Product Description & Reviews

Featuring the ethereal vocals of Elizabeth Fraser, along with the progressive musicianship of multi-instrumentalist Robin Guthrie and bassist Simon Raymonde, Scotland's Cocteau Twins were one of the more prolific electro-pop ensembles to emerge during the 1980's. Robin Guthrie's shimmering guitar and keyboard sound is carefully exaggerated by the use of various studio accoutrement, particularly tape loops and drum machines. Elizabeth Fraser's shimmering voice is used to great effect on the title cut and other surreal compositions like "A Kissed Out Red Floatboat" and "For Phoebe's Still A Baby." Moderately enjoyable but only 35 minutes long, this is not a definitive recording by the Cocteau Twins. Anticipating the success of goth-pop peers Dead Can Dance, the band is still in decent form on Blue Bell Knoll. --Mitch Myers
