"Who'll Fall?" is the same song than "Is Suicide A Solution?" on the 7'' with the same name, no ?

I could be wrong, but wasn't there originally a picture disc edition as well?

The undisputed Lords Of The Remix originally released this second view of "Love's Secret Domain" as a limited edition run, then had second thoughts (much to the despair of the elitists who thought they had an investment in buying a copy from the first run). The original album probably remains COIL's most commercial album to date. This collection could almost be a totally different album - few reference points remain from the original, and I'm almost tempted to say this is actually a superior beast. Styles range from dark rhythmic tribal to sub-classical soundtrack (along the lines of their "Hellraiser" music). Always entertaining, always promising wonders around every corner, they combine such a variety of styles without any one seeming out of place. It may not be the Collectors Item it was originally marketed as, but it surely deserves a place in every collection.

Originally reviewed for Soft Watch.

Truly one of the highlights in an excellent catalog of work, Stolen and Contaminated Songs isn't even a proper "album," but a collection of outtakes from the Love's Secret Domain sessions. And what sessions they were to have such a wealth of superb material that was leftover. Showcasing Coil's diversity, the album veers from the orchestrated classicisms of "Original Chaostrophy" and "Corybantic Ennui" to the slow, mutant lounge shuffle of "Omlagus Garfungiloops" and the utter despair of "Who'll Fall?" The last track there is a highlight, a detuned guitar and phone line noises underscore a harrowing answering machine message from someone who's friend has just committed suicide. Haunting in its execution and utterly compelling. The peak of the album, and one of the band's best songs, "NASA-Arab," is placed in the middle of the album, and like the main pole in a circus tent, supports everything around it. Multiple swirling keyboard lines cross paths with a groovy bassline and the strangest syncopated drums on this planet. Close listening will bring about a trance-like state in the listener. This is a great album for people new to the magic of Coil, easier than Time Machines and better produced than Horse Rotorvator. ~ James Mason, Rovi
