    Completely agree.

Please, please, please hire musicians for the next album, Tori, and a producer.
    Yeah, I still just really can't get behind NI because of stuff like this. It's absolutely the best thing she's done in a while but it just never really gets there. Bang could be so good but instead, bleh.

    I agree NI's instrumentation sucked, but at least it didn't have UG's kazoo.

    As long as it’s not as stagnant as Matt & Jon sound on pretty much anything post-SHT, I’d welcome musicians again. I like the recent albums as-is though.

    I think the kazoo was perfectly placed. It made sense where it was - nothing wrong with that. And while I find it strange that the same 'team' could come up with a record as fresh as Choirgirl or Venus, the production on NI doesn't actually ruin any songs for me because the songs themselves are strong enough to carry through.

    NI sounded INFINITELY better than much of TBK, ADP, AATS and Midwinter Graces. Those albums had the band and that got stale and uninspired. With UG, I found the solo piano tracks to be the most inspired and beautiful she has sounded since Scarlet. But NI took that to another level.
