We feel that, by this point, you’re aware of everyone’s positions on this band so far, but there’s still a little twist at the end that you’ll want to stay tuned for as we take some (a lot of) time to chat about the legendary Heaven or Las Vegas by Cocteau Twins. A lot has been said about this album of the years. It’s highly lauded by just about anyone that has an affection for shoegaze, dreampop, 80s goth and even goth-grandad himself Robert Smith. Their influence is huge at this point, even if upon reflection they had a rather cantankerous relationship with the media and their fans. But the fact remains, is any artist beyond reproach? We look at it from all angles - someone who loves it, someone who hates it and someone who’s indifferent. The truth for some may be in the middle. Or maybe at least one of us is talking absolute tosh. Either way, it’s an entertaining listening so join us as we say hello, and goodbye, to Heaven or Las Vegas.
