Cico Buff by the Cocteau Twins

How old is boards?

15? 20 years now?

And not one single mention of the single greatest song by any rock band, ever ever ever ever....

(IMHO)

Cico Buff by the Cocteau Twins.

Ha.

I feel like contradicting myself already after listening to Carolyn's Fingers ...

No, I'll stick with Cico Buff.

A Kissed Out Red Floatboat is better than Cico Buff. This has been proven by sciency people.

'Carolyn's Fingers' is the sound of joy. This song makes me smile no matter what. It's probably the one song I've listened to more than any other and I still have no idea what it is she's singing.

As some poster commented on youtube - "Some music gets old very quickly but this song took a long time to sound new".

Sound of joy. I like that, that captures it perfectly, that's what it is.

Would love to see her perform live.

I would say Bluebell Knoll....

Heaven or Las Vegas was their biggest album hit.

Treasure or The Pink Opaque are the best starting points imo.

Starting point either Heaven Or Las Vegas and Blue Bell Knoll to give you an idea of the sound and then you can delve deeper with Treasure, Four Calendar Cafe etc. Their sound mellowed throughout their career so the early stuff is less accessible but just as rewarding on repeated listens.

I know this is an old thread but I'm ecstatic about Liz Fraser singing with Massive Attack next Sunday in the 3Arena. Never thought I'd get to hear her live. Anyway, love this:

Her voice is incredible, that will be a great gig. Great song from Treasure which doesn't get mentioned much

This song hasn't been aired in the thread yet but if we want to appreciate her voice, this is perfect.
I'm going to the gig with Massive Attack just to say that I was once in the same room as Liz Fraser, albeit a rather large room.
