"Queens Of The Circulating Library" stands alongside "Time Machines" and Nurse With Wound's "Soliloquy For Lilith" as a post-industrial pinnacle of sensory-warping long-form drone. Crafted by the distilled duo of Thighpaulsandra and John Balance, the 49-minute piece unfurls in swirling, cyclical waves, tidal as much as textural, channeling the spirit of levitational minimalism pioneered by La Monte Young. Touted as the first part in "a continually mutating series of circulating musickal compositions" upon its initial release in 2000, the album remains a compelling case study in Coil's exceptional capacity for mutation and extremes. A supreme sonic embodiment of the slogan on the sleeve of "Time Machines", two years prior: "Persistence is all".
