Commanding a significant and uniquely loyal audience from the rock, pop, alternative, and under-the-radar regions of the music world, Tori Amos has influenced generations of artists in a myriad of platforms. Originally issued on Atlantic in 1994, Amos' extraordinary second album Under The Pink finds the eclectic singer/songwriter migrating from the confessional intensity of her breakout 1992 debut Little Earthquakes to a much more playful tone.
Describing the release as her "impressionistic album," Amos explores soft-loud dynamics here amidst mostly piano-based material with weaving guitars, violins, and bass loops interspersed throughout. Propelled by the hit singles "Cornflake Girl" and "God," Under The Pink shot straight to number one in the UK, her highest charting album there to date. The wonderfully evocative 12-song set also received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Alternative Music Performance.
