    Also, I like her nasally vocals. I LOVED her tour looks in 2005

    I would go so far as to say it's quintessential.

    Welcome to England came on shuffle today and it reminded me that I love this song.

    And also the video, yes, there I said it.
    I will be safe in my frame.

    I’ve been reliving the Aats era for the last few days. Live vids and the album itself. It’s been okay.

    Funny, looking at this page today. Last night I was drunk at my neighbours and I blared Floating City and Welcome to England at him. Floating City is in my top ten of all time Tori songs, and Welcome to England actually resonates a lot for me being someone who moved to America for a partner.

    This version of Welcome to England is gorgeous and surprisingly strong.

    If someone said it was a boot from the 2017 concerts, I'd believe them.

    For anything it lacks, WtE has a great melody. Just humming .. it's a pretty song.

    I agree, WTE has a lovely melody and is well produced.

    I just can't with those lyrics. And the weird-ass pronunciation. "Do a daaayyyyynnncceee, for mmmeeeyyyyy, baybe it is layte, st-all you pooeerrr meeeeeyyy". Urgh.

    And that "bring your own sun, just enough for everyone" lyric makes me cringe so hard, my face has a fold down the middle of it. To say she'd lived in England for almost 20 years at that point, it's absolutely horrific. It's so a cliche image of England that I don't understand how anybody who is English or has lived here for such a long time can even think that.

    The lyrics are the worst part of AATS for me. I just find all of them really lifeless and in some places, desperate. Musically it's very interesting and well produced, but I never EVER revisit it.

    Are you trying to say that "impeccable peccadillo" isn't pure poetry?
