Why do wayward women have to be penitent?
That was the thought tearing through Tori Amos' mind as she gazed upon an etching entitled "Geraldine" by the Irish artist Daniel Maclise. "It got me thinking about not apologizing," the fiery (and fiery maned) singer-songwriter recalls.
Hence, Unrepentant Geraldines, her defiant and brash new album, which draws inspiration from fine art, Americana, and her own '90s-era alternative chamber-pop.
