Nah... I realize that the Beekeeper has it's flaws. My shorter alternate version kicks ass though! Your recommendations sound perfect! Under The Pink or Scarlet's Walk FTW!

I missed that revelation!

Yeah, I think Under the Pink or Scarlet's Walk is the way to go. As much as I love Pele, most seem to think it's an acquired taste. UTP and SW (along with LE), though quite different from each other, are in many ways classic Tori.

The versions of Cruel and Space Dog are amazing.

It is one of my favorite live albums.

From The Choir Girl Hotel is her second best album after Little Earthquakes.

TVAB is a funny one in Tori's catalogue. I think it's got some awesome tracks and there are no real weak songs, but it's the only album of hers that, to my ears, lacks unity and simply doesn't gel together as an album.

That said, I could listen to Suede over and over again all day, It's one of Tori's most hypnotic, mesmerising songs.

I tend to agree. I don't listen to it much though I loved it when it came out. I love the songs live.

And it has, hands down, the best artwork of any of her records, imo.

Wow, seriously? I only have the mp3 version of this album. And I'm a nut for good artwork too!

I don't have a whole lot to add, except that I could listen to "Datura" for days. And to me, the album does form a coherent whole. The only song I can't find space for is "Juarez."

Well, I think so. It's not extraordinary or anything--kind of simple actually--but nice compared to her others, which I really dislike for the most part. She just looks good. Here's a couple. The others I found are too big.

HeartlandGirl?!



I didn't like Juarez until I heard it live. It totally rocked.

Under The Pink is the third best Tori Amos album. It is great. It has Space Dog, my second favorite Tori Amos song. I just don't think it can compare to the awesomeness of Hotel and the timelessness of Earthquakes.

Not that I can really judge, (I only got into Tori about 2 months ago)...

But I've listened to a few albums and here's how I'd rate them:

1. Little Earthquakes
2. To Venus And Back (Precious Things Live On Disc 2 )
3. Under The Pink
4. American Doll Posse

Not that I completely dislike ADP, I just find it a bit patchy compared to the others. I think I need to go back and listen to it again!

I just brought the Live From Sunny Florida DVD too.

Wow, bono_man2002, it's only been 2 months since you started listening to her??? You've heard a lot of albums then in that short period! Good ranking btw!

Well I love Datura!

Maybe I just didn't pay attention to the lyrics? Is it mentioned in the lyrics?
