Welcome to mystery ♥
A fantastic collection of songs for fans, but shows feelings that you don't get from Alice's innocently curious personality. I love the slightly more gothic Alice that shows in this series of songs, and there are few I have a problem with. Follow me Down is a song that I have studied very intently whilst I listened, and my conclusion is that how many times you listen to it depends on how much you like. For example: First time- This is upbeat •v• Second time- am beginning to doubt this...•_• Third Time- This guy's voice is annoying •/• Fourth time- I don't like this •^• You know what I mean? Probably not.
I also have a few problems with 'Tea Party': even though I quite like this song, but the themes are a little dodgy- try and nibble my biscuits? I mean, that has two meanings but the sexual one is way too obvious to be on a children's album. She doesn't really swear, but comes close to it with 'fother mucka' the music stops, and you can hear her perfectly, just as she says it. This would be unacceptable, apart from the fact that it is a decent song, and a more clean one, compared to most songs we have now-a-days (I sound like an old lady all of a sudden...)
There are plenty of songs I love, though. Alice by Avril is my personal favourite. No swearing, no sexual themes, just a good song for a person of any age. I also love Welcome to mystery and the Technicolor phase. I suggest you try these out, as these are the high points of the whole album. Of course, the album is not everybody's cup of tea (yes, sorry for the pun,) due to the emotional state of songs and mild sexual themes. Thanks for reading my review,
