Although Time Machines wasn't precisely credited to Coil, upon its arrival in early 1998 the CD was the first full-length of new material Balance, Christophersen, et al., released in nearly seven years. An hour-long meditation on drone ostensibly inspired by the psychophenomenological properties of hallucinogenic drugs, Time Machines is constructed entirely from cycling, oscillating synth tones, and continues in the vein of shapeless experimentalism established with Black Light District and Worship the Glitch. Enjoyable, if a mite limited in scope.
