A review of Strange Little Girls appeared in the October 2001 issue of Q Magazine in the U.K. Thanks to Lucy who sent it to me.

Tori Amos
Strange Little Girls

Ms Amos sings Neil Young, Depeche Mode, Eminem and Slayer. And why not?

In which Tori Amos performs 12 songs written by men as if they were being sung by the women who suggested she do them. Confused? Take a ticket and join the queue. The singer strips back Eminem's '97 Bonnie & Clyde to accentuate its chilling, uxorcidal unpleasantness, tackles The Boomtown Rats' I Don't Like Mondays in the style of worldweary nightclub singer and transforms Neil Young's Heart of Gold into a song that doesn't sound much like Heart of Gold at all. Pick of the bunch, though, is undoubtedly the Bjorkish revamp of Slayer's Raining Blood if only because it's enjoyable to imagine how quite appalled the band's fans will be when they hear it.

3 out of 5 stars (Meaning "Good. Not For Everyone, but fine within its field."
