Little Earthquakes

11 years, 11 months ago at Nov 15 23:12
'Little Earthquakes' showcases Tori Amos at her most direct and passionate. Many of the songs deal with reclaiming her Soul and voice, as demonstrated on 'Silent All These Years' and 'Me And A Gun', and it is not inconceivable that such songs were written as therapy after the well known incident of violence which was perpetrated against her person and spirit. The CD contains some of her least cryp... read more

Description: Emotionally and musically intense, Little Earthquakes shows that the piano is as much a rock & roll instrument as the guitar. Tori Amos's debut (if one disregards Y Kant Tori Read, as one would be well advised to do) is at once listenable and challenging; she takes on every topic, from sex to gender to religion, in an uncompromising manner.

"Tori Amos was dropped by her record label following the lukewarm success of her synth-pop act, Y Kant Tori Read. So the singer-songwriter was forced to reevaluate. Given that said project hadn't truly represented the image or music Amos wanted to create, she looked inward to find her true self. The introspection paid off, and yielded her game-changing 1992 debut, Little Earthquakes.
