“After three classically influenced albums and a foray into a musical based on a 19th-century fairytale, Tori Amos has finally returned to the voice and piano format that made her a huge star in the 1990s. Unrepentant Geraldines is a family affair – recorded at husband Mark Hawley’s Cornwall studio, featuring a duet with 13-year-old daughter Natashya – which perhaps contributes to the personal, intimate feel. Amos has rarely sounded as vulnerable or exposed as she does on Invisible Boy or the lovely confessional Weatherman. Elsewhere, themes of religion, ageing and sex abound, but are delivered with an ethereal, fantasy feel that recalls the early Kate Bush albums. Trouble’s Lament tells of a girl running from Satan – which may or may not be a metaphor for real-life demons. The musically fuller songs are more hit and miss (Giant’s Rolling Pin is barmy), and Unrepentant Geraldines is more likely to thrill old fans rather than win new ones, but her voice has rarely sounded as powerful.” (The Guardian)
