    so what's wrong with this? allegedly, coil wasn't happy and terminated their relationship, yet it got released anyway. anyone know the story? otherwise, to my ears, this is a fine album!

      The title could refer to Varanasi in India which is known as the City of Light where pilgrimage and death are seen as sacred enhanced by the River Ganges which carries both through the city.

        Mine is identical with identical catalog number but says “Manufactured in Austria” on one of the spines.
