The follow-up to 2002's “Scarlet's Walk,” the fiery earth-sprite has fashioned another high minded concept album, tying her 20 songs into a garden motif that is part Alice in Wonderland, and part autobiographical journey. This is an overgrown labyrinth of the subconscious as her protagonist experiences a series of life altering events and emotions. The Beekeeper sees the return of the quirky singer to the familiar, whimsical terrain of her 1992 smash Little Earthquakes, but with stronger and more tangible storylines and a much more assured and nuanced voice.
