Great collection for the un-initiated,
This review is from: Tales of a Librarian: A Tori Amos Collection (Audio CD)
Always being compared to Kate Bush is very unfair on Tori. This collection should go a fair way to dispelling that myth. This focuses us on Tori Amos songwriting skills hence there are no tracks included from the 'Strange Little Girls' CD and also none from the recent Scarlet's Walk album.
Shame that Pretty Good Year was left off also but the accompanying DVD has a version on. The new recordings are all very good and will no doubt tempt the fans who own the original 1st 5 albums to buy this also.
This would make a sensible buy for anyone intrigued by Tori but so far still hesitant about buying any of her back catalogue.
My advice is buy this for a good compilation of the early tracks but also to buy Little Earthquakes and Under The Pink aswell as they deserve to be heard in full.
10 years on and we are still awaiting a Kate Bush follow up to the Red Shoes. In this time Tori has released 6 albums and now a compilation. We also had a live album on Venus aswell.
You cannot fault her on that at least.
