2003 reissue of 1990 album digitally remastered by Cocteau Twins guitarist Robin Guthrie. In 1990 the Cocteau Twins stood at the cusp of a major change that would affect the band's inner chemistry in a very permanent, ultimately detrimental way. Not that they knew it at the time. Though tensions had been brewing between the Cocteau Twins and 4AD's president, Ivo Watts-Russell, their contract still stipulated they release one more album after what would be Heaven Or Las Vegas. No one actually asked that they be let go early. However, in 1991 that's exactly what Ivo did, giving them total freedom to leave. Thankfully, however, Heaven Or Las Vegas was finished before the forces that be popped the Twins' creative bubble and not a moment too soon. It would have been very sad indeed if listeners had not been able to hear the final development of their sound. Liz stated afterward that Heaven Or Las Vegas was an attempt to shed some of the Cocteau Twins' mystery, a remark born out by the fact that this is easily their most accessible and outstandingly catchy work to date. "Wolf In The Breast" would have been a standout on any other album, and the end number "Frou-Frou Foxes In Midsummer Fires" is the best epic the Twins have delivered since "Donimo" and finishes the record on a glowing high note.
