This is a digitally remastered compilation of the Cocteau Twins' work on 4AD, the label that they began their career with. It is not all inclusive, since they left that label a full 8 years before the end of their career and such later work is not represented. However, it is important to remember that their mid-80's work on 4AD was groundbreaking. They were making music like no one else. As an introduction to the Cocteau Twins' music Stars and Topsoil does a fine job. It showcases the Twins' awesome production and their unique choice of instrumentation. Plus, Elizabeth Fraser's voice, arguably the real "draw" of the band, shines really well in this selection of songs. This musical journey through their career shows that they pretty much had a sound, which can be explained as a cross between Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Cure, Dif Juz, Breathless and Dead Can Dance. It means that their music can be described as soft, calm, peaceful and dreamlike. This compilation is a very good introduction to Cocteau Twins. If you've been curious about them, now you definitely have a good chance to check them out.
