Kinda forgot about this one. Yes, I'm sure the album will be something special.

Thanks for posting this!

it wasn't mean to be good...i think. the story behind that song is that some perv in New Orleans tryed to abuse her but she resist him...and Gira wanted her to "tell" with her own voice.

‘When Will I Return?’, described by MOJO as a ;revelation’, was written, explains Michael Gira "specifically for Jennifer Gira to sing. It’s a tribute to her strength, courage, and resilience.’

‘The World Looks Red / The World Looks Black :

from Gira : uses some words I wrote in 1982 or so that Sonic Youth used for their song ‘The World Looks Red’, back in the day. The music and melody used here in the current version are completely different.

The buzz surrounding this record is greatly diminished from the last two. Wondering if the bad press had a bigger effect on people than I thought.

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.

Ok, why the fuck aren't we talking about this? Radiohead got like 30 pages of replies, ranging from praise to abject condemnation to complete and utter fucking horseshit spam.
The last two Swans albums were communal favorites on this board, and I would wager that they are either the 2nd or 3rd most popular band for SYG users in general... behind SY of course, and maybe Low.

So what the fuck is going on exactly?

I have listened to this few times from Spotify and I think it's quite good album but not as good as previous two Swans albums. I kinda thought they would go further awayfrom To Be Kind than they did.

Nevertheless, I like it and finally ordered triple vinyl yesterday.

Wait, you think it sounds like To Be Kind?

THANK YOU!

It's definitely up there with Father, but below Seer for me. Seer is as close to a perfect album as Swans have ever made, at any point in their career. But The Glowing Man is definitely something special, and I'm itching to talk about it with some folks.

I liked the Seer a lot, still think The Apostate is their best post-reunion song but every time I put the album on, I feel like there's something wrong with the mix. To Be Kind was much more spacious, too bad some of the songs were just lazy Swans routine. The Glowing Man seems to stand somewhere in between, benefitting from both previous endeavors.

On a different note, Gira's lyrics seem to be getting worse and worse, like he's really got nothing to sing about anymore.

Show in Toronto last night was good.

Setlist something like :

**new song - slamming a note**
No Words/No Thoughts -ish
Screen Shot
The Cloud of Forgetting
The Cloud of Unknowing
Some Things We Do
The Glowing Man

Thor is absent from the current Swans tour Hope he is OK.
He is replaced by a headbanging dude on keyboards. Lots more droning, less percussion at these shows.

It's my understanding that Thor and Swans parted ways.

Thor & Friends is his newest project and they are currently touring Europe.

 



Thor has a new book out:
