"'Head over Heels' is the most consistent of the earlier Cocteau albums. The import version that includes the 'Sunburst and Snowblind' ep makes sense since they were both recorded during the same sessions. 'Sugar Hiccup' is reprised on the ep, but the three other tracks are the real reason to purchase it. To this day, it amazes me that 'From the Flagstones' and 'Hitherto' weren't included on the original album since they are far more melodic than some of that album's tracks. You can also find both tracks on the import album/compilation 'The Pink Opaque'.(See my review of that album) The final track, 'Because of Whirl Jack' is also a keeper. It is more akin to the almost punkish sounds and tempos of the tracks on their debut, 'Garlands', only again, far more melodic. 'Sunburst and Snowblind' can also be purchased as a part of the limited edition box set that contains all of their ep's. (Essential if you are a diehard) But released in this form as companions, 'Head over Heels/Sunburst and Snowblind' is a "treasure". Similar Artists: Siouxsie and the Banshees, Area, Dead Can Dance."
