Horse Rotorvator
Internal Abbatoir | Albuquerque, NM | 04/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Horse Rotorvator was an experiment by Coil. If this was released today, it would probably fall comfortably into the industrial genre. However, Coil were one of the original innovators of the industrial genre. Long before Trent Reznor even had aspirations of forming a group, Coil was churning out great records like this... Purely experimental, not trying to be anything specific. And that is what is great about this kind of music. It doesn't try to fit into any category or genre; it doesn't try to sound one way or another. Not to sound cliche, but this is music from the heart. It focuses on being original rather than another carbon copy.

Some people may think that this music sounds outdated, but I would take it over any of the electro Goth groups of today. Nowadays, bands seem to try too hard to fit into a specific category, as if their music is only made for a particular subgroup of people.

The music of Coil is very diverse and artistic. Just when you think you know what this band is all about they turn and go into a completely different direction.

Highly recommended for people interested in experimental music."

"I got this at the recommendation of somebody, and I must say it's not what I expected. Maybe I just can't appreciate this album, since I lean more towards Metal-Industrial, but I just didn't find it pleasing to listen to. Interesting and creative, yes, but not pleasing; it reminds me of Skinny Puppy, another Industrial band that I couldn't really get into either. It's just not my cup of tea, and I suspect that most people probably won't (or perhaps can't) appreciate it either. There's nothing wrong with it, but it just something I can't enjoy, so I'm giving it 3 stars."
