'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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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!Read more ›
