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.

Tori Amos, Night Of Hunters Album Review


Someone once said........

'If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.'

Tori's appetite shows little signs of waning but her desire to play on seems to have been unnecessarily constrained of late. Not by her inability to convey the mysteries and complexities of love, she is still a supremely gifted songwriter, but by her seemingly increasing desire to place undue pressure upon herself. Tori Amos remains a fabulously talented, unique and inspirational artist who has composed some fantastic songs over the last twenty or so years. She can be brutally frank and open, as confusing as quantum physics and have the poetic nuance of the Romantics all in the same song. She can write pop, dance, country, folk and rock. She can do what she puts her mind to, and usually with stunning results. She has the talent, that is in little dispute. Why she feels the need to manipulate, suffocate or restrict her work does however frustrate me somewhat especially when you compare it to her previous, less stifled work. You can't play a violin quite so well with one arm tied behind your back, you can't take a penalty as well with your legs tied together and you can't be expected to produce magnificent material if you tie yourself to a song cycle that traces back through four hundred years of previously composed music. She's right in thinking 'This is not a small task'. Yes it may produce some interesting results, throw up some curiosities and enhance or alter some future work but, as unfortunately turns out to be true, it's unlikely to be her best work, however polished, professional and heartfelt it maybe.
