Entertainment Reviews:

Spin - 12/90
"...Best to sit back and let the Twins' pleasant sound effects envelop you, because the pleasures 'Heaven Or Las Vegas' has to offer aren't the sort you should spend any time thinking about. The Cocteau Twins are proof that you don't necessarily need something to say to get by; something to feel will do just fine..."

4 Stars - Excellent - Included in Q's list of the Fifty Best Albums of 1990.

Ranked #21 in AP's list of the 'Top 99 Of '85-'95.'
Alternative Press - 7/95, p.81
"...The enchanting genius of the Cocteau Twins' high-wrought soul stirrings is more concentrated, and, yes, sublime, than ever on HEAVEN OR LAS VEGAS. The place their music inhabits is undeniably closer to heaven than Nevada..."

Product Description:

Cocteau Twins include: Elizabeth Frazer (vocals); Robin Guthrie (guitar); Simon Raymonde (bass).
A band who have had to endure the term 'ethereal' being bandied about around their name more than any other. With their soulful and quite blissful meanderings, their music has a sustainable beauty free of regard for contemporaries or peers. Heaven Or Las Vegas saw vocalist Elizabeth Fraser substituting the occasional obscure lyric in place of her uniquely visionary wall of sound, and the single, 'Ice Blink Luck', even had a near-recognizable structure and a very tempting hook. Their unearthly wealth of ideas remains undiminished even though Fraser has suffered greatly from problems with her voice in recent years..
