In the early 1300's, Dante Alighieri became increasingly underwhelmed with language. He felt Latin (the written language) was artificial and furthermore, all the "natural languages" (languages used for speaking, opposed to Latin) were vulgar. He believed that this all had stemmed from the blasphemy of Babel, where God's (and Adam's) perfect, true language had splintered and fragmented and probably died. After years of research Dante decided it was impossible to find the first and perfect language so he vowed to make one himself.

"4 Calender Cafe" is a must have album for songs like "Bluebeard" and "Know Who You Are at Every Age", any compilation with the song "Spangle Maker" on it such as "Pink Opaque" is a must have, and of course "Heaven or Las Vegas" is a well known Cocteau Twins classic for 10 absolutly perfect songs such as "Iceblink Luck",...
