This review is from: From The Choirgirl Hotel (Audio CD)
This is by far my faveourite Tori album and the one I would recommend above all others. It achieves the amazing feat of being both her most accessible, commercial and experimental work. All the songs overflow with energy and emotion and Tori takes you into many different sound worlds. Standout tracks for me were: Spark (her finest single), Raspberry Swirl (which has an almost feverish intensity), Iieee (estatic and haunting) and Northern Lad (one of her most beautiful songs); I also loved the wildness of Hotel.

Funny how opinions differ - I was crazy about Tori Amos at the time (and still regard Under the Pink as probably the best album of the 90s) but this was a major disappointment to me. I love Playboy Mommy and also like Jackie's Strength and Northern Lad but iieee, Liquid Diamonds and Pandora's Aquarium alll left me cold and rank amongst my least favourite Tori tracks. For the rest, okay but not a patch on her previous work and a far cry from Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink form IMHO. I still buy Tori Amos' albums (Scarlet's Walk was a real return to form) but From the Choirgirl Hotel marked a turning point for me as a fan.
