CD Reviews

Quite simply, one of the greatest albums ever | Connecticut | 06/22/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, this is the Cocteau Twins I know and love. Otherworldly music with a quality that transcends everyday life. It's not every album that is capable of providing the listener with a spiritual experience, but the Cocteau Twins do that with ease. On this album and Treasure, and to a lesser extent on Blue Bell Knoll and Heaven or Las Vegas, they have created a rich musical tapestry, full of magic, wonder, and awe. Raw emotion expressed with music. Or is it something bigger than emotion? Whatever it is that the Cocteau Twins do to me, no other band can do it, and for that I am most grateful to them. I would still probably recommend that new listeners start with Heaven or Las Vegas or Blue Bell Knoll, but this is their finest moment."
This CD is beautiful!

"What I like about this CD is the innocency of each melody. Some of the other Cocteau Twins's releases are quite brooding (though still very well composed). Victorialand leaves me with a kind of ethereal, otherworldly attitude that helps a sullen heart not take life so seriously."
Nothing else compares

"immerse yourself in this CD, the cocteau twins' finest hour. its emotional range, lush instrumentation and vocals not of this earth still mesmerize, relax and inspire me 14 years later.feeling introspective, romantic, solitary, meditative...or wish you were? liz, robin and simon have your soundtrack ready. worth the money, without a doubt."
