Tori Amos introduces Midwinter Graces

Biography

Tori Amos has an extraordinary fan base. It’s not unusual to hear her listeners explain how a song changed their life, through its ability to alter perspective and heal. Or even that a song might have saved their life. Since the release of her debut Little Earthquakes 20 years ago in 1992, where she smashed apart boundaries with her piano rock and raw, confessional poetry, Amos continues ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding in ambition, and in beauty 16 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
The pop sound of Little Earthquakes, and the big-selling singles, cast Tori Amos as a slightly unbalanced, fragile woman in an evil man's world. Under The Pink sees Tori regrouping and pushing ahead with a quirkier, more unique sound that owes less to conventional verse-chorus songwriting and the exorcism of her personal demons than her debut. Here, we get Tori the storyteller, leading us through tales of murder (Past The Mission), lost love (Baker Baker), female jealousy (The Waitress), and a number of quirky, off-beat songs that appear to owe nothing to anything other than Tori's vivid imagination.
Fortunately, this vivid imagination also extends to the songwriting, and in terms of musical invention, I think this is Tori's finest album. No need to play with keyboard effects and synthesisers like her later albums - this is pretty much Grand Piano only, with a band and string section backing her up through all except the haunting 'Bells For Her'. And although you can conceivably criticise Tori Amos for her lyrical "kookiness", you cannot fault anyone that makes playing piano so well sound so effortless. Although the album's key song (and hit single) was 'Cornflake Girl', this isn't where you find the long-lasting and haunting music. The range of musical expression across the closing four tracks, from Icicle to the classical-pop of Yes Anastasia, are worth the asking price alone and give more of an insight into the dark but beautiful world inside the head of the remarkable Tori Amos.

By Brida TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I admit, when Tori was around in the early 90s, I was amongst those who just saw her as an inaccessable, slightly strange American. I think part of that analysis was due to me not being mature enough to appreciate her music and her creativity (I was only appraoching my early teens, so I was more at home with boy band music). My attitude towards Tori and her music took a dramatic turn when I heard her album SCARLET'S WALK, when I was in my early twenties. Now I love her and her music, she has gone from being a kooky redhead to a goddess, in my opinion. In my world, she is easily the most talented artist that I can think of.

UNDER THE PINK was Tori's second release after LITTLE EARTHQUAKES. In many ways, you can easily find the similarities between the two. In songs such as "God", she once again brings aspects of religion into her music. Even though she challenges God - "God sometimes you just don't come through" - it is done in an intelligent way, a way in which I am sure many people can relate to, whether they have faith or not.
"Past the Mission" sees a guest appearance from Trent Reznor. As on LITTLE EARTHQUAKES which had some songs sampling a male voice aswell as Tori's, the addition of Trent's voice gives the track something more. A depth, perhaps, certainly another layer.
"Baker Baker" is my favourite song from the album. Tori's voice is amazing, as usual, but there is fragility here, almost so much so that ther song could be described as tragic. I read in Jay S. Jacob's biography, "Pretty Good Years", that this song was about the coming undone of her relationship with Eric Rosse.

5.0 out of 5 stars haunting 28 Feb 2007
By Hiro
Format:Audio CD
I am so glad that people below like this CD.

When I bought this CD back in 1994, people used to say her previous 'Little Earthquakes' was far better and this new CD was not as good, which spoiled my excitement to have met this great CD (well, I was 23 and fresh from Tokyo. I just thought I didn't comprehend foreign (to me) music).

After 13 years on, I still listen to 'Under the Pink'. When I play "Pretty Good year" "God" "Bells for her" and "Baker Baker", I feel there are no other songs resemble those songs. What an amazing originality. Most of pop songs sound out of date after a half year, but her songs will never go out of fashion - so I think.

"God sometimes you just don't come through .... Do you need a woman to look after you?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Tori Amos's best of her five albums 25 July 2000
By R.O. P
Format:Audio CD
God is a freaky blast , the Beatles imminence in The Waitress to the bizarre roller coaster moods of Space Dog and the curtain drops on bitter sweet Yes Anastasia. I found Under The Pink one of the most rewarding pop experiences I had ever encountered , a diverse journey of Tori's talents from her heart breaking piano and pleasent screeching tones. Tori's lyrics are original ,versatile and poetic with lyrics such as" monsters in there Easter dresses "cozilly from the nursery and "She's in her pumpkin pj's" to controversially unprintable daring lyrics. Under The Pink stands head and shoulders above all of her other albums ever since listening to Under the Pink, I own all five Tori Amos albums and have seen her on her rare Uk live performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under the Sink 15 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album was my first and is my favourite Tori Amos album. Trying hard not to describe it as the peak in her career, I see it as being after the early-nineties sound of 'Little Earthquakes' and before her more recent albums where she's become a lot more diverse in style.
I'd like to name certain tracks in particular, but they're all so good, there isn't a track on the album that makes you want to skip it when you listen to it. It's packed tight with and an excellent blend of crisp clean piano and guitar. And as for Tori's vocal capabilities, her voice is as dynamic and angelic as ever.
I would definetly recommend this album as a first buy from the Tori collection.
