COCTEAU TWINS Released Debut Album ‘GARLANDS’ 40 Years Ago Today

 

10 July 2022

Band: COCTEAU TWINS (Grangemouth, Scotland)
Robin Guthrie (guitars, drum machine), Will Heggie (bass),
and Elizabeth Fraser (vocals)
Active: 1979-1997 / 8 studio LPs

Anniversary album: GARLANDS
Released: 10 July 1982
Score: #14 in the UK

AllMusic said: “Too many of the songs rely on a unified formula that rarely changes;
one need only compare to the multiplicity of styles tried on Head Over Heels to see the difference. As a debut effort, though, Garlands makes its own curious mark, preparing
the band for greater heights.”
Score: 2/5.

TUVT: CT sounded like a Siouxsie and The Banshees cover band on their firstborn.
