Swans - Leaving Meaning.

Swans goes for a more ethereal and soft sound compared to their last works which I think works really well mostly. Hums and Annalise are beautiful tracks to open up this album. The Hanging Man, Sunfucker, and My Phantom Limb are my favorite tracks here as they are the most chaotic tracks and Swans has rly mastered that abrasive sound.

Swans - Love of Life

While I liked White Light I wasn’t super crazy bout it and this is just that but worse. A lot of the tracks are even worse then moments on the Burning World but there is still moments where this album shines like on Amnesia and Her. Overall probably won’t ever revisit this as it was just a very boring listen. This folky era of Swans is easily my least favorite.

Half the songs are mid the others are quite good. It’s weird that this was in between Soundtracks for the Blind and then the 3 big boys….
Swans - The Great Annihilator

The Great Annihilator feels like the first full Swans journey and probably the easiest Swans album to listen to besides White Light maybe. I still don’t feel that this album reaches the heights that Children of God reaches and this album is definitely front heavy with the second side being a lil weaker.
Swans - White Light from the Mouth of Infinity

While being way better and way more interesting instrumentally then The Burning World it still doesn’t reach the heights that Children of God reached.
