With Boys For Pele, Tori Amos produced a rather stripped down album with lyrics about her break-up, along with the struggle of recovering from said break-up. Songs also dealt with creative issues, with Tori singing of her struggling to record her album without her longtime lover’s help, along with small town murder (Little Amsterdam), death (Marrianne and Not the Red Baron), her rivalry with Courtney Love over Trent Reznor (Professional Widow), and sexism in Islam (Mohammed My Friend). Boys for Pele Q&A.
Boys For Pele while receiving wide acclaim has many Amos followers divided especially as it was a major shift from her second album " Under The Pink". It is though a bold work with some excellent songs although the albums major drawback is that it is too long. This was endemic of many albums around that era when it was the norm for some artists to have circa 80 minutes of studio material for each release. When I found that TORI AMOS had been added to a full Prog genre was of incredulity and lets be honest, a bit of disappointment.

Boys for Pele, the title of Tori Amos's epic third album, is as awkward and confusing as the music inside. Though it sounds like a recruitment slogan for Little League soccer, the name actually refers to the lost temples of feminine divinity. Pele, you see, is the Hawaiian volcano goddess; the boys, well, they're the sacrifices that quell the rumbling lady's rage. Attempting to regain fires stolen long ago, Pele rewrites the crucifixion to star a girl Jesus and in doing so conjures a forgotten matriarchal mythology. and I haven't looked back since. After I listened to this I was in love and knew that I had found my soul mate lol.
