  • Summary: This first U.S. release (a debut album, 'Roulette,' was released in 2001 in the UK only) for the duo of ex-Cocteau Twins guitarist Robin Guthrie and ex-Mono vocalist Siobhan De Mare compiles the contents of three previous EPs along with three new tracks and a video (on a bonus CD-ROM).

  1. This is a breath of cognac- and cigarette-scented air on an almost-dead pop scene.
  2. So it may not be Cocteau Twins II, but it nevertheless is still another top-notch entry in the sound that they created almost two decades ago.
  3. They so precisely meet your expectations that no matter how good the music might be, you can't help but be disappointed by the sheer dearth of surprises.
  4. There are few hooks to grab the ear or inspire repeat listening. [Apr 2002, p.86]
