That reunion, or Elizabeth releasing anything anytime soon looks less likely as the years drift by.
So what does the frustrated fan of that most glorious band do?
Might I suggest you get yourself a copy of this beautiful album.

Seeming to carry on from where the Cocteaus stopped, this just puts a smile back on the face of any CT addict.
But surely there could only ever be 1 Elizabeth Fraser?
Well it's taken 17 years, but Simon Raymonde has found or possibly cloned a new one.

Not satisfied with setting up the glorious Bella Union label, Simon has returned to making music again.
It's a convoluted tale as to how this came to be, but it'd been worth the wait.
Even if you don't own a record player, get the Vaughan Oliver designed vinyl copy.
2 slabs of vinyl, 1 black, 1 White, with 2 cd's it's beautiful.
Then start up the music.

I guarantee a smile on your face.
And if you never ever fell out of love with Liz, Robin & Simon...
a tear in your eye.

Excellent album, lovely vocals, lovely tunes. Quality package with a double LP. The extra disc of remixes are well worth the investment.

Format: Audio CD
Ever since 1997 and the formal split of the Cocteau Twins there has been a rather large hole in music that has needed filling. They are sorely missed and the re-emergence of Simon Raymonde pairing up with American singer Stephanie Dosen in this new band "Snowbird" is about the next best thing that could be hoped for. The former Cocteau Twins bassist has of course been hard at work on his brilliant Bella Union Label the home of some of the greatest music over the past 15 years (various members of Midlake, Jonathan Wilson and Radiohead's rhythm section also appear on the album). His partnership with Dosen has been borne out of this work where in 2007 Raymonde produced her debut album where he readily admits he was "entranced by the crystalline beauty of Dosen's voice".

Raymonde also confesses that he would find it odd if this album "didn't remind people of the Cocteau Twins". Throw in a splash of This Mortal Coil and the circle is squared. Nowhere is this more pronounced on the lovely "All Wishes are Ghosts" where all that is missing is Liz Frazier. But let us not overplay this hand. "Snowbird" is album primarily about mood, ambience and very elegant dreamy pop music which stands in own right with some songs that should be freely available on the national curriculum. The widely trailed "Porcelain" harks back to the wintry feel of Kate Bush's "50 Words for Snow" and is a sumptuous ghostly piano ballad with Dosen's vocal pitch perfect. Sometimes the sheer loveliness of the album is its biggest problem and it veers closely towards the road marked "whimsy" with "We Carry White Mice" the worse culprit. The balance is addressed however with the splendid pounding synth opener "I Have Heard the Owl Call My Name" a piece of dainty pure pop bliss.

It's the Cocteau Twins reborn!

Personally speaking, I always thought that they were a bit of an acquired taste. I mean, what they did was unique and distinctive, but it also either resonated with you or went completely over your head. All the critics foaming at the mouth and consulting their thesauruses didn't help either - it made you feel like a bit of a philistine if you didn't agree.

I didn't like their early work at all, but thought they got better, particularly from "Heaven Or Las Vegas" onwards. I mention all this as, to my undevoted ears, this album very much sounds like a continuation of their later work if they'd carried on. But it's merely okay, probably not as spangly or ethereal as CT and maybe a bit lumpen and plodding in places. "All Wishes Are Ghosts" instantly stands out by a mile in the way it builds and takes off.

What is slightly alarming is how much Stephanie sounds like Liz Fraser. I have Stephanie's two solo albums prior to this release and her voice is much more personal and singular to her; here she mostly sings in the upper register and sounds uncannily like Liz. I don't know whether it was her decision or Simon's to do this. Maybe anyone who works with Simon automatically goes through some sort of voice wizardry and instantly sounds like Liz Fraser. Shame he didn't work with Barry White!

Anyhow, I'm giving four stars mostly for the second remix disc. I suspect that many will only ever listen to it once and never play it again, but it really is an absolute treat. It mainly consists of heavy dub excursions or beatless ambient soundscapes with snatches or fragments of vocals looped and endlessly repeated, which is right up my musical street.

This is truly an album of beautiful songs beautifully recorded (I can't say so much for the re-mix disc that comes with it I'm afraid) and would be a worthy addition to any collection of 'dream pop'
Owww! rats! I've already fallen into the trap of categorizing it. I worry that this is an album that is going to be judged on all sorts of levels - due to it's members lineage - rather than on it's own merits.
But just enjoy it for what it is. A perfect soundtrack to a sunny afternoon. An antidote to life's stresses. a simple pleasure.
Personal favourite ; I heard the owl call my name.
More please Simon and Sophie.
