    What the real value of a signed copy (by Michael Gira himself) of this?

      Is I’ll Swallow You on any of these vinyl pressings?
      • MEllODrOnE's avatar
        Yes. Sounds larger than life. Huge soundstage amplifies the classic Swans drone into another atmosphere, filling these tracks with a raw intensity. Beautiful music. Beautiful sound. Overall nice package with the thick card inners but my records have slight edge warps. Pressing could have been a bit better, some scuffing and surface noise on the new vinyl. Don’t have an original but I have other original early Swans albums and I’ll tell you this sounds just as good if not better than most of them. Hype sticker states, “Lovingly and completely remastered from original mixes” and you most certainly get the feeling it was. Those background vocals harmonies just soar!

          To whom it may concern, I am currently listening to this remaster on Spotify and I am 99% sure that this is a "needledrop" remaster. I hear various clicks and pops on several songs here, especially "Our Love Lies". Super disappointing. I guess if you buy the new vinyl version this won't be too big of an issue, but it's extremely annoying on streaming. I bet it'd be irritating on CD as well. I guess I'll be holding onto my original 1987 pressing.

            Everything is perfect, but on side 3 the tracklist is listed as side 2 including Sex God Sex, Blood and Honey, Like A Drug. The physical disc is correct. No other issues, great release.

              No misprint on my gatefold, just an amazing sounding record of this, one of the acmes of Swans' long career.

                This 2020 reissue plays perfect. No issues other than the mp3 download card was stuck inside the sleeve and was difficult to remove. Almost ripped record sleeve trying to remove.

                  My side 3 record label says "3" but has the tracks from side 2 listed (sex god sex, blood and honey, like a drug); the actual vinyl is correct.
