You don't have the Beekeeper? Get it! It's got a couple of snoozers but still mostly really good.

2 of my best friends are obsessed with Tori Amos, but I've never been into her. I've been lurking this thread lately, and I'm starting to become very interested in her work. Where should I start? Any suggestions?

Well, let's see, my favorite is her 2nd album Under The Pink. It's got the hits "God" and "Cornflake Girl" and a whole bunch of other great, great stuff. "Pretty Good Year"

Her first album Little Earthquakes is probably the best for a beginner, since it is probably her most accessible album, followed closely by her 4th LP From The Choirgirl Hotel.

I think if you start with Little Earthquakes or Choirgirl Hotel you'll be good. Then get Under the Pink, followed by To Venus and Back and finally the super dense, challenging but rewarding Boys for Pele (NOT for beginners!).

Scarlet's Walk is good, but not really indicative of all that Tori is capable of, and I've never gotten through The Beekeeper without falling asleep, so I'd skip that one.

So, to summarize:

1. Little Earthquakes or From The Choirgirl Hotel
2. Under The Pink
3. To Venus and Back
4. Boys For Pele
5. Scarlet's Walk

That's my $ .02

First...



Then...






By the way, who else thinks that the picture of her, bible in hand with blood dripping down her leg would have made a MUCH better cover?!

Exactly! After those two, I'd pick up this one.

Thank you Fitz and Zootles I've always heard "Little Earthquakes" is the best place to start. I actually saw that just last week, very cheap if I recall *makes mental note* I can't wait to check her out!

I prefer the album's current cover. Pip (black haired Tori) is

My two cents worth on where to start...

I'd start in order with Tori. Little Earthquakes > Under the Pink > Boys for Pele. It worked for me and all my friends.

I don't agree at all that Boys for Pele should wait until after To Venus & Back. It's a masterpiece and follows the first two records perfectly and in fact, Choirgirl makes sense only after Pele, imo, because it marked a complete change in direction, much like Joshua Tree to Achtung Baby, and Ok Computer to Kid A. Having Pele follow To Venus & Back just doesn't make any sense to me.

Not that it matters all that much in the long run, lol. As long as you start with Little Earthquakes. We all agree on that!

However, wherever you start, U2isthebest, I hope you enjoy the trip!

Zootles > we have the same tracklist. So now I'm even more confused about the bonus tracks! I guess I'll let it go and wait until they appear for purchase on iTunes (if/when).

I do. I love that photograph. It says so much in such a simple way.

So yay! I picked up the deluxe edition just now. I doubt I'll ever watch the DVD, but I figured as a serious fan, I should own it. Can't wait to listen to it.

I also got a free Tori poster of all the dolls with my purchase.

Oh yeah. And I would go in order with Tori too. It worked for me. Then again, some of us longtime fans didn't have a choice.

I know! I kept meaning to buy it when it came out, but never got around to it.

I love Sleeps with Butterflies, though - one of my first ever iTunes purchases.

I haven't picked up the new one yet, which is a little surprising for me since I'm a gotta-have-it-the-day-it's-released sort of gal. any suggestions on where to get it? I saw at Target, it comes with a free mini poster. any one know if any other stores have their own "exclusive"?

glad that it seems to have gotten good reviews from fans.

Best Buy had the normal version for $13.99 - kind of a rip-off, and what really seemed strange to me was that it wasn't even in the new releases section. I had to go to the regular racks and look for her section.

My local shop had it "on sale" for $15.99, which was a bit of a bummer, but oh well. I guess not all their new releases can be 10 or 11 bucks.

The clerk offered me a free poster with it, but I turned it down.
