A review of Scarlet's Walk appeared in the November 8, 2002 edition of the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Thanks to Lucy for sending it to The Dent.

Tori Amos, Scarlet's Walk, Epic: Since Sept. 11, plenty of musicians have paid homage to America -- or criticized it -- through their art. The latest tribute comes from an unlikely source. Personal trauma usually fuels Amos' introspective songwriting, but this time she was inspired by post-Sept. 11 patriotism. Thankfully, Scarlet's Walk is not jingoistic; it's a thoughtful, lovely tribute to facets of a great country that are often taken for granted. She sings about the beauty of American Indians and their lands (Carbon, Strange and Wampum Prayer); evidence of colonial America (Virginia); and the smell of honeysuckle (Another Girl's Paradise). Pay close attention to the album's prettiest melody, Your Cloud. This collection of 18 songs is, overall, more mellow than anything she's done, and it's her most cohesive record since 1994's Under the Pink.
