Soul. (those are the ones I really like!!!) The ones that are kinda good
'in my opinion' are.. Primitive Heart,Violane,Alice. The other songs are

i don't know why they say TISHBITE blue is a limited edition: i've
been looking for years to get the YELLOW one...FLOCK OF SOUL remembers
me those Bluebearded gorgeous sounds, so specifical for 'Four-Calendar
Cafť".that's why is one of my favourite...as much as a round primitive
heart and a tishbite flock of soul...

What can I say.Primitive heart is my favorite cocteau twin song.Well,
I suppose that favorite songs depend on a moment of your life that you
have lived through.

i really love an elan and flock of soul on the tishbite singles. with
an elan, it seems to me like it is an interpretation of ribbed and
veined (from tiny dynamine) ten years later, mellowed out. does anyone
one else hear it?????

Tishbite 2 the Yellow One....... I knew that all the M&K stuff
had be there but I never really got into it. My dad who bought the all
th CT releases is a fan too. I then one day decide to listen to the
violaine pink one after hearing the cover of Tranguil Eye by Faye Wong I
liked it, then I also listened to all the other b-sides on the M&K
singles and I liked them all. But My Favourite Songs Are: 1.tishbite
2.Bluebeard 3.Five Ten Fiftyfold 4.The High Monkey Monk 5.Primative
Heart. I have chosen Tishbite pt2 as the best release by Cocteau Twins
which has good and relaxing sounds and a NICE sleeve cover...Buy it

"An Elan" knocked me on my BUTT when I first heard it. While the
structure of the song is a bit formulaic in its build-up, well, I don't
care, it's a beautiful ride, and sounds less "canned" then some previous
e.p. stuff. (hooray for September Sound's sound) Also, "Flock Of Soul"
is astounding, I can't quite describe what that song does for me, and
that's what makes it so essential, not happy, not sad, IT JUST

The B-sides featured on both volumes of the Tishbite single are good
enough to warrant inclusion on the Milk & Kisses album. Of all the
songs from the album and the various B-sides, my personal fave is Round.
The song has two distinct parts. The first features one of Robin's most
dreamy guitar riffs and sparkling vocals by Liz to date. A couple
bridges into the track and it is evident that the energy of the song is
building. Sure enough, Robin signals the release of that pent-up emotion
with a beautiful pluck of his unusually fluid guitar, and we are off to
a a stunningly operatic vocal by Liz and some perfectly shivering
atmospherics by Robin. The pattern is so successful in its impact that
the next track, An Elan, uses that same kind of build-up, normally
associated with their closing album tracks, and has an equally amazing
impact when Liz's high-pitched wail and Robin's densely- layered guitar
usher in the finale. Way cool stuff. For all of those people who think
their collections end with the Milk & Kisses album -- it's their

Even though you'll own exactly three copies of the song entitled
"Tishbite" this pair of EP/CD's is well worth the cost. The two discs
(one blue, one yellow) contain two extra tracks beside "Tishbite" which
is slight variation from the album track. The blue disc has two tracks
called "An Elan" and "Round" -- both good in their own right. "An Elan"
seques into a full-on Fraserfest after put you in trance. "Round" is a
great song that really showcases Liz' singing ability - lot's of
gorgeous highs and a few discernible lyrics. The second CD, (Yellow) has
two defining songs "Primitive Heart" and "Flock of Soul". These two
songs blow me away every time with their tightly produced walls o'sound.
The gorgeous "Primitive Heart" shoulda been on the album. Liz sings with
amazing clarity and nuance, as usual! Must haves for any serious-minded
Cocteauphile, you know.

We all know what a great song Tishbite is, but what about the b
sides? Well, this reveiwer's fave was Round, from CD2. The way Liz
repeats the word BECAUSE 40 times at the uplifting conclusion to the
song, is one of those typical feelgood Cocteau moments! Flock Of Soul is
the highlight of CD1; a kind of Eperdu type song, which has a mood all
of it's own, to fit with how your feeling at the time, I guess!
Primitive Heart, from the same CD, at first may sound alarmingly
"normal" but give it time, and you will realise that no other band could
carry such a song off like the Cocteau Twins do! As for An Elan, this
one greatly annoys me, but it has it's fans, so that is all I shall
