Why the hell is Filth sixth? The whole order is strange. Too few Swans fans on BEA I guess

Swans have always been a band I wanted to like, but I have never been able to. They feel to me like a more sophisticated marylon manson; trying to rely on shock value for really no other purpose than to be edgy. And I know it's "the point" of no wave, but their music just never goes anywhere. Again, I wished I liked them, and respect those who are able to

My problem with Swans is that their music is so great and original, nothing can come close to them. Good luck trying to find similar music. The Seer is the greatest feat of music I have heard and To Be Kind is the most interesting and exciting music I have listened to.
