A well-remembered set from The Cocteau Twins' sublime 80s run on the 4AD label – a set that was one of the duo's first
American titles, culled together from some of their early singles and import EP releases! The song choice
s are wonderful – some of the most focused, expressive cuts from the first
few Cocteau years – magical moments that have the wordless vocals of Liz Frazier carving out these really beautiful melodies – while lush keyboards and splashy rhythms fill in the background with that unique 4AD style of production. There's still never been anything like the group at this point over all the years that have past – and the album's filled with gems that include "Wax & Wane", "Pearly Dewdrop Drops", "From The Flagstones", "Lorelei", "Aikea Guinea", "Pepper Tree", and "Musette & Drums".
