iTunes Review

This album is Mastered for iTunes. Rather than simply release a greatest hits collection to celebrate the 20 years that have passed since she broke through with Little Earthquakes, Tori Amos revisits her catalog with these recordings with the Metropole Orchestra. Essentially, she covers her own songs here, treating them as new mysteries with answers still to find. The orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley, is tasteful, adding just the right amount of tension and drama to Amos' grand performances. While this album could be two or three times its actual length and still be leaving out something worth revisiting, the choices are inspired, bringing new hues to "Yes, Anastasia," "Jackie's Strength," "Winter" and "Marianne" just for starters. Amos' gorgeous musicality is present throughout.

Customer Reviews

Stop messing with perfection!

Other than for monetary gains, I don't understand why Tori Amos insists on re-releasing the same songs and she's already produced once. She's the queen of remake, only it's our own stuff with an unfortunate spin for the times that she is currently in. I wish she would stop messing with perfection. The only time that it's okay to hear an alternate version of the same song is live in concert, other than that leave it alone. If she wants to make more money selling the same songs, what I would like to see her do is to release all the music sans the words like she did with her last album.

Wonderful

This is a *new* record and should be treated as such. This record is a collection of snapshots (frozen frames in "Gold Dust") from Ms. Amos' life.

This is in no way, shape, or form a 'greatest hits' record. It is a look back at 20-some-odd years with a very present context and classical composition.

I love it very much already. It's a look back at my life too - every bit of it.

Thank you, yet again, T.

P.S. The packaging is top-drawer. It would be a wonderful gift for anyone who loves good music.

Why

All she really needs is a piano, her voice and her song. That's all. The orchestration is superfluous.

Biography

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
