I had a few of the Cocteau Twins albums on vinyl back in the early 80s and really liked them; however, I hadn't played them in a long time. I recently got chatting to someone who was also into them and decided to get some on cd. I bought Treasure, Head Over Heels and Four Calendar Cafe. Four Calendar Cafe was the only album that I hadn't previously heard. While Treasure and Head over Heels are good Four Calendar Cafe is in a differentl league! Evangeline now gets played and played and played.

Brilliant band, brilliant music. It's also good to see other bands being influenced by the Cocteau Twins unique sound - e.g. Nick McCabe of the Verve.

Throughout the 80's The Cocteau Twins were, to some, a kind of antidote to The Smiths. Much loved by John Peel fans, it seemed at times like the two were pitted against each other. The music of the Cocteaus seemed almost implied and it drifted off in the mid 80's and then the band seemed to rediscover their melodic muse. By the 90's it seemed the band wanted change and severed ties with 4AD and headed for a major label.

Listening to the fruits of that labour it seems like the commercial considerations (and fears of fans who thought the band was selling out) were justified. The world was given new artwork (which still seems uncomfortable even now) and a cleaner sound which seemed sharper, more defined. Opening single "Evangeline" being a wonderfully realised culprit. For fans of the old sound this isn't a good omen.

"Four Calendar Cafe" follows this formula pretty rigidly through the opening five tracks. Clean sounding, almost antiseptic, yet pleasant at the same time. It is a great way to discover the band, but perhaps a little to clean for those who longed for more distortion on Robin Guthrie's guitar, and a little less clarity on Liz Fraser's voice. Second single "Bluebeard", and the other three songs are pretty but don't linger in the mind too well.

Relief is found on the final tracks (what would have been side two), where the band find both melody and some semblance of the old sound. It's as if they can't quite escape what they were before. Here the band sound comfortable and the mood is beautiful.

The Cocteau Twins are a timeless group, producing unique, aspiring music that inspires me as a musician to write from my soul. With a very strong identity, the cocteau twins may sound recognisable throughout their tracks, but in relaxing to their music you come to appreciate the subtle differences in the tones of their tracks and the very light and floaty feel adds to the sensation that you are taken out of the present time and experiencing a sound that enters another dimension. This album is a very good album, particularly tracks 1, 2 and 4 in fact all of them offer something very special and as a pursuer of higher consciousness this music has, like others, helped me on this journey.
