Editors’ Notes

Here as always vocalist/pianist/songwriter Tori Amos presents her singular creative voice with impressive attention to lyrical narrative. The lead off single, “Welcome to England,” presents a nervous-sounding instrumental backing and electronic beats on the verse and resolution in the form of a comforting, synth pad-laden chorus. “Not Dying Today” has a clean, classic rock shuffle sound as realized by a full band, while those craving some solo Amos will enjoy “Mary Jane,” her piano-and-voice tale of a mother and her coming-of-age son. All instruments come together in a shimmering chamber-type gathering for “Flavor” — ghostly guitar, sparse piano, and pensive bass, anchored by Amos’ searching voice. “Fire to Your Plain” has both a swagger and a syncopation that her fans have come to love, while “Ophelia” highlights her elegant piano work and gift for self-accompaniment. 

Customer Reviews

5 Stars

I have not truly enjoyed a Tori Amos album this much since To Venus and Back. Tori seems to be at ease with this album, doing what she does best. Many of the songs have a darker vibe than the past few albums and the songs are better executed. Give, Welcome to England, Flavor, Maybe California, Curtain Call, Police Me, That Guy, Abnormally Attracted to Sin, 500 Miles, Starling, Fast Horse, Ophelia, & Lady in Blue are all on par with her best work.

Impressive, but not her BEST work...

Give is haunting in its appeal, a memorable song - the visualette gave impressions of desperation....Strong Black Vine seemed pitchy to me...Maybe California was tinged with a certain amount of sadness...Curtain Call is easily and by far my favorite track on this album, with Mary Jane a playful close second. Fast Horse was somewhat h***y tonk, feeling like it should be the theme of a Wild West movie...Ophelia seemed a reflection of tragedy...Writ by Miss M May 28/09

Tori Amos (born Myra Ellen Amos) was one of several female singer/songwriters who combined the stark, lyrical attack of alternative rock with a distinctly '70s musical approach, creating music that fell between the orchestrated meditations of Kate Bush and the stripped-down poetics of Joni Mitchell. In addition, she revived the singer/songwriter traditions of the '70s while re-establishing the piano as a rock & roll instrument. With her 1992 album Little...
