I doubt the validity of this statement, or at least the inspiration behind it.

We all know he actually meant he wants to start listening to Lacuna Coil.

They are one of the most consistent metal bands out there today so I don't blame him.

Horse Rotorvator, Love's Secret Domain, and Scatology are the "pop industrial/electronic" works that I'm most fond of. There's also the appendix albums, Gold Is the Metal with the Broadest Shoulders and Stolen & Contaminated Songs, which you'll like if you like the main albums. Horse Rotorvator and Gold Is the Metal are my favorites.





Coil is incredibly varied, though. It's always experimental electronic music, but it's all wildly different from the last.

To be honest, even though I've been a fan for years and own most of the CDs, I find it kind of overwhelming to get through it all, so I'm not terribly familiar with some of the albums. I've heard 'em all, and know the songs when I hear them, but when I try to think what songs/sounds are where, my mind gets hazy.

Some of my favorites that I've grown most familiar with are The Remote Viewer




Worship the Glitch




Musick to Play in the Dark 1 and 2




Black Antlers




and the post-Jhonn Balance's death albums The Ape of Naples and The New Backwards, which are remixes and recreations of material Coil were doing in the early to mid '90s for Trent Reznor's Nothing Records label.






Some of the original demos are available on the Backwards demo, and most of it's pretty Coil-ish, though it's funny to hear them doing a bit of the Nine Inch Nails sound for this track:

What is the most accessible? I know most of it probably isn't, but I'd like to start with whatever will get me hooked. Give me one or two album names.

The poppy early stuff. Love's Secret Domain is possibly their most accessible. It's kind of the in-between album: has the pop structures of their old music, but shows a lot of the more ambient electronic sounds of the later stuff.







Horse Rotorvator is probably their second most accessible, and my favorite (an industrial must-have).
