Prog Reviewer
4 stars Coil declared that with this album they were exploring "lunar music" instead of their usual "solar music"; in practice this means a much greater emphasis on contemplative dark ambient and less on harsh, abrasive industrial sounds than listeners have grown to expect from them. At points the end result is much the same - creepy spoken-word intonations over eerie musical backing - but there's parts where they get this interesting electronic groove going to the point where they even start to sound like an occult Ozric Tentacles. Not a genre-transforming album, and perhaps not even the radical transformation it was billed as, but an interesting late-period Coil piece nonetheless.
Warthur | 4/5 |
