Tori Amos .....a pure musical genius & prodigy that is what becomes crystal clear when you enter her world of music. It is a gift & a priviledge to listen to this artist who just gets better & better with each new CD that she introduces. Although this is one of Tori's older & likely smaller CD's one can't measure it in size due to the impact of each song on this CD which is just pure delight! I would suggest to potential new listeners of Tori that you simply check out all her CD's because they are unique and will be music you will be able to listen to for your lifetime!

1.Crucify (Remix): Love the piano work and her vocal phrasing on this song (as with most) are just remarkable. I just love this song so expressive about recognizing one's mistakes in life. Love the other background vocalists as well on this track!

2.Winter:Simply put just one of the best ballads to be written & executed. Her voice sounds so lovely coupled with the beautiful piano work. I have also put this track on my Xmas playlist just because it reminds me of that time of the year & it breaks up alot of traditional Xmas music. Just a remarkablely well written song....I perceived this song as being one that expresses the relationship of a father & daughter as she is growing up. It is an empowering song in the respect that often parent's have to subtly push their children into a direction of adulthood at some point so they will be able to stand on their own two feet...finding the correct balancing act to be able to do that is the key. Sounds like someone did a good job in her case given the duration of her career. Love all the orchestral instruments used in this piece..just so well combined. I love that breathy part she incorporates near the end of the song; sounds so good!

Being a devoted Tori Amos fan, I try to collect as many of her singles/EPs I can because Tori always includes some wonderful b-sides like cover songs. The cover songs are the primary reason I bought "Crucify" 2-3 years ago. Like a lot of other reviewers, I like this version of "Crucify" over the album version found on "Little Earthquakes". It sounds closer to what I have heard in concert. I'm also glad that "Winter" wasn't altered. It is one of my all-time favorite Tori songs, not to mention ballads. As for the cover songs, I thought all three were great. I was never a Nirvana fan. I always thought they were highly overrated and "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was played to death. The only credit I give Kurt Cobain and co. is for killing the careers of Poison and their ilk. I like Tori's version a lot more. I didn't find it to be for a good laugh unlike another reviewer did. Unlike Nirvana's version, I can honestly hear the lyrics being sung clearly. Tori succeeds in giving the song an emotional feel which the original version lacks (unless you count giving me a massive headache an emotional feel). I also enjoyed Tori's interpretations of "Angie" and "Thank You". I know that Tori is a big fan of Led Zeppelin so I think I understand her choice in covering a Zeppelin song, but I'm not really sure about "Angie" or "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Still her renditions were executed as well as Tori plays the piano. "Crucify" is a must have for Tori fans, new or old alike. This is not a throwaway album.

Whereas this EP, particularly Tori's cover of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" seemed to introduce Tori Amos to many listeners, I only discovered it after I had embraced the magic of the Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink CDs. Unlike the vast majority of artists, Amos releases EPs containing wonderful, must-have songs not included on her albums, and this Crucify EP is her consummate EP offering. First, there is a remix of Tori's powerful song "Crucify" (although, to be honest, I can hardly tell the difference between this remix and the original song). Next is "Winter," perhaps the most beautiful song Amos has ever recorded. The true magic of this particular CD rests in the remaining three cover tracks. Tori makes the Rolling Stones' "Angie" her own, singing it with great emotion and her patented edginess of voice--the end result is a hauntingly beautiful song. The eye-catching track on the EP is the cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." She strips this song down to its lyrical core and makes of it a really tender, beautiful piece of music. Finally, Tori stamps her individual imprint on Led Zeppelin's classic "Thank You." The piano-playing is superb, and she performs some lyrical gymnastics that would make Robert Plant himself jealous, but I tend to lose the song amidst the music. As a total package, this EP reveals the power Tori Amos possessed very early on in her career. Some may buy this just to hear the actual words to "Smells Like Teen Spirit," but even the unsuspecting are almost guaranteed to find themselves wrapped up in Tori's musical web of beauty, grace, and meaning.

This is my first review with Microsoft Office 2000. Let's see if improved software can give my opinion more credence.
Tori Amos is quite simply a wonderful musician. Her music comes from the heart, she truly uses her voice like an instrument, and her singing just melts me. Because I highly respect Tori musically, I enjoy hearing covers that reveal her own musical partialities and her distinctive revision of songs she likes. "Angie," a song from the Rolling Stones' more decadent days, is tremendously beautiful with the implicit intimacy of Tori's effortless singing. Great piano arrangements too. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is truly radical compared to the original. Instead of Kurt Cobain's loud, crass delivery with ringing guitars and pounding drums, Tori sits down at the piano and sings it quietly and beautifully. Finally, Led Zeppelin's "Thank You" gets the Tori-treatment. The piano is achingly good here, and Tori's voice...well, its awfully pretty. Funny how I've never really loved Led Zeppelin, but covers of Led Zeppelin songs are almost always excellent.
The EP version of "Crucify" is, in my opinion, superior to the album version. Although this one is shorter and lacks some of the piano flourishes of the "real" version, I think this is a more compelling arrangement, with the added guitars. The EP version of "Winter" is unchanged, which is fine, because you shouldn't mess with perfection.
