CD Reviews

Intricate beauty of a seashell
Steven K. de la Vaux | Atlanta, Georgia | 10/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded in 1985, the 'Aikea-Guinea' EP continues in the same tradition as 'Treasure'. The title track 'Aikea Guinea' - a Scottish colloquialism for seashell - is a beautiful, emotionally stunning piece of music. There is also a version of this song on 'The Pink Opaque' with a slightly different mix. This EP was the last work of what I like to call the cocteaus "minimalist" period; subsequent to this period the twins moved into more aural soundscapes and ambience characterized by the use of sequencers and guitar effects (e.g., 'Echos in a Shallow Bay' EP)"
