               shocking form on her latest album, a mind-numbing
               array of fascinating rhythms, outworldly sounds and
               cringe-inducing cryptic lyrics that lightly brush

                Inspired by a miscarriage Amos suffered, this is the
               kind of record that will brook no ambivalence.

               good or ill, the artist's personality comes across in
               vivid, lurid color. Love, hate, despair, sex and
               death and treated with the same sultry venom. It's
                Recommended, but only for those with strong
