5.0 out of 5 stars The music always sends me to places of the imagination!, August 8, 1999
This review is from: The Book of Secrets (Audio CD)
I got it for "The Mummer's Dance" (who screwed up and played something this good on a Top 40 station?) and fell in love with "Dante's Prayer." I live in Santa Barbara and every time I stare across the ocean to the Channel Islands I think "Cast your eyes on the ocean/Cast your soul to the sea....." Listening to "Dante's Prayer" while staring at the islands reminds me very much of Tolkien's elves staring across the sea to catch a glimpse of the land where the gods lived. I think she'd appreciate that, because in the liner notes for it she says "We all want to believe there is a better place" (paraphrase) and her songs always send me to the fantasy and mythology stories that I've loved. I could rave on and on about the beautiful conjunction of "Dante's Prayer", my Tolkien books, and the scenery, but I think you get the point. Two other points: First, the diary entries that she includes in the liner notes add so much more to the songs. Second, I have to confess that I actually find her music more beautiful than Tori Amos' songs, and I never thought I'd find something better than Tori.
