for those not familiar with the work of tori amos, one could say that little earthquakes is the perfect place to begin. while by no means a commercial album, this one does carry universal appeal & seems to be the one that most tori fans fell heart & soul for. the other albums are great too but this is the one that turned me on to her complete body of work that would unfold in the next 16 years. little earthquakes is everything that a solo album should be. it's intimate, it's clever & it posesses that fiery passion which lets the listener know we will be hearing much more from the artist in the near future. one could even go so far as to say that tori amos is writing songs which are inspired by our diaries if we didn't know any better. yes, she is the real deal. her experiences & wisdom are every bit as necessary as the piano she plays so beautifully. tori also has the gift of a lovely voice. i would gladly state my pick of picks as far as tracks go here but every song is a winner. you simply cannot go wrong with any track on this album. if you have never purchased a tori amos album, you really need to get this.
I would recommend this to a friend
