Does anybody here like Tori Amos?

Sure, she's a pretentious bitch, and sure, she's pretty much full of shit, but she's so amazing! Those lyrics...the sexiness...the piano playing...*orgasm*

Anyone else feel this way? I think that Under The Pink is her best CD but most Tori fans disagree.

Dude, you are on a gay board.

I have to say that most of the time I do think "she's a pretentious bitch, and sure, she's pretty much full of shit". I have liked some stuff though.

Horrible taste in music like what? I'm a Tori Amos fan. Her latest album Beekeeper wasn't too bad. I'm more of a fan of her earlier work, the stuff from the 90s.

I have her book. I stopped after the first chapter though. I could it much forcast it as the modern day Pocahontas.

I don't think I would read a book by her. She's a little too...well, I said it in my first post.

Horrible taste as in the mindless pop with minimal, redundant lyrics.

I'm not a big fan of Beekeeper, but all the die-hard Tori fans I know say that the tracks from that album sound a lot better live than on the CD.

Honestly, I don't know enough of her stuff, but from what I do know, she can come off a bit pretentious. However, I absolutely love her song "Winter." Maybe I should listen to more of her earlier work.

I LOVE Winter. It has some powerful lyrics. The accompiment is just amazing and the vocals are perfect.

Well, I'm one of those who disagree about Under The Pink - I think Boys for Pele is probably her best work although Under The Pink comes pretty darn close. 'Blood Roses' and 'The Doughnut Song' from that album are pretty much some of her best songs in my opinion....

Listening to Tori really got me hooked onto piano songs - you listen to some of her earlier works and you realize that it had a lot of solo intros and interludes with the piano which you'll never find in The Beekeeper.

Her book's not all pretentious. She has some pretty revealing stuff on her miscarriages and on the music industry - I pretty much skip a lot of the spiritual stuff in the book....

You know what? I'm obsessed with 'Yes, Anastasia' as of now - I love the fact that it could exist separately as 2 songs but somehow, the 2 parts of the songs really work well together....

The Reigning Queens: Serena Williams, Justine Henin, Venus Williams

Salutes: Elena Dementieva, Tatiana Golovin, Shahar Peer, Jelena Jankovic, Ana Ivanovic

I adore Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, PJ Harvey, Nellie Mckay, Rufus Wainwright, Cat Power, Norah Jones, Rachael Yamagata and Christina Aguilera!

I ADORE Tori Amos. Her stuff is amazing, and I don't think she is either 'pretentious' or 'full of shit', just very very talented

My favourite song of hers is 'Tear in Your Hand'
