but not dark and brooding like the angst-ridden From the Choirgirl Hotel.

The B3 Hammond Organ and the Hammond Chord Organ are featured heavily on this album, but "Sweet the Sting" still manages to makes you want to sway your hips, and "Ireland" is a fun, if forgettable, ditty. "Martha's Foolish Ginger" is a lovely ballad, as is "Sleeps with Butterflies," THE BEEKEEPER's lead single. "Parasol" has that classic Amos feel, while "Cars and Guitars" is so radio-friendly that it's hard to believe it's a Tori Amos song at all.

Anyone who enjoys lyrics with their music or is already a fan of Tori Amos will enjoy the CD -- The Beekeeper CD music is 5-stars.
When I purchased the Limited Edition which has the bonus DVD, I was expecting two "music video" promo-clips. They are not true music video clips: Garland is music with still-pictures. The rest of the DVD is Tori Amos explaining her thoughts for each music track -- I did enjoy this. I gave only 4 stars because of my surprise that there were no "music video" promo-clips. Had I known this, I would have purchased the CD-only and saved money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant... as per usual. April 10 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Tori never ceases to amaze me. I almost wonder if her music gets better with each album release... or at least refreshingly unique, without losing the true sense or feel of her well known artistic style. This album is deep, full of emotion, and inspiring. Wonderful, wonderful work.
