Ideal for the Cocteau Twins virgin,
This review is from: Lullabies To Violaine, Volume 1 (Audio CD)
I have beeen in love with the Cocteau twins every since the album Garlands when I first heard them on the on the GREAT JOHN PEEL show late at night. This double CD is the first volume of a 4 disc set which is a must have for all C.Twins fans old and new.
This is the first volume which is taken from their early years on 4AD records which is very raw, but as you listen through the disc you can hear them evolve from a talented punkish band with Tracks like Feather-Oar-blades, Peppermint Pig and Sugar Hiccup and into a more accomplished band with tracks like Pearly-dewdrops drops, Pepper-tree and the amazing track Aikea-guinea, and this is where there song writing really started to shine and for me very brightly. Disc two of this 2 disc set is alot better and that is where you will find the Cocteau Twins sound. So if you are new to the C'Twins then please dont give up half way through the first disc, or you could be missing out, sorry will be missing out on a very rare musical experience.
If you are still not sure then take a look on You Tube. OH nearly forgot Volume 2 is even better.
