With her haunting solo debut Little Earthquakes, Tori Amos carved the template for the female singer/songwriter movement of the '90s. Amos' delicate, prog rock piano work and confessional, poetically quirky lyrics invited close emotional connection, giving her a fanatical cult following and setting the stage for the Lilith Fair legions.

Commanding a significant and uniquely loyal audience from the rock, pop, alternative, and under-the-radar regions of the music world, Tori Amos has influenced generations of artists in a myriad of platforms. Her breakout came in the form of her stylistically diverse, remarkably innovative, and intensely personal debut, Little Earthquakes which was originally released on Atlantic in early-1992.

Little Earthquakes produced a treasure trove of singles including "Me And A Gun," "Silent All These Years," "China," "Winter" and "Crucify" - earning platinum certification in the US and selling over 2 million copies worldwide. Regarded as the most accessible release of Amos' eclectic career, the emotionally intense 12-song set hasn't lost any of its deep-rooted potency over 20 plus years later.

"Tori Amos' Little Earthquakes...felt like the quintessential debut album. A real document of someone's life. With songs about her mother, father, sex, religion, abuse and mental illness, it stood and shook as a monument to a life lived. Here was a woman taking stock of all her experiences to date and expressing them in the most magical, yet visceral, way possible...She would never top Little Earthquakes but she didn't need to. It's a monumental confessional masterpiece." - Priya Elan, NME

'With her haunting solo debut Little Earthquakes, Tori Amos carved the template for the female singer/songwriter movement of the '90s. Amos' delicate, prog rock piano work and confessional, poetically quirky lyrics invited close emotional connection, giving her a fanatical cult following and setting the stage for the Lilith Fair legions. But Little Earthquakes is no mere style-setter or feminine stereotype -- its intimacy is uncompromising, intense, and often far from comforting. Amos' musings on major personal issues -- religion, relationships, gender, childhood -- were just as likely to encompass rage, sarcasm, and defiant independence as pain or tenderness; sometimes, it all happened in the same song. The apex of that intimacy is the harrowing "Me and a Gun," where Amos strips away all the music, save for her own voice, and confronts the listener with the story of her own real-life rape; the free-associative lyrics come off as a heart-wrenching attempt to block out the ordeal. Little Earthquakes isn't always so stomach-churning, but it never seems less than deeply cathartic; it's the sound of a young woman (like the protagonist of "Silent All These Years") finally learning to use her own voice -- sort of the musical equivalent of Mary Pipher's Reviving Ophelia. That's why Amos draws strength from her relentless vulnerability, and that's why the constantly shifting emotions of the material never seem illogical -- Amos simply delights in the frankness of her own responses, whatever they might be. Though her subsequent albums were often very strong, Amos would never bare her soul quite so directly (or comprehensibly) as she did here, nor with such consistently focused results. Little Earthquakes is the most accessible work in Amos' catalog, and it's also the most influential and rewarding.'ALLMUSIC
