This is the best album of the Cocteau Twins. It might not be as dramatically gripping as Treasure or as bubble bath luxuriating as Victorialands. It is an introduction to the more 'mature' Cocteau Twins, which set off and then disappeared in the 90's and left for speculation and rumour among its diehard fans.
Elizabeth Fraser, Robin Guthrie and Simon Raymonde made this 1988 release less of a creative departure than a consolidation of what they’d accomplished on previous albums, and Blue Bell Knoll can be seen as an appealing sampler of the Cocteaus’ otherworldly aural confections. The atmospheric shadings here range from Caribbean-accented rhythms ( Suckling the Mender ) to acoustic-rock colors ( Ella Megalast Burls Forever ) and mild funk infusions ( Spooning Good Singing Gum ).

I listened to Blue Bell Knoll for the first time in years and I cried, I just thought it was so lovely. It was quite a difficult time, and I think we just decided to throw ourselves into the creativity. Getting immersed in that process and not worrying about how it would be perceived or the outcome, just going with the flow without expectations, no endgame, just enjoy it, and if it’s not working try something else.
