    I came to this band late and really never bought in, but this is as solid a first album as any artist could hope for. Fits perfectly into the sounds of the time. Think Cure, Bauhaus, Pretenders...

      <B>Cocteau Twins</B> is not the first band that comes in mind for an electronica database, but OK, there is the ever sec hitting drummachine so that makes a good entrance ticket I guess.<BR>
      Cocteau Twins is not about electronica but is all about <B>Elisabeth Fraser</B>’s voice and, especially in the case of <B>Garlands</B>, about howling guitars creating this darkened siren song. The thing with Liz’ voice is like with Siouxsie : either you can’t stand it, either you get drugged by it.<BR>
      This is their first album and it still has a lot of rough, unpolished edges giving it a lot of character and personality. Beautiful eighties making it far into the next millennium!
