My favourite Swans I know Gira hates it but for me it flows and ebbs magnificently but with menace everywhere

Awful pressing, Lifeless and dull. Why is 1972 even allowed to touch music, let alone distribute it?

The far superior-sounding original pressing is easily available for only slightly more than this crap pressing.

I listened to this for the first time recently and was quite pleasantly surprised, as I've read some scathing reviews of this album so I wasn't expecting a lot. I like it. It's by no means the best Swans record, but it's certainly not bad at all. I've played it several times since and enjoy it more each time. Some really great songs on here, especially "God Damn The Sun".

I think Bill Laswell made the Swans a bit more appealing to new listeners with this LP. This LP turned me on to Swans.

I love Swans.
I think Michael Gira is a genius.
This LP is a turd.
