About this item

Back in 1986, ‘The Pink Opaque’ brought together the best of the Cocteau Twins’ early works to become their first official release in the US.

Already a cult band on college radio, some classics like ‘Pearly-Dewdrops’ Drops’ and ‘Aikea-Guinea’ were given new mixes for this release, while it also featured ‘Millimillenary’, the first run out for incoming band member Simon Raymonde.

To this day, ‘The Pink Opaque’ remains a great entry point to a wonderful band. 

Using new masters created from high definition files transferred from the original analogue tapes, the album is a 180g vinyl pressing complete with download code.
