Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

Although I prefer the fuller sound and more cryptic lyrics of the next two albums, it's hard to deny how powerful the girl-and-a-piano confessional approach is. This is an impressive debut.

Favorite tracks: Crucify, Precious Things, Little Earthquakes

Little earthquakes, is one of the most spectacular and stunning albums ever. A, blue, for the nineties, every song is a masterpiece. Amos has no qualms about dealing with extremely dark subjects including domestic abuse in, silent all these years, and off course her own terrible rape ordeal in, me and a gun. There's no weak tracks here but some of my personal favourites are, winter, China, crucify, tear in your hand, and the epic title track. A beautiful and courageous record destined to be a classic. Superb.

I was like 8 years old when I heard Silent All These Years for the first time and it really blew my mind. The story was so heartbreaking. Still one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

If you look at my collection, you would mostly find a lot of Prog Rock albums. Been looking for some great albums from good female vocalists and stumbled upon on Kate Bush's Hounds of Love which eventually led me to Tori Amos' Little Earthquake.

WOW! Since I discovered this album yesterday morning, I have been obsessively listened to it 4 times in 24hrs. I even bought the vinyl yesterday afternoon. It is understandable why people compare her with Kate Bush. They are both super talented and their vocal delivery paved the way for a lot of female singers today including Adele.

This album is pretty, sad and heart-felt. There's not a single bad song on this album. It's more than 20 years old but doesn't sound dated a single bit. Amazing album!!!

This album simply presents a haunting image of a woman trying to come to terms with herself and her past challenges.

Female singer songwriters seem to be under appreciated on this site. This album deserves to be in the top 100. This is by far her best work with her best songwriting, lyrics, and piano playing. The whole album flows beautifully. Highlights being Winter, Mother, and Girl
