A bit of a dissapointment,
By A Customer
This review is from: Milk and Kisses (Audio CD)
I have only recently discovered the Cocteau Twins, and my first CDs were Heaven or Las Vegas (fantastic), Blue Bell Knoll (almost as good) and this one - Milk & Kisses, which I bought on the basis that reviews here said it was a return to form after a spell of blandness.
I cannot agree with that assessment - I think this album is 'so-so' - with three really good tracks (Ups, Calfskin Smack and Tishbite), and the rest are really rather average. The strange one for me is Serpentskirt, which sems to be raved about here and on the Cocteau Twins website - while I can't really see what the fuss is about.
However, as things go these days, 3 really good songs on a CD isn't bad, and they are worth having. But it was a bit of a let-down after the pure perfection of HOLV or BBK.
