    Album Rank 2020

    It is a new decade! What is your Tori album rank and your favourite personal stand out song(s) from each album (like a few songs you would play to a friend from each album to give them a taste of why you like the album)?

    The big change for me is Scarlet moving up to number 3. It used to be after Pink and Venus and even Native Invader - like number 6 in my album list. But now I just adore it. And I am being harsher to TBK, ADP and AATS as albums as a whole. I have put the albums into tiers as they sometimes switch places and I do love many of them equally...

    Tier 1 - Amazing!
    Little Earthquakes - Little Earthquakes & Precious Things & Mother & Winter
    From the Choirgirl Hotel - Hotel & iiiee & Northern Lad & Liquid Diamonds & Jackie's Strength
    Scarlet's Walk - Crazy & I Can't See New York & Fairytale & Sweet Sangria & Virginia & Strange
    Under the Pink - Past the Mission & Bells for Her & Pretty Good Year & Yes Anastasia
    Boys for Pele - Horses & Caught a Lite Sneeze & Putting the Damage On & Hey Jupiter
    Native Invader - Reindeer King & Bang & Bats & Benjamin & Climb & Cloud Riders
    To Venus and Back - 1000 Oceans & Lust & Riot Poof & Suede
    Unrepentant Geraldines - Selkie & Forest of Glass & Oysters & Dixie & Weatherman & America

    Tier 2 - Amazing but not as good as tier 1
    Night of Hunters - Shattering Sea & Fearlessness & Carry & Star Whisperer
    Strange Little Girls - Real Men & Raining Blood & New Age

    Tier 3 - Quite good
    Midwinter Graces - Holly, Ivy and Rose & Our New Year & Winter's Carol

    Tier 4 - Lots of potential and lots of guilty pleasures on these - but I don't really love them as albums - seem more like B-sides albums to me. They feel like misses to me. I would recommend the 11 albums in the first 3 tiers to new listeners, but not these 3
    American Doll Posse - Drive all Night & Beauty of Speed & Mr Bad Man
    Abnormally Attracted to Sin - Flavour & Give & Fast Horse & Ophelia (yes - really)
    The Beekeeper - Martha's Foolish Ginger & Garlands
    I see myself sort of as a small to medium vineyard. And they usually don't sell as much as the screw-top wine down in Safeway. But I don't make wine for Safeway. God bless Safeway. If I am a winemaker I am not going to make screw-top wine ~ Tori Amos
