    totally agree enchant. I would change tons of stuff about their "Stars and Topsoil" collection really (sadly that seems much more popular), but this is simply a perfect compilation. startin with the Spangle Maker, Hitherto into PDD, the ticking clock on Pepper Tree blasting into Mussette and Drums feels also even better than on the original discs.

    Whoever put this compilation together knew what was up. Most of the time compilations don't compare to albums very well in terms of quality, but this is all kinds of amazing and is one of my absolute favorite Cocteau Twins releases. I need this on vinyl!

    a truly great compilation of their earlier stuff, all songs really good and with such highlights as "drops", "lorelei" and of course the most epic ending "m&d" this might really be my favorite release of theirs
