Oh man, Sara Dale's Sensual Massage #4 is worth the price of admission alone, but Proto-Protection also on this set?!

A no-brainer, really. No self-respecting Coil fan will want to be without this disc (or the other 15, for that matter)

Threshold Archives keeps flooding the market with useless compilations containing stuff thats already out there and inferior outttakes and remixes. These releases are confusing and respectless in the context of Coil's body of work.

Very sweetie melodies from Coil. It is interesting as a part of history, as a contrast material to all other industrial bands and as album which you can play with your childrens, parents or friends who are not involved in inustrial music.

Only interesting if you want to travel back to the early 90s. Tracks for Brainwashed were dispensable when they were released and have not aged well. Total unessential collection.
