The Beekeeper isn't a bad album, the more I listen to it the more it grows on me. The trouble is most of us here remember how utterly amazing Tori used to be. The 'holy trinity' of LE, UtP and BfP are from a time when she didn't just shape the genre, she was the genre.
If we're critical it's because we know how absolutely, astonishingly original and lyrical she can be. Painting pictures in song that far outshine any painting. To see her sell herself short by succumbing to middle-of-the-road-itis is just a bit difficult to adjust to, despite her having an almost infinite well of stored goodwill.
I'm not going to stop being a massive fan just because she puts out an album that's a little so-so. But give us time to grow on you, we're not bad, just passionate about what we believe in ;D

hhhhmmmm you guys are hunny and sweet
Personally I'm loving the Beekeeper, it's not UTP BFP FTCH TVAB ....these will always and forever pluck at my heartstrings and evoke every emotion I have ever felt..........but the Beekeeper will soon enough have a place with these gals too. Marys of the Sea.....c'mon how can you say that's crap?! It's true indeed that our lady of the Loch has grown up, but so have I with her.
blah blah blah ....anyway kisses and licks to you all :blah:
and when the woman lies you don't believe her rolling and unrolling coiling emerging running free running through the underworld into your room
I love the beekeeper!! :hazy: It did take a lil to grow on me, but I have been listening to it since I downloaded it. I'd say I was hooked after the first week :giggle: I am yet to buy it because I want the SPECIAL EDITION (it's not limited you guys it's special ;D) but I don't want to import because of the retard import taxes that I have to pay.

as a whole, I dont like the album, but I do like a few songs. Marys of the Sea happens to be one of them. Its a great song! Sounds like tori there playing the piano! :nana: I also like Ribbons, the Beekeeper and Barons of Suburbia. Im just real sad that I have come to the realization that she will never again make music like BFP or UTP. :bfp: :pink:
Karma police arrest this girl, her Hitler hairdo is making me feel ill and we have crashed her party.
This is what you get, this is what you get, this is what you get, when you mess with us.
