"Short album which continues to articulate that singular Cocteau aesthetic, composed between the shimmering guitars and ethereal female vocals found lingering throughout. Opening with some of their most obvious beauty, it becomes noticeable somewhere through the middle of this album that the haunting melodic sense which usually provides staggering counterpoint to this vocalist seems underdeveloped, sometimes taking their minimal approach down a partially mechanical route, but nearly everything becomes salvaged with exceptional production values for the time highlighting the many facets to this diamond-like music. In the final few songs, the Twins again justify another album experience with greater consuming dynamics, making Victorialand yet another snap-shot of a sound long lost."
