It was ranked 73 by Pitchfork Media in its list of the Top 100 Albums of the 1980s. The cover to Horse Rotorvator was shot by the band and depicts the bandstand located in Regent's Park, London, which was subject to the Hyde Park and Regent's Park bombings four years prior to the album.

Horse Rotorvator ‎(LP, Album, TP, W/Lbl). Coil's second album was released in five different colours - piss yellow, shit brown, blood red, spunk white/clear, blue - as well as black, and the title was inspired by a dream which jjohn balance (geoff rushton) had, involving a horse's jawbone being used as a plough. I was the label manager of k422 (of which, force and form was a subsidiary) at the time of it's production and release, and spent a long time ensuring - as per geoff, sleazy and stephen's wishes - the correct shades of vynil were achieved.

Out of all of the coil albums, Horse Rotorvator is generally considered the band's Holy Grail. The album is so harsh and destructive, yet very emotional and touching. The album's leading track The Anal Staircase Starts out chaotic and let's you know that this won't be a happy album. Though the name is a bit silly, the song couldn't be more serious.

On the group's second full album, Coil continue the refinement of brute noise and creepily serene arrangements into a truly modern psychedelia, from tribal drumming and death march guitars to disturbing samples and marching band samples and back.
