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 ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Out of the flux of ambition and distraction and imagination came Tori Amos's 14th studio album: Unrepentant Geraldines. It s a vivid and vital album on which Amos once more zeroes in on the writing of brightly melodic, deftly evocative chamber-pop. Fairy-tale soul-poems, you might say. Or, a view from the middle-aged bridge. Women would talk to me about feeling trapped, which is explored a lot in this record there s a freedom I had writing this record.

Unrepentant Geraldines was written over the past few years and entirely recorded in her Cornwall studio with long-time collaborators Mark Hawley and Marcel Van Limbeek, working as a triangle.

2014 brought a fresh approach to creating and working for Tori. The album features Trouble s Lament, an eerie Southern blues song in which Amos s matchless voice conjures up images of how the flames from Satan s tongue are charged and licking at her heels...

America s South makes a tangential appearance in Giant s Rolling Pin. It s a pithy, spry, jig-like satire on the NSA/Edward Snowden affair that also references the magical, truth-giving powers of pies made by Beth, Marlene and Caroline, three remarkable women based out of a café near Amos s beach home in Florida.

From global and institutional politics to personal and emotional ones: Oysters is a classic Amos piano ballad, evocative of her timeless breakthrough album, 1992 s Little Earthquakes.

Unrepentant Geraldines is available on CD, CD/DVD Deluxe Edition and Vinyl.

Review

I've always been inspired by visual artists of all mediums because, as with Music, Art is not a job you can go to and leave from; but it is something that defines who and what you are.
Visual artists shake up our brains and force us to look at everything, from objects we don't normally think twice about to people we might not have cared about. In one image they can remind us of Nature's power to enchant, as well as
humankind's fruitless attempt to overpower her or simply second-guess her. Through the Visual Artist's application of tone, shape, pattern, and pigment I not only begin to see, but I can honestly say I begin to hear. --Tori Amos

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.

Tori has returned with another strong album and what I feel is that the songs are compartmentalised between two traits that make her stand out: lyrical strength and melody. There are few that score well in both qualities in my opinion. I feel to the impartial listener, the album may sound monotonous due to little variation in the musical arrangements. That said, there are some great songs in there both in terms of a comprehensive package and lyrics to make you ponder. I will focus on a handful of songs to give the reader some idea about what to expect.

America - This song can be taken to mean many things and I listened to it with a smile on my face. There is an explosion of emotions in it but it occurs on the horizon.

Trouble's Lament - This is the strongest song on the album in my opinion and stands out from the other songs quite clearly. The concept is captured perfectly in the title.

Oysters - This introspective song offers simple lyrics that provoke thought and it covers the idea of finding one's true self again. It is not the most catchy of songs but lyrically, it is at par with her best.

Promise - This mom-daughter duet did not strike me as anything special but then again, I am not too fond of duets.

16 shades of blue - This sounds like a song woven with very personal threads as some of the lines clearly show. This is partly a story of Tori's own questions and insecurities.

Wild Way - It is difficult to say how good or bad this song is depending on your taste but it reflects Tori's strength as a performer. Perhaps only she could make the line, "I hate you" mean the absolute opposite with such precision.

Wedding day - I really enjoyed this song because to me, it encapsulates Tori's evolution as a singer.
