IT'S a 10!all the songs fit together.I listen to it too

Me encanta!!! "lullabies" es el disco perfecto para escuchar en un
triste y frio dia de invierno, en esos dias en que la depresion no te
deja levantarte de la cama..."Feathers Oar Blades" es sexualmente
pervertida y dulcemente esquizofrénica, tanto así que ha veces tengo la
necesidad de escucharla hasta para ir a comprar. Ese hipnótico
"lalalalalala" me produce ganas de gritar de puro placer. "Alas Dies
Laughing" tiene el encanto de la obscuridad mezclada con la obsesión del
sufrimiento. Es como volver a los días mas sombrios de la edad media.
"...Ark Lark" es absolutamente gótica. Despues de escucharla me pregunto
si vale la pena seguir viendo MTV.

'Lullabies' gives you the gothic 'Garlands' sound in concentrated
form with no blissed-out jamming to smooth things over. And as such, it
has even more impact. And, as such, it might be even more essential. I
don't think `Ark Lark' goes on too long - it has a certain cumulative
power, the end is as dizzying as `Musette and Drums'. (`Grail
Overfloweth' is the one that might be overlong, surely). Further
evidence that even if they hadn't developed into something totally
unique in from '84 onwards, they could've been an awesome goth band. I
always wonder why `Feathers Oar Blades' is never played at goth clubs -
`Peppermint Pig' and `Wax and Wane' I've heard, but `Feathers', a
certified dancefloor stormer, certainly unique in the Cocteau catalogue.
That dissonant `guitar solo' in the middle is one of their sublime

kullabies is so scaring...like garlands: cold and sweet in the same
time.How wouldn't be one frightened by this mixture of sirens voices and
death calls...cocteau twins...

Peppermint Pig er en nærmest perfekt oppfølger til Lullabies, men en
god del svakere. Disse to platene gir Cocteau Twins ekstra dimensjoner.
Selv om forskjellen på utgivelsene er ganske store (Garlands ~ Milk
& Kisses), så har det gått veldig naturlig for seg. Kanskje det
største spranget finnes nettopp her, og det har nok med at Will Heggie
forlot bandet. Det er ingen tvil om at han hadde stor innflytelse og var
jo mer en punker i musikalsk forstand enn det Robin var. Det er heller
ingen tvil om at begge tittelkuttene er i en klasse for seg. Fylt med
kanonriff og upbeat som fan! Disse 2 + In Our Angelhood danner en slags
punk-divisjon for seg selv. “la, la, lullabie la, la, lullabie,

The raptureous Feathers-Oar-Blades bouncing in Hinterlands..
Fantastic! Growing up with this EP it didn't sound like much, but now..
So gorgeous-ly different from their lovely laziness of post-Treasure
years, and so wistful. This is a mood-phaser, as is Garlands, and all in

WELL- "All But An Ark Lark" is the ONLY Cocteau Twins song, save for
the long version of "Sugar Hiccup", where, about halfway through, I find
myself saying, "Oh, eNUFF already." Over and over and OVER with the same
thing and it just doesn't work for me. Liz's vocals just sound harsh to
me, barking almost... Oh, well, I do like "Feathers Oar-Blades", with
the hypnotic "lalalalalalalalala"... though, I think they do this thing
better with "Because Of Whirljack" on SUNBURST AND SNOWBLIND. LULLABIES
isn't a favorite of mine.

'All But an Ark-Lark' is the best track on the best piece of vinyl
ever released by anyone. No question about it - sheer
chaotic/melodic/raucous/angelic bliss. It's a pity it's so

The kind of blur the Twins' create is fabulous on this early EP.
"Feathers-Oar-Blades", like its title, somehow manages to be both
furious and teasing. While friends of mine howl that it sounds too
fucking much like a Pat Benetar song, I will admit to doing dance
aerobics to "Feathers . . " every so often. (Am I weird? Besides, the
whole LP sounds "more like" early The Cure and Joy Division.) There are
neat dark echoes of Garlands on Lullabies, as well as a periodic preview
CRASH! of that immense-wall-of-sound sound that Robin was going to get
good at very soon. Even if that's all written down to consciousness
though, some of the chord changes in "Alas Dies Laughing" and "It's All
But An Ark Lark" make me go fucking crazy! Like bugging my eyeballs all
out and vibrating like a Tickle-Me Elmo.

This the essential Twins EP. Let the epic grandeur of "Ark-Lark"
sweep you into the swirling, razor-blade guitar screaming,banshee
wailing world of Pre-Treasure Twins. The perfect companion to "Head over
