The word that comes to mind while listening to this album is "beast".

Some of the weirdest stuff of the new decade is here, band sounds interesting from what I'm seeing.

Looks like this album is having a bad moment, 518 to 548??
Well, to me it's pretty underrated on this site, the whole band needs more recognition.

A two-hour beast full of drones, bone-crushing crescendos, and mind-numbing repetition. It will leave you completely exhausted yet amazed.

Best: The Seer
Worst: Daughter Brings The Water

Swans "The Seer" has something special that I can't quite pin. I think the best way to put it is that it's another example of Gira being a pure tease, allowing for as much as fifteen minutes of brooding, amazing buildup before dropping a fucking bomb on your ears.

From DraganDragovic 04/26/2015 20:57
A true masterpiece that combines darkness, beauty, epicness, and repetive instrumentation that just build and build up dynamics. At the same time you feel chased/paranoid and blown away by the actual deep meaning behind it that just strike you in a beautiful way.
Best Swans album - no doubt about it!

Nice! "Song for a Warrior" was a beautiful song, a moment of beauty among a sea of genius cacophony. Overall a great release, but I think they improved with "To Be Kind" later on.

From Radioscope 11/29/2014 18:10
Call it repetitive, call it minimalistic, call it insane. The Seer is simply genius, the whole two hours. The Seer is like a monster, and when I listen to it I feel alone and insignificant tiny midget lice looking at a giant creature so big I am almost unable to look at it right in the eye while it says to me "I see it all, I see it all, I see it all"... It is simply huge, simple as that.

Favorite track: "Mother Of The World". If somebody told me I had to choose a song and put it loud enough to get completely deaf to, I would choose this one without doubt.

Every critic uses the same word because it's the most fitting: massive. Getting through it feels like a lot of work, but it's rewarding as anything. A Piece Of The Sky is an absolutely beautiful song.
