No way, PJ has fallen off way harder. Tori just released a really impressive musical two years ago. I think her albums have also been completely decent. She recorded a song with her daughter for the first time, wrote maybe the greatest song ever about plastic surgery disasters, lots of other stuff. I'm very sorry I just missed her play. She absolutely runs circles around PJ who I think really needs to find another line of work at this point.
>>
>>76275627
is this b8
>>
>>76275659
Why would it be bait? Compare their last 5 years and Tori will annihilate her. I just think at this point PJs priorities are elsewhere and her music is just a vehicle for that. She's obviously more interested in missionary work or whatever the fuck she's been doing.
>>
>>76275689
cuz tori is cringy af and doesn't know how to edit or produce a decent album anymore? and pj just released one of her best albums only 6ish yrs ago while tori hasn't been relevant since like 2001
>>
>>76275781
Ok we can go back 7 years

PJ - 80 minutes on 2 albums
Tori - 7 hours on 5 albums

no thats completely wrong and you know it

>>76275844
quality over quantity and that is exactly why tori is bad now. she legit just puts everything on an album no matter how bad it is. a lot of music publications don't even pick toris albums up for reviewing anymore, that's pretty bad man.

and can u explain why uve decided that pj and tori need to be compared? why aren't we talking about bjork too?

Because women are only marketable as sex objects and aren't considered to be capable of anything technically impressive by society. Largely due to biological norms, mostly due to gender roles, partially due to people wanting to piss of "feminists".

Yes, its wonderful. Dissonant auto-harp on a Sunday morning at 9am, a sample from the Four Lads "Instanbul" present in the song for once, all as Gordon Brown looks on. You're watching history.
>>
>>76279559
Kinda feel bad for Leslie Rankine. She had a great voice and did some interesting stuff, but her "extreme" feminism (that was tame compared to current feminism) was source of mockery bcs that meme 90s phrase.
Silverfish and Ruby became bargain-bin core and aren't even on Spotify

Tori Amos never hid the Kate Bush influence, but it's like she got stuck in "The Red Shoes" since 98
She needs to get divorced asap, her husband is literally killing her career. Like if ruining her songs with his shitty wah-guitar wasn't enough

Why doesn't /mu/ ever discuss Juliana Hatfield, Liz Phair or Lisa Germano? Exile in Guyville is probably the most well received female album in decades. Geek the Girl is maybe the best female album of all time. It's not just Scaruffi, pretty much everyone in the music world acknowledges how good those artists were.
>>
>>76280227
Bcs the're plebs/waifufags and those artists dont have enough photoshoots to fill a thread.
Lisa Germano is awesome and her output is solid, but Liz made 1 1/2 decent album and Juliana was a joke even in the 90s. How about Tanya Donelly, Kristin Hersh (their solo work is strong), Cat Power, Kendra Smith, Hope Sandoval (yeah, I know she only co-wrote in Mazzy Star) amongst others
Anyways the "girly girl with distorted guitars" scene in the 90s was a fad a needs to be forgotten, Juliana Hatfield was the first but MTV was flooded with shit like Eves Plum, Letters To Cleo, Veruca Salt, Frente! and a lot more literally who's. Poe was probably the only decent band to come out of that scene
>>
>>76275342
>hips lips tits power

Bit sexist. Probably wrote by some fat wanker.
>>
>>76275477
Her new album is pretty good actually.

I fucking love her early work but yeah, she really fell of over the last decade or so.
>>
>>76280227
I fail to see what's interesting about Lisa Germano and her Geek the Girl album. It has a couple of pretty good songs but the rest is harmless, generic alt-rock with some orchestration here and there. She is not a good singer and not a very imaginative lyricist.

Scaruffi is such a pleb. He praises this dull album but gives low ratings to much more interesting female songwriters/producers (Bjork and Kate Bush) just because they're more well-known.
>>
>>76279102
Not him but Tori's latest album "Native Invader" is much-much better than PJ's. Can't argue on Let England Shake though, that one is fantastic.
>>
>>76279894
It's a shame that she married her sound engineer. Mark's a shitty guitarist and he is really holding her music back imo. Just imagine her music with actual musicians...
>>
>>76281851
PJs last was nice but a bit boring, sounds like LES b-sides to me. I keep getting disappointed with the Tori releases so I just stopped trying. The guitar work and production have just all over the place, rehashed themes, vocals really inconsistent etc

They play her in the grocery store a lot and that makes me feel rly sad and old desu
>>
>>76281893
yeah what the fuck there's no way she can't hear how bad he is. also if she just released less and threw out all the album filler we might be good
>>
>>76281851
Native Invader: 1 gr8 song and 60 minutes of boring rehashed Tori

Hope Six: No standout tracks but it's consistent and doesnt sound like anything she's done before, still a solid 7/10 album

The main difference between them is that while Polly is constantly pushing her boundaries, Tori prefers to continue doing the safe same album since "the beekeeper"

>>76281893
Thats one thing, the other is that he manages her touring schedule and booking fees. Out of the three artists in OPs pic, Tori is the only one that never toured South America for example.
He's literally destroying her career

>60 minutes rehashed Tori
I highly disagree with you. Native Invader has at least 4-5 great songs, 5 decent songs and maybe 2-3 forgettable ones. I wasn't a big fan of it first but it grew on me a lot. I love PJ as well but unfortunately I just couldn't get into Hope Six, like something that made her previous work so unique was missing.
>>
>>76282270
Hope Six was kinda disappointing, but she's currently touring with Mick Harvey and the drummer from Gallon Drunk, something tells me her next one will be awesome
>>
>>76282178
Hotel, Venus, and Scarlet are good records. It's around the beekeeper when she started to make really mediocre stuff.
>>
>>76282310
Let it be true. I actually believe that LES is her second best album, I wonder if she could ever be able top that. But Mick Harvey is a good sign indeed.
>>
>>76282360
what's her first for u?
>>
>>76282374
To bring you my love. You?
>>
>>76282360
She's playing "down by the water" live for the first time in decades and hanging out with some ex-Bad Seeds lately. If it sounds at least like an Anita Lane album I will be happy

>>76282322
Hotel is gr8, venus and scarlet where ok but wayyy too long. But yeh, The Beekeeper was when everything went downhill.
She literally needs to divorce and "come to Brazil", it could be the kick that she needs to get old edgy Tori back
>>
>>76282405
Same, but I didnt like "is this desire"at first and now I love it, something similar happened to me with "hu hu her" (still skip some track thou), so maybe HSDM will eventually grow on me as well.
"To bring you my love" is hands down her masterpiece, everything that makes her great is on that album, following it must been hard, but she did alright

The 3 of them didnt have a problem writing songs about fucking, Tori got married to a dork and PJ just went into a more "artistic" direction (for now)

For a start, Scaruffi thinks Lisa is like Joni Mitchell and Lou Reed.

Secondly taking off your waifufag-tinted glasses he has never given Kate or Bjork low ratings and rates several of their albums as good, he has just never given the exceptionally high rating that he gave to albums by Alanis, Tori and PJ Harvey who are also well-known. Partially because he doesn't just go by songwriting or production

Love Circus is a good place to start since its one of her more melodic albums, Slide and Happyness are great too. Then you can go to In the Maybe World or her debut, or just go straight to her magnum opus, Geek the Girl, Lullaby for Liquid Pig is also pretty decent. Listen to everything else after that if you want.

Pretty sure Alanis owes most of her success to Glen Ballard, but they couldn't have pulled it off without her being a great performer and her live shows were great.
She did a small co-headlining tour with Tori but I don't think Tori was happy about it. You can tell she was listening to too much Tori when her and Glen wrote JLP but at least she never tried to hide that. Super inconsistent after her debut sadly
>>

>but they couldn't have pulled it off without her being a great performer
Note. Being a great performer =/= being a great singer.

Alanis was apparently massively butthurt about dating/dumping that guy from Full House, but once she'd finished venting her spleen on JLP and its tour, she pretty much ran out of drive.

Nice that people are talking about Tori for a change. She's always ignored on /mu/.
Her recent albums are indeed very bad but this woman put out some insanely good music back in the 90s. I think her first four albums are all fantastic. She's a brilliant piano player as well, one of the best in the context of popular music.
She has run out of ideas though.

I really like PJ Harvey. The thing with her though is that I wouldn't place any of her albums among my favorites. She has never put out anything that completely amazed me. But yeah, she's great.

Didn't hurt that Tor was a qt. Boys for Pele is in my top 3 all time albums prolly.

Nice to see someone that appreciates PJ but isn't obsessed. I notice she doesn't have many casual fans, it's either love or hate her. She's my favorite of the three nowadays!
>>
>>76296823
Some of her newer songs are nice but nothing I would be listening to if I hadn't been a fan of her earlier work.

I still have this magazine, got it off eBay when eBay was new because I wanted to read the interview so bad and Q wasn't sold here. Whatever happened to music nerds collecting shit?

I still remember riding my bike with a pocket full of mostly change to buy this Spin issue with Polly on the cover. There was a great issue with Tori on the cover not long after. This thread is giving me all kinds of nostalgia.

Wild Way

I assume it's my own theory but who knows maybe she's said that's what its about. I don't really follow her.

Is there a single 90s Indie Rock band that's fronted by a female? Only one I could think of is Throwing Muses, but they don't really count. Sleater-Kinney don't really count either.
>>
>>76297551
The Amps
>>
>>76297578
As soon as I posted I regretted not banning all of the Kim Deal bands (as The Breeders are also Indie Rock I guess), and I guess Kelley Deal's band as well.

I was thinking earlier about how great a Bult to Spill/Seam/Bedhead/Grifters-esque indie rock band with a female vocalist could be, but then I realized that none exist.
>>
>>76297551
Daisy Chainsaw, Babes in Toyland, Bikini Kill, L7, Drain STH(girl band that reminds me of Alice in chains) a few others not worth mentioning
>>
>>76297637
All of them are a lot heavier than your typical 90s Indie Rock sound (although I haven't heard STH). I think I worded my initial question too vaguely.

Babes In Toyland are pretty good though.
>>
>>76297673
>(although I haven't heard STH)
Wait nvm I'm retarded, I assumed you also listed the band Drain, which obviously doesn't have a female lead.
>>
>>76297673
lol my bad, I wouldn't bother checking any of them out then! STH is metal.

Bikini Kill was fun, kind of girly riot grrl punk!
>>
>>76297673
Try Curve
>>
>>76297713
Thanks for the help anyway.

Bikini Kill are good. Had a small Riot Grrl phase a few years back so I'm already familiar.

>>76297754
Curve are good, but not what I'm after at all.

That's my bad though, my post was too vague considering how specific the sound in my head is.

Try: Geraldine Fibers, Belly (1st album), Poe, Luscious Jackson, Laika, Stereolab and some of their side proyects (Monade, Snowpony)
All those bands are 90s as fuck.
Also, Silverfish/Ruby since the're being mentioned here.

Too bad Trent chose to do blow with Courtney instead of taking a plane to help Tori with some tracks for BFP. She got hella pissed and wrote "professional widow" for Courtney and "cought a lite sneeze' for Trent
At the time it was a good thing, looking back, not so much

>>76297602
you could try Antietam or 11th Dream Day
>>
>>76297602
>I was thinking earlier about how great a Bult to Spill/Seam/Bedhead/Grifters-esque indie rock band with a female vocalist could be, but then I realized that none exist.

Yes they do:
-Come (literally a female version of early Grifters)
-Geraldine Fibers
-early Cat Power
-Glass Eye
-Th' Faith Healers
-Mercy Rule

Late 90s bargain bins were literally full of obscure bands that fit your description. Most where shit thou, like Vomit Launch or Tara Key
>>
>>76298648
>11th Dream Day
Mah nigga, "Sunflower" was my jam, although I wouldn't consider them "female fronted" they shares the mic, like Radial Spangle and lots of 90s bands that had a girl in their lineup

where should i start with tori, friends. is y kant tori read necessary?
>>
>>76299082
Under The Pink > Little Earthquakes > From The Choirlgirl Hotel > Boys For Pele >>>> Scarlett's Walk > To Venus An Back
You can just stop there, Y Kant Tori Read is not bad (I rather listen to that than The fucking Beekeeper), but not essential. Its a fun album and also short, wish she did something like that again
>>
>>76299128
thx dude
>>
>>76299082
Under the pink is a good starting point. Boys for Pele is her masterpiece but it's very inaccessible.
Don't listen to "Y kant tori read".
>>
>>76299128
I'd just go for Under the Pink, Boys for Pele next, and then Choirgirl
>>
>>76298387
Shirley Manson is tight but she doesn't belong with these three. Also Garbage wasn't even a thing yet.
>>
>>76295204
The problem is that JLP was so massively overplayed/overexposed that it turned into cancer and people didn't want to be seen with that CD on their shelf which was why thrift stores ended up with mountains of them.
>>
>>76300870
For me Choirgirl is more accessible than Boys.. the fact that its shorter and more varied in styles makes it more easy to get into.
Boys for Pele is a masterpiece, but you need to be in certain mindset to get into it, also, you need the original version, not the reissue with that awfull remix of Talula that ruins the flow and one of the best tracks at the same time, why Tori? Why???
>>
>>76296677
what the fuck
>>
>>76300993
Yea you're probably right I'll second this. I just adore Pele but it's difficult to rec.
>>
>>76300915
But Angelfish was already around, yeah, they where another generic Curve ripoff, but Shirleys picture was already around music magazines.
Anyways, the day she makes a solo album as good as anything released by this holy trinity, then she might join the club. She's awesome but needs a solid band behind her
>>
>>76299470
I think Y Kant Tori Read is great it reminds me a lot of the kind of stuff Laura Branigan did.

Personally I would start with To Venus and Back simply because the live album included is absolutely godly. Tori in her prime was one of the best live performers ever.

I never really go back to it, think I pulled it out once in the past 20 yrs just for nostalgics sake desu.

>>76301223
Tor had the weirdest fanbase. No idea what to expect at my first show and it ended up being a bunch of metal heads, all the weird gays, a fuck ton of pretty but damaged girls, and a ton of goths. Really odd vibe but everyone was super into it.
Anyone remember her singing with Maynard?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Sarah Mclachlan yet. Surfacing and Fumbling Towards Ecstasy were both gems. The 90's were pretty much the golden age of female music. No other decade has even come close.

I think the only female worth a damn that played at Lilith Fair is Fiona Apple. Sarah Mawhatever did have a sweet voice tho.

There were just so so many middle of the road female singer-songwriters getting signed. Probably Melissa Etheridges fault.

The problem with Boys for Pele is that the tracks don't really flow together. I find it really difficult to listen to the record all the way through in one sitting because of that. I would cut maybe 2 or 3 songs and slightly rechange the track order. Nevertheless the music is really strong and powerful, definitely her best album in my opinion.

>>76301045
>Personally I would start with To Venus and Back simply because the live album included is absolutely godly
I totally agree. I love that live album because it's a full band performance and they stretch out the songs nicely. I wish she would still have full band performances instead of solo shows.
>>
>>76301060
Yeah, I've never seen a Tori Amos thread on /mu/ before with so many replies. I have a feeling that just not many people knows her on /mu/.

Great pick. My favorite song is probably Horses.

>I wish she would still have full band performances instead of solo shows.
Her rider includes two full sized pianos and a very specific hapsicord, that why she doesn't tour much, her booking fees are insanely high, if she added a band she would literally go broke.
Basically, she needs to pull her head out of her ass, get a fucking Nord, a backing band and do a proper tour.
>>
>>76303329
>if she added a band she would literally go broke
I find this hard to believe but so be it. I blame her husband.
>>
I really think Toris old work went under the radar when she started making adult contemporary and it kind of became embarrassing instead of cool to say you like her.

When she dies people will start talking about her work and influence again. Sounds dark but it's probs true!
>>
>>76298727
Come is probably the closest thing to what I was imagining.

>I wish she would still have full band performances instead of solo shows.
Me too. Compare something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjXZrzmdnAE to some of her recent shows and it is obvious how much better it was when she toured with an actual band. While i doubt she would still sound this good in 2017, i'm sure having a backing band would still make an enormous difference.
