5.0 out of 5 stars COCTEAU TWINS FOREVER AND EVER, 8 Mar 2001
This review is from: Milk and Kisses (Audio CD)
Too many false statements above: this is no way related to New age, this CD does not sound like early Cocteau era at all, Four calendar cafe was no mainstream bid, ... These critics must have been overdosing with Pulp or rehabbing inside the Oasis for a while I guess. Milk and kisses is another superb Cocteau Twins CD within their own unique direction, but at least for me it was suspiciously too similar to their previous Four calendar cafe. They probably released the very impressive accoustic and techno-ambient EPs right before this release so that we could not notice the continuity that much. Twinlights showed us a Liz more close to Nina Simone as ever, the Half gifts version ends very much like I get a long without you very well by heavenly black voice; also the Violaine remix by Mark Clifford on Otherness is a milestone in Cocteau twins discography, the redoing is just so amazing you just want a whole Cocteau twins CD sounding just like that. As for the Milk and kisses CD Tishbite in parts reminds me of Bluebird, Treasure hiding reminds me too much of Pur... There are precious moments though, Serpenskirt, Ups or Seekers who are lovers are among the best and most underrated pop songs of the nineties for sure. Even if I think Four calendar cafe is a more accomplished and a really move forward work, this is by far superior to the average pop CD of last century, so five hundred stars just for that.
