Tori Amos—Bösendorfer, Hammond, programming, additional instrumentation, vocals
Mac Aladdin—all guitars
I had high hopes based on the track "16 Shades of Blue," (which I heard before the album's release and which I still love) and some reviewers calling it her best album in 20 years. Sadly, it's one of the rare albums that I've grown to like less the more I listen to it. The more upbeat/poppier songs ("Trouble's Lament," "Wedding Day," and even "America") seem more successful. Many of the songs have pretty and delicate melodies, hearkening back to songs like "Icicle" and "Bells for Her" (which I love) but nevertheless they just bore me. Too much of the album is like that for me—pretty on the surface, but rather dull. (JoAnn Whetsell)
