Review...

Overall impression: excellent. The 3rd installment of the Unnatural History series, this one covers compilation and outtake material from 1985 - 1996, 6/10ths from the 90's. The amazing diversity of this always intriguing band is again put on display here. The 80's material is similar to the 80's albums, such as "Horse Rotorvator" and the 90's material is much like the "Stolen & Contaminated Songs" cd. A little bit of every style Coil has touched on is represented on this cd; beats, ambience, vocals, noise, misc sounds, orchestral, etc, etc. "First Dark Ride" and "Baby Food" are amazing journeys in sound, "Music for Commercials" are short and interesting, "Panic" is crude, "Neither His Nor Yours" is quirky, "Feeder" is a beautifully stark and noise filled collaboration, "Wrong Eye" is an early sketch of "Windowpane", "Meaning What Exactly" is an extended intro for "Things Happen", "Scope" is noisy and "Lost Rivers of London" is an almost spoken piece by John with intriguing musical backing. I think I like this one better than the previous one, UH II, but both are very good. Really good artwork on this one by Nick Blinko and Coil. It's hard to say if this is a good place to start a Coil collection, due to the diversity of the back catalogue and this collection itself, but it's certainly a must for any devoted Coil fan. Plus, it's easily attainable (but rather price-y) unlike the out of print "Horse Rotorvator" and "Love's Secret Domain" albums. - Mark Weddle
