Available simultaineously with the Limited Edition box set comes the Cocteau Twins crowning moment, their beloved 1984 album, Treasure. Remastered from the original analogue tapes specially for this vinyl edition, Treasure is pressed on 180 gram vinyl, is limited to 5,000 copies with sleeve printed on heavyweight board and newly designed inner bag by 4AD creative maestro, Vaughan Oliver. On release in 1984 the album topped the UK Independent Charts and even made it as far as number 28 on the National Album chart. The album was not unworthy of the praise received. At the time, it was in true Cocteau fashion-unlike anything else anyone had yet heard. Treasure proved to be the Cocteau Twins recording highlight, on release it was met with unprecedented accolades from fans and the press. In fact some press response was near hysterical, calling them 'the voice of God.' Treasure marked a trend in Cocteau Twins music to blur the edges more, and further detach the music from any sort of definite structure. The songs themselves rely heavily on effects, and often the sounds one hears are reminiscent of the baroque or more modern gothic/synthetic music (such as Mike Oldfield 'Tubular Bells'- like Otterley) accompanied by layers of delayed or fuzzed out guitars, and the occasional acoustic style strummimg rhythm (as on 'Ivo' and 'Cicely' for example).180 Gram pressing. 4AD. 2010.
