Tori Amos—Bösendorfer, vocals
Gold Dust is similar to Tales of a Librarian in that it finds Tori re-recording songs from her back catalogue, though this time it's with the Dutch Metropole Orkest. So your reaction to that album might be a good way to gauge your likely interest in and enjoyment of this one. I personally prefer Gold Dust. The new track, "Flavor" is excellent and it's great to have a good recording of "Flying Dutchman." "Precious Things" is too polished smooth, and I don't really like this version of "Silent All These Years," but those are as close as the album gets to anything bad. Still, it just feels unnecessary. The arrangements, although all new, don't sound remarkably different from the originals, although the brass is more prominent. (JoAnn Whetsell)
