Finally got my hands on a copy of Scarlet Walk. Very interesting album, you are well served to get the collectors edition, despite the cardboard trappings. The Collectors Edition includes a fantastic DVD (yes, a DVD!) of movie clips, notes, interviews, and more. Very good stuff. The disc itself is different from prior Tori works, and ranges from true Alternative to Adult Contemporary. The sound quality is fantastic, and there are some really fantastic numbers. The album's signature cut (Scarlet Walk) is a -very- political statement regarding the last year, and is, well, an opinion. "Your Cloud" a rather Adult-Contemporary tune is much more free-form and vocal driven then a lot of more recent Tori releases. The current track in release "Sort of a Fairytale" is a great number with a unique sound. "Fairytale" seems to be the most radio friendly of the numbers on the album. But don't discount other numbers. "Sweet Sangria", a very alternative cut, could find it's place as well. If you've enjoyed her work in the past - then this is a great release. If you haven't taken the time before, now is most certainly the time!
