Before there was a Tori Amos, there was a Y Kant Tori Read. To me, this album illustrates why it's important to remember things like that. Not every superb artist had a superb first album. James' first album is actually much better than Tori's was (which, in turn, was not quite as bad as many people think); but she still has some distance to go before she reaches the A-list.
