What drew me in as a Tori Amos fan in 1993 with "Little Earthquakes" was the hauntingly beautiful, hauntingly real lyrics. That is what kept me running off to get her CD's at midnight on release days and taking breaks at just the right time at work so I could get the best seats to concerts at [...]. This book was precisely what I wanted, which simply was a place to gather all her lyrics in one convenient spot. The gorgeous, breathtaking illustrations are a crazy, wonderful extra. The best thing ...more

This book was gifted to me by someone I hardly really know, he came across it packing to move and knows probably one thing about me: I love Tori's music to death and he gave it to me, on a very low day, no less. Its a beautiful book that has nearly every tori song up to 1999(after To Venus And Back was released). I find it most helpful when listening to her B-sides or bootlegs as there are alot of her obscure and lesser known recordings in here, like Daisy Dead Petals, my head, Sister Ja ...more

Tori Amos is older than most people of my generation would care to listen to. She actually published this while i was still quite young, buut I grew up listening to my mom sing her songs and this book has the lyrics to all the ones I was too young to understand. Now that I am older, reading what was really being said for all those years, I can't put it down. My annotations even reference pages in a separate notebook for how much of an impact each one leaves.

This book contains the beautiful lyrics of Tori Amos' earlier music until Choirgirl Hotel. The artwork inside of the book that accompanies some of the lyrics is so beautiful that it makes me want to begin drawing again. Together, the words and the visuals are incredibly complementary.

This book is a nice collector's item for Tori fans who would like to have a nice book of Tori's song lyrics up through 2001, accompanied by beautiful and creative illustrations. Very nice and useful as a reference, too.
