A Walk with Tori

Yeah i wanted a thread to talk about Tori Amos and her latest CD "Scarlet's Walk" cos i know we're a whole bunch of people who bought it and i'd like to share some opinions without going to a Tori website lol.

Soo, i have now listened to the whole album 3 or 4 times and i really like all the songs except maybe a couple of them that have no effect on me for the moment.

My fave songs have to be Taxi Ride, A Sorta Fairytale, Scarlet's Walk, Virginia, Crazy, and well okay it'd be easier to say those i like less! (the NY one, carbon and one i forgot the name as i don't like it lol).

Anyways i don't really know what are the official reviews of the album (didn't really bother to read the press). People might find the CD quite boring compared to the previous ones but i personally love it, it's a real journey from song 1 to song 18 and at first i thought the songs were alike but that's not the case after several listenings.

Well for the first time since i know Tori, i can listen to her whole album without problems so i guess i like her even more than before! And my next wish is to see her in concert, i hope maybe next year!

Also, i had to say Tori looks so beautiful these days, so judge by yourself!



Your thoughts now.

lol, I read on line that Tori has a new album, so I went and got it. only, it turns out that I bought her new (maybe it's not so new ) cover album instead, by mistake. it cost a fortune, much more than a regular album, and I don't like it too much. Tori has such a uniqe style, it works on the songs she writes, but when she takes songs other people have written... it can be amazing ("tell me why I don't like mondays", "real man") or awfull (that bonnie and clyde song...), and mostly it's just not too good. it doesn't sound like her. I'm not sorry I got it, though. I want to have every Tori album out there . I'll probably buy the new one this week.

Well the album was supposed to come out here October 25th and from that day on i visited every record shop i knew cause i just wanted to get my hands on it! And when i finally did...wow this really is a great album.

I like all the songs but my fave ones are A Sorta Fairytale, Carbon, the lovely Wampum Prayer , Pancake, Taxi Ride (wonderful lyrics ), Another Girl's Paradise and Scarlet's Walk.

Lucky me will be seeing her in concert in January and i cant wait. Ive seen her once before which was soooo amazing and with all these fantastic new songs i cant imagine how good its going to be!

Every time she releases a new album i think "this is my favourite one!" (maybe apart from Strange Little Girls..) and this time its no different.

And Davy i agree with you, she just gets more and more beautiful (nice pic btw, i wonder where you got it from )

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

but it's not even a real song, Nina . but isn't "real man" beautiful? and "mondays"? they were worth buying the whole album.

Real Men and Rattlesnakes are my faves on that album

I agree with you I-girl, i'm not a fan of the covers album, though i like Tori's covers. But i only like Strange Little Girls on that one. It's just cos it's not Tori, i like her music and her lyrics.

Yeah Maeike, i know you're going to see her so i want a full report, okay? I hope she will go to the UK, i should check and try to go there

I haven't seen the video of a Sorta Fairytale yet! @French TV!

yes, Maeike . and "mondays". I was just feeling silly, when I meant to buy "scarlet's walk" and got this one instead. and I've also bought the new Counting crows album, so I'll have to wait till next week to buy "scarlet". there's only so much money I can spend on music every week. I have to eat, you know .

you're right, I should. I'm a bad Tori fan. *shamed*

lol, on top of everything, my stereo (sp) broke down. I'll have to get a new one, I don't think it's any use fixing this one. it'll cost the same. the universe does not want me to listen to Tori.

Bloody Spain!

Can you believe the album only comes out here tomorrow?! I dont know why it takes two more weeks for the album to cross the border, but they know bugger all about good music here anyway...

I'd downloaded most of the tracks by the first day of release anyway, and I love it. Dahveed mentioned most of the good songs, although I really like Carbon too. Other songs that oi wasnt keen on at first are really growing on me.

Got tickets for the gig in Munich in January!

hi Dahveed :-)

I've been listening to the album a bit more lately and some songs are getting through to me more so then when I first listened to it. I love:

Amber Waves, Sorta Fairytale, Wednesday, strangen carbon, I can't see NY, taxi Ride, another girl's paradise, Scarlet's Walk, Virginia and Gold Dust

I actually wouldn't mind if she limited the cd to those songs. Also, is anyone connecting less to the songs because this time it is so obvious they're about fictional characters? I liked it more when her lyrics where ambigious and could be (and probably partly were) autobiographical!

The album has had very average reviews.

After a slow start I really love the album now. Favourite tracks so far are Wednesday, Another Girl's Paradise, Taxi Ride, Crazy, Pancake, A Sorta Fairytale, Carbon and Gold Dust. I think the album could lose a couple of tracks and instead have a full singles campaign with the left off tracks as great b sides.
