Tori is not presently on tour.
The Metro followed up their interview with Tori with a review Night of Hunters. Critic Robert Heller takes issue with the album’s high concept but finds merit with some of the songs —although one suspects that the editor’s axe may have taken much of the meat of the analysis…
Tori Amos’ Night Of Hunters is fraught with pretension
Album review: Tori Amos’ latest effort Night Of Hunters is at times fraught with pretension and overwrought arrangements, but some songs find their magic.
Tori Amos is no stranger to ‘kooky female singer’ epithets. Night Of Hunters, which draws inspiration from classical music, is unlikely to change that.
Recorded for respected classical label Deutsche Grammophon, this song cycle (’tis no mere album) tells of romantic loss confabulated with time-travelling Irish ancestors, wrathful poets and shape-shifting foxes.
Amos’s Bösendorfer (the daddy of grands) is paired with a bevy of classical instrumentalists. It is fraught with pretension and overwrought arrangements and borrowings from Mussorgsky and Chopin are obvious – but other songs find their magic.
Snowblind revels in the Bösendorfer’s famous sonorities, while Seven Sisters’ reworking of a Bach prelude is indeed inspired.
