Sublime love it,also thought four calendar cafe should have been released together as a double album,I know they're about 4/5 yrs apart not sure,but both belong with each other as some of the most other worldly beautiful lost in space music your likely to hear,swirling Effect driven guitar over sublime beats,then Liz Frazers beautiful haunting voice,at her most comprehensible ever,wow !! But it still doesn't make sense,but it does it = beauty,just brilliant,also check out Four calendar Cafe,you won't be dissapointed,they are companion pieces and it's the last album (sadly)that they've released ❤️

The best cocteau album.. Time hasn't aged this wonderful collection over the years..the re_master has come in for criticism... It's not up to Bob ludwig standards, but what is....slight improvement over the original...is it worth the extra if you already own the original...probably not.

I love this album, from the opening notes of Cherry-Coloured Funk and I am hooked. There isn't a weak track on here. All the vocal melodies are extremely strong and the arrangements are tight. HOLV is perfect as it is! Buy it!

I bought this album years and years ago...and then my sister nicked it. And I forgot about it.

But then Amazon had it going in their sale for less than £5.00 so I thought 'why not'?

What a classic album. I'm sat here, listening to it now. It just hasn't aged at all.

A rare thing with the Cocteau's, just about understandable lyrics, but still with that ethereal winsomeness that is such a trade-mark of all their albums.

O.k., I suppose you could say that this is the most 'commercial' Cocteau album. Who cares? It's got some beautiful tunes, some gorgeous productions, some classic songs.

From the promising, slightly down-tempo 'Cherry-Coloured Funk', the album moves into the lilting, almost circular 'Pitch the Baby'. After dreaming off, we wake up to 'Iceblink Luck', with that lovely bell-like guitar and melodious bass and glorious chorus. Then, suddenly, 'Fifty-Fifty Clowns', that insistent beat, smooth keyboard chords stepping through up to a climax, wilting vocals behind a wailing guitar, but so smooth and mellifluous.

Then we have the almost rousing chant-like `Heaven or Las Vegas'. No idea what she's singing about, don't really care, but it's something about being in either Heaven or Las Vegas. That unmistakable Cocteau bass and guitar, loads of reverb softening the sound to the typical sonic dreamscape.

Oh, and then `I Wear Your Ring'. This album just keeps getting better. That lovely, stepping up, almost gasping vocal harmony. `Fotzepolitic', electric twelve string guitars or something, almost an electronic acoustic strumming wall of sound. `Wolf in the Breast', again, a lovely soft melody, with a gently howling guitar, but a harmony that just keeps reminding me, somehow, of late Beach Boys.

Ah... My entire life seemed to revolve around this album back in 1990/91. It was my first taste of the Cocteaus and remains my favourite album. It's only 37 minutes long but by the time track 10 fades out you'll swear you've been listening to it for hours, such is the emotional sweep that pervades it and carries the listener along. For me, the standout tracks were Cherry Coloured Funk, Fifty Fifty Clown, Pitch the baby, Heaven or Las Vegas and Road River & Rail. However, after playing those ones to death I 'rediscovered' the other five songs and played them to death too. Ten years later this album remains one of my top two albums of all time (the other being Hats by the Blue Nile). Heaven or Las Vegas was the Cocteau Twins at their finest, though theit next album, Four Calendar Cafe, was also sublime, though it marked the beginning of the end. Check out the predecessor Blue Bell Knoll too: the Coc's first foray into keyboard/sequencer dominated sounds and away from the murky guitar and echoes of their past. And if you're REALLY lucky you'll track down the CD single of Iceblink Luck, the single from Heaven or Las Vegas, which features two unreleased tracks on the 'b' side, both of which are gorgeous (and it's quite beyond me why they were left off the album.) Heaven or Las Vegas? Well it sure ain't Las Vegas.
