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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Tori changes things up... 15 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
As a long time Tori fan I have been hoping for some time that she would hand in a more piano-centric album, a return to her girl-and-a-piano roots of old. And with Unrepentant Geraldines she has finally delivered this.

This is the first album (sans the classically-inspired Night Of Hunters) since the mid-90s not to feature long-time collaboraters Matt Chamberlain (drums) and Jon Evans (bass). So inevitably the album is less of a band affair, featuring no less than seven tracks with only Tori and her piano. The rest of the tracks have drums programmed by her husband, who also adds his usual guitar flourishes throughout.

One thing that struck me listening to this record is that her vocals sound more controlled and strong than her more recent albums, utilising her upper range to great effect, at times harking back to her vocal stylings on Little Earthquakes.

As for the songs, title track Unrepentant Geraldines is an utter masterpiece in my eyes. The main body of the song is largely experimental and unpredictable, shifting between contrasting sections with ease, a reggae tinged verse, leading into a punk-rock style bridge, then going into a piano-centred anthemic chorus. Just when you think you've wrapped your head around the song it ends abruptly and goes into a beautiful piano-centred outro section, which, on a first listen could very easily be mistaken for an entirely different song. It really has to be heard to be believed.

Other highlights include the haunting Weatherman and the gloriously quirky Beatles-esque Giants Rolling Pin.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Tori album in a LONG time 13 May 2014
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
Is this the best Tori Amos album? No.
However, is this still a fantastic album? Yes.
Everyone remembers the unconventional and, at times, groundbreaking debut "Little Earthquakes" and the 3 albums that immediately followed - "Under The Pink", "Boys for Pele" and "From The Choirgirl Hotel". Tori's output up to and including 2002's "Scarlet's Walk" was pretty flawless, however in recent years her albums have become overly long, bloated and full of filler. After a period of revisiting her childhood classical training and working on a musical with London's National Theatre, Tori has returned to making contemporary music. I'm trying to avoid the word "pop", because she's never made "pop" music. Whilst this isn't the greatest Tori album, it's most certainly worthy to bare her name, with songs like "Wild Way", "Invisible Boy" and "Selkie" echoing her earlier piano orientated work, and "16 Shades Of Blue" and "Rose Dover" containing elements reminscent of her electronic work on "From The Choirgirl Hotel" and "To Venus And Back".

Vocally, Tori sounds better than she has in at least 10 years and her piano playing is on point. Both lyrically and musically compelling and interesting, the album is exactly how you would expect Tori to sound at this stage in her career, ignoring her 2 most recent contemporary efforts "American Doll Posse" and "Abnormally Attracted To Sin", which now sound more like a desperate cry for help during a midlife crisis than compelling music.

"Giant's Rolling Pin" is a bit unnecessary and "Promise" (a duet with Tori's daughter), though a nice song, sounds out of place on the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of her better albums 18 Sep 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is no Little Earthquakes or Scarlet's Walk but it's among the best of the rest in my opinion.

I like enough of Amos's work to call myself a fan. Far too many previous works though have served only to inspire me to listen again to the amazing Little Earthquakes. I do like Geraldines but I'm unrepentant about preferring her older sibling from 1992. Still standing strong as the years pass by, that album is one of my top five favourites of all time by any artist.

That said, this album has some catchy tunes and none of those awful growling ones she sometimes slips into her work! The album opens well but the first to catch the ear is track two, Trouble's Lament, which jaunts along like a gentle Country track. Dropping down a few gears, Wild Way opens whispering 'I hate you' but this is not a song about hatred but a sweet song about submission to love. The duet with her daughter, Promise, just about manages to avoid being cringeworthy. The title track tells an interesting story of breaking free from religion. Its changes in tempo and style fooled me into thinking I was listening to the next song at one point. The rest of the album contains just enough melody and story told with her unique and at times haunting vocals.

Tori fans should appreciate the album. Newcomers would need to be patient and perhaps be in the right frame of mind. Better still, start with the two albums in my opening paragraph and if they win you over try Unrepentant Geraldines. I'd give it 3.5 stars out of 5 if Amazon permitted. The download comes with a bonus track and digital booklet. I paid the extra fifty pence for the version with the videos but I've yet to watch them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sinfully unrepentant 12 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
"Earthquakes" was shattering; "Pink" was magnificent; "Pele" was explosive; "Choirgirl" was mesmerising; "Venus" was stellar; "Scarlet" was stunning: and there you have arguably the absolute Tori-top. And then it all went downhill, leaving hardcore fans inconsolable, and the rest of the world rather indifferent. At 50, and totally owning her own genre, for her new album Tori packs half-century of experiences into 59 minutes, in her fiery piano confessional style, bearing them straight from the heart. Though it is not a drastic change from her familiar style, it is much more inviting and accessible than the infamous trilogy of "The beekeeper", "American doll posse" and "Abnormally attracted to sin" which clouded fans / listeners. In fact, "Unrepentant Geraldines" easily could have been the follow-up to "Scarlet's walk", picking up exactly right where that record left off.

For anyone who will not dismiss this set upon its first listening, they will soon find themselves drawn to it. It seems as though Tori has taken some of her past albums' great moments, and create perhaps the most interesting work she has ever done. Letting the songs come together on their own, here she abandons the disastrous, inaccessible content of over-reaching concepts, complex writing, and lengthy duration of late albums, and steps forward with a lighter, yet mature, self-assured, yet heart-warming, captivating record. "Selkie" and the title track are examples of her unparalleled songwriting magnificence, while "Oysters" and closing track "Invisible boy" evokes simultaneously strength and vulnerability, in the most heart-wrenching way. It has always been Tori's art that made her unique, but it is her heart that made her precious. "Geraldines" are glorious.
