5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden treasures, 1 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a big fan of Cocteau Twins. Always loved their music. The only disappointment I ever had with them was the last album Milk and Kisses which, to me, didn't develop anything in their music nor really took them back to their roots (even though that's what the critics said it did). It was average in their standards. That's why I never bothered with the singles. Guess what? It feels great to be proven wrong about them. But what treasures this compilation reveals! It's a mesmerising reminder of the fact that Cocteau's were a band of singles and ep's and that one should never underestimate their b-sides! The songs are playful, sometimes very simple, raw and then again sophisticated symphonies of sound. Liz's singing in Twinlights is cuttingly sincere and yet in Tishbite and Violane she can get as adventurous as ever, singing in full range from a deep, mature voice to the heights of a bird. It's long time since I've played one cd over and over again for weeks! Extremely sensuous music. Highly recommended. Makes a great Christmas present for a fan :-)
