Mother Amos

Tori Amos - Abnormally Attracted To Sin

Tori Amos has been a constant part of my life for over 10 years now. Over time her voice has grown so familiar that it somehow became a second mother to me. With all her releases since my first album of her she has never let me down. I loved every one of them – some of them more, some of them less. Her new record Abnormally Attracted To Sin will probably be filed under the later category. I’ve been listening to it for a while now, but although I generally enjoy the songs none of them really managed to stand out so far. The album seems to lack a bit of a concept and for me all the songs on it sound like they each belong to some of her previous records. So in a way this one is like time traveling to the past.

But along with this album I did find something else that really stood out: A comic anthology called Comic Book Tattoo with stories from many different artists based on the songs of Tori Amos. This way I can finally make sense of some of her crazy lyrics. This really is a beautiful book. And I’m someone who is generally not so much into comics. More images after the jump.

UPDATE: Tori finally announced tour dates for Germany. She will play in Berlin on October 7th at Tempodrom.
