^I've thought about ordering that, but I'm like, "do I need another Swans live album? How often will I listen to it?" I have Swans are Dead and The Gate, and both of those are really good (I prefer The Gate's version of 'Frankie M' to the Glowing Man version).
- "Whatever happened to that album?"
- "I broke it, remember? I threw it against the wall, and it like, shattered."

New album is streaming here.

Halfway through and it's my favorite since My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky. A great blend of everything he's been doing for the past two decades.

The new one is great. Enjoying it way more on the first spin than any of the last incarnation’s LPs.

Feels like an undercooked, overwrought Angels of Light on first listen. Mind you, those five albums set a high bar.

I need to listen the latter albums, the last one I have is to be Kind but haven't listened to it throughly.
Call me heretic but I don't like The Seer! I listened it again yesterday trying to like it (I have the LP)
and for me two of the three vinyls are in excess, it's not I don't like that kind of long building up songs, but it this case they don't do the trick for me. It surprises me people talk so highly about it and it gets a third position at besteveralbums.com. I was a big fan of Swans in the 90s and liked everything including the earlier albums, maybe Children of God and Filth were my favorite ones.
