"The Thinner the Air," but this is like a top 20 album. I love every track.

The floatiest album by the floatiest band of the 80s dreampop scene. Legend has it that the original reverb trails from 1986 are still resonating.

I will listen again before going with my initial choice of 'Lazy Calm.'

But yeah, it's 'Lazy Calm.'

my god what this album meant to me age 18-19. Either Dark Months or Blush, I better have a listen I suppose!

After consulting my Cocteau Twins POX list I have to conclude it's "Lazy Calm"

this is absolutely my favorite Cocteau Twins album... hard to pick a single track though, this is always for listening to from start to finish!

My vote's down to those two, too

Perhaps because I revere this LP so much, I've never been tempted to play it at 33rpm. I hear it's quite a trip. Maybe this weekend, eh? I've waited 31 years.

Maybe it hasn't "dated" (not that I care) as much as other Cocks' records because there's no door-slamming drum machines. I'll go for "Dark Months".

easily "lazy calm"

Oomingmak for me

I've never been tempted to play it at 33rpm. I hear it's quite a trip

because i borrowed this album from my library and taped it at home and didn't look at the record label properly i spent the first umpteen years of knowing it only listening to it at 33

not picking a track, that would be silly

I bought it at the time, and I still played it at 33 for the first few weeks....

This is probably the only Cocteau Twins album that I can't aurally conjure up in my brain. I know I know the songs, I just can't connect them to their song titles or the album. So I guess I need to relisten, huh.

My favorite album from my favorite band. I have no idea how to vote for a single track.

last minute voters, you better get in on this.

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

this poll is void, the song title is Feet-Like Fins, there has to be a do-over

avellano medio inglés (f. hazel), Friday, 31 July 2020 00:11 (one week ago) link

oh hush, you didn't even vote for it lol

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Friday, 31 July 2020 00:57 (one week ago) link

I thought it was some Japanese-only bonus track!
