From the confusion and chaos that marked one of the most harrowing episodes in American history comes Tori Amos's masterwork. Scarlet's Walk, the follow-up to her critically acclaimed covers LP, Strange Little Girls, was written on a cross-country road trip shortly after the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. Over the course of 3,000 miles and 18 tracks, the crimson-haired singer encounters rogue lovers ("A Sorta Fairytale"), reformed porn stars ("Amber Waves"), and an entire cast of characters who embody the spirit of a country suddenly searching for an identity. The album serves as both an ambitious travelogue and as a graceful rejoinder to the bitterness and frustration that inspired it, with Amos wading through swells of sadness ("I Can't See New York"), anger ("Don't Make Me Come to Vegas"), and insecurity ("Your Cloud") with velvety grace. --Aidin Vaziri

I haven't listened to this near enough, so far there's not one song that stands out but they're all good. Another great album from Tori!

"I have never had this happen before, and had to write this review as soon as I could to document this strange event. This CD has 18 tracks, and I was so shocked that I LOVED EVERY LAST ONE! I have never had that happen before...there are always two or three songs on a CD that I just can't get into, but this one pleased me from beginning to end and back again. It ranks right up there with Little Earthquakes for me and can't recommend it enough. I hope you will give it a try and that you will enjoy your walk with Scarlet. There is little else to compare and I doubt you will be displeased."

"Possibly the most brilliant/matured album Tori Amos has produced. The record is like a sonic journey following the narrative of a character, Scarlet, as she travels through North America. Her songwriting lyrics are brilliant. I don't think you'll find a single bad track on the entire thing. Definitely recommended as a staple for any Amos fan!"
