Blue Bell Knoll from Cocteau Twins gets the reissue treatment, remastered some 26 years after its initial release. Strikingly beautiful at points, it features standouts such as 'Athol-Brose' and the title track 'Blue Bell Knoll', but it's a slow burner of an album that features them retreading their best path while venturing into unknown territory. 'Carolyn's Fingers' - perhaps the album's highest point - features Elisabeth Fraser intoning hip-hop rhythms and delightful guitar melodies as played by Robin Guthrie. While not their best work, it's a must for collectors and newcomers alike.
