This is the album-matching folio to Tori Amos' sprawling and ambitious 9th studio album that debuted at at number five on the US charts, spawning the hit single Big Wheel.
Political and confrontational in nature, the songs on the album are presented from the viewpoint of five different characters that make up the American doll posse from the title. With over twenty tracks, this is an album brim-full of excellent art-pop, all testament to Amos’ skill and longevity as a singer-songwriter and performer.
AMAZING!!! This book is a gem and everything in it is just what Tori plays on her album. It also includes 17 pages of photos. There is NO vocal in the piano part, thank god. All the pieces are playable but some harder than others, Dragon, Beauty of Speed, Dark Side Of The Sun and Code Red being some of the harder pieces. Dark Side Of The Sun is an amazing piano piece and Dragon gets tricky with the left hand. Girl Disappearing is classic Tori and Almost Rosey is such an amazing song. The only thing I wished was in the book is the song My Posse Can Do! Other than that this is worth every penny and you will have hours upon hours of playing. Anonymous

By far the most accurate Tori Amos songbook. Everything here is note perfect. Even Fat Slut which features no piano, just screeching guitars, has been transcribed accurately. Although the previous two Tori songbooks were (mostly) on the right track, they have as a whole, left much to be desired.I hope this book is a sign of things to come with future songbooks. Anonymous
