4 stars I have never actually listened to any works of Coil. I have heard of them and I definitely seen their album covers, but I never actually listened to their albums, at least not fully. But on one day someone on Discord recommended this album to me since I liked more weird music. I thought, why not, how about I listen to something new for a change. I didn't know what to expect from the album, but I was eager to find out. One thing I have noticed with the album is that it had a very morbid and almost grief like sound to it (probably enhanced after the death of John Balance). It also has a really pretty experimental edge to it in the vocals and production value. It really feels like a album for the dead and for those beyond the grave. But the album also feels like a sort of 7 stages of grief in it's sound where some songs sound like they are sad, in denial, angry, and soon, accepting. This is definitely an interesting album and definitely one worth checking out if you like more experimental music.
