What Can I say, It was love at first listen! Mind you, I only officially own Little Earthquakes, I do have her complete discography on Mp3. I'll get around to officially owning the others eventually.

I'm not exactly sure how I came to get into Tori. I was searching some of the Top Albums of the 90's on Rateyourmuisc.com or whatever it is. And came a across Sarah McLachlan, and similar artists, I think there were Tori Amos and Fiona Apple. So I got one album From Sarah and one from Tori. I put Tori on first and the rest was history

Hi Joyful! Long time, no see!

Gotta agree with you. I love the Venus artwork, including most of the singles from that album. The Choirgirl artwork was cool too, and Tori just looks hot on the Jackie's Strength cover.


@ Zoots not knowing Frangipani. You have much to learn, grasshoppa!

As far as Tori's album covers go, I really love the one for "From the Choirgirl Hotel". I think it's quite striking and perfectly fits the dark-fairytale vibe of the album. I often had a wish to recreate it in some other medium - tapestry or collage maybe.

"Beekeeper" is probably my least favourite, although I do like the album. I just find the cover art too cutesy and cloying.

It is gorgeous. I had it at one point, but I think I lost it when my computer crashed.

But she does a truly amazing cover of it. Tori!!!!

Is "Strange Little Girls" worth getting? It's the only Tori album I don't have and I've heard pretty mixed responses about it.

So I took a Creative Writing class a couple years back in college and one of the assignments was to do an "Original poetic re-write of a popular music song"

One of the girls in my class chose to do the Tori Amos song 'Me and a Gun.' This girl in my class was very beautiful and very sweet and had been raped earlier that year, and she wrote an incredibly touching and heartbreaking poem about her awful experience. Before that, I had no idea that Tori Amos had been raped and that 'Me and a Gun' was about her being raped. So I went and listened to 'Me and a Gun' and it is one of the most haunting songs I've ever heard.

Do you guys know this song at all? It is amazing. Words fail me.

Anyway, I'm like U2isthebest in that I don't have very much of Tori's catalogue. I will follow your guys advice and pick up an album or two. Little Earthquakes probably?

I really do love Strange Little Girls. Tori's covers of Rattlesnakes, Time, and Real Men are some of my favorite Tori songs to listen to, period, covers or not. My local CD store always has some copies of this album used, so if you could find it that way, I'd say definitely pick it up.

Me and a Gun is indeed haunting.

I always see Strange Little Girls used, but never pick it up. One of these times...
