Product Description

Amazon.ca

Aimee Mann's resurgence as a solo artist with the Magnolia soundtrack returned scrutiny to her early work with Boston's 'Til Tuesday. There are moments on the group's second album ("On Sunday," "David Denies," "No One Is Watching You Now") that contain the sense of romance and loss that fuel her solo work. However, the period production is not always in sympathy with the sentiments. Cavernous echo and other glossy, mid-'80s touches nearly overwhelm the songs. It's a testament to Mann's skills that some songs shine through. Welcome Home will ultimately prove pleasing to those who came of age in the '80s, as well as Mann completists. --Rob O'Connor

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Albumn Oct. 18 2007
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
This was Til Tuesday's second albumn and it was at the very least an absolute masterpeace. Aimee Mann has been for many years one of America's most tallented song writers and it is clearly evedent in beautifully writen albumn. From beggining to end each and every song was clearly a thought out, composed and created with meticulous precision, much like the rest of Til Tuesdays small but ingenious catalog.
Among the tracks is what I consider one of the most amazing songs ever written "Coming Up Close" is perhaps one of the most beautiful songs ever composed by any artist and it a shame more people are not aware of it. "On Sunday" is also a fantastic song which truely dislpays Aimee Manns amazing vocal talents which are often over looked. "What About Love" and "David Denies" would also have charted well and perhaps gone to number one as they are also perfect songs, if only the band had received proper support from their record company. Til Tuesday a true tradgedy of the recording industry, a band that never received thier due credit. In a age where talentless cookie cutter pop seems to be the order of the day, it's that much more disheartening that a band like this was alowed to fall through the cracks. This Albumn is must have for any music fan.

Til Tuesday, the former band of the now legendary singer-songwriter Aimee Mann, will forever be remembered for their unique debut single ("Voices Carry", perhaps one of the most striking songs of the 80s).However, there was much more to this band than meets the eye. As demonstrated on their sadly overlooked sophomore album "Welcome Home", this band was powered by a unique artist (Aimee Mann) backed by solid musicians that seemed willing to take chances. It would have been easy to try to come up with a sequel to "Voices Carry", but what we got instead was an album filled with personal songs and musical settings that were totally untypical of the era in which the album was released. The moment you'll hear the second song on the album (the brilliant masterpiece "Coming Up Close", one of Mann's finest compositions ever), you will know how special this album is. This was the first pop song of the 80s to heavily feature acoustic guitars, a few years before Indigo Girls, Suzanne Vega or Melissa Etheridge became millionaires with their good old six strings. And the rest of the album is just as good : "Have mercy" and "No-one is watching you now" are heartbreaking tales with a haunting melody and an achingly expressive vocal, "On Sunday" is a smouldering uptempo number that slowly builds up to an intense finale, "Will she just fall down" is reminiscent of the Beatles, and songs like "Angels never call" and "David denies" add layers after layers of floating notes until it all becomes an aural reverie.
Don't look for a weak spot on this album, for you won't find one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superlative!! Jan. 8 2004
By Altair
Format:Audio CD
This is truly one of the best albums of all time. Of course, this is probably because Aimee Mann is one of the greatest songwriters and vocalists of all time -- a true musical genius. I've been listening to this album since around 1987, and never get tired of it. Don't even think that the quality goes down on the B side -- it's first class all the way!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Aimee Mann Starting To Climb The Mountain Feb. 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
A few years ago, I became smitten with the music of Aimee Mann as a solo artist. From her very first album, "Whatever", she wrote brilliant, provocative songs with lovely melodies and harmonies coming from every angle. This surprised me at first, because the only other Aimee Mann related album that I had at that point was 'til Tuesday's debut album "Voices Carry" which I had bought for the title track alone, and which, in my opinion was one booooring album.
As it turned out, my curiosity about more Aimee Mann music outweighed my reticence about 'til Tuesday, and I bought this sophomore effort from the band. And while the quality of this album did not come close to that shown by Aimee Mann as a solo artist, it was a definite improvement over 'til Tuesday's debut.
My favorite songs on this album are the beautiful and poignant, "David Denies" and "Have Mercy" which show the thoughtful lyrics and pretty harmonies which would become a hallmark of Aimee Mann music, for this listener at least. I also like the song, "Will She Just Fall Down" - it's a pretty, bouncy song with nice lyrics.
Highlights aside, I have a couple of major problems with this album...To this reviewer, at least, the rest of the songs seem kind of nondescript and lightweight. There is also a problem with the overall sound of the album...I'm usually not one to criticize the production of an album because to me, when all is said and done, it's the songs/music which make the album. However, the sound of this album is extremely muddy - I don't know if it's a lot of reverb or whatever...But this album lacks the clarity of anything that Aimee Mann would put out subsequently (including the lovely final 'til Tuesday album, "Everything's Different Now").

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically lyrical Sept. 26 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to this album for at least 12 years and it rarely leaves my CD changer. I played the cassette version until it literally would not play any more, and it was one of the first CDs I bought. A relative first introduced me to this album and of course "Coming Up Close" was the reason I bought my own copy. But I came to love each song and appreciate Aimee Mann as an exceptionally gifted songwriter. It is a great "Road Trip" album and "On Sunday" makes the perfect "Summer Song". The mix is not mainstream pop/rock. It is not a 1980's anthem, but it is one of the defining moments, for me. The lyrics have meaning, which sometimes defies what the '80's were about. The only other thing I can say is Listen to this CD! I am sure you will find Mann's unique voice as captivating as I do. It is a definite must have for one's CD library!

4.0 out of 5 stars til tuesday's second album is lonely, sad, good. Nov. 11 2001
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For viewers who want to go to the next chapter of 'til tuesday after Voices Carry, welcome back, or should I say Welcome Home?
First up, the melancholy is still there, but it's more polished.
Gone are the dirge-like wails that characterized Voices Carry. Aimee Mann's voice is stronger here, but with just as much feeling.
The two singles, "What About Love" and "Coming Up Close" are good openers. "What About Love" seemed more accessible. "Coming Up Close" shows 'til tuesday's slight dip in the waters of country. I wonder if any female country musicians have covered this tune--lyrically and thematically, it has the right feel for a country ballad.
"David Denies" and "Lover's Day" are two examples. "Lover's Day" demonstrates how high a register Aimee Mann can go one moment and then drop down very low. It's also one of the stronger songs on the album.
"Sleeping And Waking" has an opening melody that would later be utilized in "Fifty Years After The Fair" from Aimee Mann's Whatever.
"Angels Never Call" is curiously the first 'til tuesday where it is a woman being sung about instead of a man. The verse "angels never help you/because angels always fall" might as well proceed from the saying "What goes up, must come down." So, Satan is not the only fallen angel. That figures.
Best for last: "No One Is Watching You Now" is a haunting sad song (all of them are), about the emptiness afterward and why the narrator is so, so sad. To illustrate: "Something has torn me apart/oh but what do I care/about watching my heart/I know that sadness bleeds through/and my sadness for me/is now sadness for you."
The songcraft is more polished here than on Voices Carry. The theme of loneliness competes for sadness on this. Look at the lyrics and see how many times "loneliness" or "sadness" pops up.

4.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with Aimee's music... July 13 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
...with this album. I bought it when it first came out, having been entranced by the first single, "What About Love." Now, almost 15 years later, that song doesn't seem to hold up quite as well as others on the album. Yet, the CD is endlessly listenable... and a vast improvement over 'til Tuesday's first album.
Although WELCOME HOME sounds a bit dated with its heavy synth sound and glossy production, many of Aimee's greatest songs may be found here. "Coming Up Close" remains to this day my favorite song of hers. "David Denies," "Will She Just Fall Down," "Lovers' Day" and "No One Is Watching You Now" are also terrific.
All in all, an excellent effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars An 80's pop\alt classic Aug. 6 2004
By Brian W. Fullford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While going through a box of old cassettes I re-discovered this collection of songs. I had forgotten how timely and powerfull Mann's music and lyrics were. While looking for this CD on line I found a great review by David Medsker at the popmatters website and I didn't feel alone in my memory of Welcome Home.

So why write a review on a disc almost 20 years old? Medsker reminded me that there are some artists who don't get the acclaim yet still produce timeless music. This disc carried me through a transition off of a 5 year relationship that lasted from my freshman year of high school to my sophmore year of college. Every word of every lyric speaks to an emotion that I experienced during this stage. David Denies, Have Mercy, No One is Watching You Now and Coming Up Close all have a certain perspective that offers sympathy for failed love rather than simply detailing it. Aimee's vocal gift is one which elevates the words to something tangible and not just someone's story. The power of a songwriter is to make the listener feel as if the song is for everyone. I can't say that we have all been there but I would be willing to wager that if you haven't experienced it, you know someone who has and Aimee will touch that chord in you that evokes the pain and hence will make it seem as if it was your experience.

I wouldn't classify this as your typical 80's bubblegum new wave or pop. This has a more mature sound which works well with the more mature lyrics. You will get your 80's synth in songs such as Lover's Day and for some this may be a tough sell but there is enough subtle guitar work to carry you through. I can't recommend this disc enough

5.0 out of 5 stars The best pure 80s pop album in the world - ever! Nov. 29 1999
By Big Al - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I didn't know 'Til Tuesday until a friend gave me a badly recorded tape 12 years ago. I played it and played it and played it. Today I have all of their stuff on CD and I still play it. Lover's Day is one of the most powerful pieces of 80s pop I've ever heard and I think always will be one of my favourite tracks. 'Til Tuesday have succeeded in being both original and unique in the quality of their material. Compare the strength of their writing and performing ability with bands of today. Buy it - and the rest.
Everything's Different Now is 'different' but good in a slightly more mature way; perhaps without, for me, the same charisma as their second album but nevertheless, pure quality. Buy this too. Their first album I bought last. A disapointment but only in comparison to the second. And about Aimee herself? She has without doubt a fantastic, melodic, powerful and flexible voice which compliments this music like no other could. Her solo albums? To me, a disapointment. She works brilliantly in 'Til Tuesday. On her own she's good. My advice? Buy everything from this fantastic group and make your own mind up.
