    I found this album completely terrifying the first time I heard it. It's still terrifying, but also absolutely incredible, and one of the most emotionally naked and raw pieces of work I've ever had the pleasure of hearing.

    Why isn't this the original tracklist?

    18 songs and 70 minutes, yet it doesn't feel long at all. Yep, this is her best album.

    Definitely one of her strongest work, if not the strongest.

    Why do so many albums on last.fm have the wrong release dates? Or are these re issue dates?

    Amazing album. Pretty terrible at first listen, but then eventually grew to be one of my favorites.

    THIS ISN'T THE CORRECT TRACK LISTING.

    Springtime of his Voodoo should be on there.

    i found a copy of this album just recently...languishing in the bottom of a pile of cds in a charity shop. One of my ex-partners was crazy about Tori, but i used to find her lyrics a real challenge. But i've really grown to like this album a lot. I love the sentiment behind Muhamed My Friend, and the anger behind Professional Widow. The way she sings Putting The Damage On...with the line 'my best Angie Dickinson'...such melancholy. It's such a good album...totally uncompromising and really quite unique. it's not easy for us female artists out there...Tori is someone to look up to in this respect. if you like unusual female artists please come say hi to me, and look me up on soundcloud/dolores-3

    Hey Jupiter -> Way Down -> Little Amsterdam is one of the most solid sets of three from any album ever. Love this too much

    The MOST difficult album of such complex singer-songwriter...but still one of her best / "Twinkle" is a peak

    It wasn't iTunes that messed it up. This tracklisting has been there since 1997, after the success of the PW remix. Despicable stuff.

    Whoever decided to take off In the Springtime of His Voodoo and add that crappy Professional Widow remix right in the middle of the album deserves to be shot. [4]

    I used to dislike songs on Pele because they are not catchy...but now I'm very thankful for this because you can hardly get sick of listening to it. On this album, Tori doesn't tend to please anyone else but herself. Great work!

    iTunes has decided to f*** around with the tracklist. "Whoever decided to take off In the Springtime of His Voodoo and add that crappy Professional Widow remix right in the middle of the album deserves to be shot." [2] Also, the Professional Widow track before the remix isn't even the original, nor is the song Talula. So annoying, especially when all the originals sound better. Fixed the tracklist in my iTunes now anyway, remixes straight at the bottom.
