cocteau twins Treasure (180g vinyl LP, £15.75)label: 4ad
The band returned to a trio in 1984 with guitarist Simon Raymonde joining their ranks in time for third album, ‘Treasure’. Produced by Robin Guthrie and featuring tracks ‘Lorelei’, ‘Ivo’ and ‘Persephone’, ‘Treasure’ is often celebrated as one of the band’s finest works. As Pitchfork put it when including the album in their Top 100 Albums Of The 1980s, “‘Treasure’ was titled simply enough. An adjective for the endlessly inventive melodic lines you’d find buried in these songs, and a verb for what you’d do with them for years to come.” Using a new master created from high definition files transferred from the original analogue tape, the album is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and comes with a digital download code.
