Tori's Strange Little Girls album was reviewed in the September 14, 2001 edition of The Express in the U.K.. Thanks to Lucy for telling me.



TORI AMOS: STRANGE LITTLE GIRLS (Atlantic) Cover versions - sorry, reinterpretations - of 12 songs by men, from The Velvet Underground's New Age to Joe Jackson's Real Men, taking in Eminem's '97 Bonnie & Clyde, Neil Young's Heart Of Gold and even Slayer's Raining Blood. The story is this: "Let's see if these man songs change if a woman sings them." Listen, it's an angle and we all need an angle, but I can't see the point. The song's the song. The problem is the problem with all covers projects. If you liked the original, you can't help but feel: why mess with it? And if you hate the original (say, 10cc's I'm Not In Love), you're still going to hate the song. Still, Amos's versions are creative and inventive and, concept aside, it's beguiling enough.
