Comments for the album Boys For Pele by Tori Amos:
Great thoughts in the music, great music, but can’t list it as something that grasps me completely.
My fav Amos album.
Not a great album, it's a little long and a little dense. Not the album I wanted Tori to make after Under the Pink.
Music and lyrics go great together. It must have been a fine day when they found that out! Over time the idea stuck and lyric writing became a way to vent frustration, anger, sadness, joy, etc. Many other artists are do it to get their "message" across. I'm not sure where this album lies. Very very wordy though. Attempting to stick it's head out from the crowd but I forgotten what it has told me. Lots of soft piano and margarine vocals. Few surprises along the way. 'Professional Widow' is club thumper which you wouldn't expect on a Tori album. Anticipates later works on 'From the Choirgirl Hotel' such as 'Sparks'. Both were arguably the two biggest singles from each but boy does the song mislead the uninformed buyer here. This is lazy Saturday night Tori. 'Beauty Queen/Horses', 'Father Lucifer' and 'Putting The Damage On' are all little ditties on the piano and never really go any where. That first song, I didn't know she was singing until 3 minutes in! The sweeping choruses and biting arrangements of 'Little Earthquakes' are gone and left with boring. 'Caught A Lite Sneeze' and 'Muhammad My Friend' do make nice additions in the neighborhood. Overall, vanilla plain album. Good to go.
The album tried very hard to be more alternative than her previous works, and it succeeded in doing so. My problem with it is that it lost its melodic touch while managing to be so special. Bottom line, however, is still worth listening to, literally and definitely.
A lot of critics consider this album to be too "kooky", I find that Tori has another masterpiece here. The first four songs here is up there with The Wall's in terms of great double album first sides.
