Though they were a new band with an incredibly unconventional style, The Cocteau Twins quickly gained a loyal following during the early '80s, both in the . as expensive imports. Released at the start of 1986, The Pink Opaque encapsulated the band’s first three years at the very moment its audacious style was being codified and subsequently revered. What is this style, exactly? It's an impressionist assortment of fragile, icicle-like melodies hidden within caves of ominous atmosphere.

Concluding with the similarly album-ending "Musette and Drums" from Head Over Heels, The Pink Opaque is a lovely taster for anyone wanting to discover the peerless early years of the Cocteaus.

Wax and Wane" is re-mixed from the album Garlands, recorded in spring 1982, when Cocteau Twins comprised Robin Guthrie, Elizabeth Fraser, and Will Heggie. By the summer of 1983 Will Heggie had departed and material was produced for the subsequent release Sunburst and Snowblind, from which "Hitherto" and "From the Flagstones" are taken.

porosh
Iv been coming across a couple copies of this Cocteau twins -pink opaque Re-issue and they came up Defected . Side A Track #1 The Spangle Maker is messed up ..some make noise at the beginning and skips in a couple loops.Any one withe the Same Issue??
Delari
I have an original with a completely different label and matrix number than the one pictured! Going to add it shortly.
Fast Lovebird
Still not sure about original release date. Some sources (Cocteaux' official site, Allmusic) mention November, 1985 [btw, it also matches CAD 513 cat. no.]. But some (including 4AD site) say it's January (13th), 1986.
JoJolar
I noticed that as well. I'm fairly certain it's because the LP & CD had different release dates, with the LP having an Oct/Nov 1985 and the CD the Jan 1986 release. The only vinyl pressing at the time was the U.S. one on Relativity (from late '85), this didn't actually have a U.K. vinyl pressing until the much later 2015 re-issue. The cd from early '86 was released in both the UK. and the U.S. as that has catalog numbers for both Relativity and 4AD on it. I don't want to change it though until I find an exact 1985 release date for the Relativity pressing.

Everything on The Pink Opaque was previously released on 4AD other than "Millimillenary" which was released on the cassette only compilation from NME called "Department Of Enjoyment." The song "Wax and Wane" was remixed for this release by Cocteau Twins/Ivo.
Lyrtois
A collection of early singles, non 4-ad related, and otherwise notable songs from the early years of the Cocteaus. A remix of Wax and Wane (much better than the original and worth it for this alone I think) is included.
