    Come Back to New Mexico Tori

    This is Tori's best. I have been a huge fan since 1992 when Little Earthquakes was released. Scarlet's Walk reflects a deeper level of sophistication and musical expression. Tori's songwriting has matured, and thank goodness she has softened her message about God. I was always hesitant to share my enthusiasm for Tori, but this CD is more acceptable to a broader audience. Peabody may have expelled her, but her piano skills have greatly surpassed what they could have ever hoped to teach her. I can't wait to see what she has coming up next.

    Tori Is Terrific

    Scarlett's Walk is quite simply her most complete work to date and with it, her songwriting has reached a new level. Go on, take Tori's hand and let her lead you on a truly remarkable journey of wonderous songs and beautiful melodies!

    Tori is winding down

    It seems like Tori is priming us for an exit (which saddens me. Her music speaks out to people very well) The front and back covers themselves hint at a goodbye, and cramming so many songs into one CD is a bit suspicious. I would hate to see Tori back away from the audience. Of course, she'd continue to play and write, but this time for herself and her loved ones!

    Tori is Back!

    For all the fans that were a little bewildered with TO VENUS AND BACK as well as STRANGE LITTLE GIRLS, SCARLET'S WALK once again features the Tori we have grown to love. The aforementioned CDs had their moments, but on SCARLET'S WALK, every song is a gem. I don't have to skip over any "lesser" tracks because there are none. Although everything on this album is amazing, the tracks that I especially love are "A Sorta Fairytale", "Strange", "Carbon", "Crazy", "Your Cloud", "I Can't See New York", "Taxi Ride", and "Gold Dust". If you have longed for the days of the girl and her piano, you must get this CD. You will not be disappointed!

    Sad To See So Few Reviews For Such a Fantastic Album

    After 1996's "Boys For Pele", Amos seemed to take her devoted audience for a spin. Rising to underground fame the same time the grunge movement appeared, she found a home with that same audience, serving as sort of the songstress of the time. CD collections carried Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Marilyn Manson, and Tori Amos. She was the ballad singer, the heart of it. But after BFP, she seemed to split her audience for a time. With the release of "From A Choirgirl Hotel", she released a fantastic, but unusual for Tori, almost pop-friendly collection of songs that tried the rebellious nature of some of her previous listeners. Then, a year later, she took her devotees flying in the other direction with "To Venus and Back" and a couple years later with "Strange Little Girls", evoking almost Bjork-ish obscurity and artistry and taking the fans into the opposite direction. While I'm a huge fan of every release of hers with the exception of "Strange Little Girls", I hated to admit that Tori was falling out of the light. And then this. Thank God, Pele, or whoever for this fantastic, soulful, and inspired "Scarlet's Walk", the most personal album since "Boys for Pele", and the best since "Under the Pink", eight years ago. Her piano's back and it sounds better than ever.

    Tori's American Tale

    Scarlet's Walk is Tori's first album for her new label, Epic, and it proves to be just as brilliant as her previous works. It's best described as a beautiful meeting of Under The Pink (1994) and Boys For Pele (1996), two equally amazing albums. Tori fans will appreciate the showcase of piano and (as always) quirky lyrics, and yet it seems more accessible (for new listeners) than her more recent work. A concept album, Tori/Scarlet weaves a ficticious musical tour across America, examining her landscape and people. I should also point out that this album is available in a limited edition that includes a "map" of Scarlet's Walk, a bonus dvd, 12 "polaroid snapshots", a sheet of stickers, and a charm. I really suggest getting the limited edition if you can, they're really cool and they're only avaiable for a limited time!
