"The fourth 'official' Coil CD. It replaces Backwards (scheduled for Trent Reznor's Nothing label) as the follow up to 1991's Love's Secret Domain. The speed and spontaneity of the recordings might have resulted in a leaner, more sparing production, but Musick is still hallmarked by the special care Coil take in minting new, idiosyncratic sounds. Working through sleep-deprived states, in which body and mind simultaneously register every slight, shuddering change caused by the mixing desk's variations in timbre, tone colour and tempo, Coil have come up with a particularly unstable molecule as the base unit of Musick. The way these are strung together in loose silvery ribbons gives the album its special, weirdly ectoplasmic feel."-Biba Kopf/The Wire
