A really lovely album showcasing examples of Cliff Stapleton's Hurdy-Gurdy music over the past few decades. A nice mixture of 'traditional' HG music, and some nice Dark Ambient stuff. I haven't stopped playing it since I bought it!

Fell in love with Coil in 1990 or so. There's not a duff track on the original album. The remastering has brought out some more of the twisted genius of this album. Too bad Jhonn and Sleazy didn't live long enough to oversee it themselves. Bishop
Where once her playing was essentially representational and descriptive, with 12-string cascades and plaintive vocals standing in for wind and snow, “Nighttime Birds” attempts to give voice to the fingerstyle guitarist’s entire universe at once. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 23, 2019

Such a dense, mystical record with an almost impenetrable shroud of darkness surrounding it. However, once the layers start peeling back, you start seeing the light. It's far away. You'll never touch it. Jean-Francois D. D.
