    It comes with the deluxe version, not sure if that counts when it get from Amazon or iTunes? since they have bonus songs, confused and no help.

    You need to get the CD+DVD edition. It's not available in iTunes.

    If you get the 2-disc from Amazon, you get Forest of Glass.
    If you get the 1-disc from Amazon, you get Dixie.
    If you get the iTunes edition, you get White Telephone to God.

    Other than the two tracks I've mentioned, I'm very happy with the track order as is. I think she chose the right b-sides and the right piano/vocal songs for the album. Way to edit, Tori!

    The Amazon stream is the best quality I've heard. Looking forward to hearing everything proper next week!

    I think Weatherman is about Tori's father; Tori's imagining how his life would be without his wife. I can see the weatherman as a metaphor for a minister; they tell to people what might happen, but in the end it's nature who decided.

    It's nice to have again an album with lyrics that let you have different interpretations.

    I haven''t studied the lyrics to Weatherman in depth, but my first impression was that it was a love song between a weatherman and mother nature. Amazing metaphor.

    I've been thinking the same thing about Weatherman. For some reason I also get the feeling that maybe it was partially inspired by a painting, like maybe she saw a painting that made her think about her parents and helped inspire the song.


    I really like how the organ was used on this album.

    The music box piano intro to Maids sounds sooo good in HQ.
    Не може со обични зборови да ја домами необичноста, зашто и необичните си имаат секој свој пат и тешко се среќаваат.

    Weatherman can be taken so many ways...as simple as earth and global warming.

    Maids should not be on the album, Forest should be and Dixie is very much like a demo.
    I'm not understanding the lack of love for Maids. Is it reading as cartoonish/fantasy/something? I think the melody is really pretty and I like the chorus a lot.

    I love Maids too. I was expecting some cheesy Ren-faire deal when I heard the title but I think it's beautiful.

    I like it more now than I did it at first, but there's something about the production that makes me feel like I'm listening to Wedding Day Pt. 2.

    I actually kind of like it more than wedding day, but I agree the are similarish.
