Positively Weird
Ulfster | 07/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As another of the "Seasons"-Series, this is probably the weirdest - and possibly the most potent of the four releases. Unfortunately, the track listing on the Amazon page is stightly erroneous, so I take the liberty of correcting:1. Bee Stings2. Glowworms/Waveforms3. Summer Substructures4. A Warning From The Sun (for Fritz)This EP, with a running length of approx. 25 min, offers four different kinds of music in four songs that could not be more various in their respective styles: "Bee Stings" is almost conventional, a combination of electronics and beautiful strings, whilst "Glowworms/..." is close to ambient droning - which is not to say it is not highly interesting. Even more multilayered than aforementioned song is "Summer Substructures", that takes more than a bow towards Schoenberg. If Coil ever did a song that really deserved the label "sidereal", living up to both possible linguistic interpretations of the word, this is it. The last "tune" almost does not deserve this title, as it is a very chaotic, almost (but not quite) unlistenable collection of noise and shrieking vocals, making the listener more than just a little bit uneasy - which in itself shows it's brilliance: When was it the last time a song/tune/whatever really made you think whether you could stand it any longer? (and NO, I don't mean Dancefloor!)"
Summer Solstice

(5 out of 5 stars)

track listing (slighty corrected from above) is as follows :
1. Bee Stings
2. Glowworms/Waveforms
3. Summer Substructures
4. A Warning From The Sun (for Fritz)
second installment of the equinox solstice series, and probably my favorite. great vocal manipulation, great poetry, very creative sounds and music. this series is limited and has already been deleted, make sure you get them before they are gone."
