Boys for Pele is the third studio album by American singer and songwriter Tori Amos. Preceded by the first single, "Caught a Lite Sneeze", by three weeks, the album was released on January 22, 1996, in the United Kingdom, on January 23 in the United States, and on January 29 in Australia

States and WEA International for the world outside of the United States. Lyrics reproduced by kind permission.

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 is the harshest and most challenging work in Tori Amos' catalog. However, it also stands as the most cathartic, nourishing, and artistically thrilling of her career. Birthed in the wake of a devastating breakup, Pele is a sprawling ode to the feminine, conjured in a whirlwind of pain that forced Amos to embark on a quest into the dark unknown to find the fire within that had been snuffed out by the men in her life

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.

Anyone who has seen Tori Amos live knows that she, too, can writhe on the piano bench like a demon in heat. The daughter of a Methodist minister and a recovering Los Angeles big-haired heavy-metal singer herself, Amos knows what it’s like to be stuck between hard rock and holy rolling. But as 1994’s mischievous hit single God showed, she’s more interested in questioning the powers that determine the notions of sin than in castigating herself for guilty pleasures. God was just the opening salvo in the war on religion that Amos wages full-scale on Boys for Pele, her third solo album
