        Does anyone know if this release (black vinyl US 1987) had a lyric sheet included? thanks
        Trying to figure out if I lost mine :(

          Doesn't sound nearly as bad as I was expecting - just wish the vinyl artwork was used instead!

            The classical music samples used in "The Anal Staircase" are taken from "The Rite Of Spring" by Stravinsky. I noticed it while listening to Igor Stravinsky - Leonard Bernstein / London Symphony Orchestra - The Rite Of Spring: halfway through side 2, there's a part that has the exact bits in it as used in "The Anal Staircase", especially in the intro of that Coil track. They even match when you play the two together on a DJ setup.

              The first Coil works I ever heard were their reworkings on NIN'S "Further Down the Spiral" when I was 13. And they made me unnerved in the best of ways. Few months down the road I found a vhs wax trax! video sampler containing the "Tainted Love" video. It followed suit in it's darkness, direly serious take on what most knew to be an 80's club hit, promoting AIDS awareness. I was blown away. So being in a small town and too young to work, a year went by and I was handed a cassette recording of Horse Rotor Vator. Again, floored. Disturbing but oddly accessible, there has not been an album like it before or since. It demands the best audio quality possible. The part in "Blood from the Air" as a part of the music begins to wind down, oh but the ruckus does not, where it's just the sound of adults and children wailing and crying and vanishes, then the music picks back up....that few seconds alone is far darker than a thousand of these metal bands who think themselves as frightening. This is the power of Coils Horse Rotor Vator. This is a staple "industrial" album for any who love their music deep, complex, original and with a touch of beautiful horror. Coil scares Clive Barker. Trent Reznors bitter ultra pissed off darkness claims "there would probably be no NIN if it weren't for Horse Rotor Vator." That's just two testaments of it's inspirational scarring on the face of modern entertainment. Peter and John are sadly missed but thankfully leave a large body of work for fans of non shit to enjoy. Don't be a bitch. Add this album to your collection

                buyer beware, i saw this in a paris record store and almost bought it bc it looks nearly identical to a real pressing. the same store also had bootlegs of lsd and a thousand lights.

                  Really good sound quality, but quite poor quality control on this version.

                  Surface noise becomes noticably quickly due to alot of quiet sections, mine has tiny multiple surface scratches which cause alot of crackles and pops.
                  Mine also has a bubble in the plastic, which seems like an manufacturing error.
                  It plays over the bubble without skipping but makes a really loud "pop" sound.

                  Though even with those issues, the music cuts through the noise and sounds suprisingly clean.

                      Nice quiet pressing, but it's not quite black; it's actually translucent amber, as seen when held up to light.
