Soulful R&B vocals, ripping solos, funky low-end, and real hip-hop are phrases that describe Vicious Groove's freshman effort, Vicious Nation.
Boys for Pele, the title of Tori Amos's epic third album, is as awkward and confusing as the music inside. Though it sounds like a recruitment slogan for Little League soccer, the name actually refers to the lost temples of feminine divinity. Pele, you see, is the Hawaiian volcano goddess; the boys, well, they're the sacrifices that quell the rumbling lady's rage. Attempting to regain fires stolen long ago, Pele rewrites the crucifixion to star a girl Jesus and in doing so conjures a forgotten matriarchal mythology. While Amos's characters--Jupiter, Muhammad, Lucifer--are male by name, the aural landscape into which they're thrown is as symbolically and expressionistically female as Georgia O'Keeffe's skull-and-roses paintings. Pele is a complex and formless--and often impenetrable--work of gothic-pop chamber music, both beautiful and ghostly in its nearly complete reliance on Amos's rolling Bosendorfer grand piano, chilling harpsichord (which she bangs like a courtly punk rocker), and acrobatic voice (as earthy as Joni Mitchell's and as otherworldly as Bjork's). Unfortunately, she takes us only halfway: her songs engage and challenge us to understand, but the imagery offers few clues to help us crack their frustrating opacity. Pele ends up as much a pretentious and self-indulgent trip as it is a synthesis of talent, imagination, and skewed vision. Still, there's reason to celebrate that an album as formalistically and thematically alien to pop audiences as Pele would win such quick success upon its original release. --Roni Sarig
That's ever tori's best of her 14 records !
I'm buying for a second time cause the first one is to old and unplayable by so many listen, more than 1000 time 4 sure !
'Boys For Pele' is the perfect album to put on after a break up, it's got a lot of personal lyrics as Tori fortells some of her personal relationship quests in some of the songs... Read morePublished on July 15 2004 by Laura

Boys for Pele is perhaps my favorite Tori Amos album. I enjoyed it even more than Little Earthquakes, another excellent effort. Read morePublished on April 26 2004 by I ain't no porn writer

This is an extraordinary album, even if sometimes you feel like you'll never understand some parts, isn't "odd" Tori's second name? Read morePublished on March 5 2004 by The last fairy
This really a great album. Tori was really in her element when she wrote this. A few of the songs are a little bit out there, but isn't Tori always like that? Read morePublished on Feb. 20 2004 by Rygel
