5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure: the Cocteau's masterpiece. Feb. 5 2006
Format:Audio CD
Fans all have their favourites, and often those very favourites change upon rediscovering an artist's music. With the Cocteau Twins, I can honestly say that--as much as I love all their work--Treasure is their most timeless of treats. Building on their ground-breaking soundscapes that characterized Head Over Heals, this album is a work of infinite beauty. Liz Fraser's voice is in fine form, and the baffling one-word song titles keep the curiosity level high; the lyrics as well are equally mysterious, since they rarely seem to mean much. Really, the sum of its parts is the best way to define this album's beauty.
Robin Guthrie's meticulous remastering makes for a fine listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange yet familiar May 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Cocteau Twins are the sort of band that has a very distinctive sound, unlike anything that has come before or since, and "Treasure" is an outstanding example of their sound.
Tracks like Otterly and Donimo, the last songs on the album, sound at once otherworldly and intensely familiar. Other reviewers have compared this music to the singing of angels, and that comparison isn't far off - it sounds like it's always been there, playing just beyond the range of your hearing as the sun rises (in the case of Donimo) or you drift off to sleep (for Otterly) or grin inwardly as you prepare a suprise for someone you love (Pandora, though oddly titled for it).
If you're new to the Cocteau Twins and looking for a place to start, "Treasure" is an ideal place to start as an early example of that distinctive otherworldly-familiar sound. If you're already a fan and looking for more, "Treasure" will be a welcome addition, as it combines the dreamlike vocals of Victorialand with the stronger instrumentations of "Milk and Kisses" and similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timepiece never changes pace Dec 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
Music that becomes you.
Words that surface like lost phrases of Dickinson.
From the celestial to the carnal, these songs soar,
dive, rise, and cut through the air.
Frazer is the great unknown poet.
Guthrie is the metaphysical architect.
Do yourself a favor.
Buy every single recording they ever made.
