Under the Pink is the second studio album by singer-songwriter Tori Amos. Upon its release in January 1994, the album debuted atop the UK Albums Chart[11] on the back of the hit single "Cornflake Girl", and peaked at number 12 in the US.[12]

The album was certified double Platinum in the US by the RIAA in October 1999,[13] for sales exceeding 2 million copies. It was the 61st highest-selling album of 1994 in the UK[citation needed] and was certified platinum by the BPI in February 2007,[14] for sales exceeding 300,000 copies.

Under the Pink was included in Blender magazine's list of 500 CDs You Must Own,[15] and was voted among the greatest albums of the 1990s by Rolling Stone magazine some years later.[16] A special double-disc tour edition was released exclusively in Australia and New Zealand in November 1994, titled More Pink: The B-Sides.

Background[edit | edit source]

On Tori Amos' second solo album, the singer-songwriter continued to offer piano-driven rock songs dealing with religion, gender, and sexuality. However, the album is generally regarded as being more abstract and less directly confessional than its predecessor, Little Earthquakes. In addition to featuring more cryptic lyrics and experimental song structures, Amos invited in reggae influences on the single "Cornflake Girl," prepared piano on "Bells for Her," and Debussy-inspired piano lines on the sweeping nine-and-a-half minute epic "Yes, Anastasia".

While Under the Pink contained several singles and fan favorites, it was "God" and "Cornflake Girl" that solidified Amos's place among the canon of 1990s alt rock musicians. Steve Caton's dissonant guitar work on "God," paired with the frank lyrics of "Do you need a woman to look after you?" were risks that paid off for Amos in the musical landscape of the mid-1990s. The song also boasted a video in which Amos enacted rituals from different spiritual traditions, including dancing with a snake and being covered in rats, visuals that surely left an impression. "Cornflake Girl," with its catchy piano solo, reggae-inspired guitar rhythms, and refrain, became a mainstay of Amos's live performances early on. That single featured a darkly humorous US video as well as a more abstract black and white UK one, so both visuals contributed to the worldwide impact of that song.

Amos performed the Under the Pink tour from February through November 1994, encompassing many of the same stops as on the previous world tour. A limited edition release of the album commemorating the Australian tour included a second disc entitled More Pink, a collection of rare B-sides like "Little Drummer Boy" and a cover version of Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You", was issued in November 1994. During this period, she also contributed the song "Butterfly" to the soundtrack for the 1994 movie Higher Learning, as well as a cover of the R.E.M. song "Losing My Religion".

The album was recorded in Taos, New Mexico in a hacienda. The album artwork features several Native American and New Mexican references in the photography. The album is also notable as the last Amos album to feature the production of Eric Rosse as they split that year. To date, Under the Pink remains her highest-charting album in the UK and has sold more than two million copies worldwide.

According to Tori Amos in Upside Down Fanzine #4, "On Under the Pink I was more influenced by painters than other musical artists."

She told Keyboard Magazine in November 1994, ""Sometimes it [Under the Pink] is a little more lyrically detached. They [the listeners] can really crawl into the painting. I wanted Under the Pink to be more abstract, for many reasons. I was really into certain poets at the time, like e.e. cummings, and painters like Dali. I had this whole thing going where I liked codes and going with your senses. It was a bit of a maze, and you as a listener had to work to find out where we were going. Little Earthquakes was a bit more voyeuristic. You could sit back and watch this girl go through this stuff. You can't on Under the Pink; you have to go through it to understand it."

According to an Upside Down flyer, "If there's a theme on Under the Pink, it's one of self-empowerment -- whether it's women acknowledging the violence in themselves or people coming to terms with the loss of hope. It's about the refusal to see yourself as a victim, and how to have passion in your life without equating it with violence. It's just as personal and just as involved as before. There might be other characters in these songs that we haven't met before, but it's still me."

And in January 29, 1994, from Oor, "This album is a self-healing experience to me. I have met a lot of people who were working on themselves, as it's called. You have two types of people. The first walks into the room and radiates like an angel, she's so loving and unselfish, that you would want to be her. Wow! Then you make friends with that person and find out she's got a second face and that is: locking herself in her room and crying all day long. She doesn't want anyone to see her differently than as an angel, but with that she's too strict for herself, and destroys herself that way. Enlightenment doesn't mean the denial of demons in yourself, but the confrontation of them: Okay who's in there today? It's not about people saying 'Oh, Tori is a nice girl.' I want to be someone with responsibility, someone who's conscious of what she does. If I hurt you, I get vulnerable myself. That's the way it works. The second type I mean, has learned the full works of Jung. She's very intelligent, but also the most bitter person I know. She has so much information and can talk about it so brilliantly, that you think: what an enlightened soul. Both types have a certain intelligence and a certain gift, but they're both destructing themselves. We mustn't make too much demands of them, and stop shooting ourselves."

According to the Virginian Pilot July 17, 1994, "I refused to watch TV or listen to radio during the whole making of that record [Under the Pink] because I couldn't afford to be influenced. I usually have an inpouring [of creative stimuli] while I'm on the road. But when I start to write and create, then I close the door because I don't want to start going, 'Oh, let's change the whole structure of this because this is kind of cool.'"

"Pink is a color with healing properties, representing the energy of love. Pink is, however, also the color that appears when we skin ["unmask"] ourselves... Everyone is pink under the skin and that is what I wanted to express. The world within is what is important to me..." The quote is from the John Bolton newsletter, Summer 1994.

Critical Reception[edit | edit source]

According to Ned Raggett of AllMusic, "...it has been unfairly neglected when in fact it has as good a claim as any to be one of the strongest, and maybe even the strongest, record she has put out.

According to Ned Raggett, "...it has been unfairly neglected when in fact it has as good a claim as any to be one of the strongest, and maybe even the strongest, record she has put out." He continues, "Amos combines some of her strongest melodies and lyrics with especially haunting and powerful arrangements to create an artistic success that stands on its own two feet."[1]

Greg Sandow of Entertainment Weekly writes, "Amos’ music is more striking still. She’s a formidable pianist, able to play with both power and trembling delicacy. She writes songs that take off on unexpected flights, blossoming without warning into explosions of melodic fireworks."

Overall, the album gained mostly positive reviews since its released.

Text Interviews[edit | edit source]

"I had no choice, really. The songs just came. They seized me w"n I was going to a store. They said, 'Hey babe, it's time to talk about this or that subject.' Then I would go home and sit behind the piano and the idea began to take shape."

"I felt so deceived. People that I fully trusted have lied to me. Three songs on Under the Pink tell about it: 'Cornflake Girl,' in which I describe the shock, 'The Waitress,' in which the violent side is shown, and 'Bells for Her' in which the loss is described." - Tori Amos, Haagsche Courant (January 29, 1994)

"Around Christmas 1992 my tour ended and I went to New Mexico to rest. We were there in a 150 year old hacienda, a sacred place for the pueblo, and that had its effect on all of us. Silent all these years took possession of me. Literally. All my songs are existing creatures. Her energy took possession and my reaction to that was: No way! Silent is the gatekeeper, the Styx, the twilight zone. She told me of the babies that wanted to cross. She said, 'It's gonna be a painful labor, or I'll help you so that it'll be easy.' She LIED! It didn't run smoothly at all. It came in waves, one song after another, like a religious experience. I was at a feast of American Indians [Tori has some Cherokee blood in herself], on which they were pounding drums continually. That touched me in quite a primitive way, right in the kundalini [Tori grips herself in the crotch], but I also felt personally frustrated, like I had to deal with the feelings with regard to the patriarchy, for one last time. 'God' came very fast, but I had to be cautious, because you can easily make a mistake." - Tori Amos, Oor (January 29, 1994)

"There is a triangle on this record: the songs 'Bells for Her,' 'Cornflake Girl,' and 'The Waitress' -- a triad about women betraying women, that's a kind of theme here. We women have to deal with the patriarchy first, but then, what's the alternative? Do you need a woman to look after you? I'm here to apply for the job. But when you say patriarchy, you don't have to be a man to be part of the patriarchy. After I read Possessing the Secret of Joy by Alice Walker, about how mothers sold their daughters to the butchers; that kind of floored me. One always feels safer when there are good guys and bad ones. But there are no good guys out there. And it's not as if one sex can make it okay." - Tori Amos, The New Review of Records (January 1994)

"Under the Pink is a place. It's an internal place. It's the inner world, the inner life. You have to listen from your stomach. To me, it's all there. But you've got to be willing to put your moccasins on and walk down the road."

"This album is a self-healing experience to me" - Tori Amos, Hitkrant (March 12, 1994)

"I was gonna take a year off, but the songs just demanded that I tell their story, and their story was about life under the pink. That's why the album is called Under the Pink. These are just some of the different lives that happen in that world. If you ripped everybody's skin off, we're all pink, the way I see it. And this is about what's going on inside of that. That's what I'm really interested in, not the outer world but the inner world. There are many other songs that live under the pink. These are just a few of them, these are just the girls who decided to come to the party." - Tori Amos, Performing Songwriter - March/April 1994

"I recorded this record in New Mexico, some of you know this. And the spirits are very, very funny there because you think that they hate your guts. And this one Indian told me, he goes um, 'The mountain doesn't like you very much, Tori.' And I'm going, 'Too bad.'" - Tori Amos, Sacramento, CA concert (September 9, 1994)

Under the Pink Tour[edit | edit source]

Amos's second world tour, the Under the Pink Tour, began on February 24, 1994 in Newcastle upon Tyne and ended on December 13, 1994 in Perth, Western Australia.

Notes

  • The original track listing included the B-side "Honey", which was left off the album at the last minute. Amos has since voiced great regret for this:

"There were certain songs that were supposed to be on the record that got kicked off. 'Honey' was supposed to be on the record and, in retrospect, I wish it had been. I kicked it off for 'The Wrong Band'. Under the Pink wept when 'Honey' wasn't on, and she still is angry with me about it."[23]

  • Amos made a similar reference to the song "Here. In My Head" which was originally featured as a B-side to the UK single of "Crucify".[24]

More Pink: The B-Sides[edit | edit source]

The double-disc version of Under the Pink was released on November 14, 1994[25] by East West to coincide with Amos's tour of Australia and New Zealand. The second disc, titled More Pink: The B-Sides was never released separately, and is a rarity amongst Tori Amos collectibles. Amos would not release another collection of B-sides until 2006's A Piano: The Collection.

The back of the More Pink: The B-Sides release.

The packaging simply inserted the normal Australian release of Under the Pink in a double jewel case, and altered the back insert artwork so that instead of being blank it featured the track listing of the second disc as well as production information for the songs. The title More Pink may be misleading, as many of the B-sides on the disc did not come from Under the Pink singles but in fact from the 1992 album Little Earthquakes, and in one case, from a Christmas compilation. The length of this disc is 48:49.

The double-disc set entered the Australian ARIA Charts Top 100 Albums chart on the week ending December 11, 1994, peaking at number 44 and spending 6 weeks on the chart.[26] However, it was listed on the chart as a re-entry of Under the Pink, with its weeks spent charting added to the 21-week tally achieved earlier by the album.
