Can I ^this the OP?
But I hate her vocals. I always thought Cocteau Twins would have been a lot better without her. *ducks*
her voice is the driving instrument in every single song. Her accents on words and things are what stick in your mind, not the melodies. Heck, I don't even know half the things she is saying and I still try singing along. I think that's what's so amazing about her vocals - you don't even have to understand what she's saying, her delivery is enough and gives you more of an emotional response than words ever could.
She's better. But Lisa Gerrard comes in a close second.
she's no Betty from The Archies.
Goosebumps when she sang Baby It's You by The Shirelles.
