Heel to toe to hair and hoof and it's head over heels and it's all but an ark-lark...

Review of Tiny Dynamine

  • By Charles Shaar Murray

Inside a cover that looks like a cross between the trip sequence from 2001 and a camel’s afterbirth, those fun-loving Cocteau Twins bring you a four-track selection of dead clever Liz Fraser vocal gymnastics, a chorused 12-string guitar sound that’s so rich it could kill a diabetic at 40 paces, and some rather indifferent lyrics.

The closing ‘Sultitan Itan’ is a treat for the very tired to hallucinate to just before bedtime. ▣

(ED: Thanks, Charles!)
