Amazing album, criminally marketed as a "best of". The songs are not just remastered but entirely rerecorded and, in my opinion, superior to the originals. You can tell Amos is a performer, and each new version clearly benefits from being honed by years and years of concerts.

I've known about Tori Amos for years as we all have but have only just got round to buying an album. I thought this would be a good intro to her music on the whole and it probably is.

Ther are a couple of contentious points with this album, though. The first is the remixing. I wanted to hear the original "Professional Widow" not the Van Helden remix. It isn't labelled as this which peeved me a bit (but only a bit) Also "Spark" and "Cornflake Girl" have been messed with, mainly towards the middle/end of the songs, and they lose a bit of their impact (the different piano solo on "Cornflake Girl" is a bit too "different")

All in all this is a good indication of the sometimes anarchic, sometimes emotional quality of Amos' work. There are very few talents like hers in music currently and I'm probably going to buy a couple more of her albums (i.e. "Boys For Pele" and "From The Choirgirl Hotel") just to be sure of that.

I have loved this CD for years! Just had to re-purchase due to scratched CD.
Such a beautiful voice, singing songs with real meaning behind them...a brilliant buy.

The trouble with Tori Amos's music is that it is so interpretive. What do those lyrics and musical foibles actually mean? Ask 100 people and you'll get 100 answers - but that's the point. The music MEANS something to anyone who takes the time to listen to it. And so to this collection - of Tori's "hits" (in the loosest sense) and favourites. These songs are a bit like old friends, and like old friends you have to approach each in a slightly different way. But the difference is that each has been subtly and tastefully reworked - remixed, re-orchestrated and refreshed. They sound so familiar yet so different. There are also 4 new tracks: 2 re-recorded B Sides ("Mary" and "Sweet Dreams") and 2 brand new offerings - "Angels" and "Snow Cherries from France", the latter being one of those understated masterpieces that Tori excels at. Well done Tori for not selling out but producing a collection of integrity and charm. And if you're quick you even get the addition of a bonus DVD of some soundcheck recordings. I've got all Tori's albums but this hasn't been out of my CD player since it arrived through the letterbox. Excellent for novices and fans alike.
