Prototypical shoegazers and dreampoppers extraordinaire Cocteau Twins are ever-relevant in today's shoegaze revival. This 4 CD box-set contains remastered versions (approved by Robin Guthrie himself) of the band's last two albums: 1991’s Four Calendar Cafe and 1996’s Milk & Kisses. Also included are one and a half disc of B-sides and rarities, and half a disc of live recordings.
Robin Guthrie & Mark Gardener
‘Universal Road’ is the result of a collaborative writing project between Cocteau Twins’s Robin Guthrie and Ride’s Mark Gardener. Given the guitar driven, blissed out sounds of both Ride and Cocteau Twins this pairing seems like an obvious one with a fairly predictable outcome, however the two artists combined have created a record that has it’s own unique voice that stands it’s ground against the backdrop of their previous work through layered harmonies, lush, alluring guitar work and emotional songwriting.
