The 10 Best Tori Amos Songs

The early ’90s brought a wealth of change to pop music, and while the spoils of the dynamic shifts may have gone to the flannel-clad misanthropes of Seattle, the longevity and distinction of Tori Amos’ influence is a story almost as unique as her lyrics. Much of the criticism directed at Amos has concerned the… More »

Tori Amos has a new album called Unrepentant Geraldines coming out next week, and we’ve already posted lead single “Trouble’s Lament” and a live radio rendition of “Selkie.” The third selection to emerge is “16 Shades Of Blue,” a moody bit of electronic piano pop that reminds me how many of the ultra-hip dramatists clogging… More »

Tori Amos – “Trouble’s Lament”

It’s been five years since the last “real” Tori Amos album, Abnormally Attracted To Sin, but the singer/pianist is officially back. “Trouble’s Lament” is exactly what we want from Tori: quietly mobile piano and simple guitar figures; a sucrose sound that hints at something more sour. The lyrics tell a story about how trouble seem… More »

Hear The Original, Tori Amos-Sampling Version Of Four Tet’s “Unspoken”

Rounds, the third album from the bucolic British producer Four Tet, was his big breakout moment, the album where his fusion of pastoral folk and head-blown inward-looking electronic music found its fullest realization.

Little Earthquakes Turns 20

Last year, the eminently lovable hardcore pro-wrestling legend Mick Foley wrote a weirdly fascinating Slate article about how he came to become a Tori Amos superfan.
