Too bad that inspiration didn’t produce stronger lyrics. The concept is interesting, but it’s forced, with predictable imagery lifted right out of Wizard of Oz.
It doesn’t help matters that “Blown Away” is out at the same time, which took this imagery to far more compelling territory. It sounds a lot more creative than it really is.
“Tornado” rumbles and grumbles, but it never gets off the ground.
