Grab all them mid period 12"s from Spangle Maker through Love's Easy Tears for maximum loveliness. Their best run, better than the albums for me, all sound great and look great to boot.

Unfortunately, I discovered the Cocteau Twins late, but not a day goes by that I feel like listening to Liz, unfortunately many people don't know the CTs, and I'm sorry for them. They are pure magic. Liz makes you dream, and music seems to get married with the best female voice. When you hear them for the first time, you immediately fall in love with them, and the lyrics seem to be made on purpose, to let you enter another dimension. They become a drug that you cannot get rid of, if they are one of the bands favored by Robert Smith, who understands music, and not a little, it makes me more and more sure that I am a marvel. I'm a fan of Cure, I think listening to both of them, in a playlist where there are only Cure and CT is a unique, magical experience. Someone did badly, I had to be born at least 7 years before, and not to bomb Metal, but to know all these bands in their best years. Too bad, but for about twenty abundant years, I discovered the 4AD, and I'm enjoying the various sounds of those years, discovering groups that excite me in hearing them and the CTs are the best, but the others are no less, Ivo is a genius who put under his label, the biggest bands, that music has ever produced

A huge influence on me, growing up as a teenager throughout the mid 80's, and I suppose, up until now. I thank God for John Peel for introducing them to me during his shows. Liz has a voice that'll die with me, and send me off This Mortal Coil. Pun definitely intended

What gets my goat is people interpreting Cocteau twins lyrics into English. Why ruin it? Some of them are atrocious!!! They're not supposed to be interpreted!!!

Liz Fraser gets a lot of credit, but what really makes the Cocteau Twins sound is that dreamy guitar of Robin Guthrie.

First band I ever went to see in early 80's... and the first time I left N. Ireland. Seeing them live in the Sadler's Wells in London was
literally like nothing I'd seen before or since for that matter. Loved them (and Liz.!) since and there's rarely a week that goes by
that I don't play something of theirs...

I never really thought about it until I saw this listing - they really didn't put out that many albums - most were EP's.

I have been a fan of the Cocteaus since first hearing their ethereal otherworldly music in the early 80's and their music has lived with me ever since. No other band has come close to being a true original in the way the Cocteau Twins did, with a sound and style that came from nowhere and was unique to them. Sadly no longer with us but the music will live on and hopefully future generations will discover and fall in love with them and come to recognise that Elizabeth Fraser was possibly the greatest voice ever committed to vinyl.
