“Trouble’s Lament” opens with acoustic guitar front-and-center, and it isn’t until nearly 30 seconds that any piano is heard. While this may seem to eschew the traditional Tori Amos set up, with piano and vocals as the main attraction, the song soon opens up into a lilting, rollicking Americana affair that would fit perfectly with 2002’s Scarlet’s Walk.
Being tasked with exploring Tori Amos’ discography is like a friend pressuring you to binge watch a show with over five seasons. So if you’ve borrowed your way through all 14 of her albums, here’s a list of 14 songs you may have skipped over, missed completely, or that deserve a closer listen.
On May 13th, Tori Amos is set to release her brand new studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines on Mercury Classics/Universal Music Classics in the US. Unrepentant Geraldines is pop/rock in both content and feel and is a change in pace from Amos’ most recent releases.
