** Actually, if you pay attention, Tori Amos makes fun of Trent a lot. (Trent returns the favor on Music/NineInchNails albums.)

* EpicRocking: "Datura". How the song progresses may represent a trip on datura. Tori has made a lot more epics, including "Yes, Anastasia" (9:33), "Little Earthquakes" (6:53), "Unrepentant Geraldines" (6:57), "Apollo's Frock" (8:14), "Lady in Blue" (7:12), "Garlands" (8:21), "Battle of Trees" (8:42), "Star Whisperer" (9:53), and "Happiness is a Warm Gun" (9:55).

* WordSaladLyrics: ''Boys for Pele'' was even panned by critics for its hard-to-decipher lyrics. One critic said that Gravity's Rainbow in Greek would be easier to understand! As her career has progressed, her lyrics have gone from slightly hard to figure out to some stuff that's almost like tone poems set to music.

* LoudnessWar: Her early and recent work both gloriously avert this trope (for example, ''Little Earthquakes'' and ''Unrepentant Geraldines'' are both [=DR11=], but some of her late '90s and early '00s work play the trope straight (for example, ''From the Choirgirl Hotel'' is [=DR6=]).

'''Tori Amos''' (1963-) is an American pianist and singer-songwriter. Her music walks the fine line between {{baroque pop}} & straightforward {{alternative rock}}. She has ventured off into other terri[[IncrediblyLamePun tori]]es, like electronic (''from the choirgirl hotel'', ''To Venus and Back'', ''Abnormally Attracted to Sin''), funk/soul/gospel (''The Beekeeper''), big band ("Pink and Glitter"), adult contemporary (''Scarlet's Walk'', certain songs on ''The Beekeeper''), country ("Not Dying Today", "Drive All Night") and even folk ("Wedding Day"). She has written about many topics, including rape, masturbation, war, religion, feminine sexuality, homosexuality (and related topics), betrayal, and... [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible other things]]. [[http://thegospelaccordingtorichardcroft.wordpress.com/2010/01/26/515-tori-amos-little-earthquakes-1992/ Richard Croft]] said it best about the public's perception of her: "The image of Tori Amos most widely known in pop culture is sort of like an American Music/{{Bjork}}, a modern Music/KateBush, a feminist icon, a screeching, red-haired banshee who flails wildly at the piano and sings all sorts of man-hating anthems for her throngs of similarly screeching, red-haired fans." Note that this description was tongue-in-cheek; she is not misandric, and her fans have a variety of hair colors.

* AuthorAvatar: The "[[DecompositeCharacter dolls]]" of ''American Doll Posse'' all represent aspects of Tori Amos herself, with a hint of SelfParody. Isabel is Amos's political side, Clyde is her "sad girl at the piano" persona, Pip is Tori the screaming banshee and Santa is her sexy side. The doll named Tori is a caricature of all Amos, though she emphasises her "Earth Mother" persona.

* TakeThat: It's been said that "She's Your Cocaine" is Tori's response to the fact that her close friend Trent Reznor was foolish enough to bed CourtneyLove and not expect trouble.
