I'm a hugeTori fan. I consider all of her albums up to Scarlet's Walk masterpieces . While The Beekeeper, American Doll Posse, and Abnormally Attracted To Sin had a handful of good songs ( Jamaica Inn, Code Red, Dragon , Ophelia , Lady In Blue ), I felt like they were bloated , self-indulgent albums with too much filler and experimentation . I understand that every artist needs to mature , but I felt that Tori took too many misteps in the past decade. Night of Hunters reaffirmed my faith in Tori with its complex song structures and beautiful vocals. Now we have Unrepentant Geraldines , an album that triumphantly showcases the Tori of the 90's with a more refined , mature delivery . One of the elements missing from age 50 Tori is the anger and fire of her youth, which is expected. Tori has restrained her anger but remains whimsical and eccentric as always . The title track is pure Tori with a mid-song piano breakdown that is just awesome . Oysters may be her most beautiful song since Jackie's Strength or Father Lucifer , or at least Ophelia. Invisible Boy is heart-wrenching in its beauty . Even the odd, campy track Giant's Rolling Pin serves as a fun break in the melancholy of the album ;it feels like an old Beatles Tune from Yellow Submarine . The piano playing on this album is stunning and well thought out . Tori's vocals have not sounded this good since Under The Pink . Tori may not be as wild as she was in the 90's and no longer has an axe to grind , but she is still one of the best artists around . If you loved Little Earthquakes up to Scarlet's Walk , you will enjoy this album ! Check out the digital version for the bonus song Dixie and Forest of Glass on the digipack version . Welcome back , Mrs. Amos !

I've been a Tori fan since the beginning of her career and her recent albums have been a mixed bag for me (some songs I really love and others I routinely skip over). That being said, I didn't really expect anything nearly as brilliantly cohesive as Scarlet's Walk and before. However, being the mega Tori fan I am, I was super excited for this album to come out. I have to tell you that I was not disappointed and my excitement has now been validated.

The first few times I listened to this UG, I liked it but wasn't completely in love. I thought a few of the songs were alright but not outstanding ("Promise" being one of them). Now after giving it more listens, I have to say I LOVE it and the few "ok" songs grew on me...a lot. So if you think it all of the songs sound the same or are boring, then make sure you don't dismiss them right away. I love how she switches up her voice (hitting those high notes), the melodies, and instrumentation in the songs to add layers and variety. A prime example of this is in the title track, which is one of my favorites on the album. There's a strong and passionate piano riff right in the middle of the song that initially takes you by surprise.

Oysters and Weatherman brought tears to my eyes the first few listens. In fact, I clapped after hearing them and declared "Tori is back!!" They sound like they could be straight from "Scarlet's Hidden Treasures".

I know there are mixed reviews of "Giant's Rolling Pin", but I actually like it. It's a quirky song akin to "Programmable Soda" and again, it adds variety to the album. "White Telephone to God", although a bonus track, is another fun and quirky song that I absolutely adore.

After several months of listening, I've come to believe that this album is some of the most genuine music Tori has put out since The Beekeeper. I know a lot of fans weren't crazy about The Beekeeper, but it felt honest and true to where Tori was musically in her life at the time she released it. The same is true for Unrepentant Geraldines. Instead of trying to appease certain sects of her fan base by rocking out (*ahem*--American Doll Posse), most tracks are piano-driven, with electric guitar playing second fiddle on the tracks where it is present. There are also nice touches of Hammond organ and some interesting percussion. I would recommend purchasing the physical CD to get the bonus track "Forest of Glass." I wasn't initially floored by the track, but it quickly grew to be one of my favorites.

I joined the Tori wagon around the "Under The Pink" era and was a rabid fan throughout the 90s. For the past 14 years I've been generally disappointed with every new release. I could echo many of the same complaints: indulgent tracklists, bloated concepts, filler songs. She was also very good at changing up the production and sonic landscape of each album in the 90s, but then perhaps got too comfortable with one sound. It pains me in a way to criticize, because I understand artists need freedom to do what they do, and I love Tori, but let's just say she and I weren't jiving for a long time.

Unrepentant Geraldines recalls everything I loved about her in the 90s, but doesn't at all feel like an attempt to recapture the past. It seems to make absolutely perfect sense for the Tori of 2014, both lyrically and musically. Although I have my favorites, every song here is great! I'm so relieved and happy and excited for what this could mean for the future, as well. Back on the wagon!
