TORI AMOS Crucify (1992 US 5-track CD single including the remix version and Winter plus cover versions of Smells Like Teen Spirit Angie and Thank You [different tracklisting to the UK edition] picture sleeve)
Top Customer Reviews
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!Read more ›
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.

It's short, but damn good. And it's completely worth the wait for the last track, Tori's cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit". This CD stands alone in itself. Read morePublished on April 3 2003 by D. Brown
