Tori's To Venus And Back is truly gorgeous!

Listening to this album this morning, I'm once again realizing how subtly beautiful these songs are! Lust, Glory of the 80s, Datura, Riot Proof, Spring Haze... amazing stuff, so atmospheric and many of these songs have a great slow groove going... perfect for road trips thru beautiful countryside. It's like songs on these album, if I can steal Edge's quote here, they just arrive. Not that American Doll Posse is bad and I'm not trying to rag on the newer album but it would be cool if she leaves the more obvious style of songs like Big Wheel, Teenage Hustling, Bouncing etc. and goes and creates another atmospheric masterpiece like Venus.

hey you
gender nectar
sifting through the grain of gold
tripping at your door
is that you.
alpha in her blood
and when the woman lies
you don’t believe her

rolling and unrolling
coiling emerging
running free
running through
the underworld
into your room



ETA: I had no idea those were the lyrics until I looked them up!

a highly underrated song! The Scarlet's Walk Tour version of the TVAB songs was THE best.
YouTube - Tori Amos-Houston-04-27-03 =5= Lust

My favorite from TVAB is Spring Haze. Always reminds me of JFK, Jr.

I don't own this.

I admit being a fan in spurts, I loved seeing her live last fall.

Apart from Venus, you're missing From The Choirgirl Hotel, Strange Little Girls and The Beekeeper. Choirgirl is awesome!

I only have "Little Earthquakes" and "American Doll Posse" so far. I really like them both. I definitely want to branch out and get more. Where should I go next?

Interesting--you have her very first and her most recent records. There's a lot in between covering different styles.

For the Little Earthquakes fan in you, go with Under the Pink next. In fact, as a general rule, I think going in order is a good way to go with Tori.

If you like the more mellow songs from ADP, I'd get Scarlet's Walk next, which I think is one of her masterpieces. I predict Zootles will say go with The Beekeeper next.

If you want to hear Tori dabbling in experimental/electronica, try From the Choirgirl Hotel.

Or if you just want Tori at her darkest weirdest best + harpsichord, go with my personal favorite, Boys for Pele.
