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.
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 was surprised, to say the least, after the first listen. This is the most consistent, cohesive album she's put out in quite a while. Like another person stated, this should have followed up Scarlett's Walk.
The songs are tight and she explores some themes we can all relate to: aging, love, marriage, etc. America, Troubles Lament, the title track and 16 Shades of Blue are classic Tori. It's definitely a more subdued album, but so was Under The Pink, and I'm pretty sure that's way up on the list for many fans.
One of those albums I actually like more with each listen. An easy four stars here.
The whole album flows well and if you are a Tori Amos fan buy this album. I dont think you will do anything but listen over and over again.
I also love that with the deluxe edition you get the extra DVD with an interview of her telling us the inspiration for each song. My husband is not really a fan; although he does really like the Scarlet's Walk CD. He watched the DVD with me, and he has a new appreciation for her now. After just two listens I found I was humming these songs as I went through my day. That's when I know she has struck a chord in me. That hasn't happened to me since Scarlet's Walk. Thank you, Tori!!
