I haven't heard the new album yet but hearing that Tori went back to the original sources for these songs has me intrigued.

After listening to the sample clips on amazon and reading copious amounts of very positive reviews there and at iTunes, I will probably be picking this up. Sounds like it's a beautiful album that is miles from your typical holiday record.

I bought it after someone in B&C said it could be enjoyed any time of year, that it wasn't terribly Christmasy. I think I played it once and put it away - because it's Christmas music, not something to be enjoyed any time of year (unless you happen to like Christmas music year round, of course). Maybe I'll drag it out and give it another spin this year to see if it does anything for me.

Well I did love Tori's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from years ago so I'll probably have to pick this up. Plus, I collect.

It's sad to keep seeing Zoots' name on this thread.

Very good show yesterday at the Regent Theatre. I thought it was fun to see Tori with the full band the last time she played Melbourne, but IMO she's at her most magical when it's just her alone onstage. I must admit, the setlist wasn't the favourite I've heard - I like about half of the songs on the new album and of those she only played Curtain Call and the rest were the dull fillerish ones. Still, Tori is such a compelling live performer that I was never bored. The highlights for me were Blood Roses, China, I Can't See New York (which had me sitting there bawling my eyes out like I've never done at any concert), Barons of Suburbia, and a lovely cover of Leonard Cohen's Suzanne. Roll on night two!

I've liked Tori's music for ages. But I have to admit, it seems that there's been something lost on the last few albums... It's a shame too. When she's on her game, she makes some intriguing music.

Blood Roses is one of my favorite Tori songs to hear live. And I Can't See New York is absolutely stunning live. I think I left my body during that sitting in the 5th row (which was incredibly close at this particular venue) during the Scarlet's Walk tour...

Her shows are generally so amazing that I end up loving the songs I don't normally like. Hope you get some good stuff tonight!

In a word: unity. Her albums used to be unified but on these last few she has insisted on putting far too many songs. Posse and Sin especially would be much better served being cut down to the best 12 or so songs. I think must people would agree on that.

Woo-hoo I'm so glad I got tickets for both Melbourne shows because the second night was ossum! My seat was closer to the stage, even Tori's outfit was better than the other night (mixing black and scarlet with red hair doesn't quite work). Apart from Blood Roses, Barons of Suburbia, I Can't See New York we also got Little Earthquakes, Leather, Pretty Good Year, Concertina, Hey Jupiter, Mr Zebra, The Beekeeper, Flying Dutchman. I'm a happy little vegemite

Uh, yeah, that would have made me pretty happy, too!

Tori shows are funny that way. I remember seeing her a couple of times on one tour and the first time it was like she went through her catalog and picked all my least favorite songs. The second show was exactly the opposite - it was like my dream setlist.

Is it sad that I consider myself a Tori Amos fan and I only know less than half of these songs?

Yeah, how'd that happen?

I don't know A Silent Night With You - I assume it's from the new holiday record.

Not many favorites of mine on this list but there are definitely a few must-knows.
