2003 remastered reissue of the Cocteau Twins debut album "Garlands". When the Cocteau Twins got started, they probably weren't anyone's bet to achieve lasting indie recognition, let alone a hit just two albums later on the 4AD label. Will Heggie plays gloomy, gothic sounding bass lines a la Joy Division, and Robin Guthrie, a guitarist with a love for cascading, feedback drenched riffs. In front was Liz Fraser, an awkward, barely on key vocalist with a habit of singing unintelligible lyrics in falsetto and giving strange tremulous wails at the end of each line. All this to a series of primitive drum machine rhythms completed the band's ultra-repetitive brand of goth-rock. For the most part, it almost isn't possible to describe the individual tracks as they all meet the criteria above. Every song is played and sung around a dance beat grindingly repeated by the afore mentioned drum machine. Sometimes the band vamps over a single chord or riff before the actual song begins as in "Blood Bitch". Sometimes there is a little mid-song jam with tons of feedback and the odd sound effect as in "The Hollow Men". Liz even repeats the central line of a few songs ("Wax and Wane", "Garlands") in sing-song. This last device actually adds a hypnotic quality and makes these tracks stand out above the pack even if the mood never changes.
