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

As she admits in the comments track to the videos, she keeps the actual meanings of many of her inventive lyrics to herself so don't expect many revelations in that area. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Ron Fent
I like that Tori chose to use the newer mixes from Tales of a Librarian. I know that a lot of fans don't like that but I think Silent and Winter in particular have never sounded... Read morePublished 22 months ago by Cough Drop Queen
