    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.

    I think Teenage Hustling is a good character "doll" song on this album.
    I love the "maybe the riddle of this accident" part.

    Does anyone know what this song is about? Tori's piano bar days in Washington as a teen? Or just Tori making up Pip lyrics?

    Me too, its definitely the standout on ADP. It almost sounds as if its from different era..a different soundworld.

    ANY version of Beauty of Speed is in my all time top 10. It reminds so much of a Little Earthquakes era song, like Girl or Upside Down, but with more shiny pop flair. I don't mind the album version, even if the mix is kind of muffled/muddy. The drums have a Hounds of Love-esque rhythm which is what I miss in the solo version.

    Beauty of Speed 2009 with better vocals. Wish so badly it existed.

    Having a roosterspur bridge moment - obviously only versions minus guitar, e.g. AOL sessions, but I have always really liked this song.

    She did a wonderful solo version of 'Roosterpur Bridge' at the 'Backstage At Bonnaroo' session. You should check that one out! It'll make you wonder why she uses the band so much, because so many songs from 'American Doll Posse' (and also 'Abnormally Attracted To Sin') sound way better solo. And speaking of 'Roosterpur Bridge': it holds a special place in my heart since she played it the very first time I saw her live. And it happened to be the first time she ever played it, so it was a really nice debut.

    ADP has some amazing songs. With proper production it could have been another killer album by her. Beauty of speed, almost rosey, roosterspur bridge, those songs solo piano are among the most beautiful i've ever heard.

    I've just tried to listen beauty of speed studio but I could not end the beginning. When the guitar enters the song is destroyed.

    Roosterspur Bridge reminds me of my partner. It's not a perfect song by any stretch but it's special to me too. I'm partial to the performances from Live on Sunset in Australia 2007 and one she did in 2015, respectively.
