Product Description

The Video Collection: Fade to Red is a look at the unique and compelling videos that illustrate Tori Amos' musical vision. It features such memorable clips as "Silent All These Years," "Crucify," "Cornflake Girl," and "A Sorta Fairytale," along with videos from her most recent CD release, The Beekeeper. Tori is arguably one of the few artists who truly captures the essence of her music in video through striking images and cinematography which makes this a must-have for any devotee or casual fan. Also included is a comprehensive audio commentary by Tori herself. Track Listings: Past the Mission, Crucify, Jackie's Strength, Sorta Fairytale, Winter, Spark, Sleeps with Butterflies, Cornflake Girl, Hey Jupiter, Silent All These Years, Caught A Lite Sneeze, 1000 Oceans, God, Bliss, China, Raspberry Swirl, Talula, Sweet the Sting, Pretty Good Year, Professional Widow (Remix), Cornflake Girl (U.K. Version)


The combination of music, visuals, and the artist's commentary makes for compelling entertainment in Tori Amos - Video Collection: Fade to Red. Spanning Amos' entire career (from 1992's Little Earthquakes through 2005's The Beekeeper) and compiled on a two-disc set, these 19 videos feature some very striking images: the decidedly weird special effects in "A Sorta Fairytale," making Amos and actor Adrien Brody's heads appear where knees and hands ought to be; the bound and blindfolded Amos in the dark and disturbing "Spark"; Spanish women lying in the street as a handsome priest passes among them in "Past the Mission"; the slow-motion riot scenes in "1000 Oceans," Amos' response to the 1992 Los Angeles riots. But the singer-songwriter-pianist's breathy commentary track is as the dramatic as the videos themselves. Usually referring to herself in the third person, Amos admits to "a fascination with the beheading of Anne Boleyn… the illicit mistress of the Protestant reformation," identifies with "the Black Madonna, the independent woman… who is being shamed for her sensuality," describes the "Cornflake Girl" video as "evil on a playground… sort of Mean Girls before there was Mean Girls," and regularly references mythology. What she doesn't explain is why the same bonus features (two extra tracks and a making-of featurette) appear on both discs, or why a couple of fan favorites (like "Strange Little Girl") aren't included at all. --Sam Graham

Rhino has developed a reputation for doing good work with artists' back catalogues. "Fade to Red" is their first effort delving into the work of Tori Amos, and while it has some good things, it really could have (and should have) been so much better.

As many reviewers are noting, the collection is missing the film clips for Strange Little Girl and Glory Of The 80s - despite the fact that it's sprawled across two DVDs. If Rhino were committed to doing a really good job, they wouldn't have released this until the legal wrangles were sorted. If they were doing a GREAT job they would have fought hard to get The Big Picture as well, from Tori's early career which she has begun to acknowledge. But instead we get something that doesn't even include the regular canon.

That problem pales, though, to what has been done to the audio. Everything has been remastered and the quality is very good, but many of the videos have been divorced from their original audio track. Instead, we get the 'reconditioned' versions from the Tales of a Librarian CD.

The consequences of this decision vary. Sometimes the changes are so minimal that it makes little difference, or possibly even enhances the video slightly - the one noticeable change in 'God' fits nicely with the images at that moment. In other songs, though, the changes are distracting (in one part of 'Cornflake Girl', for example, the lead vocal has been relegated to a backing part). In the case of 'Crucify', the result is nothing short of a train wreck - they couldn't even get the audio and video to end at the same time.

It's alarming to think that whoever was responsible for putting this collection together understood the artistic balance of pictures and music so poorly as to let these things get through.

The latest Tori Amos release is a video retrospective, gathering together all of her videos from throughout her solo career-with the exception of "Glory of the 80s" and "Strange Little Girl." "Fade to Red" offers new fans and old regulars the first chance to own these videos with DVD-quality video transfers and remastered in Dolby 5.1 surround and PCM stereo audio. All songs were remastered by Jon Astley, not by Tori herself; one might look on this fact with hopeful anticipation of further Rhino remasters of her earlier work, as Astley has worked with Rhino re-releases before.

The video quality is fantastic throughout "Fade to Red," and the audio is impressive as well. The only issues I have experienced with the DVD playback have been with a couple of the Cindy Palmano-directed videos. On my lower-end (cheap) DVD player, during "Winter" and "Crucify," the video became very jumpy and the audio cut in and out. On my high-end Sony machine, though, everything played flawlessly. Both of the discs are immaculate. In other words, if you experience similar hiccups with the playback, it's probably the player and not the discs themselves. The menus on the DVD are animated, with Tori's video clips playing within frames to make them look like individual photographs and Tori's songs making up the background music. There's even one especially nice transition using a clip from the "Winter" video.

The packaging for the release is very high-quality, and the "Past the Mission" cut-out is my favorite part, with a cut-out church from the video shoot holding the set's paperwork in place. The track lists and title on the packaging are stamped in an auburn foil, and the whole color scheme and appearance of the materials seems very lush and rich.

It's about time Tori's videos are released on DVD. Her videos are often as abstract and just as deep as her songs - for the most part. "Caught a Lite Sneeze", "1000 Oceans", Jackie's Strength" and both versions of "Cornflake Girl" are the stand-out vidoes, the best of the collection. Not included in this collection are the videos for "Mary", "Strange Little Girl", "Glory of the 80s" and Jackie's Strength - Wedding Cake Edit." I'm not too broken up about the ones that were not included. Mary is a made up of a hodgepodge of video clips from her former videos (very similar to Professional Widow). I enjoyed watching Strange Little Girl, and out of the four, I think this one should have made it on the DVD. I didn't really care for the Glory of the 80s video; it didn't make much sense, and didn't really fit the song (however, I liked the edited version of the song which was used for the video. Jackie's Strength - Wedding Cake Edit is actally the same video used for the video of Jackie's Strength - Album Version, but adjusted for the length of the remix. I have only seen it on launch.yahoo.com. All in all, I am very satisfied with what was included on the DVD.

I love Tori Amos. I love her music, I love her style. Combine that and I love her music videos. Sometimes they were simple yet effective. Others, there was a mini movie to be seen. But nonetheless, I've always enjoyed her videos. She had already put out a video collection. Back in 1998, she released "The Complete Videos" and featured all of her videos from 1992-1998 (excluding "Professional Widow" video, which was clips from her previous videos edited to the dance remix). But since she had put out new music videos from 1999-2005, it was time to update. I was very excited to see her recent videos since I've never seen them, and get a nice quality of her older videos. When I bought this DVD, I was giddy with anticipation. When I watched it, I was very happy. The video quality is beautiful, though some have a grainy look, but that was due to the type of cinematography that was used for that particular video. The sound is great, thought I don't have DTS so I wasn't able to enjoy that aspect of the DVD.

But, as my name titled says, not everything can be perfect for me. (ok, that's a lie, I'm just finicky!). For one thing, for the video "Crucify", the original had the single remix version that was used. For the DVD, it's a choppy version of the "Tales of a Librarian" reworked version, and it's bad. It doesn't flow together with the video like the original does. Plus, two very important music videos are missing. "Glory of the 80s" from the album To Venus and Back, and "Strange Little Girl" from the album Strange Little Girls. There was some talk about copyright violation or something about why they weren't on there. Whatever the reason, it's a shame they aren't included, which would make this DVD collection perfect.

There are extras to see.
