Swans have announced details of a new album, The Glowing Man, out on Mute / Young God (N America) on 17 June 2016. The Glowing Man, announced as the last alb... I like your ratings of TGM. No middling songs at all and The Glowing Man track might be my favorite of all 3 albums because it almost catches the lightning-in-a-bottle intensity and dynamism of their live shows. The album is like the perfect condensation of the reunion band up to that point. In the two hours that To Be Kind occupies, you could listen to the first three Stooges albums and still have 15 minutes spare (there’s a track on To Be Kind that is longer than the entirety of Raw Power – that’s not even a lie). You could listen to the first Swans record three times in two hours.

If you look up Swans' '14 European tour you will see how many consecutive shows they have lined up with few breaks in between. Considering this, I cannot believe how great of a show they put on. If you're a Swans fan and have the chance to go see them live, I would not miss the opportunity! Read more Report as inappropriate At two hours in length, To Be Kind shows Michael Gira’s Swans are as serious, demanding and extreme in 2014 as they were back in the early ‘80s when their music was either greatly praised or harshly condemned. There is little middle ground for this group and anyone spooked by the 12-1/2 minute Howlin’ Wolf Tribute “Just A Little Boy” should probably not go forward.

Swans began to garner an audience in Europe.
