Deciding to scale back the overly pretty sound on Blue Bell Knoll while experimenting with more accessibility -- -- the Twins ended up creating their best album since Treasure. From the start, Heaven Fraser simply captivates; her vocals are the clearest, most direct they've ever been, purring with energy and life.
Many songs have longer openings and closings; rather than crashing fully into a song and then Heaven Or Las Vegas - Various - Rockin Beats ending, instead the trio carefully builds up and eases back. These songs are still quite focused, though, almost sounding like they were recorded live instead of being assembled in the studio.
Due credit has to be given to the Cocteaus ' drum programming; years of working with the machines translated into the detailed work here, right down to the fills. But the Twins don't completely turn their back on Knoll 's sound; "Iceblink Luck," has the same lush feeling and a newfound energy -- the instrumental break is almost a rave-up!
There are many moments of sheer Cocteaus beauty and power, including the title track, with its great chorus, and two spotlight Guthrie solos: "Fotzepolitic," a powerful number building to a rushing conclusion, and Heaven Or Las Vegas - Various - Rockin Beats album-ending "Frou Frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires.
