"Surrender! Then start your engines." For some of us, it must be admitted, almost every week is Tori Amos week. But over at PopMatters, this week - that is, the-release-of-Gold Dust [review] week - is Amos week. So saddle up for the first day of the Performer Spotlight series featuring exclusive interviews with Amos and her collaborators, album re-appraisals (Scarlet's Walk and Strange Little Girls here), classic concert moments and much, much more besides. The series kicks off with my essay on identity and image in Amos’s work, which you can read right here.
