Cover of The Moon And The Melodies

From The Moon And The Melodies

Most of this album’s tracks are rather subdued, but Eyes Are Mosaics is a pleasant, easy tune. The overall sound is really all Cocteau Twins here. Harold Budd’s contributions are probably in the keyboard part, but elsewhere there is little to suggest that this track might not equally well have featured on one of the Cocteau’s earlier EP’s.

Also unlike most other tracks on The Moon And The Melodies Liz is singing merrily and with great variety here. She has quite a few different melodies to take care of and these are all cleverly braided together. Her high notes nicely counterbalance Simon’s very prominent bass, whose heavy accents reminds one of those that were used to great effect in The Spangle Maker.

Eyes Are Mosaics is a nice song, but it is mostly noteworthy for Liz’ vocal performances. Apart from that one can’t help feeling this is the kind of effort the Cocteaus could have written by the dozen any time they wanted to.
