I must say I don't know why Tori doesn't want this album re-released. It is very good. Sure it sounds like Madonna, Berlin, Blondie and Bannanarama all rolled up into one but hey, it was the 80's.  This album is full of crafty songs and good musicianship. Tori's talent as all here if just in an 80's Genre. If you want one look out for ones with bonus tracks as they are bootlegs. I found a web site and downloaded it. I figured if Tori doesn't want to sell it then why not download it for free.

Little Earthquakes is a great cd. When I first heard it I thought I was hearing some new album by Kate Bush. Beautiful piano work with emotional songs with a lot of feeling. Songs like Crucify and China are prime examples of this album.

While I don't feel Under The Pink is as good as Earthquakes it still has some classic tracks. Past the Mission, Cornflake girl and Space Dog. This album is still a good one to have if you are a Tori Fan.

I skip Boys For Pele beacuse I really couldn't get into it. I did see the tour and was still willing to try Songs From The Choirgirl Hotel. I'm Glad I did because I think this album is Tori's masterpiece. Great use of guitars and synths along with Tori's voice and piano work. Absolutely my Favorite.

To Venus and Back Live is one album of live material and another of studio. the studio material is very much like Choirgirl hotel and the live album improves on some of the older songs. There is also a live version of Sugar which is great (if you ever find the single for China, buy it because it has the original version of Sugar on it). A good Effort.

Scarlets Walk
If you like Choirgirl Hotel and Venus and Backs studio side you will love this one.

The Beekeeper
Tori Amos just keeps cranking them out. The Beekeeper continues with music similar to that of Scarlets Walk. I don't think it is quite as good but it is pure Tori.

American Doll Posse
OK, a different direction. If you are looking for Scarlets Walk or Songs From the Choirgirl Hotel you won't find it here. Politics, Social commentary, whatever you think of it is here. But it is good. Maybe not Tori's best but It has some good tracks and there are a lot of them.
