The Twins' dynamic songwriting here lilted with minor keys and plaintive—just a bit more appreciable—lyricism: a natural comedown to Heaven or Las Vegas' high. Four-Calendar Café's sublimity is a thing that undoes itself: the sublime no longer captured from a vantage of security, but as being-implicated in a larger struggle for endurance and survival in the face of decay and fragmentation.
The Cocteaus left 4AD, Fraser and Guthrie separated and, within such a turmoil, they gathered all the courage that was left and released their most pop-friendly album, wishing that their sonic dreams, more comprehensible than ever, will be interpreted by a larger audience.
Elizabeth Fraser’s wisest lyrics; She comes off not just as the voice of god, but also the conscious of humanity.
Omg omg
Very enjoyable album. Cocteau Twins indulge in a silent storm after their masterpiece ''Heaven Or Las Vegas''.
