But no more resentment. The release is a 9-track promotional compilation of Amos's singles from her first two solo albums, meant for radio stations to play to generate interest in the forthcoming album. The track "Precious Things" is mislabeled as "These Precious Things" on both the CD and the back cover, while "Crucify Remix " is listed when in fact the album version of the song is included.
The album's first single, "Caught a Lite Sneeze", was released commercially and to radio stations on January 2, , a full three weeks prior to the album's release.
This is a marketing tactic often used to build anticipation for a forthcoming album, and a sticker accompanying the US single blatantly acknowledged this: "Hear the first new music from Tori in over 2 years! Amos's marketing team made use of the internet to market and promote Boys for Pele.
Some reviews provided links to the Atlantic homepage or to Amos's homepage to listen to audio clips from the album,  while others provided telephone numbers to call to listen to audio clips. Critics overall praised the album's expanded instrumentation, and the acoustics that recording the album in a church afforded,  but otherwise reaction to the album was polarized, particularly with regard to the lyrics.
Boys for Pele is more lyrically dense than Amos's two previous albums, taking poetic obscurity to new heights. One reviewer observed that Amos's unfettered creativity due to serving as her own producer cost the album its accessibility. There's so much subtext in the music that's part of the story. Amy Gentry has noted the gendered way that many critics, male and female alike, approached the album. This included mockery of Amos' performance style for being overly sexualized, and criticisms of the supposed lesbian subtext in the album's lyrics.
The success of remixes from this album led to the album being reissued in both the US and the UK. In the UK, "Talula The Tornado Mix " replaced the original version of the song and a remix of "Professional Widow" was added to the album, immediately following the original version of the song. As a result of the extra "Professional Widow" track, the song "In the Springtime of His Voodoo" was removed completely.
Boys for Pele remained on the Billboard for 29 weeks throughout , before falling off the chart in mid September. In early , Tori Amos announced via Twitter that the album is slated for a deluxe reissue later in the year,  following the deluxe re-releases of her first two albums in The UK Reissue version of the album replaced the original version of "Talula" with the Tornado Mix that was released as a single.
It also included the hugely successful Armand's Star Trunk Funkin' Mix of "Professional Widow" which was placed at track 5 while the other tracks were pushed down in order. However, due to time constraints, the song "In the Springtime of His Voodoo" was removed from the track listing. The writing process and recording session for Boys for Pele is one of Amos's most prolific. Between the songs that were included on the album, included as B-sides, and included in later compilations, Amos composed and recorded approximately 35 songs during this time.
The chart on the left lists only the songs that were released as B-sides on singles from Boys for Pele. Many songs written and recorded for Boys for Pele were released in conjunction with subsequent albums or have yet to be released.
Three such songs, "Cooling", "Never Seen Blue" and "Beulah Land", were recorded for inclusion on Boys for Pele , but were kept off the album, later released as B-sides on the " Spark " and " Jackie's Strength " singles. Other songs were partially written during the Boys for Pele era and finished and released later: "Snow Cherries from France" appears on the Tales of a Librarian compilation, her final release with Atlantic ; "Apollo's Frock" appears on Scarlet's Hidden Treasures ; and "Walk to Dublin", which was left off the album after disagreements over the musical structure of the song between Amos and her label, then revisited again during the From the Choirgirl Hotel recording sessions, was not released until A Piano: The Collection It was released on a deluxe remastered rerelease of the album on November 18, Despite receiving mixed reviews upon its release, Boys for Pele has gone on to become a strong-selling album and to be cited as having been critically underrated.
