Tori Amos is easily my favorite artist in the past decade. Her music takes me to another plane of reality. I found her music extremely comforting to listen to when I was in my darkest moods. "To Venus and Back" was my first Tori Amos album I bought. "Little Earthquakes" came second. One of my favorite songs on the album was the sparse ballad "Winter". It is amazing that "Winter" is ten years old yet it sounds amazingly fresh and holds up well against the trends in music. I bought the single "Winter" one day when I was on a Tori rampage and bought a slew of her singles. What I really appreciate about Tori Amos is that she includes b-sides tracks that you don't find on her albums. Now singles have gone the way of cassette tapes and eight-track tapes (can't say I miss them). On the single for "Winter", there are four b-side tracks. I have heard most of them live when I saw Tori come through Minneapolis in the past three years. The songs are absolutely amazing. "The Pool" is one of those songs that literally sends chills running down your spine. Very haunting and lovely to listen to. Very Delerium-esque almost. I would love to see Tori perform the song live. The production value is excellent with every song. "Take to the Sky" is excellent especially if you have seen Tori perform it live. Same with "Upside Down". "Sweet Dreams" is a quite good. I have yet to see Tori perform the song live. I hope I don't have to wait very long for Tori to hit the road again. She is an incredible performer.

This CD single is truly incredible. Most artists would give their teeth to record five songs this good over their entire careers. Winter is one of Tori's earliest yet most beautiful songs, as any Tori fan surely knows. Each of the other four songs is worth the price of the CD in and of itself; getting all four together seems like stealing--that is how good they are. The Pool is rather weird, but in a totally good way. The few lyrics of the song are blended into an atmosphere of dark, haunted, shrouded passions; I consider The Pool to be more akin to a deep-felt emotion than a mere song. The remaining three songs are stellar, quintessential Tori. Coming on the heels of her first album, they capture her boundless spirit, energy, and genius, while also somehow managing to betray similarities to her later work on Boys For Pele. Take to the Sky sports some intense lyrics; its jaunting pace is forcibly seized and intensified by what sounds like Native American war drums as she approaches each chorus. Sweet Dreams has elements of darkness wrapped inside its seemingly happy title; Tori casts her blinding light of musical passion on the hypocrisy of her fellow man yet seems to admit that she herself is not immune to humanity's innate faults. Finally, Upside Down ensures that this CD is to forever be a masterpiece. Only Tori can write such poignant lyrics as these. The song seems to fit in nicely with the mood, message, and stylings of her Little Creatures album. All of these songs should be on an album, really, so that all of her fans can easily find and enjoy them. Tori fans simply must own this CD single; it represents Tori at her most musically pure and honest best.

Any fan of Tori Amos will adore this. Or, if you want to introduce someone to Tori but don't want to buy a full album, here is your answer.
I'm pretty new to buying Tori singles, but this one has definetly made me hungry for more. It starts off with "Winter." It's impossible to deny the beauty of this song...everyone I've played it for has adored it.
The second track, "The Pool," is very mystical and different...different in a very, very good way. That is the beauty of Tori.
"Take To the Sky," the third track of the single, is one of Tori's best friends. The song is AMAZING all the way through, and also very fun to listen to. If you have any doubt as to whether you want to purchase this single or not, this song is your reason to go for it.
"Sweet Dreams" is about the same style as "Take To the Sky," and that makes it great. "I got lizards and snakes runnin' through my body, funny how they all have my face."
Last, but DEFINETLY not last, is "Upside Down." WOW. Everything about this song is amazing, from the piano to the lyrics to Tori's voice (of course). It's no wonder this song is popular amoung the Toriphile community.
In short: buying this single is something you won't regret.

This single was the first Tori CD I ever owned ( Ah... memories) so naturally, I'm a bit biased. Even without the latter fact, I would still say that this is one of Tori's best- ever singles. "Winter" has so many emotional ties to me that I'll love it till the day I die. "The Pool" is so cilling and yet very soothing at the same time. Often I put it on repeat while I meditate. "Take to The Sky" is nice' But it's not one of my favorites ( that's not to discount it's own beauty as a song, I just don't feel that strongly about it). "Sweet Dreams" sounds so insipidly happy that, if you never read the lyrics, you'd never guess it had serious substance. And finally "Upsde Down" is very unique and somber sounding. The "Metatron" in the backround is a nice addition. All the songs keep very well to the theme of the single, and lend a memory-like feel. Oh one last thing before I finish this review: ignore the edirtorial. The Ep spoken of there is the U.K. version of "Winter" ( which is actually the U.S. version of the "Crucify" single, meaning you'll find all the songs mentioned in the editorial on "Crucify").Other than that, this is a great Ep that no-one should miss out on. This cost is minimal and the songs are awesome, perfect for beginning Tori-ites:)
