Cocteau Twins - The Pink Opaque

Back in 1986, The Pink Opaque brought together the best of the Cocteau Twins’ early works to become their first official release in the US.  Then a cult band on college radio, some classics like ‘Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops’ and ‘Aikea-Guinea’ were given new mixes for this release, while it also featured ‘Millimillenary’, the first run out for incoming band member Simon Raymonde.  To this day, it remains a great entry point to a wonderful band.
