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 ...

Product Description

Certified at 2 million units by the RIAA. (10/99)

Amazon.com

Under the Pink was Tori Amos' follow-up to the sensationally successful Little Earthquakes and demonstrates that she had by no means run out of faeries and demons to sport with. Amos herself describes it as her "impressionistic" album--her piano playing is perfectly attuned to the subtle, shifting colors of her lyrical moods on "Bells for Her," while "Past the Mission" indicates her growing use of distinctive arrangements to illustrate her songs. Highlights include "God," in which Amos demonstrates her often-missed humor, openly taunting the Almighty for his indifference to humanity, asking "Do you need a woman to look after you?" --David Stubbs

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously Odd But Still Entirely Listenable December 1, 2001
By mike
Format:Audio CD
'Under The Pink' is the definate mid point in vision between the structured, catchy honest confession of 'Little Earthquakes' and the experimental, often formless cryptic 'Boys For Pele.' I feel that with her debut Tori didn't really show off her lyrical acrobats or experimental fancies as well as she was capable of (great album that 'LE' was.) 'BFP' almost had the opposite problems, Tori was at her creative peak, but at a peak that nobody could understand.
'Under The Pink' however, compromises between pop accessibility and creative progression. The lyrics here are definately more cryptic than Little Earthquakes and although are difficult to understand one can usually catch the general gist of most songs (Space Dog, however still baffles me.)In addition, where Tori's debut is very personal 'UTP' attempts the externalise her scope towards inter relationships in peer groups as well as having a good cheeky jab toward christianity.
Musically the album is at its most schitzophrenic, tempos change drastically, not only from track to track, but also within single tracks themselves. Hence 'Pretty Good Year' 'God' 'Cornflake Girl' and 'Space Dog' switch between fesity rock and soft balladry within a moment's notice. Tori experiements with industrial sounds in 'The Waitress' while in 'Bells For Her' she plays on a deconstructed 'prepared' piano that sounds more like clanging bells than a piano. Of course, it wouldn't be a Tori album without the piano and strings, 'Baker Baker' 'Icicle' and 'Cloud On My Tongue' are brilliant, and to a lesser extent 'Yes Anastasia' (which is technically great but fails to sustain my interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh, please! January 19, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Before I begin, I say to people who hate an entire album because they find one song offensive- what do you want her to do, lie about her opinions and beliefs? Just because someone doesn't agree with you doesn't mean they're wrong, bad, or that the musical quality of this CD is compromised. If you want to only hear lyrics that agree with your own particular religious beliefs, go buy some good Christian music or something. *clears throat* Thank you.
Well, Under the Pink is brilliant. I adore Tori Amos for her piano playing as much as for anything else. Pretty Good year starts off the CD- beautiful piano, a light touch of strings, and a very powerful bridge in the middle. Next comes the song with the 'blasphemous' lyrics, God. "God sometimes you just don't come through/do you need a woman to look after you?" Its the fastest, most uptempo song on the CD, you can even dance to it if you feel so inclined. Bells For Her is played on a "pepared" (read 'destroyed') upright piano and is hauntingly beautiful. Past the Mission is the next song, and it has ot be one of my favorites. Guest vocalist Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails blends perfectly, making one of Tori's most melodic, gorgeous songs without being slow and sad. Baker Baker, the song after this, reminds me of a lullaby. The Wrong Band is the song after this. Its got a sorta light jazz feel, but Tori feels as if she's holding back on it- something I don't like. The Wrong Band is one of two songs on this CD I dislike. Now we come to "The Waitress". If people want a disturbing song, forget "God", go with "The Waitress". Its odd and a little spooky, but still quite cool. Next comes the best song (in my opinion) of the CD, CORNFLAKE GIRL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Under the Pink-- 12 Years Later, I'm Still Not Over It August 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
At some point in 1993, the year after her first solo record, Little Earthquakes, took both the US and UK by surprise, Tori Amos spent some time in the high desert. In Taos, New Mexico, no more (and perhaps less) than 200 miles from where I was living at the time (oh, if only I had known!), Tori recorded the tracks that would become her second masterpiece, Under the Pink. It was released the following February, to the great pleasure of yours truly and other odd people with superior taste, giving us a clear indication that this angel/daemon woman who had so blown our minds in '92 was planning on sticking around.

Right from the beginning, Under the Pink is as offbeat and intense as its predecessor. 'Pretty Good Year' opens with a whisper of soft piano and sweet sarcasm, erupts into a violent wail about 2/3 of the way through, then slips back into a peaceful melody on the way out. It's an amazing song, centred upon a letter Tori got from a male fan, complaining about how he didn't know what women wanted, and perhaps also commenting upon the quality of 1992 from her perspective. Next on the agenda is a bracing, rhythmic piece of experimental guitar rock, appropriately titled 'God,' suggesting that the seemingly P.O.ed Patriarch could use some TLC from a good woman, instantly alienating all fundamentalist Christians in four minutes or less, leading all of us who love Tori to breathe a sigh of relief. At least this ensures that we won't be pestered by pamphlet-carrying Protestants at any of her shows. . .

Next is one of the most musically gentle songs she ever wrote: 'Bells For Her,' which seems to be describing the difficulty of seeing either a close female friend or relative get her spirit stifled by some pushy male creature.
