I wouldn't make it a priority. It has some classic songs on it though. Happiness Is A Warm Gun and '97 Bonnie & Cylde are particularly great along with what others have said.

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?
That's a great song. It is always amazing to see Tori's impact on people. Me and a Gun is stunningly beautiful. It is without a doubt Tori's most important song. You should definitely pick up Little Earthquakes. I hope you enjoy discovering Tori's discography.

to all of that

While Me & A Gun is not a favorite of mine, I agree it's her most important song.

Zoots! (and others!)

Have you heard the version of Raspberry Swirl called "Ambient Raspberry Swirl (Scarlet Spectrum Feels)"? It's over 8 minutes of chilled out Tori, and as a fan of chillout and ambient music, I just love it. It takes a couple minutes for the beat to kick in, but once it does...very sexy and moody!

Anyhow, I was just listening to it and figured I'd suggest it for all you Tori fans out there who might not have heard it.

Oooo, I have it. I don't think I've ever given it the attention that I now know it deserves. I'll dig it out and give it a listen.

I think it's a b-side to "Cruel".

Heartland Girl sent it to me. It's cool but I need to listen to it again. The original Raspberry Swirl is dizzyingly fantastic!
