  • Summary: Bernhard Fleischmann's latest work utilizes amplified guitar and other "conventional" instruments in an electronic context.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. The Humbucking Coil's captivating soundscapes evoke more emotion via machines than most bands can with "real" instruments. [Mar 2006, p.138]
  2. This increased humanism lends Fleischmann’s compositions an evolutionary sense of dynamism, thawing out his stern soundscapes.
  3. The Humbucking Coil doesn't really tread any new ground for Fleischmann, but it's another enjoyable and solid little release in his discography.
  4. Fleischmann goes to the same well perhaps a little too often here… but if the well is full of something that tastes good, why wouldn’t you go there as often as you can?
  5. 70
    A mesmeric 45 minutes. [Mar 2006, p.122]
  6. The tracks fail to hang together in a convincing way -- often giving the impression that they were more or less strung together on a whim.
  7. A languid mood piece with discreet variations, Coil is a pleasant, if homogeneous, listening experience.
