Default Tori Amos' Boys for Pele 20th Anniversary appreciation thread

So, OK, I've been pretty vocal with my disdain for current Tori Amos albums. But that does not diminish my faith and respect for her golden years. In particular, this album.

Never before or after did Tori hit on such a dark, raw, personal level. To many fans, this album is a life changer. For some, a life saver. It abandoned the awesome but poppy approach of her first two best sellers and offered something else- a challenging, disturbing epic that was all consuming and relentlessly emotionally draining.

So, on its 20th anniversary, give Boys for Pele a spin. Revisit those memories. Or discover it for the first time. It really is a masterpiece. Share your memories with the album here, I would love to hear them!
