During tours, we do our best to cover setlists in real-time on Twitter. If you want to tweet a show in, just DM or @ us on the day and tell us to watch your stream that night.
Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
Laura Snapes’ strongly-worded and less-than-favorable review of Midwinter Graces for NME (apparently that is; it hasn’t been posted on nme.com as of yet though it may have appeared in the print edition already) generated a bit of a flurry in the comments. Agree or not with her critique or not, such is the way of music criticism.
Thanks to toribr for catching this one!
Tori Amos – Midwinter Graces
November 4, 2009
Worst cover art in the world. What are you supposed to be, the Angel Gabriel?If NME were a contrary gift guide edited by Ebeneezer Scrooge, ‘Midwinter Graces’ would make for a resplendent Noel. But we’re not, and the Eastenders seasonal double bill looks more joyous than the birth of Jesus in comparison to Amos’ offerings. She royally fucks up traditional carols like ‘Star Of Wonder’, where the orchestral accompaniment has all the class of a cheap MIDI karaoke track. Aside from the drunk auntie trying to grope you beneath the mistletoe cabaret of ‘Pink and Glitter’ and the sickeningly pious child duet, ‘Holly, Ivy and Rose’, she’s tiresomely lachrymose – but even those who enjoy being miserable at Christmas won’t bother with this hideously arranged collection.
