Lost Beyond Telling is a full length series of re-interpretations culled out of those fragments; what the precise choices are I am not privy to but I can tell you this: what Coil began on the bonus cd-r for the seasonal singles is very much alive and thrives gorgeously on here. Again, there's no direct line between the two but there is something strangely familiar in the noises which come out of my speakers while I listen to this. Sometimes its a collection of droning menace and then at others I find the enchanting echoes and ritualistic near serpentine flicks of highly manipulated bells... or are they voices, I could swear I hear someone talking very very softly as though the intent of their words has been buried beneath so much electronic machination. I really am held rapt by what I'm hearing here as this surely must be an ambient epic.

There is also a visual side to this outfit which I have not seen as of yet but I plan on addressing this. Can what they've caught under the lens come close to what I'm seeing when I close my eyes? I have no doubt it will exceed my expectations but until then I am quite content to listen along to these masterful musicians as they alter and re-shape the scenery all around us. Go into your own private realm, they seem to say. Take council with your thoughts, give them substance. It sometimes pays off quite impressively when you just strike out into the unknown, step away from your burdensome train of thought and throw off the shackles of routine.

Somewhere between where I live and the coast there is a road which this album may well have been drawn out from. One begins in the cities, progressing through numerous freeway interchanges and then arrives at a barren stretch of desolate, deserted two lane asphalt. There is nothing out there save the occasional lights of a settlement, endless mile after mile of rusted, warped barbed wire but through the gloaming skies you can make out an unbroken series of wire raised high above your eyes. The one link with the outside world, the tenuous thread back to civilization. These are the Fragments of Night, indeed. Don't say you have not been thoroughly advised, this set of releases dissolves the waking life you lead into a somnambulist's paradise...a mercurial dominion of omnipotent reflections.
