AllMusic Review by

This box set is a completist's dream, containing all of the Cocteau Twins' singles for 4AD, from 1982's Lullabies through 1990's Iceblink Luck, as well as a four track disc of outtakes and rarities. As everything here approaches or surpasses their full-length work (the Cocteaus always treated each of their singles with the same loving care applied to their LPs), it's a not-too-pricey package for the middle-of-the-road fan as well. The originally packaged singles come in a nifty flip-top box made of deep red cloth. If you're on the fence on whether or not to invest in it, quit fretting -- hop to it and sell your fridge if you must. All told, this is the equivalent of three solid full-lengths.
