Prog Reviewer
4 stars Coil entered the 1990s by drawing on more accessible strands of electronic music - then- current trends in dance music in particular to produce an album with a subtle balance of Coil's trademark esoteric industrial explorations and material which manages to be approachable and accessible whilst at the same time sounding decidedly uncommercial. Enhanced by the presence of numerous guest musicians - in particular, a womens' chamber micro-orchestra of Audrey Riley, Jane Fenton, Julia Girdwood, Jos Pook, and Sue Dench add a little gravitas to the excellent Chaostrophy - the album has a cohesive sound with the only discordant note being the cover art, which for my part suggests something more medieval and folky than we get here. Expect the unexpected, though, and it'll be delivered.
