There seems to be a bit of a schism between piano goddess Tori Amos and her oh-so dedicated fans. While she's been busy reinventing herself from emotional singer-songwriter to sassy character rocker and now back to her roots, fans have been craving the Tori they fell in love with some 20 years ago.
You can count me among those who have fallen out of love over the past few years. There have only been traces of the Amos I knew in the '90s. The last true glimpse might have been with 2005's "The Beekeeper." Even then, it was just a glimpse before she lost character completely, going even deeper into the obscure, abandoning the sensitive but empowered girl-and-piano vibe in favor of a cadre of rock-and-roll personae who opened her "American Doll Posse World Tour" in 2007.
It's been difficult to watch.
