AllMusic Review by

This is the second volume of Lullabies to Violaine's split-release version (4AD initially released the two volumes in one elaborately packaged set), which covers the Cocteau Twins' Capitol-era singles and EPs -- Evangeline, Snow, Bluebeard, Twinlights, Otherness, and the two-part singles for Tishbite and Violaine. Everything that appeared on the original releases can be found here. The convenience of having the two tracks from the limited Snow single will be of particular interest for fans who weren't quick enough the first time around; though the versions of "Winter Wonderland" and "Frosty the Snowman" showed up on compilations across the years, the original single release fetched some steep amounts of money.
