This class act has seldom been replicated or reprised, and among the few bands that have tried so, they don't inherit the very spiritual essence that makes Cocteau Twins so unique. CT are not perfect on every album of course, but they have so many brilliant works to showcase, each of which is a different type of dream; for instance, Treasure feels like a dark and gloomy dream, Heaven or Las Vegas a sweet dream, Head over Heels a devilish dream!

Oh and music aside, don't you find the artworks of their album covers aesthetically bewitching? They're pure art from my perspective!

They were such a great band. Liz Fraser's voice so beautiful. And those crazy non-sensical song titles!!

Liz has one of the most stunning and influential voices in music history. Without them there would be no MBV making them more influential and just plain better.

Brilliant band. It's so sad that so many people haven't heard of their music it's so blissful and magical. Heaven or Las Vegas is their most stunning work as it sounds like a living dream and Treasure is a magical masterpiece that sounds like it's been buried at the bottom of the ocean for a 1000 years. Genius.
