Deciding to scale back the overly pretty sound on Blue Bell Knoll while experimenting with more accessibility -- -- the Twins ended up creating their best album since Treasure.

You know what?
If you can make something sound epic yet so emotionally personal,
You can take my money.
Is this album perfect? No. But it is one of the most beautiful things I've listened to.
Letting this album play over and over again while walking around your neighborhead at 12am is something otherworldly and I highly advise it. Cocteau Twins provide some of the most lush and thought provoking dream pop, and yes I still have no idea what Elizabeth is saying, and to be honest I'd rather not know just to keep my mind running.
so i was trying to think of something to say, but i really have no words to describe this album. its absolutely breathtaking.
fav tracks: heaven or las vegas, wolf in the breast, frou-frou foxes in midsummer fires
Best of 1990
One of few albums that I gave 100 points to from the first listening.
Elizabeth Fraser’s voice takes me everytime to heaven.
A beautiful album and classic when it comes to Dream Pop. Although it didn’t make an huge impression on me now , I feel that over time I may like it much much more.
