A large litter of devout fans

For the better part of two decades it appeared the singer-songwriter artist was an endangered species. One thing the 90's brought back to the scene was a return of smart lyrics coupled with innovative music. One of the greatest lyricists in the history of music comes in at number 8.

I welcome...

Tori Amos

...to the top ten important musical artists who put out their first album on or after 1990.

She paved the way for Coldplay, Keane and Ben Folds by rolling her piano to the forefront of her music. A quirky artist known for odd opinions and the ability to write songs about anything in the human experience. Her music has a subtle electric energy with melodies that come unexpected but stick to you ribs and fill.

She was born in North Carolina but was raised in Baltimore, MD. After a slow start riddled with bouts with labels, she eventually gave birth to a large litter of devout fans. Her live performances infected more and more every year. Nobody thinks Tori is just "ok". You either love or hate her which can only mean she is innovative and refuses to play it safe.

Tori is the first female to debut on this list but will she be the last? Who will be number 7? Who will still be cut? There are seven spots left but still eight on the remaining list.

Stay tuned.....!

The List

8) Tori Amos
9) Eminem
10) Pantera

Still awaiting a rank (and one will not make it)

Ani Difranco
Dave Mathews
Rage Against the Machine
Smashing Pumpkins
