AllMusic Review by

When 4AD released the lavish and extensive Lullabies to Violaine, they also split the original four-disc release into two separate volumes. This, the first volume, covers the Cocteau Twins' 4AD era, from the beginning through Heaven or Las Vegas -- the singles/EPs Lullabies, Peppermint Pig, Sunburst and Snowblind, The Spangle Maker, Aikea-Guinea, Tiny Dynamine, Echoes in a Shallow Bay, Love's Easy Tears, and Iceblink Luck. With the exception of the 12" mixes of "Peppermint Pig" and "Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops," everything that appeared on the original releases is contained here, though Robin Guthrie does supply alternate mixes of "Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops" and "Aikea-Guinea" (which won't make a lick of difference to 999 out of 1,000 fans).
