Product Description

Amazon.ca

It was an earlier five-song collection that helped introduce Tori Amos to the masses with a quiet cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." There's nothing quite so inspired on Hey Jupiter, which gathers together a remixed version of the title track and four live performances. The remix adds a few high-tech touches at the edges of the song, without either improving or detracting from the original. But fans may be happy with Amos's between-song chatter and an achingly fragile reading of "Somewhere over the Rainbow." --Steve Appleford

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem from the goddess Nov. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought "Hey Jupiter EP" a few years ago when I was on my Tori binge. I think it was just shortly before I got to see her live for the first time and right around when I started getting heavily into her music. One day at a local record shop, I bought a slew of singles and EPs by Tori Amos, "Hey Jupiter EP" was one of those purchases. I haven't listened to the EP in a long time so I decided to throw it in. I always loved the song "Hey Jupiter" from a very difficult album to listen to "Boys For Pele". After listening to the Dakota version of "Hey Jupiter", I am quickly reminded which version I love more and that is the Dakota version. I still love the "Boys For Pele" version but I do believe that the Dakota version is vastly superior. The primary reason I bought this EP was to hear Tori's interpretation of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". It is a breathtaking cover. I was simply blown away the fragile, delicate vocals and melodies. Tori Amos is one of the few artists who I love when she covers a particular song. She makes the song her own. I also enjoyed the live tracks of "Sugar", "Honey", and "Professional Widow". I particular enjoyed Tori's brief explaination of "Sugar". I found that rather humorous. Her little anctedotes during her concert performances are one of the reasons why I love seeing Tori perform live. "Hey Jupiter EP" is a brief reminder of my concert experiences of seeing Tori Amos perform live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Jupiter! July 16 2004
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
Tori's single from 'Boys For Pele' is simply and utterly beautiful. This CD single contains 2 of the tracks from BFP in a little different style. 'Sugar' is a beautiful song while 'Honey' is a harsh song about a failing relationship. The last track, the cover of 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' is stunning. A must for ANY Tori fan, you will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exceptional EP!!! June 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard the album version of "Hey Jupiter" on 1996's BOYS FOR PELE, I thought it was the most beautiful song singer-songwriter Tori Amos had created. When I learned of a remix of the song, I was rather weary, since the LP version seemed so flawless; but upon listening to the "Dakota Version" included in this EP, I was blown away by Amos's ability to take a perfect song and make it perfect in a completely new light, in an alternate universe, if you will. The added strings and bass in the remix take away the quiet stillness of the original version, while maintaining some sort of softness and darkness, and utter desperation. More often than not, when I want to hear this song, it's the remix that I tend to listen to as it entails much more complex emotions.
The rest of the tracks included in the EP are live renditions of "Sugar" (a b-side from 1992's LITTLE EARTHQUAKES), "Honey" (a b-side from 1994's UNDER THE PINK), "Professional Widow" (an album track from BOYS FOR PELE), and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" (a cover of Judy Garland's classic tune from the film THE WIZARD OF OZ). The live tracks are great in and of themselves, but we're also treated to Amos's humorous and insightful anecdotes between songs, which is one of the best parts of her live shows. Her fragile, stunning rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" displays Amos's amazing talent as a musician.
If you are looking to add some EP's and CD singles to your Tori collection, be sure to add this one. In fact, you may want to start with this one to give you a taste of what you're in for. Dim the lights, open your mind, and take it all in...

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Peculiar Nov. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
Even though I cannot stress how different Tori Amos' albums are from each other, this particular EP captured her musical attributes--lyrical prose, soothing piano, and imagination--excellently. If you want to try her out in baby steps, this EP or the Winter EP would be it!

Hey Jupiter ROCKS! "Hey Jupiter (Dakota Version)" changed the flavor of the song, without killing the meaning of the lyrics. Same thing with "Professional Widow." "Sugar" was even beter when listened to live and "Honey" is a beautiful buried treasure. Tori is a master at matching the lyrics to the music so you can feel the song. Beautiful

It also has four LIVE performances. Sugar, Honey, Professional Widow, and a very cool version as only Tori can do of Somwhere Over the Rainbow!!
A great EP! A must have for any Tori Amos Fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the remix Nov. 13 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The remix of Hey Jupiter that is featured on this EP is definently worth the price of the CD in and of itself. I think it's an amazing and moving version of the song, and I prefer it over the album version. As for the other tracks, I don't care for the Professional Widow live track, but it's an interesting and sort of creepy experience. "Sugar" is a good Tori track, also worth owning - and she talks in the beginning, which I always like. :) I think any Tori fan should definently own this CD, if only for the mix of "Hey Jupiter".

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Beautiful Sept. 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
HEY JUPITER has always been one of my favorite Tori Amos songs, its just so poetic and full of meaning for me. With any Tori song you have different interpretations and they mean different things to different people, but I always felt this song in particular spoke volumes to me. It's so tragic and beautiful at the same time. The Dakota Version of this song which appears on this EP even betters the original version, bringing even more layers to this amazing song. But the avid Tori fan will want this EP for the live tracks. We have "Sugar" and "Honey" which are both bsides from her UNDER THE PINK project, a live version of "Professsional Widow" which has a more gothic feel to it than the original, and a unique cover version of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" done live. Overall truly a great EP to have for the fans or anyone interested.
