Yes, a red haired girl with fairy fingers and up-yours-attitude. Tori Amos' tough, you know . Her music isn't aggressive per se, but she pour so much of herself into every album that I cannot describe her as a weakling or a pushover. She travels, she's mothering, she's creating, she loves and boy she can hate when she wants to. Surviving in the ingrate music buisness demands tough character and a solid carapace to deflect the flame arrows. Well, this is how I see her.

To my opinion, perhaps the clearest concept album by Ms. Amos: America thru her eyes. The booklet is interesting in the fact that the whole 'walk' is described pretty well. States after states, smalltowns, a gas station, heavy clouds, children playing and a cat named Cajun on a Wednesday: Tori is giving us a thick slice of Americana in it's own Bush era.

The hauting voice, the gracious drumming of Matt Chamberlain and the solid bass of Jon Evans, more wurlitzer, more ever flowing piano, more and more stunning lyrics as usual. Described many times as depressing, I frankly don't think so. Described many times as 'music for girls'...I sure hope not!

My choice for starters.
