Obvious question.  Which one do you Heart the most? 


NOTE: This is NOT the place to debate Tori's inclusion at ProgArchives.  If you wish to do that, open your own thread in the appropriate place.  Thanks.  Smile

Great. I have heard "only" four albums. Little Earthquakes, Under the Pink, To Venus and Back and Scarlet's Walk.
 
All enjoyable, maybe Under the Pink a little boring. I go with the first one, there's a special energy there so, that... first vote.
Change the program inside... Stay in silence is a crime.

I should add:

Don't feel you have to have heard every single album to vote.  Probably not very many here have, so what's the point of restricting it to a few.  It's for fun.  Wink

I've got all but one of Tori's studio albums, like almost everything she's done, especially her first two albums. Voted for her first because of Winter, my favorite Tori song ever. And, in my mind, if you listen to her arrangements, she's every bit as progressive as Kate Bush or Happy Rhodes. If you like the melancholy side of these singers, check out an unknown gal named Hannah Fury. My daughter turned me on to her music. It's good.

I did that, but it was locked for reasons that remain somewhat murky to me.

I'm pretty torn between Pele and Choirgirl, my two favorites.  My fave depends on the day and mood.  Great albums.

Well, I've just about added in everything I have in my collection (that hasn't been added yet).  All that's left is Tales Of A Librarian CD w/ DVD
and three VHS that are out of print.

I've got a video version of Little Earthquakes, a videos compilation, and a Live in New York concert all on VHS.  I copied them onto DVD.  No telling what shape the tapes are in by now.  They've been well taken care of but they are tapes and not all VHS tapes were made good quality.

I think those are the exact 3 I have too BrianLOL.  Haven't watched em in ages though. 

I saw her itinerary for LE and she played First Ave on that tour.  God I can't believe I missed that.  You could literally have walked right up and stood next to her piano.

I have Little Earthquakes in my collection and I have heard Under the Pink. Little Earthquakes is great (and,  if I may say so, a good reason for Tori's inclusion in PA), but I was not charmed by its successor.

Great to see Tori Amos on the PollClap
 
I have them all!!!
 
My vote went for Little Earthquakes, but that position changes very often with Boys for Pele (the first cd i heard of her!). They are really wonderfull (and depressingConfused)!
 
Altough i respect her so so much, i admit there is an album that is a "cutting-point" - the beekeeper: i just can´t listen to any of their last albums "american doll  posse, abnormally attracted to sin or this weird midwinter graces"...............Cry
 
i gave them a try but they are all so long and her singing and songwriting and even the lyrics have become different........
"when routine bites hard and ambitions are low,
and resentment rides high but emotions won´t grow
And we´re changing our ways, taking different roads..
Then love, love will tear us apart again.."

many wonderful songs, perhaps too many albums .. fans should look into Forgotten Earthquakes: B Sides and Rarities  http://www.last.fm/music/Tori+Amos/Forgotten+Earthquakes:+B-Sides+and+Rarities

I'm very happy to see her on PA, thanks to all concerned for her inclusion.

She's my very favourite artist bar none, the one I can always listen to, even when the prospect of anything else seems uninteresting.

I find all her albums to have a very high standard, although Strange Little Girls are covers, and it does show a bit.

I hestiate to name a favourite, but with a gun to my head I do tend to lean slightly towardsAmerican Doll Posse. A 5 1/2 star album.
