Scottish trio Cocteau Twins shocked their fan base in 1993 by leaving their longtime label home at 4AD for major label Fontana. This era has always been considered problematic, as it found the mysterious group suddenly sounding not so mysterious. This four disc box set compiles all of their releases for the label, and offers up an important rethink about the band’s final chapter.
Zurich was a one-off collaboration featuring Slowdive’s Neil Halstead, and serves as the Rosetta Stone for the band’s misunderstood final album, Pygmalion.
