    not the best of Swans but something in this album is very attractive. Perhaps I can't express it the way I want. It was turning point for them, imprint of their aspiration to change style from rebellion against the thing they called filth to smth spiritual. From what they hate to what they value. First was doomed to a bright but short existence, second had a future (in fact still has). This LP combines elements of both directions and this is the reason it is so powerful and impressive. But I think when they concentrated on one thing, like on Filth or Annihilator, they reached even more

    Except Disintegration is about 10000000000 times easier to listen to.

    I've always considered this album the same species as The Cure's Disintegration. [2]

    "Michael Gira will fucking throw a brick through your family" has to be the best thing I've ever read on this website.
