Tales of a Librarian: A Tori Amos
Collection (Bonus DVD) by Tori Amos
Good Starting Point For A New Tori Amos Listener
The first compilation of Tori Amos hits from her multi-platinum catalog...
Remixed. Re-Mastered. Revealed. She has sold fifteen million records
worldwide, done numerous sold-out world tours, and has amassed one of
the most loyal followings in contemporary music. Now Tori Amos gives her
fans more of the soul-searching lyrics and complex melodies that her
devotees have come to live and breathe for. Sixteen of her most popular
songs...plus two re-recorded rarities and two brand-new tracks heard here
for the very first time. Twenty songs in all -- plus a bonus DVD featuring
three newly filmed live songs, and two additional Remixed 5.1 Audio
Tracks -- forging the first-ever definitive Tori Amos Collection.
I saw a couple of Tori's CD's at a Wal-Mart, enough to spark up curiosity.
My first exposure to her music was her live Video of a benefit concert.
This actually bored me, but I decided to give her a second chance and
listen to this project. I'm glad I did.
For those who have not seen my profile or my other reviews, I am coming
from the perspective of a songwriter and of an ordained minister
(Fundamentalist). I was not able to follow her lyrics and can tell she has
religious and philosophical themes, but am not sure if they are compatible,
different, or antagonistic to mine. "Crucify" does seem to speak about
dealing with shame, for example; I'm one that believes shame is useful if
based on a specific action with a specific resolution, and harmful if not
accompanied with reason or resolution. I'm not sure if she is dealing with
harmful shame, or condemning shame across the board.
Tori Amos is very creative, and the packaging of this project is exhibit A.
She has a listing of the Dewey Decimal System, and then catalogs her
songs according to the subject.
Overall, I enjoy her sound. I don't know how to label her music, and I
consider that a good thing. Another reviewer said that a greatest hits
compilation is not always the best intro for a new listener, but said that this
is an exception, and I agree 100%.
