11 Amazing Albums By Female Artists The 90s Brought Us

The 90s is by far one of our favourite decades for music, not only because of its rich and diverse span of genres, but also because of the incredible female talent that came out of that time. Here are just a few of the greatest women-led albums of this extraordinary era.

1. Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes (1992)

This American redhead's debut album was actually a second attempt which she worked on with her then boyfriend Eric Rosse following the break-up of her band Y Kant Tori Read. It became a tour de force, breaking pop conventions with its acoustic piano and Tori's unusual vocal style, and lyrics that range from the funny to the surreal. It's a sublime commentary on female sexuality and it hasn't aged a day.

Skunk Anansie - I Hope you Get To Meet Your Hero


Britrockers Skunk Anansie unveil the romantically bizarre video for their new single 'I Hope You Get To Meet Your Hero' which is set for release on November 5th 2012 through 100% Records and Boogooyamma. It serves as the second track taken from their sixth studio album 'Black Traffic' which came out in September.

The video features two mysterious figures robed from head to toe in black with vocalist Skin (real name Deborah Dyer) singing against a plain backdrop. The robed figures dramatically dance together before splitting into separate ballet-type leaps as the song's crescendo builds to a climax. The song is romantic ballad with a low, rumbling bass line and even a classical feel with its violin led introduction. Combined with Skin's raspy, high-pitched vocals it makes for a hauntingly hard-hitting track with a catchy tune and exciting build up.

Given that they've really only just got back on to the scene since their eight year long hiatus, it looks like they are re-securing quite a name for themselves. 'We got back together because we have a strong chemistry', said Skin. 'We're very proud of our past work, but what drives us is the future.' Skunk Anansie are preparing for an extensive European tour next month (November 2012), hitting the UK on December 1st for a show at London's Brixton Academy.
