  • With this debut, Tori Amos rose above the inevitable Kate Bush/Joni Mitchell comparisons, producing a stunning set of brutally honest and emotionally wrought songs. A skilled and imaginative pianist, Amos also proved a versatile vocalist, moving from whisper to scream in an instant. She concentrates on intimate stories of her religious upbringing, childhood traumas, and predominantly, sex, self-discovery and unhappy relationships. "Silent All These Years" was the first to hit a nerve with the public on single release, but all the tracks--memories of her father in "Winter," the bittersweet "Happy Phantom," the harrowing account of her own rape, "Me And A Gun"--combine to make this inspiring, if rarely comfortable, listening.

Tori Amos really is one of the best musicians I have ever had the privilege of listening to. Her songs are amazingly mesmorising and her lyrics unbaringly confessional. Her piano playing skills are amazing and she writes the most taunting melodies that are rivalled only by her voice. She sings with a uniqueness that no one else does and her vocals often sound so fragile and raw that she sings with amazing emotion. She truly is one of the best singer/song writers you will ever come across.
"Little Earthquakes" is my favourite of all her releases as it features a couple of my favourite Amos tracks. I would also say that it features her most brass and heart wrenching lyrics.
Favourite tracks include: Crucify, Winter, Precious Things, Little Earthquakes & Tear In Your Hand.
Happy Shopping!!

Little Earthquakes is a superb album. Tori Amos is a musician with true talent. Opening track Crucify introduces you to what you are in for. Strong vocals enhanced by enchanting lyrics. Little Earthquakes will leave you wanting more.
Other standout tracks are Precious Things and Tear in Your Hand.
a must have CD for any collection.

Tori Amos' debut album, Little Earthquakes, is one of her best album and contains some of her most poignant and disturbing songs. She exposes herself openly, putting forth her opinions and thoughts and does not shy away from her sexuality. There are also so deeply moving songs that move you down to the core. I strongly recommend this for any Amos fan, but it doesn't get 5 stars from me because after a while I got sick of the majority of the songs on this album.
