Published December 08, 2005.Tori AmosThe Beekeeper(Epic)Amos's first album of original material since 2002's epic Scarlet's Walk is a return to the ballad-based times of Under the Pink, with a gospel choir and Damien Rice thrown in for new colour. A political bent pokes its way through the (overlong) narrative, most bizarrely and beautifully in the Rice duet, "The Power of Orange Knickers," where Amos asks, plainly for once, "Who is this terrorist?"Tara Thornecategories: Best of the year (2005)
