"Under The Pink," which falls chronologically between "Little Earthquakes" and "Boys For Pele," is in many ways a representation of the best of both worlds; a "middle ground"...literally and figuratively...for Amos's art. Songs like "Pretty Good Year" and "Past The Mission" can be interpreted almost as continuation pieces to "Earthquakes;" ditto for the lovely "Cloud On My Tongue" and "Baker Baker" in a "Pele" context. There is wonderful unprecedented work here ("Cornflake Girl" and "Space Dog" ). Too, Amos's underappreciated gift for satire is alive and kicking, most notably in "Icicle" (an arch, poetic, and often uproariously funny song about masturbation and religious hypocrisy); and "Waitress,' which has the legendary lyrics: "I believe in peace/ I believe in peace, (...)). Just overall a great album; if it does have any flaws...which, for all we know, it might not....they hardly matter.
