The most painfully beautiful, terroristic tones to ever crush the eardrums and musical virginity of the uninitiated. The older hurt physically, but the later crushes your soul.

Did you ever consider that your brain and personality is bland and boring because this song is not. Your a tone deaf troublemaker that can't even use Pandora properly. What a schmuck
Report as inappropriate
Teej, I do have a life. We all have differing musical tastes and sometimes it appears that there is a flaw in the algorithims that Pandora uses to pick tracks. They put bands that in my opinion suck and annoy me on my station and I give them a thumbs down. I didn't find Swans, they found me. My stations are bland and whitebread ?
Hahahaha that's a good one.

This band changed my life! Filth was the first thing I ever heard by them and, at the time, I had never heard anything like it. Been hooked ever since. They also got me into Jarboe. I love her as well.

Bobonnit, I've been seeing your comments on a lot of artist profiles and you really need to get a life. If you're going to call yourself a critic, you have to do more than write 'get these losers offa my Pandora on every artist that doesn't appeal to your narrow musical taste. Believe it or not, Pandora wasn't made exclusively for you. How did you even find a great band like Swans on here anyways? I can't imagine them coming up on either of your two bland, white-bread stations.

I hate this depressing and droll sound. What's up with that ? Get offa my Pandora losers

I only like some of Swans but they're an example of why I ditched regular radio and went online. No turning back.

I always felt like everything up to their 3 or so most recent albums had too much repetition

soundtracks is indeed excellent, but the seer is even better. sonically is fascinating and it encapsulates its own cohesive universe and its own logic.

soundtracks for the blind will always be one of the greatest releases of all time

You know how everyone says that anybody that heard the Velvet Undergrounds ' first record in '67 ran out and started a band...that' s what happened to me when I first heard the Filth album. Brilliant.

Oh poor Jon Mayhue...The Burning World was not just a bunch of 60's covers. One song is and that's Can't Find My Way Home - 4:48 by Steve Winwood. The rest of the songs are all of original Swans construction , produced by Bill Laswell and it's just a great album...if you can find it, go get it.

A long forgotten unique band that never got their due.Type O Negative should've taken them on a few tours as an opening act.

New album is pretty good. Buy it if you can, maybe Gira will be convinced to make another if it does well.

remember when they were scary when i saw them at first ave.-prince' s nightclub in minneapolis before they became folk rock...

Thank you, Thom Jurek for a respectable bio. Also, Holy ess word! Swans are effin back!!
Report as inappropriate
Steve Huey apparently hasn't the energy for research. M. Gira was in Circus Mort in 1976, disbanded after one album. Swans appeared in 1979. The Burning World was an album with 60's rock covers and originals. Their discography ends in 1998 with Swans Are Dead, the live album version of their last studio album, Soundtrack For The Blind(which has amazing electronic experimentat i o n adding yet another layer to their constantly evolving wall of sound).

One of the greatest bands to never make it, though they made incredible music for 15 years and so F'N glad to hear they are back together again. I hope it sticks. Only seen them 3 or 4 times, but they awe inspiring. Gira's Angels of Light are good, most of it. Buy it!

I first heard Swans in 1989. They opened my ears up to experiencing difficult music. Without them, I would've remained an aural illiterate.

the "similar artists" listed above were bands...and great ones at that...the Swans were much, much more...if you never experienced them, you can not understand. If you are this far, however, your mouth would have been open half the time

That All Music Guide write-up is so vastly inaccurate and incomplete. Swans early music was like no other, and they kept that rhythmic brutality even as they layered more melodic parts over it in later recordings. Steve Huey, whoever he is, did a s**tty job.
