Swans – The Glowing Man (2016)

I’m a glowing man I am! Rounding out the trilogy is one thing, but topping or even equaling To Be Kind and The Seer is no easy task. However, in retrospect it’s easy to see how the reformed Swans’ sound became less punishing and more ethereal as the trilogy unfolded.

Glowing Man is, and I apologise for repeating words found elsewhere online, absolutely transcendent. I really can’t think of an easier way to describe this absolute mammoth of a record. Truly, there is nothing else like this on earth. A stunning, stunning record, and if Swans ended here, I’d have been contented.
