    Judging from the Primavera Sound videos I've seen, the sound wasn't great at that show (or at least the recordings), so it's kind of hard for those of us who weren't there to judge the actual vocal performances.

    I was thinking that Tori's vocal abilities seem often overlooked or overshadowed by her piano playing skills. I mean, it must be incredibly hard to sing challenging songs, with no back-up, night after night after night, while playing a couple of pianos at the same time, almost 25 years after your big break. It must be even harder when so many of your fans have listened to countless bootlegs and know all the best versions of each song and want you to deliver the same thing, even though it may have been a one-off for you.

    I don't know about Barcelona, but in Finland she sounded amazing. I brought my mom (it's become our thing, third show she's been to) and the vocals was the first thing she mentioned after the show.

    I think her vocals in Barcelona were good, overall. Definitely nowhere near the nasally, babyvoice depths of the Fori era. The sound was fine too, at least close to the stage where there wasn't a lot of interference from other stages and the piano didn't sound MIDI-tinny or whatever. It was those shitty arrangements and loops where she lost the plot, IMO. She went from time-has-stopped thrilling to what-should-i-eat-after-this boring in approximately the time it took to switch from Bose to Yamaha.

    In my opinion, this stupid synth ruins everything. I d pay €1.000 for a ticket to a concert where she only played piano.

    Wouldn't it be great if she could tour with a dj such as Leila Arab? (a girl can dream ) She was amazing onstage with Bjork. It would be soooo much better than the cheap loops.

    Why not just come out and stiffly groove to the PW remix if that's what you think will please the crowd?

    *Suddenly remembered she did an entire tour where PW remix played every night while she did a costume change into "Tori"...

    I did notice during the performance of Oysters from Denmark she pointed at the synth rather obviously during the "Not every girl is popular" part.
