In the latest Zagat Survey Music Guide (Rolling Stone was heavily involved) of the top 1,000 best albums of all time, Tori Amos is featured at #28 on the most popular list with Little Earthquakes. Sadly, none of Tori's other albums ranked. They also categorize music for the best selections within a category like "Break Up" or "Chill Out".

1992, Atlantic; "Winter";

"Heartbreakingly honest", this "astonishingly assured debut" launched "quirky singer-songwriter" Tori's career with a "series of surreal musical portraits"; "strong yet fragile", she mixed a "remarkable vocal range", "prodigious piano prowess" and "incisive lyrics" - and "made a generation of girls feel it was ok to feel the way they did"; it's "an emotional journey" that "scares the bejesus out of you", but "never has an exorcism sounded so beautiful."
