In case you missed it, Tori Amos released DELUXE 2CD Editions of two of her best received, most popular albums – Little Earthquakes (1992) and Under The Pink (1994) on April 14th through Rhino records. Both releases feature completely remastered versions of the original album PLUSlive tracks, B-Sides, covers and other rarities, including a cover of Nirvana‘s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
As a gay man, I feel sort of guilty that I’m not a more MASSIVE Tori Amos fan. Don’t get me wrong, I think she’s MEGA-TALENTED and of course I have some favorite songs (albeit, some of her more commercial cuts; “Silent All These Years,” “A Sorta Fairytale,” and “Professional Widow” – The Armand Van Helden remixes) I just never fully got on the bandwagon. That being said, I feel like this would all change if I saw her live. The problem for me was the first (and only) Tori Amos album I ever bought – American Doll Posse (2007) – a concept album. While the concept itself was intriguing (Tori assuming 5 different female personalities, inspired by Greek mythology) the music did not connect with me (although the album artwork sure did). After that album, I reverted back to my passive appreciation of Amos and her rich back catalog.
With the release of these classic, iconic Tori Amos albums I find myself inspired to give her another go. I love the unique quality of her voice, I love her ability to tell a story and send a powerful message. I think maybe I need a little Tori Amos in my life.
