It doesn't matter that the reviews for Tori Amos' 14th studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines
, released this summer, haven't been especially thrilling. The 50-year-old chanteuse has always done things her own way, and more often than not, the Tori Amos way is weird and alienating.
, Amos returns to the 1990s piano-driven format that made her famous (with albums such as Little Earthquakes
and Under the Pink
), and her voice has lost none of its idiosyncratic charisma. Early concert reviews from Amos' 80-date spring and summer run indicate that she's pulling out some classic, fan-favorite tracks, too, so don't be afraid Saturday to let out the angsty '90s girl in you.
