3 stars I've got to say, though her career would later take a different tangent, Tori Amos' debut solo album Little Earthquakes shows a great deal of influence from Kate Bush, from the instrumental backing to Tori's vocal delivery. That isn't necessarily such a bad thing - Bush fans will find this very listen able - but aside from Me and a Gun, which is far more sparse and stripped-down a song than any Kate had attempted up to this point, there isn't much to distinguish Tori from Kate aside from a difference in presentation; Kate is classic rock with a touch of prog, concept albums and cultural references, Tori is indie rock, coffee shops and agonising rape survivor stories. In other words, Little Earthquakes takes the Kate Bush approach and recontextualises it, which I guess is innovative enough not to be a rip-off.
Warthur | 3/5 |
