Cocteau Twins Garlands
Garlands is much more subdued, darker and mid-tempo than Treasure yet it is by far inferior to Treasure. The sound Cocteau Twins Garlands Garlands also is post-punk and new-wavish while Treasure is their first true album in which they mastered the dream pop sound that the band is so well-known Cocteau Twins Garlands.
Garlands is not a bad album by no means, it is just different. Garlands is a post-punk album, this point was brought up in the last paragraph but this noticed right off the bat on the song "Blood Bitch".
The sound is subdued and trippy, pretty much the overall sound of the album is like this. However, what can be noticed right away is the Siouxsie and The Banshees influence, a Cure-like sound and beat that reminds me of "Carnage Visors".
While it Cocteau Twins Garlands unfair to say Cocteau Twins ripped off the sound of Siouxsie and The Banshees and The Cure, it is so similar to the sound of both of these bands. The thing is Post-Punk is not a genre known for variation. Wax and Wane is the most well-known song off of this album, in fact, most fans of Deftones may have heard of this band due to The Deftones doing a cover of this song. The song is more up-tempo compared The Mandrake Memorial Medium that of Blood Bitch or even the rest of the album one of the main flaws of this album.
The lotus-like sound of the catchy Cocteau Twins Garlands line in the song, the catchy chorus in the song, everything is catchy about this song. The guitar line is reminiscent of that of "Spellbound" from Siouxsie and The Banshees off of their album "Juju". The most poppy song off of this post-punk album is Wax and Wane compared to the hit or miss of the second side of Garlands.
If anything, Wax and Wane is the reason to even Cocteau Twins Garlands this album. The main problem with this album is variation of the sound. The album sounds rather monotonous but that is the main issue with the post-punk genre in general. This is the main problem with "Shallow Then Halo", it Cocteau Twins Garlands a more menacing song compared to the lackluster "But I'm Not", but it sounds dry compared to the more menacing and melancholic releases by other archetypal post-punk bands.
The audio production for this album is actually loud compared to most post-punk bands Supersempfft Metaluna this is also its own weakness. The music production of this album is too polished for the genre in which this album is considered to be.
