Swans – Die Tür ist zu (1996)

March 23, 2024

I’ve always had a stand-offish relationship with Die Tur Ist Zu because well, what’s the fucking point in this thing? “Helpless Child” (slightly extended here) and “All Lined Up” sang in German is little more than a novelty, and the hodge podge of other cuts and live bits are just… well, just there. Considering SFTB is such a gargantuan and groundbreaking album, this “EP” stands entirely in its shadow.

Don’t get me wrong, nothing on here is bad, in fact it’s all incredible. I just don’t know why anyone would listen to this over Soundtracks.
