By the time she was 17, Amos had a stock of homemade demo tapes that her father regularly sent out to record companies and producers. [20] Producer Narada Michael Walden responded favorably: he and Amos cut some tracks together, but none were released. [20] Eventually, Atlantic Records responded to one of the tapes, and, when A&R man Jason Flom flew to Baltimore to audition her in person, the label was convinced and signed her. [19]

”Mary’s Eyes,” which closes the album, threads Native Invader ’s needle; over drones and bleakly insistent piano, Amos sings of an unknowable mother who is clearly suffering, with “hymns locked in her memory” that can possibly be unlocked by patterns and sequences, and banishing sadness. It’s about Amos’ mother Mary, who lost the ability to speak in the wake of a stroke she had earlier this year. But the pain that suffuses Amos’ passionate vocal performance and the warnings of climate change doom that preceded that track make it feel like it’s doubling as an allegory for the mother Earth, which cannot raise its voice in self-defense even as it’s being hurtled toward a crushing fate.
