"Ok, i'am so sick and tired of everyone saying that "treasure" is the best cocteau album. Every single cocteau album is appropriate for its time, and four calender is no exception! Each song is a floating masterpiece of pop. Robin guthries guitar work is as mesmerizing as ever, as is elizabeth frasers haunting voice. They are definatly going for a "lighter' sound. Which makes it no less as perfect as their previous work. I do recommend buying all of the new re-mastered albums. They are so clear and beautiful."

"Been listening to this album for years, so much so, I've worn out 3 discs (scratches, heat, etc). It's timeless music to me, good for mellowing, good for falling asleep to, relaxing, reflecting...
Price is a bit steep. Since it's "out of print" and now re-released as "digitally re-mastered", well, I guess the effort makes it command a higher price point, but the reality is, I can't hear any difference between this edition and the original release...
Nevertheless, I'd have paid 50 bucks to replace my last copy. This copy I've imported to I-tunes, so I've burned a CD of it as my daily player, and put my "digitally re-mastered"purchase in my safe deposit box! HAHA!"
The Twins best selling album

"+1/2 Stars. This CD sounds amazing after all these years. Its obvious that when it was first recorded it was done in such a way that the remastering sounds like a CD recorded today--the bass is rich and full. The booklet inside this lovingly presented digipak mentions that the songs were born out of the dissolution of Elizabeth Frasers relationship with Robin Guthrie. Knowing that gives the music a framework that only enriches the whole. Sure there is Heaven or Las Vegas, Treasure, and Blue Bell Knoll, but this latter CT album (along with Milk and Kisses) makes the case for being two of their most enjoyable and listenable releases. Note:Originally the CD was emerald blue, the reissue contains a white CD."
