In her new album, she makes me remember Neil Gaiman again. I'm starting to gain a better appreciation for Tori Amos' new album, Night of Hunters. Especially now that I found online a list of what songs were used for each one.
I particularly found the song The Chase interesting because it reminds me of the battle Morpheus had against the demon to regain his items of power in Sandman issue #4.
"I am hope."
Here's the original piece that inspired the new Tori Amos song. I do love also how Job's Coffin is an original inspired by a song she wrote based on a classical one. Talk about inspiration drawing from inspiration!
And for those wondering about the rest, here's the full list.
