The second Icon of Coil album 'The Soul is in the Software' was a classic of the genre, ranking alongside the best of fellow industrial/dance artists such as Apoptygma Berzerk, VNV Nation and Covenant. Amazingly, 'Machines are Us' is even better, without doubt one of the best albums in the style ever released.
The album is full of tracks guaranteed to be dancefloor fillers at any industrial club night - from the trancey 'Consumer' and 'Existence in Progress' to the 80's electro influenced 'Shelter' and 'Wiretrip'. However, those who like slower, more atmospheric industrial grooves will not be disappointed with track like 'Faith:not important' and 'Sleep:less'.
Simply a must-buy CD for fans of Apoptygma Bezerk, VNV Nation, Covenant, Seabound and the like, and would surely be enjoyed by any fans of trance, techno and industrial.
