i don't understand why a lot of tori fans are so obbsessed with this one oppose to her ABSOULUTLY AMAZING later works such as boys for pele, chiorgirl, to venus & back, strange little girls, & scarlets walk.
i can understand why fans love under the pink so much (i do myself) because it is one of the most beautifully constructed records ever made. but little earthquakes falls kind of short is a lot of places although it's still amazing.
if i were introducing soemone to tori, this would not be the fisrt record i'd play for them. the first one i'd play would be chiorgirl & then under the pink.
don't think i'm bashing little earthquakes, because i'm not. its just that her later works are sooooooooooo good.
Crucify . an excellent opening track, beautiful lyrics, I especially like 'I got a bowling ball in my stomach, got a desert in my mouth...' excellent vocals.
Girl . a different pace, the vocals are amazing, the chorus shows off some of Tori's higher range.
Silent All These Years . slow song, beautiful lyrically.
Precious Things . one of the best piano driven songs, the beginning is haunting with Tori's rasped hushes. A story like song.
Winter . a nice slow song, peaceful and very beautiful, a visual song, it takes you through a wintery scenery.
Happy Phantom . takes on a different pace, if you have 'Scarlet's Walk', this reminds me a lot of 'Wednesday' in a ghostly way.
China . slow almost tragic like, I absolutely adore the lyrics.
Leather . starts off with one note piano key then Tori's sad/sarcastic/drooping vocals come in, the opening line hooks you: 'look I'm standing naked before you ... don't you want more than my sex'
Mother . my favourite song by Tori, ever. BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT.
Tear In Your Hand . 'maybe she's just pieces of me you've never seen' - perfect song.
Me And A Gun . sad, tragic story about rape, acapella, this song could bring anyone down.
Little Earthquakes . a nice ending, a slower song, beautiful lyrically, vocally and musically.
In all, this is a perfect album.
