Tori Amos Goes Internal with “Native Invader”

Tori Amos
Native Invader (Decca Records)

On this, Tori Amos’ 15th studio album, the veteran presents more questions than answers. She explains herself thusly: “The songs on Native Invader are being pushed by the Muses to find different ways of facing unforeseen challenges and in some cases dangerous conflicts.” The record seems to try to seek resilience and healing as the artist confronts both nature and complex interpersonal relationships. Amos’ confessional songwriting has been pushing boundaries her entire career, and the same holds true for her latest effort. Messages of empowerment, tenderness and self-acceptance are central to tracks like “Reindeer King,” “Broken Arrow” and “Up the Creek.” Amos is also arguably one of the more thrilling live performers around; catch her on a North America tour this fall, starting October 24 in St. Paul.
