TORI AMOS - Whatīs the best album?

This week I heard the cover she made for Running to Stand Still and I simply LOVED after that I heard some of her songs, and I adore them... No I want to buy her album, but whatīs the best? Would it be Scartletīs Walk or The Choirgirl Hotel?

Thanks.

I own all of her albums, and Boys for Pele is my favorite. Scarlet's Walk would also be a wonderful choice, though.

Boys for Pele, definitely. Harpsichords rule.

Tori is well suited for a greatest hits. At least for me. Since I find her to be a little hit and miss. But when she hits, DAMN does she hit!

You have to start with "Little Earthquakes."

That is one of the best albums ever made! Then move from there, but start with that one.

Songs like:
China
Winter
Crucify
Precious Things
& Little Earthquakes will blow you away!

i ordered the "until the end of the world" soundtrack on half.com and when i got it the person had thrown in under the pink for free cause there were initials she didn't notice on the cd...i haven't listened to it...

to be honest, i didn't like her version of rtss much...

Start with Little Earthquakes. It's a fabulous album and not as "scary" as Pele, Under the Pink, or Choirgirl. Or you could just wait for the Greatest Hits.

I Tori!

When will this "Greatest Hits" be released?

I head "Silent All These Years" from Little Earthquakes... and for me itīs just an ok song! But Iīll download other songs of this album

By now my favourite song is "Cornflake Girl"

I should have known this fabulous singer before...

Do you mean also with style? I love her Professional Widow type stuff and looking at other singles shes had like Cornflake Girl etc, I've been wary of ever buying anything as she seems to change tack with every new album.
Maybe the Best Of would be the best place to go first...
