4 stars This year there are loads of great albums coming out and I listened to many of those. Among many artists i have loved for years including Neal Morse, Dear Hunter, Dream Theater (ugh), Phideaux, White Willow, PoS, Anathema, etc., I am happy to report that this album by Tori Amos seems to be one of the strongest pieces of work this year, in my humble opinion of course. Strangely I never cared to listen to Tori Amos before. In fact, i listened to some work by sort of similarly eclectic female rockers, i.e. Kate Bush or Michelle Young. Some of their songs grabbed my attention but i lost interest quickly. Upon hearing a few tracks i decided to buy this and since then this CD rarely leaves my car, and i've ripped it on my phone so i can listen to these beautiful songs during work time. (Yeah, hope none of you know my boss!) Overall, this CD is piano-oriented, with accompaniment of strings and woodwind. Her singing is pretty good, and the music arrangement fits her voice perfectly. An interesting concept flows well through the lyrics of these 14 songs. The mixing is superb. Obviously Ms Amos composed these pieces on top of classical pieces and the tunes really inspired me to dig deeper into classical music. In summary, i strongly recommend this to everyone, not just progheads. But please consider Night of Hunters very worthy of your prog music collection.
