Tori Amos: The making of Unrepentant Geraldines

Biography

Tori Amos has an extraordinary fan base. It’s not unusual to hear her listeners explain how a song changed their life, through its ability to alter perspective and heal. Or even that a song might have saved their life. Since the release of her debut Little Earthquakes 20 years ago in 1992, where she smashed apart boundaries with her piano rock and raw, confessional poetry, Amos continues ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and unique October 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is Tori's eighth solo effort, and she has definately matured from Little Earthquakes. LE was a perfect album for adolescent angst. Under the Pink explored the complex and often sinister relationships formed between women. Boys for Pele was a dark wilderness of anger and pain. From the Choirgirl Hotels was a cityscape of dark, manic songs. To Venus and Back had heavy electronica, but maintained a sparse, desert-like sound. Strange Little Girls had Tori playing the role of thirteen women with tales to tell. Now, she's made the perfect drivng CD.
Every track here is individually stunning, but is best heard all together. Stylistically, this album is a cross between Pink and Choirgirl. Her lyrics here are not nearly as obscure as they were on Pele or Venus, but remain as poignant and Tori-like as the most discerning fan could wish for. Each track made me want to follow Scarlet' footsteps...
"Amber Waves" is one of my favorite tracks here. The chorus is enchanting, and the end of the song is sweet.
The album version of "A Sorta Fairytale" is a little shocking--the most controversial verse was taken out for radio play, and the song comes to a definate end, rather than trailing off.
"Wednesday" is a weird song. I don't really like it, but that's pending further listening.
"Strange" is the "Baker, Baker" of this album. Slow, mellow, and heartbreaking, but not the sort of thing I generally listen to.
"Carbon"--the track that I most wanted to hear--was phenomenal. The guitar melodies and drum loops cascade (punctuating names of famous ski trails).
For me, the song "Crazy" hit really close to home. It sounds a lot like "Strange." The chorus "let's just unzip your religion down" is one of the great Tori-isms of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of 2002: the best comes to those who wait! February 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After over ten years of recording albums, Tori was finally able to match her the achievement of her musical debut, 'Little Earthquakes.' 'Scarlet's Walk' does just that: she's back, after a not-so-brilliant 'Strange Little Girls' made up of versions in 2001, with an album for posterity, what could be a considered an album for the road and one that you can't take out of the CD player once you pop it in. The first couple of songs ("Amber Waves" and "A Sorta Fairytale") set the stage for what's left down the road... "Carbon" and "Crazy" take things up a notch, making you beg for more. But the true best lies toward the end: in "I Can't See New York" she reminds of Kate Bush more often than not. The strength of her Bosendorfer is coupled with Matt Chamberlain's exquisite bass and an impeccable drums work to yield a song for the ages. The great music doesn't stop. It's all "downhill" in a spiral of amazing tracks back-to-back after #12, to top it all with the closing "Gold Dust," in my opinion, one of the best pieces of music and lyrics Tori has ever composed. Thanks for it all, Tori. You brought life back into the void that no one else has been able to fill!

5.0 out of 5 stars The album fans have been waiting for. November 1, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For the original Tori Amos fans, those who have been around since "Little Earthquakes", there has been a certain sound that seemed lost on her most recent releases. While Choirgirl, Venus, and strange little girls all have there moments, fans have been longing for the quiet, peacefull and sometimes just bizarre Tori that won their hearts so many years ago. For those fans comes Scarlet's Walk. Tori latest release re-captures her old sound while not copying it. All the songs on the CD, while in her old style have a life and identity of their own. From the opening song, Amber Waves, to the well known,A sorta fairytale, Tori instantly grabs our attention with the personal and intimate lyrics that we we never seem to understand, yet always can relate to. We see many new sides to her aswell as getting back in touch with the Tori we already know. She takes risk with the old fashion sound of Wednesday, takes us to a special place in her heart with the different, yet beautiful sound of Your cloud, gives us a haunting and suprisingly non-cliche statement on the 9/11 attacks with I can't see New York, and takes us back to her old symphony days with Gold Dust. My only reservations about the album is that to of the strongest songs, Scarlets Walk and Wampum Prayer are so short that leave a lot to be desired. But maybe that's the way of this passionate and instantly addictive new release from of the most talented and intriguing artist of our time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Much Relieved November 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
After being very disappointed with her monotonous covers album, 'Strange Little Girls', and only mildly taken with her last studio album, 'To Venus And Back', I was a little skeptic about buying 'Scarlet's Walk'. When I heard "A Sorta Fairytale" on the radio, however, it sort of reminded me of two of my favorite Tori Amos songs, "Cruel" and "God". So naturally (being the Tori fan that I am) I decided to give the album a go, but with very low expectations.
The first time I listened to 'Scarlet's Walk', I admit to being a little shattered with a not too good impression, but after giving it several run-throughs it began to grow on me, which made me feel very relieved. If I didn't like this album I was afraid that I would no longer be able to call myself a Tori Amos fan because of recent let-downs, but songs like the quirky "Wednesday" (which brings me back to her 'Boys For Pele' days), "Crazy", "Sweet Sangria", "Taxi Ride" and (my personal favorite) "Scarlet's Walk" make this all worth the purchase.
What makes this album even more interesting is the fact that Tori wrote this on a cross-country road trip, which she took shortly after the terrorist attacks. And while this album is nothing like my favorite Tori album, 'From The Choirgirl Hotel', at times it reminds me of 'Little Earthquakes' (my second favorite) but is best to be compared to 'Under The Pink'.
'Scarlet's Walk' is much lighter and not so dark in mood as previous albums, but is still guaranteed to please most fans of Tori's earlier works.
