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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.8/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Kate Bush definitely comes to mind when trying to draw a comparison (especially on China), but there's also a distinct alt rock attitude throughout.

Magnific album. From the first listen, I have feel in love with Tori's voice. I'm definitively going to listen to the rest of her discography.

I usually find it hard to relate with a female singer/songwriter, but her simple and direct approach is quite effective.

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.
