This is a really good album so far. I'm enjoying the arrangementa and instrumental portions more than the last album. Shades of SY on "World looks Red..." (probably intentionally).
Of course it's a Fucking behemoth, so I'm barely past the skimming stage, but so far so good. The musical tone reminds me more of Seer than of TBK, which is a good thing.
I can't believe I forgot this album was out until well into the day. What the fuck, man? Am I letting the Gira allegations fuck with my perception of the band? This is the first Swans album of the decade that I haven't been counting down the days for.
I'm going to enjoy letting this one sink in.
