Understanding is key Sept. 4 2005
By 9v - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'll probably get railed for this, but the pivotal point on this EP is the cover of the traditional "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". What this entire Choirgirl-era orbited around was the miscarriage of Tori's child; all other problems she was having then were secondary, but amplified threefold because of this central issue. It's in the music; Cold, mechanical, sterile, yet wrought with outbursts of pain. It's in the imagery: a black null void, frozen in stasis. Numb. Very Decemberesque, which is what I think of when I listen to this particular era of Tori Amos. Winter. Dark, gray, sunless winter. Of course, this brings us to Christmas, which is focal on this particular single.

Purple People (Christmas In Space) is somber and reflective, whereas there is really something striking about the movement of the ambient sounds in the background to Have Yourself.., most notably in the last ten or so seconds. The steady mechanical hum and slow bubbling give me mental images of being underwater, having stray beams of light cross you and the stray bubble pass by you. This may come off as a little morose, but it sounds like being drowned. Stasis, again. Womb-like, maybe? I can't stop raving about this, particularly because I don't think there's another that could take a song like that and turn it into what she turned it into.

Trapsing in afterwards, Bachelorette feels like an afterthought, but keeps with the darker sound as to not seem too out of place. Not a bad song, but placement wasn't well thought out. It sounds like an unwanted happy ending.

All and all, top-notch offering. Shame about the newer material..

Lovely Sept. 22 1999

"Purple People" and "Bachlorette" should be known for their great lyrics and music, and like Tori does with many of her singles, they're added on because there's so much talent flowing through her fingers that she can't possibley include all of her performance. Recall "Pele"? Can you imagine how much better it might be if just put those simply okay 2 minute songs all on the one single (like "Lite Sneeze" did) and then it might be better. "Spark" is just like any other Tori single, and she's a marketing genius- plus she's got talent! take that britney spears!

p.s. um, why'd you give "spark" 1 star if you liked it so much, green bay guy?

Sweetly Tasteful June 20 2001

The singles on this CD are wonderful. Another addition to the collecters stash of her music, if haven't already included. Purple People is the second song that has a very mellow and sultry sound. One of which should listened to on a hot summer day, in a hammock, swaying in the breeze, to get the complete effect. The third is Bachlorette, an upbeat tune that even captures Tori's laugh at the end. You know she had fun singing this particular song. This single is one of my fav's. Topped off with Spark, it has Tori's powerful voice which flows from the sadness of Spark, to the sleepiness of Purple People, finished with the spunky with a dash of salsa in Bachlorette. The many sides of Tori in three songs... I like!!!!

A Definite Must for Tori Fans March 29 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I am so pleased with this single. "Spark" is one of my all-time favorite songs (it's the one that got me interested in Tori in the first place.) For those of you who already own the Choirgirl CD, BUY THIS SINGLE! This is worth getting because two fantastic songs, "Purple People" and "Bachelorette" are not on her other CD's. True, the live version of "Purple People" is on Tori's latest CD, but this is the only studio version available. And the song "Bachelorette" is not found anywhere else and it is an awesome song--you'll love it the first time you hear it!

As Usual a Great New Single From Tori Sept. 3 1998
By - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you like "Spark" but don't want to buy the album ("From The Choirgirl Hotel") this is defintely for you!! In addition to "Spark" you will get two new, unreleased songs that just might presuade you to buy "Chiorgirl Hotel". "Purple People" is a slow, nice, jazzy little tune that is very catchy. In an instant, I assure you, you'll be hooked on the song. With it's slow pluse and quiet beat it's great as a relaxer. "Bachlorette" (one of my favorite songs ever), on the other hand, is a quick-moving, fast-paced song. It's flows so's a really good song to sing-a-long to!! You'll probably find yourself doing that if you can figure out the's tough, believe me!! Anyway, it's a great, inexpensive CD that is really worth it,
