I sure some of you are tired of reading reviews of Twinlights, but i felt i
had to get what i was feeling off of my chest. From what i had been reading
on several lists, i had no idea what to expect. What i did expect was a new
direction, since i have been listening to them since about 1984, and every
album hold something new; some new direction that they explore. I have to
say, though, that this EP took me by surprise. I absolutely love it. The
arrangements are delicate and well thought out, the mood is intimate and
warm, and that voice! This EP, I feel, showcases the best of the
ever-changing Cocteau Twins. Even the artwork is facinating. They have
stated that this EP is not their 'new' sound, but i would love if they did a
full album in this style. 'Otherness' will have a new direction; 'Milk and
Kisses' will have a direction...and so on...and so on...that's what I love
about CT...you can't pigeonhole them...
Ok...to answer David's question:

I don't know the Cocteau Twins as well online here as I know others are,
but in my opinion, the best Twins albums are...
1) Blue Bell Knoll
2) The Pink Opaque
4) Moon and the Melodies

Some how I doubt it. Mark K. wishes he was the tortured soul he trys to make
him self to be. He's more of a sorry soul and creates his own problems. I'm
surprised someone hasn't slapped him silly and told him to get over his big

When they toured in Europe during the spring of 1981, they used some
introfilm instead of a support-act, I remember hearing the "soundtrack"
to this short film was put on the b-side of the cassette-version of Faith.

It isn't, but it could be added to the US version, I suppose.

I think I saw a mention of it among the upcoming releases in AP, but all I
know is that it'll be out before the end of the year, on Drag City, if I

this people thinks it is a good release, the tune "vow" hit me as one
of the great listens first time type tunes. Angelfish is so much
better in this gig, her group's release last year was sorta lame,
IMNSHO. "Queer" is another catchy tune. And while i wouldn't call
this brilliant it is very strong, and that's a good thing these days.
Butch did a nice job, kudos...

There have been several comments on here about when things are coming,
particularly the Mojave LP. Here are the release dates that I know (all UK)
Amps ep - 9th Oct '95
Scheer ep - 9th Oct '95
Air Miami ep - 16th Oct '95
Mojave LP - 16th Oct '95
Air Miami LP - 30th Oct '95
Amps LP - 30th Oct '95
Whether there will be any other releases in '95 is doubtful. There may be a new
Lush ep before Christmas. Early '96 will see LPs from Heidi Berry, Scheer, Lush,
Dead Can Dance, His Name Is Alive and Lisa Germano.

The new member is Chris, he plays piano, keyboards and is Rachel's

were in Toronto, very nice couple they were.

they're another "corporate rock" band. not that all major label stuff is
bad. i just think it's funny that i keep seeing them pegged as a Madison
band (butch vig is from Madison) when i don't ever remember them playing
here. that's my beef with garbage. then again, i could be wrong.

But it IS complicated existentially speaking: Harold Budd wrote about two
thirds of the album.
Anyway, while we're not being existentially complicated, the best Cocteau
Twins album is Lifeforms 1-7. :)

it might just turn up that i will not have anyone to go to this concert with.
yeah, i know it sucks and all, but what can i do? so, i *might*
have an extra tix. i will only know for sure tomorrow night, so
if by any chance i can't get any of my friends to come with me, i will
post an *invitation* to the list.
so, anyone in nyc who did not get tix for the show, but who would like to go,
make sure to e-mail me privately after (and if) i post that i am going
i was planning to take a friend who never heard dcd or lisa gerrard, so it
would be an "initiation." :) the only thing that my friend has ever
listened to that come close to the dcd/gerrard sound was deep forest.
*smile* oh, and enigma. :) yeah, i know, a bit lame, perhaps, but
when asked to define lisa's type of music, i could only say: "she
sings middle eastern/middle age like/ethereal music." needless to
say that i got a big "huh?" from my friend.
so i just told her that it was like enigma and deep forest without the hype.
