A review of Tori's Strange Little Girls album was posted on the Entertainment Weekly web site on September 17, 2001. They gave the album a B-. Thanks to Joe and Matthew for letting me know. You can read this review at EW.COM, or in the actual Entertainment Weekly magazine. (I am not sure of exactly which issue.) You can also read the review below.

Music Review by Laura Morgan

The famously eccentric chanteusenot only reimagines--from a woman's point of view--songs by such disparate male acts as the Boomtown Rats and Slayer, but poses Cindy Sherman-style in the CD artwork as the characters she's conjured. The conceptual conceit might be lost on fans who can't figure out what inspired Amos to appear, for instance, as a Goth chick for 10cc's "I'm Not in Love." Still, Girls is largelya success, even if most cuts sound traditionally Tori. She lays bare the pathos of Eminems's " '97 Bonnie and Clyde" and the stark gravity of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence." Part off-the-rails feminist art project, part sheer genius.

Grade: B-

I have a report that the print version of the magazine gave the album a B. Perhaps they left the minus off by accident, or the web site, which has B-, is wrong.
