For at least a handful of Tori Amos fans, the question will always be: Y Kan¿t Tori keep remaking Little Earthquakes ¿ the 1991 record/revelation on which the henna-haired hellcat conclusively cast her pouffy-`do¿d Pat Benatar pretensions to the wind and produced an epiphany-rich, piano-and-strings-driven masterpiece. Whether pounding her piano to a pulp or just barely breathing on its keys, Amos displayed a breathtaking range of melody and mood ¿ from the empowering openers ¿Crucify,¿ ¿Girl,¿ and ¿Silent All These Years¿ to the music-box-melancholic, rain-on-the-windowpane-nostalgic ¿Winter¿ and ¿Mother¿ to the disconcertingly intimate ¿Me And A Gun.¿ By album¿s end, Amos had permanently laid to rest any as-yet-undispelled memories from her ill-suited, over-produced 1988 debut, coldly incanting over the closing track¿s apocalyptic, ¿Little Drummer Boy¿ rumblings: ¿Give me life/Give me pain/Give me myself again.¿ It was with Little Earthquakes that Tori Amos finally found her creative feet. To her credit, she has been pulling the rug right out from under them ever since.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
