    You must love / like Jackie's Strength though too?

    Looking at my ranking a couple days later and an order ranking is not really accurate. I guess I think of Tori's albums in tiers:

    Tier 1 - Masterpieces
    Little Earthquakes
    Under the Pink
    Boys for Pele
    From the Choirgirl Hotel
    To Venus and Back
    Strange Little Girls
    Scarlet's Walk
    Scarlet's Hidden Treasures (first time where visuals sort of sucked - precursor for TBK album cover )

    Tier 2 - Very Good Albums
    Night of Hunters
    Unrepentant Geraldines

    Tier 3 - Okay/Good Albums with some very good moments
    The Beekeeper
    American Doll Posse
    Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    Midwinter Graces

    Tier 4 - Bad / Pointless Albums
    Tales of a Librarian
    Gold Dust

    1. Midwinter Graces - truly majestic.
    2. Lotta Earthquakes - I miss the "girl with the piano"
    3. Native Invasion - my inside source says this is *flawless*
    4. Tidal - love the blues influence.
    5. The Beekeeper - pretty.
    6. Abnormally Attached to Sin - so edgy!
    7. Gold Dust - better vocals than the old versions
    8. A Sort of Fairytale - I don't remember which album lol
    9. Strange Little Dolls - outfits were on point!
    10. The one with "Arms of the Angel"
    11. From the Cowgirl Hotel - I don't like this one
    12. Unrepugnant Trampolines - too commercial, she's losing it

    I like elements of Jackie's Strength. I like the opening piano and the chorus melody, but its a bit melodramatic for me.

    This is my first post here, better make it a good one

    Let's see:

    01. Boys for Pele / Scarlet's Walk
    02. Under the Pink / From the Choirgirl Hotel
    03. Strange Little Girls / To Venus and Back
    04. Little Earthquakes / Unrepentant Geraldines

    05. Night of Hunters / Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    06. The Beekeeper
    07. American Doll Posse / Midwinter Graces

    I haven't included Gold Dust because it doesn't feel like a proper album to me. I've also only listened to it once, and yet have no desire to do it again so maybe I should refrain from ranking it...

    1. From the Choirgirl Hotel (perfect)
    2. Little Earthquakes (first half is perfect - needs FD and TTTS instead of Leather)
    3. Boys for Pele
    4. To Venus and Back
    5. Scarlet's Walk (very long, took me forever to appreciate it that much)
    6. Under the Pink (this is high quality, but I never really got into it)
    7. Strange Little Girls (production and vocal delivery on point, HoG and HIAWG should be replaced by the B-Sides)
    8. American Doll Posse (POTENTIAL!!)
    9. Unrepentant Geraldines (lacks focus, partially awful production)
    10. Night of Hunters (I'd love more classical influences, but this has way too much Tash/Kalsey or whatever her name is.)
    11. The Beekeeper - (Way too long and MOR, but I love the experimentation with the Hammond and Gospel choir)
    12. Abnormally Attracted to Sin (Again, no focus; horrible production choices and many songs are just no fun)
    13. Gold Dust (lazy, copy and paste production, atrocious vocals on SCFF, Winter, Marianne and Jackie...)
    14. Midwinter Graces - just don't care much about this.
