Thomas Kemmer In its perceived intimacy, it often beats the originals. Favorite track: Want It Back.

Sven B. Schreiber Excellent unplugged voice/piano rendering of all "Theatre Is Evil" tracks, except for the intro and Jherek Bischoff's orchestral intermission, written and performed by an exceptional multi-talented artist, to whom the word "independent" isn't just a word. These acoustic versions are no less rich in sound than their fully arranged counterparts. A unique blend of chanson, classical music, and alternative rock. Favorite track: The Bed Song.

Frederic Bezies I loved the "full" version, but the "naked" one is sometimes better. Great album ! Favorite track: Do It With a Rockstar.

Pinky Saxton The honesty in the singing and passion in the piano shapes this album and evokes emotion the way I have come to expect from Amanda Palmer. Favorite track: The Bed Song.

about

this is PIANO IS EVIL. a live piano+voice endeavor based on my 2012 kickstarter-funded album "Theatre is Evil", which i recorded with a full band: The Grand Theft Orchestra (bass! drums! guitars! horns! strings! SYNTTTHHHHS!).

the original “Theatre is Evil” is available for FREE/pay-what-you-want at amandapalmer.net. it was originally funded by almost 25,000 people on kickstarter and i am forever grateful for their backing. PIANO IS EVIL was made possible by over 8,000 people supporting my patreon page in October 2016.

if you are enjoying this album, please consider joining the patreon so i can make more unfettered art/music/writing/THINGS, as i want, when i want. it would mean the world to me. go to: patreon.com/amandapalmer

love,
AFP
