Gatefold double LP version. Includes insert and download code. After the groundbreaking release of 1990's Love's Secret Domain album, Coil were not dormant; their main project was Backwards, which was started in 1992, updated considerably between 1993 and 1995, and transferred in 1996 to New Orleans, where it was finished in the magic of the Nothing Studios of Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails). The album saw the fruition of Jhonn Balance's recent vocal-coaching, which produced haunting, passionate vocals while reaching new heights. Now, in 2015, 23 years after its initiation, these tracks have been beautifully preserved by Danny Hyde and are finally available in highest quality audio. Differing substantially from the later, remixed incarnation, The New Backwards(2008), Backwards contains the original versions of Coil's much-loved tracks "A Cold Cell" and "Fire of the Mind," which have appeared on various compilations over the years, and are now presented as originally intended. This album is the essential bridge between LSD and the later Musick to Play in the Dark series; an essential conduit to understand the journey that Coil took. 

"An album which previously existed in fragments, scattered across Coil’s latterday catalogue, Backwards was initiated by John Balance and Peter Christopherson in the mid­1990s and was intended to be released via Nothing, the label run by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Adam Harper said: “It’s the best manifestation yet of Coil’s period of transition between rave­influenced structures and slower, dronier material, and it even offers a chance to reflect, via Reznor, on the relationship between Coil and the later generation of industrialists based in the US. ” TheWire Best Albums of 2015
