Quote from: tigermilk on July 30, 2008, 17:07:30Quote from: revolt on July 30, 2008, 15:39:56Cocteau Twins: VictorialandNice! This has recently become my favourite Cocteau Twins album. It keeps changing normally between Treasure and Blue Bell Knoll, but I think Victorialand is breathtaking. I even picked it up on Vinyl even though I don't have a record player, haha. Whales Tails hypnotizes me!! Great album, I really want to get a record player because apparently it's really good when you play it at a different speed, of 33rpm and not 45rpm. Would be an interesting listen!

Quote from: tigermilk on September 22, 2008, 17:36:44I could be wrong, but didn't the Cocteau Twins get their name from a Simple Minds song? A song which was originally called 'A Cure'. Interesting little fact!

Then there is a minority who likes them until NGD (which really seems to be the landamark album that devides the bands's career between the "underground"/"experimental"/"alternative" era and the "huge mainstream success" era) and more or less hate everything after that.I suppose I am of the real-small-minority that truly likes everything they did until "Street Fighting Years" (a very mainstream album but sometimes really beautiful), with the exception of "Once Upon a Time".But 1980-81 Minds was about as great as The Cure of the same period for me. They are groundbreaking, intense and great at creating atmospheres. They would only lose to The Cure by a narrow margin, and that's because for me "Seventeen Seconds" beats every other 80's album with the possible exception of "Closer" and "Pornography".
