Cocteau Twins - Victorialand





The album title referred to the part of Antarctica known as Victoria Land, after Queen Victoria (and forming the British claim to the continent, currently dormant under international treaty). As was often the case with Fraser's vocals, the lyrics are indecipherable.[3] The titles of each track were borrowed from passages on the Arctic and Antarctic in David Attenborough's The Living Planet: A Portrait of the Earth, the accompanying book to his 1984 BBC nature documentary series The Living Planet.
