    The Sonic Reverie's Gold Dust Review

    Thursday, October 04, 2012 | 23:24 UTC | Posted by Beth | Reviews

    The Sonic Reverie takes on Gold Dust in a new review that praises the album’s strengths while pointing out that the orchestra often plays a secondary role — and that the album might not be the best way to introduce new listeners to Tori’s music. (There’s also a pretty spiffy photo of Tori I haven’t seen anywhere else.)

    Montreal Gazette's Gold Dust Review

    Thursday, October 04, 2012 | 23:16 UTC | Posted by Beth | Reviews

    The Montreal Gazette has a review of Gold Dust. Although they give it 3 stars (out of how many?), they question the need for the record, pointing out that many of the songs were backed by strings the first time around.

    Wednesday, November 16, 2011 | 03:33 UTC | Posted by woj | Reviews,Touring

    Nikita Ramkissoon reviewed last Saturday’s Johannesburg concert for The Times. While the photographs included might not be quite as stunning as Reney Warrington’s shots, the review is no less glowing, calling Tori’s performance, “nothing short of genius.”

    Johannesburg Concert Photos From Reney Warrington

    Wednesday, November 16, 2011 | 03:32 UTC | Posted by woj | Reviews,Touring

    While we normally don’t link to too much from the blogosphere, it is definitely worth noting Reney Warrington’s review of the third Johannesburg show due to the stunning photography included within.

    Regardless of whether a press pass was involved or not, kudos to her for catching some great shots of Tori in, um, “flagrante piano.”

    The Age Of Epic Reviews NOH

    Thursday, October 20, 2011 | 17:13 UTC | Posted by Beth | Reviews

    Robert Fontenot at the The Age of Epic blog has turned his attention to Night of Hunters and deemed it “Awesome.” Although his treatment of Tori’s catalogue is frequently critical, he mostly likes Tori’s latest. Click through for all the details, in his own words.

    The Daily Interview (September 26, 2011)

    Monday, September 26, 2011 | 22:17 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles,Reviews

    Don’t you think there was a time, what, in the ’20s, when the idea of art being challenging was what art was? And now, so much of it, you’ve heard it once, and you’ll say to yourself, ‘Oh, hang on a minute, that’s just like another song that I heard on the radio two hours ago, which is just like another song I heard last week …’ There is, right now, not an encouragement from those that are setting the trends — I’m not talking about the artists, I’m talking about labels, even the radio. They’re not always supportive of challenging the masses. I think sometimes they fear that, because what if the masses wake up and decide that they don’t need all these institutions and corporations and can’t be led by them because they’re thinking for themselves?

    The Daily has a unique article on Tori, up today, in which they interviewed her and took some stunning photos in a Manhattan warehouse which has turned into the interactive set of the New York production of “Sleep No More.” Writer Rich Juzwiak ruminates on the new album, Tori’s history as a musician, her propensity for the impenetrable, and her ability to be down-to-earth at the same time.

    EDIT: Check out additional images from the photo shoot by Victoria Will here. Thanks, Mario!

    The Wild Hunt Asks: Is Tori Pagan?

    Monday, September 26, 2011 | 17:52 UTC | Posted by Beth | Reviews

    At The Wild Hunt, a widely read blog on pagan news and ideas, writer Jason Pitzl-Waters reviews Night of Hunters and discusses the pagan themes on the album. In it, he examines whether it confirms Tori as a pagan herself. Although Pitzl-Waters doesn’t reach any conclusions, he does say, “I personally think that labels like ‘Pagan’ probably matter little to Tori Amos, and that anyone who walks so deeply into faerie is ‘with us’ in all the ways that truly matter without having to pin it down.”

    The Star Ledger Reviews Night of Hunters

    Saturday, September 24, 2011 | 17:34 UTC | Posted by woj | Reviews

    We’ve been a little hesitant to flood Undented’s front page with all the reviews of Night of Hunters that are popping up — and there are many — but this one from The Star-Ledger caught our eye. In it, classical music critic Ronni Reich and pop music critic Tris McCall have a dialogue about the record, giving a little more perspective and insight into the album that many reviews might reveal…

    P.S. We have been posting links to any and all reviews over on our Twitter stream (which we really should export to the sidebar of the site one of these days) so if you’ve been itching to read more critiques of the record, head on over there for that deluge.

    The Scotsman Night of Hunters Review

    Tuesday, September 20, 2011 | 04:16 UTC | Posted by woj | Reviews

    Appearing this past weekend in Scotland on Sunday and on The Scotsman’s ebsite today, Colin Somerville’s review of Night of Hunters calls it “intensely personal” and “a real record by a real artist,” while noting that its song-cycle concept makes it a cohesive whole. No score is given, but it’s certainly tips the scales on the “good” side.

    Thanks to Erin for bringing it to our attention!
