    Isn't Tori's house an old farmhouse? That looks way too new to be her Cornwall place.

    The house in the NOH artwork is her Ireland house.

    I'd consider it more of a Ranch Style house than a Bungalow.

    The term bungalow in the UK definitely means this style of house.

    I picked the album up on the day of release, coming back from college! God time is such a fickle thing.

    Probably should have posted this here:

    Having 4 EPs on one album with unique sounds would have been much more successful I think. I only hear 4 characters in the songs. I would have liked it more I think...
    She could have put spaces between the EPs with pictures of each doll beside her songs...

    Country Tori: (I would have liked a doll that looks like Dolly Parton for this one with huge fake cleavage)
    Miracle
    Big Wheel
    Drive All Night
    Roosterspur Bridge
    Secret Spell
    Almost Rosey
    Dark Side of the Sun

    Gritty Slutty Goth Tori:
    Body and Soul
    Teenage Hustling
    Fat Slut
    You Can Bring Your Dog
    Smokey Joe
    Code Red

    Emotional (normal) Tori:
    Girl Disappearing
    Bouncing off Clouds
    Father's Son
    Beauty of Speed
    Dragon

    Kooky Tori (for the Brits):
    Mr. Bad Man
    Devils and Gods
    Digital Ghost (could be up with Emotional Tori?)
    Programmable Soda
    Velvet Revolution
    Pussy Bonus
    My Pussy Can Do

    No Thank You Tori (DELETE):
    Yo George

    I would definitely put YCBYD in the country category.

    Wait, is it supposed to be a Pip song?
    All I want to be is the very best machine I can be.

    It's not her house but it's at the end of the lane leading to her house/studio etc

    I knew it was something like that! Thank you. I remembered it from before or something.

    I actually really love your thought process here, and though I would add more tracks to it, "No Thank You Tori" - that is so funny! Haha

    I have been interested in and listening to ADP this past week. I have always disliked the forced doll concept and the past few years I have always placed it at the bottom of my Tori album lists: AATS, TBK >>> ADP. But i realize now that it is actually this for me: ADP, TBK >>> AATS.

    This is because I can actually edit out a nice full length album from ADP, where as I can't say the same for TBK (more like a long EP) or AATS.

    I really wish she would have not gone through this bloated albums phase and just stuck with focussing on 12 - 14 killer tracks per album.

    I think my 12 track ADP would be this (and perhaps in this order):

    Smokey Joe
    Girl Disappearing
    Bouncing Off Clouds
    Digital Ghost
    Body and Soul
    Mr. Bad Man
    Father's Son
    Code Red
    Programmable Soda
    Beauty of Speed
    Almost Rosey
    Dragon

    Ten years!!

    I've been listening to the album and my opinions of it remain much the same - not particularly well produced or mixed, but it is fun and some of the songs are really good. Also the dolls concept is a fun idea - why not. There's some missed potential though for sure... she could really have let loose a bit more on some of the "rock" songs I think. My favourites are Code Red, Father's Son, Beauty of Speed, Body and Soul. I do enjoy Big Wheel. And Dark Side of the Sun is definitely better than I remembered. The baby voice in Programmable Soda is the opposite!

    Beauty of Speed solo is one of my favorite Tori songs, which I'm pretty sure I've said on here at least a hundred times. It's just so gorgeous.
