Under The Pink was Tori Amos' follow-up to the sensationally successful Little Earthquakes and demonstrates that she had by no means run out of faeries and demons to sport with. Amos herself describes it as her "impressionistic" album--her piano playing is perfectly attuned to the subtle, shifting colours of her lyrical moods on "Bells For Her", while "Past The Mission" indicates her growing use of distinctive arrangements to illustrate her songs. Highlights include "God", in which Amos demonstrates her often-missed humour, openly taunting the Almighty for his indifference to humanity, asking "Do you need a woman to look after you?" --David Stubbs

This record came out years ago, and my poor, battered copy has the scratches and dents to prove it. So why now would I want to spend my time writing a review? Because it's "greatest hits" time in Tori land, and I think that we all know what that means.
Of course, many will argue, with some vigor, that the appearance of a "greatest hits" record is not the death knell to a career, but rather a turning point, or a good bye to old material or even perhaps, just the whim of the record company that the artist had no inclination to fight...but I don't REALLY believe that and neither do you. We all know that Tori's work has seemed to hit a standstill, and I want to call attention to her greatest record before she sinks under the surface of her past genius.
Now, before you all start howling, let me say that tori's new work is admirable. It's lovely and touching and all that female singer/songwriter past her prime type of stuff, and even at a standstill Tori still beats that pants off most but...
On Under The Pink Tori was in the flower of her talent. Stupid phrase, but bear with me. This record, it's arrangements, it's lyricism, it's nod to influences while leaving those influences in the dust, well the record is timeless. When she howls, "I believe in peace, $itch!" or demands of christianity "Do you need a woman to look after you?" she is at the height of her feminism, her own brand of activism and yet she still remains deeply personal and completely honest. There isn't any hiding of messages between lushly arranged arrangements, there isn't any wish for privacy here, lyrically.

Two years following Tori Amos' first solo release, Little Earthquakes, Under The Pink was released. This album is absolutely gorgeous. It's deep lyrics and beautifully arranged music make it a perfect CD, like most of Tori's releases. The disc begins with "Pretty Good Year", one of my favroite tracks which really speaks to you at points in your life when you are low. Next comes the witty song "God". This song asks the question "God, do you need a woman to look after you?" I love this song it's very catchy. One of the slowest and most beautiful songs on the album is "Bells For Her". Though not as catchy or as easy to love as others it's a great song and one of my favrotes. "Past The Mssion" is one of my favorite Tori songs. It's very catchy and I love it. Another ballad of the album is "Baker Baker" it's very artistic and the arrangement is astounding."The Wrong Band" is an unsung hero of Under The Pink. Most people jus pass over it and don't see how beautiful it is, but I love it. Next comes the fan favroite "The Waitress" it has a really deep meaning and is such a great song. Probably Tori's most popular song, "Cornflake Girl" is on this album and is liked most easily. "Icicle" the masterful piece which has impressive amounts of beauty in it. The lyrics are easy to decipher(...). "Cloud On My Tongue" is another favroite of mine and is another masterpiece. Second to last is "Space Dog", which is on eo fmy favorite tracks and has the memorable line,"Racing turtles, the grapefruit is winning." The last and longest(nearly 10 minutes) is "Yes, Anastasia." This track is mastrepiece and is much to easily brushed off.
Overall, the album is a 11/10. As are most of Tori's albums. As fas it being my favroite, yes it is, along with all of Tori's other albums, all being my favroites. Probably my favroite tracks are pointless to list since I love every song.

After over a year of listening to Tori Amos' albums, b-sides & seeing her live, this is my favorite album of hers. I think the reason why it's my favorite is because it's the first actual tori album that I had bought. My friend had compiled a disc of various songs for me to listen to, so I can get acquainted with this wonderful-mysterious artist. I desperately needed a silver-lining when it came to music... and tori was a great new outlet.
The reason "Under The Pink" was the first album was because there were NO songs compiled from the CD my friend made me. I was definetly curious!
Although, this album isn't ALL roses. There are some songs that took longer for me to get used to. I think the biggest song that was hard for me to get used to was "Bells For Her" which is very slow & dreary.
"God" was a song that I had heard before, but had forgotten until I heard the track. I remember seeing the crazy video! It's a favorite song of mine & very clever. "God sometimes you just don't come through/do you need a woman to look after you?"
"Cornflake Girl" is my all-time favorite Tori song ever! There's something about it that hooks me from beginning to end! I think it's just the way she goes to town on that piano! I think the lyrics rock too!! "Cornflakeboy21" is my AIM if anyone wants to say hello...
"Cloud on My Tongue" and "Space Dog" are other highlights on this record. "Cloud on My Tongue" is very beautiful-slow song. I actually prefer the live version of this song on the "To Venus & Back" live CD. "Space Dog" is just a very-rocking song with crazy lyrics!
