The January/February 2002 issue of Maxim's Blender magazine (with Alicia Keys on the cover) printed their "50 Best Albums of 2001" and Tori's "Strange Little Girls" placed # 33. There was a picture of the "Time" character (the album cover) with the following caption:

Tori Amos "Strange Little Girls"

In a career of bold moves, this Top 5 hit was Tori Amos's boldest yet - a collection of covers that puts a provocative femme spin on 12 traditionally male narratives by everyone from 10cc to Slayer. Amos plays it fast and loose (okay, slow and loose) here, rewriting Eminem's "'97 Bonnie & Clyde" and the Beatles' "Happiness is a Warm Gun" into harrowing goth oddities that became her own.

Here are some of the other albums on the list:

1. Bob Dylan - "Love And Theft"
2. Jay-Z - "The Blueprint"
3. Ryan Adams - "Gold"
4. Radiohead - "Amnesiac"
5. Mary J. Blige - "No More Drama"
6. Macy Gray - The Id
7. Alicia Keys - "Songs In A Minor"
8. Basement Jaxx - Rooty
9. Destiny's Child - "Survivor"
10. System of a Down - Toxicity
22. Bjork - "Vespertine"
33. Tori Amos - "Strange Little Girls"

Thanks to Scott, Johanna, Josh, Steve the sweet fat man, and Johanna for telling me about it.
