- Boys For Pele (1996)
This brilliant and complex work was released in January 1996. This is her most intense and dark album, and one of the most complex. It remains for me a close second favorite after Scarlet's Walk. Read what Tori has to say about this album and what it is about. This album was rereleased a few months after it's debut with the Tornado Remix of Talula on the album instead of the original version. The Japanese version of Boys For Pele contained a bonus track called Toodles Mr. Jim. On February 10, 1997 (a year after it was originally released) a special edition of Boys For Pele was released in the U.K., which contained the Armand Van Helden remix of Professional Widow and omitted In The Springtime Of His Voodoo. You can get more details on this album and listen to sound clips at the Atlantic Records web site.
