9/10 Ian Staff review, 23 January 2014

I guess you could call this a supergroup of sorts and one that has got me all of a quiver to be honest, led by former Cocteau Twins multi instrumentalist Simon Raymonde and featuring a host of special guests including Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway of Radiohead, Eric Pulido and McKenzie Smith from Midlake, Paul Gregory of Lanterns On The Lake and putting the icing on the cake very nicely is the beautiful angelic voice of Stephanie Dosen, who is spookily similar to Raymonde’s old bandmate Elizabeth Fraser.

Put all of these elements together and what you get is very pleasing sound of etherial pop music not heard since the ‘Twins last album all the way back in 1996, in fact what Simon Raymonde and co have created here is a new Cocteau Twins album, albeit without Robin Guthrie’s shimmering guitar sound and Liz’s nonsensical lyrics. It still has that same swaying etherial sound but done with piano, guitar and electronic keyboards and Dosen’s voice compliments this greatly. Accompanying the LP and CD is a bonus disc featuring a complete remix of each track by Michigan electronic producer Rxgibbs who shines a whole new light on what is already a terrific album.
