Treasure is the third studio album by Scottish alternative rock band Cocteau Twins. It was released on 1 November 1984 by 4AD. With this album, the band settled on what would, from then on, be their primary lineup: vocalist Elizabeth Fraser, guitarist Robin Guthrie and bass guitarist Simon Raymonde. This new lineup also coincided with the development of the ethereal sound associated with the band's music.

Cocteau Twins were founded in Grangemouth, Scotland in 1980 by Robin Guthrie, Will Heggie and Elizabeth Fraser. Will Heggie departed the group in 1983, and Simon Raymonde joined in 1984. Over the course of sixteen years and more than a dozen records, they became famous for their trademark ethereal soundscapes and soaring vocal melodies that influenced subsequent generations of post-punk musicians. The group officially disbanded in 1998 while recording the follow-up album to the 1996 record Milk and Kisses.

Before Cocteau Twins released their perfect sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas, in 1990, they had spent the previous decade building a discography as innovative and amorphous as, say, Bowie in the 1970s or Aphex Twin in the 1990s. Their catalogue of curiosities sounded nothing like what had come before. Elizabeth Fraser’s voice could do anything and did everything, groaning like a rusty switchblade being opened, soothing like a dopamine flood in the brain, performing runs like Mariah Carey and Maria Callas combined. But Treasure Hiding is sometimes just good, its miscellany confirming suspicions that the Twins sometimes settled for spinning their celestial wheels. Nevertheless, revelations abound. The second shock of Evangeline was the sound.

Treasure is the third studio album by Scottish rock band Cocteau Twins. It was released on 1 November 1984 by record label 4AD. This new lineup also coincided with the development of the ethereal sound associated with the band’s music. The album reached No. 29 on the UK Albums Chart, becoming the band’s first UK Top 40 album, and charted for eight weeks.

Eno was just coming off the recording of U2’s breakthrough album The Unforgettable Fire, which he co-produced with Daniel Lanois. The recording of Treasure was done under time constraints, not the ideal situation for a band used to come into the studio with no songs ready for recording. Simon Raymonde recalls: I remember it wasn’t the easiest record to make and it seemed to us very un-finished.
