The Tori Amos thread

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by ladygagaogaga, Aug 19, 2013.

  1. Under The Pink is my favourite album of all time. Everything about it, is outstanding. *looks at framed poster of the album cover*
     
  2. Little Earthquake was my 'coming out of the closet' album. And it has taught me a lot about feminism.

  3. Baker Baker is a beautiful song and one of my favorites. Tori does heartbreak like no other.
     
  4. I just kind of assume Tori and Depeche just aren't "Pop" enough for the main forum.
    Perhaps George Michael, Bowie and the PSBs had had many more "Popular" hits and the younglings know who they are?
    Anyway I don't mind that Tori is in here, I come here more often I think.
     
  5. As long as Macy Gray, George Michael, Alanis Morissette and Lena Philipsson are in the main forum, Tori should be moved there as well.
     
  6. Macy Gray has her own thread?!
     
  7. And Sade

  8. So I've officially made my way through Little Earthquakes, Under the Pink, and Boys For Pele. I can confidently say that Little Earthquakes is my favorite. Then Under the Pink. Boys is third.

    My favorite things I've heard from her are Crucify, Winter, Sugar, and the only post-these-albums song I know Sorta Fairytale.

    The Y Kant Tori Read on the other hand, remains an absolute treasure.

  9. ^^ I'm not sure how much you've played them but Earthquakes is fabulous but definitely the most instant of the three. The other two took several more listens but both reveal themselves to be equally good if more left field with time.
     
  10. This is what I'm expecting. Sort of like Jagged Little Pill being the instant favorite, but now being my actual fourth favorite Alanis album.

  11. - when the live improvs are infinitely superior to some artists' studio recorded work, you know they are truly something special.
     
  12. Does Tori have an 0304, Liz Phair, or to a less obvious extent So-Called Chaos in her catalogue? I love when these 90's alt-girls lean into the pop sensibilities.
     
  13. Not for the course of a full album. These are probably as pop as she gets.



     
  14. Oh my, I can't believe how the RSD re-relase of Y Kant Tori Read went unnoticed for me! Just might have to score a copy somewhere, as I'd love to replace my bootleg copy of the CD. Is the remastering any good?

  15. It's brilliant! Then again I never heard any bootleg version, but the songs are in stunning quality in my opinion.

  16. I had a friend who told me she loved to ride her horse while playing Yes, Anastasia. What a religious experience that must be.
     
  17. I had never heard Y Kant Tori Read, until I bought the CD and LP before Christmas. It is indeed a very good album and IMO better than most of the stuff she has released since the late 90s. "Cool On Your Island" is now one of my all time favorite Tori songs.

  18. Cool during the Strange Little Girls era was always a favourite of mine. Really let's that gorgeous melody shine. She plays it live all the time and I'm so glad she appreciates her first album the way she does.
     
  19. Yes, I found a great live video of Cool from a few years back. The songs is even more beautiful in a stripped down piano version.
     
  20. Cool on Your Island is my favorite Tori track. Utterly gorgeous.
