In college (I went to music school for musical theatre), I even performed a Tori Amos set for Parent's Weekend with a wonderful pianist. I love her first two albums the best, so I jumped at the chance to review the rerelease Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink remastered! They are amazing. Crisp, clear sound and the same amazing lyrics and beautiful piano driven songs you can expect from Tori.
Once I received copies for myself, they went straight into the car (one of the only places I still have a cd player!) and I played them for Ana. I explained that Tori is one of my favorite singer/songwriters and she was quiet and thoughtful as she listened. I think she likes her too! A lot of Tori's lyrics are a bit sophisticated for a 4 year old's ear, but I think as she grows up I will be able to pass on my love of Tori to my sweet girl!
