2003 remastered reissue of the Cocteau Twins 1986 album "Victorialand". On this album the Cocteau Twins used a new approach compared to their previous albums, they play endlessly with instrumental tone and the listener's ears. "Oomingmak" features Robin sounding like a bunch of huge church bells, and "Little Spacey" mimics a mandolin. Other assorted tones resemble synthesizers, zithers, harps, and acoustic guitar, all rendered in chiming sweeps that make each layer of sound blend seamlessly with those that came before. The opener, "Lazy Calm" is an incredibly restful piece, that somehow never sinks into tedium over its ultra-slow six minute length. The beginning is particularly of note, with a jazzy soprano sax playing softly over Robin's flowing chords and whirring sound effects before picking up into Liz's fluttery vocal at around three minutes. Warmer tracks like "Fluffy Tufts" and "Little Spacey" often come in to lighten the mood when things get a bit to slow. Likewise, there are more chill songs to even things out: "How To Bring A Blush To The Snow" is all eerie melancholy underlined by guitar chords that seem to shiver, and "The Thinner The Air" has howling wintery harmonies that end the album on a rather desolate note. "Feet-Like Fins" begins in the strumming of a few spare chords that echo magically from one ear to the other, conjuring all sorts of underwater images. Liz Fraser nails you with yet another ecstatic, mindblowingly gorgeous vocal, and Robin unleashes so many glittering guitar lines that the whole song sparkles more dazzlingly that than a dozen fireworks lighting up the sky at once.
