Album Review

When 4AD released the lavish and extensive Lullabies to Violaine, they also split the original four-disc release into two separate volumes. This, the first volume, covers the Cocteau Twins' 4AD era, from the beginning through Heaven or Las Vegas — the singles/EPs Lullabies, Peppermint Pig, Sunburst and Snowblind, The Spangle Maker, Aikea-Guinea, Tiny Dynamine, Echoes in a Shallow Bay, Love's Easy Tears, and Iceblink Luck.
