Another brilliant track from the outstanding group. Although it sounded like there was going to be a huge explosion at the end, there wasn’t, so it just sounded like one huge build-up for nothing. Nonetheless, this track’s on-edge tone and eclectic instrumentation really add to the suspense of how the final album will sound!

This album's atmosphere from what I can tell is gonna be similar to The Glowing Man, but still unique. This single shows Swans' abrasive side again and shows the more lyrical side, as Swans don't tend to get very lyrical in their music, here it's quite lyrically charged.

I feel this album as a whole is gonna be a kind of mix of the trilogy and their older stuff, more White Light stuff and I'm all for that. This is definitely a new sound (kind of) for Swans and god am I excited
