tori amos, boys for pele. this came out a while ago, but it is new to me. i was looking through my dad's cd's when i came across it. at first i found it odd, but that's just tori amos for you. at some points she reminds me of bjork (esp. in track 4 professional widow), and some of the lyrics are really out there... "he likes killing you after you're dead, you think i'm a queer, i think you're a queer." yea, i say that's pretty queer alright, but her lyrics are more meaningful than the average top 40er. she's a real musician whose great work i happened to find lying around my house, like a treasure waiting for me. i have another of hers i found, little earthquakes, but i can't bring myself to listen to it, i'm afraid it won't be as good as this one.
*for those who enjoy, bjork, ani difranco, pat benatar
*great for, mourning your late goldfish, or your short-lived "A" in biology. i feel your pain.
*my favorite tracks, horses, hello mr. zebra, hey jupiter
