following their ascent from alternative novices to universally acclaimed artists, ‘stars & topsoil’ is a fine testament to one of the most original bands to emerge in the last 3 decades.

over a career at 4ad that spanned 6 albums & 7 eps, cocteau twins retained an intriguing uniqueness of style that defied comparison. elizabeth fraser’s glittering vocals, unintelligible & perfect, robin guthrie’s edgy guitar, all grounded by simon raymonde’s bass - this chronological collection is a fitting reminder of why cocteau twins are so important - musical visionaries who transcended convention yet achieved massive international success.
