Album Review

Perhaps Tori Amos didn't intentionally whittle her audience down to merely the rabidly devoted ever since Boys for Pele, but it sure seemed that way with the deliberately abstract arrangements, double albums, and cover records. That devoted cult may be all that pay attention to Scarlet's Walk, her first album for Epic, but it marks a return to the sound and feel of Under the Pink and is her best album since then. Much was made at the time of release about its concept — conceived as a journey through modern womanhood, when Tori herself journeyed through each state in the union — but following the narrative is secondary to the feel of the music, which is warm, melodic, and welcoming, never feeling labored as so much of her last four albums often did. This doesn't mean it's an altogether easy listen: an intensive listen reveals layers of pain and an uneasiness murmuring underneath the surface, but it's delivered reassuringly, in croons and lush arrangements that nevertheless are filled with quirks, making it both comforting and provocative. Which, of course, is what Tori Amos delivered in her early years. If this isn't as startling as Little Earthquakes or majestic as Under the Pink, so be it. It's confident, alluring, and accomplished, luring listeners in instead of daring them to follow. And, frankly, it's a relief that she finally delivered another record like that.

Customer Reviews

love this album

there is so much gorgeous music on this album! it's a bit different from the other tori albums, but so beautiful in places.

OK

There are some gems on this album i.e 'Amber Waves', 'A Sorta Fairytale(My All time Favourite Tori record), 'Crazy' and 'Don't Make me Come to Vegas'. The rest never works for me. Buy 'Under The Pink' instead.

Stunning collection of songs

Some Tori greats on here - "Gold Dust" and "Virginia" are pure beauty but the whole album tells a story that keeps you enthralled in the characters and shows a return to form for Tori.

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...
