Solemn, Holy music. The ultimate album from one of the most visionary psychedelic groups of all time. J. Balances's lyrics are confronting the concepts you and I think about in our most private moments. The bare honesty and insight is nothing short of miraculous. Peter creates the best music of his career. World class orchestrations and deeply introspective heavy electronics. This is the Coil album to last the length of time. Amber Rain, The Last Amethyst Deceiver and Fire of the Mind are unutterably haunting invocations of John's death. For any fan of intelligent music- whether it be goth, industrial, ambient, dance, folk, noise, chamber, opera, experimental, classical, this is an absolutely essential recording.
