100-Word Review: Tori Amos’ Abnormally Addicted to Sin

with one comment

If Little Earthquakes was a towering first-inning leadoff home run, Tori Amos‘ last few albums have all been solid stand-up doubles.  The Beekeeper was a Pete Rose-style sliding-headfirst triple.  Abormally Addicted to Sin, though, is a weak hit into the shallow outfield followed by an errant throw to first, so that the runner manages to reach second anyway.  (Okay, that metaphor is now officially abused.)  It’s certainly not bad, but it’s far from her best work:  I’ve listened to it four times and still haven’t found a single song which grabs me enough even to note its name.

Grade: B
