Lab Overview

Dreampop essential! By the time Cocteau Twins released Heaven Or Las Vegas, they had been perfecting their singular sound for nearly 10 years, recording exclusively for Ivo Watts-Russell’s highly respected indie powerhouse 4AD. After the fallout of goth & post-punk, 4AD became a buy-on-sight label for fans of lush & dreamy indie pop sounds, largely due to the Cocteaus' near-perfect run of albums in the mid to late 80s. On Heaven Or Las Vegas, Liz Fraser’s uncanny voice and lyrics are higher in the mix and more intelligible than ever before, and Robin Guthrie’s masterful, proto-shoegaze guitar playing and Simon Raymond’s atmospherics fully distilled, culminating in this most critically and commercially successful record of their career. Watts-Russell called it his favorite record in the entire 4AD catalog “by a long shot”, and while it may be a bold statement, we’re inclined to agree with him. This should be in any record collection, period. Recommended.
