The Beekeeper is the eighth studio album by singer-songwriter Tori Amos. It deals with the topics of death, adultery and romantic conflict, and makes brief reference to ancient Gnostic mysticism from the Apocryphon of John. Sonically, it incorporates Celtic choirs, African drums, and Amos's whirring B-3 Hammond organ, giving it a more groove-based sound, thus making it perhaps her most melodic album to date. The limited edition package with a bonus DVD - footage includes a candid conversation with Tori Amos talking about the inspiration and theme for The Beekeeper and the bonus track "Garlands". The limited edition package groups the 19 songs into 6 different gardens- Roses and Thorns, Herbs and Elixers, The Desert Garden, The Greenhouse, The Orchard and The Rock Garden. To complement this garden theme the package includes a "Beekeeper" mix of flower and plant seeds.
The Original Bootlegs is a series of six Tori Amos live albums, recorded during the Original Sinsuality and Summer of Sin tours, both of which were in support of her 2005 album, The Beekeeper. Double-disc sets were released for each complete show, which were initially released in pairs and sold individually or as a pair. On December 6, 2005 a cardboard-housed compilation of all six concerts was released, titled The Original Bootlegs.
Celebrating the music of Tori Amos, the string quartet tribute Precious Things was an elegant and haunting reflection of an incendiary artist. Pieces follows that original release with more incredible interpretations of Tori's best-loved classics. Spurred by incredible feedback from her dedicated fans, talented musicians recorded another set of sparse, lyrical arrangements. Pieces is a meticulously-crafted album and classically-charged suite of music that every Tori Amos fan will want in their collection.
After the high conceptualism that lorded over 2005's The Beekeeper and 2007's American Doll Posse, singer and songwriter Tori Amos has decided to return to the relatively simple songs-as-songs approach on Abnormally Attracted to Sin. Those recordings, fine though they may have been, stretched the artist's reputation and the patience of her fans to the breaking point; based on her record sales, she whittled them down to simply the Tori cult (not a derogatory term, since many of her fans are proud to refer to themselves that way)…
Abnormally Attracted to Sin is the tenth studio album by singer-songwriter Tori Amos. It debuted on Billboard 200's "top ten" list, at #9, making it the artist's seventh album to do so. It is also the artist's first release under her deal with Universal Republic Records, following the end of her contract with Epic Records, and can be cited as the first non-conceptualized and self-proclaimed "personal album" by the singer-songwriter in over 10 years.(wikipedia)
Under the Pink is the second solo album by singer-songwriter Tori Amos. It had sold around 220,000 copies in the UK by the end of 1994, finishing that year as the UK's 61st best-selling album. This album was included in Blender magazine's list of 500 CDs You Must Own. It was voted among the greatest albums of the 1990s by Rolling Stone magazine some years later.
Highly ambitious, challenging, idiosyncratic, and confounding, Boys for Pele expands on the more experimental and progressive tendencies of Under the Pink. Amos frequently discards traditional song structures and employs wide-ranging, eclectic instrumentation in her music, while her lyrics seem to grow even more obscure, giving the album a very impressionistic feel…
Little Earthquakesis the debut solo album of singer/songwriter Tori Amos, featuring the singles "Silent All These Years", "China", "Winter" and "Crucify".
