I saw Swans twice on this tour, whilst nothing compares to the actual experience this live album is as close as you will get, and its more easily available than the brutally merciless prices of "The Gate" or "Not Here/Not Now" which like "We rose from our bed should get a proper release outside the hand stamped envelope versions.

I am fairly sure the track listing here is incorrect.

Any hope for a vinyl release? The last 4 Swans albums have been more like classical compositions, using the tools of rock, industry, and film music; to create multipart pieces of music that should be heard in their entirety, rather than just rockin' out to any one track.

The Knot is one of the best songs i have heard in my life, thank you Mr. Gira.

This is a fantastic live album, but plenty of copies are still being sold on the Swans' current tour. Don't fall victim to the price-gougers on this site.

Still available at younggod page for 25$, I guess more than 3000 were pressed and thats great, many have chance to buy it at normal price no need to overpay yet.

A quick note for those considering purchasing this, the signed edition, from European sellers. €70.00 may seem steep, but I'd like to mention that it's not too inflated. For my copy, from YGR to Europe, there were €26.00 in customs fees. So, those fees on top of purchase price plus the shipping / handling fee of $16.00 is about on the money. Not taking advantage like some other vultures on eBay right now. That said, I'll be keeping my copy of this beauty.

This is an incredible live record! the sound is perfect, almost sounds like a studio album.
