Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Spin (1/97, p.59) - Ranked #13 on Spin's list of the '20 Best Albums of '96.'

Spin (3/96, p.109) - 9 (out of 10) - "...Part clasp-key dream diary, part coded message, part erotic Rorshach test, Amos' lyrics are so hermetic they'll set you tripping....her music [is]...full of breath but refusing climax, laced with brass filigrees and melodic tendrills, cut with shadows and grit..."

Q (2/96, p.93) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...it utilises the strangest brew of instruments to create its effect, with harpsichord, mandolin, harmonium, organ, bagpipes, gospel choir and even the Delgany church bells passing through....it is surely the sound of Tori Amos they way she wants to sound..."

Musician (3/96, p.87) - "...Everything on BOYS challenges the listener to accept the artist on her terms as she speaks in her own poetic language and follows her muse through territory both familiar and vaguely forbidding..."
