    Coil’s Musick To Play In The Dark is arguably their most transcendental record, with sonambulant delicacy in the production giving a meditative, prayerlike atmosphere. Most of all though this is carried through dreamlike LP closer „The Dreamer Is Still Asleep“.

    Four seconds shy of ten minutes of whooshing sonics and eery piano, it manages to be at once sparkling and murkily languid, Machen meets Baudelaire in the sunlit ripples of an English chalk stream that leads to the deathly gurlges of a weir. Most of all though it’s Jhon Balance’s sung vocals that give the song such power.

    It’s one of my most listened to songs of recent years, and each time seems to have a different resonance with my mood. There’s something about his poetry here (especially likes like „In ten years‘ time / Who’ll care? Who’ll even remember?“) and the way it breathes its way through headphones on a dark night with an altered mind that can feel like a taunt, an instruction, a warning.“
