This Cocteau Twins discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Cocteau Twins albums can be found at the top of the list. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Godsmack albums, with the help of your votes.  Formed in 1979 by guitarist Robin Guthrie and bassist Will Hedgie soon after they met Elizabeth Fraser at a dance club in Scotland, the Cocteau Twins soon became one of the most unique indie bands the UK had ever seen up until that point. With Guthrie’s lush, layered guitars and Fraser’s unique, operatic vocal delivery, the band made a strong splash with their debut, Garlands (1982) and produced a critical work of art in Heaven or Las Vegas (1990) before splitting up not long after Milk & Kisses (1996).

If you think the greatest Cocteau Twins album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Cocteau Twins album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
