My next impression - the highlighted 80s on top.
There was a broadcast cycle in Polish Radio 3 from the seventies, the author provided a thorough education on trends, genres and milestones of rock. In the eighties he was keen on all the 4AD stuff, presenting a lot to Polish listeners. There was a common sentence that time: a day without Pandora is a day lost.

nice, Thanks for including "Pink Opaque", the only album that includes "Spangle Maker", my favorite CT song...I have periodically put that compilation on my chart, but take it off because it is a compilation...should put it on again...It is such a great song...one of the all time greatest tracks..

good list. you have a refined aesthetic. I like this style of music, but it's not my favorite. When I am feeling like Cocteau Twins I will look into some of the other picks on your chart that I don't know about yet. Thanks!
