TORI AMOS Little Earthquakes (1992 UK 12-track CD album including Crucify Silent All These Years Winter & China picture sleeve)
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. Her music appears gentle at first but this appearance is deceiving, as one quickly learns upon listening to the wrenching "Crucify" or the almost violent "Precious Things". By the time the album gets around to "Me and a Gun", sung hauntingly by Amos without accompaniment from her piano, the juxtaposition of Amos's sweet voice and the emotional complexity of her lyrics is both familiar and shocking. Sandman fans should listen for a reference to author Neil Gaiman in "Tear in Your Hand". --Genevieve Williams

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.
One cannot highlight songs here, because they are all very different, and very special each in her (as Tori insists thay are female) way.
An achievement, a work of art and power.
