Not a Cocteau twins release
Should be under individual names

Probably my favorite Cocteau record. I just seem to get lost in the music and I never know what to play after!

I wasn’t very impressed with this when I bought it when it first came out and it’s sat in my collection having only been played a few times…
I felt both parties didn’t really play to their strengths and as a result the music was a little diminished.
I need to re listen.

YX 7426 This is a gem and sounds beautiful. Ultrasonically clean it. EDIT: Now that I've heard the Canadian Vertigo pressing, I have to say it's probably even better sounding than the Japanese pressing. Both are good. All the Vertigo CTs releases sound amazing: HoH, Treasure + Aikea-Guinea, Tiny D/EiaSB, Victorialand, and BBK. So do the Vertigo It'll End in Tears, Filigree & Shadow, Lonely Is an Eyesore, and a few DCD releases also (the 2nd thru 4th).

Regarding the comments about "translucent vinyl" - that is interesting. It sounds as though it could be a Quiex II pressing. The 1986 pressing date would coincide with that. Quiex is not recycled vinyl, creates a quieter pressing, is often slightly transparent - Google it.

There were some Joy Division albums pressed on Quiex, also Robert Palmer, Peter Gabriel, some "promotion only" albums (such as Cure's DIsintegration - highly collectable . . . .).

I have to say, despite being into ambient music as well as an ardent Cocteau Twins fan, I find Harold Budd's contribution pretty ordinary. Whenever I listen to it I feel that our Scottish heroes are being restricted by Budd's bland harmonies....and also, I want more Liz Frazer!! (but then, don't we always?).

I'd rather play a full-on Cocteau Twins album.

My copy is translucent. Are all of the US copies this way or no?

Mine has an X behind both matrix numbers. Is that just variation 2 or am I wrong?

I have the original copy. This needs a remaster asap!
