Thanks to Josh, Jill and Natasha for being the first to tell me about this. Tori is part of the "500 CDs You MUST Own Before You Die" list in the April 2003 issue of Blender Magazine. (w/Eminem on the cover.) Tori is in the Alternative Rock section. They print the following:
"UNDER THE PINK"
Effortlessly straddling the middle ground between Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, Tori Amos and her Bosendorfer piano detailed tails of poor-quality sex, hostile waitresss and Amos's trademark kookiness. She's not as sweet as she looks, obviously. STANDOUT TRACK: "Cornflake Girl"
