After two somewhat disappointing offerings (Strange Little Girls and To Venus and Back), Tori Amos is back in proper form with a worthy successor to the brilliant From the Choirgirl Hotel. Scarlet's Walk, which details a journey across the United States, is vintage Amos with her uncommonly thought provoking lyrics and gorgeous melodies.
I was getting ready to bail on her, but this record is her redemption. Nearly every track sounds great, and some are among the best she's ever done. "Gold Dust" with it's full orchestration is worth the price of the album alone. "I Can't See New York" has a heartbreaking chorus , and "Carbon" evokes the chilly beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Another not to be missed track is the acapella "Wampum Prayer".
In many ways, Scarlet's Walk is her most accessible album to date. She reportedly was inspired a great deal by 9-11, and
one can really hear the loss and sadness in her voice on several tracks. Although her lyrics tend to be hard to understand, the liner notes include all the words. But I've always felt one of the best things about her music is that even if you don't always 'get' the lyrics you can feel the emotions behind them. This album does that exceptionally well.
If you love Tori, this is a definite buy (but you probably have it already if you are!). If you aren't, consider buying it, despite all the things you may have heard about her. You just might end up becoming a fan.

I have been a huge Tori fan for many years. However, when I listened to this album I was thoroughly disappointed by it. I feel that it is too radio friendly. I would recommend for those of you just getting into Tori to purchase "Little Earthquakes" as a starter album. If you like it, go from there.

Tori Amos's first "themed" CD.... in a legitimate, not pretentious, way. 97% of Amos's work is extraordinary, and she has practically built her career on the stepping stones of masterpieces...how many artists can say the same? Tori Amos is a genius and, as with genius, her work leaves behind that of most of her peers, many of whom are "merely" talented. "Scarlet's Walk" contains three of her greatest songs ever written.. .."Virginia" "Gold Dust" and the 9/11 ode "I Can't See New York." Not every number on the album has the same destiny. Some tracks, like "Wampum Prayer" "Don't Make Me Come To Vegas" and "Pancake" can be dull and/or droning; but then, Amos is channeling her music, and the entities expressing themselves through her have their own stories to tell. In interviews, in fact, she herself has often thrown up her hands at their quirky ways. In a sense Tori Amos takes no responsibility for her music...a trait indigenous to all true artists. When "it" talks (whatever it is), she listens; and although her muses wander off sometimes,they always bring her back wonderful things. "Scarlet's Walk" is goergous in a "goodbye to all that" context....a great and obscure act of patriotism in its way, a trip down America's memory lane, Amos's roots in the American South (which is evoked in mournful loveliness) and a post 9/11 world.

This is probably one of Tori's best CD's out there. It has soul, and her lyrics still puzzle us, but we try and interperate it any way we want. Scarlet's Walk is beautiful and WORTH the buy if you love the most original and precious melodies around. Her voice is wonderful, and is expressed to the fullest. Her woody and magical tones send you down memory lane, and all you want to do is kick back and relax with all the songs on a lazy afternoon, winter or summer.
Songs which I loved:
2. Sorta Fairytale - first Tori Amos song I'd ever heard. Still one of my personal favourites. A good song for the road.
5. Carbon - a delicious song and truly beautiful in every way. I wish she had more songs like this.
9. Sweet Sangria - magical and dark at the same time as being sweet.
10. Your Cloud - Beautiful is all I can say. Very relaxing to listen to.
12. I Can't See New York - A strong song where her voice reigns supreme.
14. Taxi Ride - Brings you down high school again, lets you think back and blush at all the silly things you've done with your friends.
17. Virginia - Lovely dark undertones to this song.
18. Gold Dust - Nostalgia plus.

Tori Amos won a legion of fans by confessing her vulnerabilities on her first two albums, and she made it easy to follow with lyrics written in full sentences. But she stayed true to her own path with Pele and Choirgirl Hotel, and some fans didn't like that so much. A pity for them, because they really missed out on her glorious transformation from a maiden plaintive and hungry for answers to a wise, fertile matriarch. Those of us who sat down to listen to Pele and Choirgirl with a glass of wine and went with her on her journeys through Strange Little Girls have now been rewarded with a truly soulful and loving work. Everything in due time. Amazing, genius, brilliant.

Tori has never made a bad album but this one is a masterpiece. I listened to her mature as a singer and songwriter from Little Earthquakes and every album after that. She has the voice of an angel and she's a virtuoso on the piano. Combine that with her intelligent and sensitive lyrics and some haunting melodies and you have a listening experience that is truly moving and emotionally fulfilling.
The instrumental accompaniment on each cut is excellent. Like the banjo prelude in Virginia, it really sets the mood and setting for the song. I never get tired of listening to this album, though I admit I don't always understand the meaning of the lyrics, and I don't always agree with her liberal sentiments. I'm quite the political opposite of her, but as long as she is singing, I will try to think like a liberal.
Tori has an intellectual quality that is far above that of most pop artists. Her treatment of American Indians is especially poignant and poetic, as in Strange: "Woke up to a world that I am not a part except when I can play its stranger." This is music of the highest quality by any standards.
