This album is mellow and beautiful.When I first purchased this back in the day ,on vinyl,I was playing it at 33 1/3 rpm(as is the norm with albums) for nearly 6 months, not realising it was supposed to be played at 45rpm.So I got 2 albums for the price of one..I urge anyone who has this on vinyl to try listening to it at both speeds(seperately!!)....Liz Frasers other beauty is in her exceptional voice..

this album is testamonial to Liz Fraser's voice - she is THE finest singer to have ever lived.
i found this album very difficult to get into at first. to an extent, it's still pretty difficult as it's quite different to other Cocteau Twins albums.
musically its very mellow and slow. most of the tracks are built around Liz Fraser's amazing vocals while Robin Guthrie and Simon Raymonde take more of a backseat. thats not to say they do little. the music is beautiful and gently ushers the vocals through an ethereal dreamworld, and reveals more fruits the more you listen to it. Whales Tails is a dark and majestic piece while The Thinner The Air and Lazy Calm occupy a place somewhere between minimalist chill-out and epic movie soundtrack score.
of all the Twins' albums, this is probably the hardest one to get into, but if you make the effort, you will surely grow to appreciate it's beauty.
