Heaven or Las Vegas is the best album ever by the Cocteau Twins and ALL of their albums are amazing. Listening to this album will transport and uplift the listener. Absolutely gorgeous melodies, guitars, and vocals. Sublime!

I have an strong bias towards this album, and Cocteau twins in general but these could be some of the best and most underrated noises ever made

This album is as good, if not better than "Treasure", released 6 years earlier. Once again, her vocals work surprisingly well with the gibberish lyrics, creating a totally unique musical atmosphere.

I really dig this album; to me it was a slow grower. I guess it's because I'm so accustomed to the contemporary electro-dreampop combo of acts like Beach House that this struck me as rudimentary upon first listen. I was wrong. Upon checking out their earlier stuff (Blue Bell Knoll) I see their progression as a band and as genre-bending musicians. If you're having trouble getting into Cocteau Twins, try listening through Blue Bell Knoll and coming back to Heaven or Las Vegas :-)

I never realized how much I would love this album. It's a very dreamy album, kind of like Loveless by My Bloody Valentine or Disintegration by The Cure. The singer, Elizabeth Fraser, is a great singer. She has a very smooth voice that can hit higher octaves.

After Elizabeth Fraser, you have Chorus infused guitar that sounds like something in a Shoegaze record. If you like My Bloody Valentine, you'll love Cocteau Twins.

My favourite Cocteau twins album. Heaven or las Vegas, is a dreamy masterpiece. It's great that you can hardly understand the words because it's all about feel and atmosphere. It all works in the context of an album, but some songs such as, iceblink luck, work on their own. Lovley album then, as beautiful and as colourful as the record sleeve.
