    Wedding Day was one of my favorites, even with the shitty quality, now I love it even more; there's something so beautiful about that song. I said it before, when it starts, and her voice come in, I just can't describe it. That spacey atmosphere, it's pure beauty.

    Same! But I know that it's because of the shitty leak I've been listening to.

    After a week of listening to the album I can safely say I love most of it and it really does feel like classic Tori. I deleted GRP, Promise and Rose Dover after my first listen and do not miss them. There are some issues with the production (unnecessary doubled vocals, echo effects where they shouldn't be - looking at you Invisible Boy) but that seems to be part of the deal nowadays (as is the presence of Mark) and I was actually surprised at how much richer and nuanced it sounds in comparison to anything else post-TBK. Her gift for melody really shines on this album - Weatherman and Selkie are spellbinding - and even on the weaker songs like America and Trouble's Lament the melodies are still incredibly strong. I can see it holding its own among everything 1999-2005, which is more than I could have ever hoped for.

    My ranking (have not yet heard the bonus tracks):
    1. Weatherman
    2. Selkie
    3. Oysters
    4. Invisible Boy
    5. Unrepentant Geraldines
    6. Wild Way
    7. 16 Shades of Blue
    8. Maids of Elfen-Mere
    9. America
    10. Trouble's Lament
    11. Wedding Day
    12. Rose Dover
    13. Promise
    14. Giant's Rolling Pin

    ^ a word of advice: undelete Rose Dover (and buy a copy of the album)

    Dixie needs to become like a Mother's Day anthem or something. SERIOUSLY
    Не може со обични зборови да ја домами необичноста, зашто и необичните си имаат секој свој пат и тешко се среќаваат.

    Alright. Now that I've listened to the album all the way through a few times in HQ, I've decided I love the whole damn thing -- minus GRP (just no) and Rose Dover. It's a beautiful, ambitious album. I wasn't keen on America or Wedding Day before, but now I find myself walking around humming them. .

    Also, I am just STUNNED by "Forest of Glass." It's perfect.

    How much better does the piano sound than on any of her recent recordings? There's space in it! And a sense of presence from the instrument. Stuff like the pedals and hearing the dampers lift and the like. It's things like that I adore in a piano recording.

    Also everything seems so WARM. TBK-AATS felt cold and mechanical (in more ways than one).

    sorry, but Forest of Glass and Dixie should have been on the album proper with Promise and Rolling Pin as b-sides.

    How is everyone hearing "Forest of Glass?" Is it available for download somewhere?

    And count me in as a "Rose Dover" enthusiast. It's fantastic.
