Stark, minimal and grating industrial, from three defining players - John Gosling, John Balance and Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson. Originally released in 1983 only on cassette, then reissued, but edited by Coil years later. These are the full length unedited recordings, and also have two unreleased tracks from Zos Kia’s previous incarnation AKE.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 10th February 2017
This is probably Coil's most primal albums, because it was also one of their earliest releases (originally in 1984). Transparent is without a doubt their most difficult listen, because it is more soundscapes of droning, grinding, and unevenness, rather than conventional "songs". Just like anything by this band, it takes a few listens to appreciate. I enjoy this album immensely, but then again I like "weird things", so I recommend starting with "Musick to Play in the Dark 1, or 2" or "Love's Secret Domain" or one of their earlier works.
