I guess the Cocteau Twins could be filed here? I discovered them through Harold Budd. "Treasures" is the album that appeals most to me. They seem to have a lot of good albums though.

I've never considered them to goth, although I'm sure the fanbase has some overlaps. Treasure is fantastic (although I hope you got the version with the Aikea Guinea EP). Blue Bell Knoll is also great and Heaven or Las Vegas is fabulous, dancing closely to pop territory while maintaining their ethereal uniqueness. Saw them twice in concert and found them equally mesmerizing (sonically as they really did little visually on stage).

I have not yet purchased any album, I was only listening online to them. I am just checking out the last two albums, I like them too. These two are basically easy-listening pop though with their trademarks sounds (voice and guitar).

They have a hell of a lot of EPs too, I wonder if they are worth digging in as well? I listened to "Tiny Dynamine" plus "Echoes In A Shallow Bay", the songs are good but they don't make a cohesive whole like the albums. Haven't heard "Aikea Guinea" yet.

Not every EP is a winner for me. I agree that they can have a good song or two, but tend to trail off. I really enjoy Aikea-Guinea though:
