Format: Audio CD
After the brilliant debut New Mother and the follow-up How I Loved You, Michael Gira has pulled off that difficult third one. Palisades with its unusual instrumental flourishes opens the album & is followed by the harsh and dissonant note of All Souls' Rising before the sonic radiance of Kosinski reaches the ears. This is a gem of chiming guitars that are eventually joined by what sounds like violins; haunting imagery and a hypnotic arrangement complete the magic circle.

The Family God is a complex piece containing lovely gentle passages interspersed with louder choruses and intricate instrumentation - it sounds like a flute towards the end. Because She Was is a short 40-second bit of vocals and guitar strumming and the up-tempo Rose Of Los Angeles rocks vigorously whilst the ballad What You Were is graced by tender piano.

Then follows another gem in the form of Sunset Park, a lilting ballad with an infectious tune, rich texture of interacting voices owing to an imaginative vocal arrangement which, together with the repetition of the minimalist lyrics, achieves a mysterious & mesmerizing effect. A children's choir accompanies Gira's aching drawl on the track Wedding, adding an eerie feel to its already strange & experimental stop-start structure.

This beautiful album concludes on an ominous note with the (preferably not) prophetic What Will Come, a melodious ballad with atmospheric instrumentation and an enigmatic spirituality resembling that on Children of God. Shiver me timbers.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Oct. 2011
Format: Audio CD
The first half is given to the backing band, and it sounds like a Beatles revival circa 1968, and is definetly not mon tasse du the. Wistful melodies and chaos grates on the nerve renderings. I must have played this a fair few times and no picture emerges.

Michael is not on great form either. He arrives on song towards the end of the album, and perhaps this would have benefited from him opening and closing. An album for the perfect completist. There is little to save itm other than nearly everything he did beforehand being impeccable.

I will play it again to see what emerges, but so far not a great deal. sorry.

Brillant album. Very different from the Swans.

Prepare to be surprised! 3 Dec. 2004
By musicdoesnthavetobeboring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow. You never know where this album is going to take you. From the opening track it's a journey into a unique and unorthodox musical vision. Taking cues from Great Annihilator-era Swans it's much more than a incremental step in development - this album's a quantum leap in terms of depth and complexity. At times it brings to mind Firewater - if Firewater had lived lives of heroin addiction, pain and misery. Such comparisons are only fleeting though; this album has a sound all of its own. Turn it up loud and go with it...and look forward indeed to hearing what a choir at an insane asylum might sound like on track 7 :)

A true original. I love it, when's the next one?!

Claustrophobic and Repulsively Honest 14 Mar. 2003
By semanticfelon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After the relatively restrained and dignified 'How I loved you,' I expected this album to be a further move towards the Leonard Cohen/Nick Drake mood that Gira so masterfully invoked with the first two AoL albums. But it is evident from the first track 'Palisades' that some psychic disturbance has reasserted itself in Gira's writing. While Palisades has beauty, it also has a violence that is more reminiscent of earlier SWANS work. The lyrics in particular are harrowing: 'Reasons won't come/And no one will regret that you're gone.'
The theme for the album is thus set: the main settings are damp, suffocating family traumas, apart from the gorgeous voyeur's lament 'Kosinski,' which is unquestionably one of the best Gira has ever written. In fact, if this album consisted of nothing but that song and fifty minutes of silence, this would still be the best album of the year to date.
The artwork adds to the feeling of claustrophobia, with pictures of humble rooms that one can easily imagine were the places where god knows how many secret tortures were played out. The music is, in the main, quite a bit uglier than the previous AoL albums- the manic 'Rose of Los Angeles' finds Gira at his most hostile- but like his book 'The Consumer,' the ugliness is so recognizable that it seems like one is listening to one's own inner monologue given external life. And the beautiful moments are thus made even more precious. The closing track 'What will come' swoons and sparkles with ominous charm, even as the narrator begs the God he knows to be absent to save him from the pitiless future. Some people seem to have found a 'redemptive' theme in this work but I confess I can't see it. Any album that begins so bitterly and ends with such a presentiment of dread is not describing the saving of a soul, much as such a release is wished for. However both 'Sunset Park,' which is nearly a prayer, and 'Kosinski' do make one feel the very heights of joy. This is a strange, ambiguous, and furiously passionate album, and there is nothing like it. A bleeding jewel, uncompromised and alone.

Elegant melancholy & muted foreboding 24 May 2003

Palisades with its unusual instrumental flourishes opens the album & is followed by the harsh and dissonant note of All Souls' Rising before the sonic radiance of Kosinski reaches the ears.

This beautiful album concludes on an ominous note with the (preferably not) prophetic What Will Come, a melodious ballad with atmospheric instrumentation and an enigmatic spirituality resembling that on Children of God. Shiver me timbers. I love the tracks Palisades and Kosinski as much as masterpieces like This Is Mine, Forever Yours, The Garden Hides The Jewel, Evangeline and Two Women from New Mother and How I Loved You.

There is no voice like Michael Gira's and no musical vision quite like his post-Swans incarnation. I also recommend the 2008 album We Are Him and of his earlier work, Ten Songs for Another World by World of Skin, Swans' Various Failures and for the intrepid undaunted by experimental sounds, Number One of Three by The Body Lovers.

this will have swans shaking in disbelief. mr. gira has outdone himself again with this crooning avant-classical folk hymnal of morose mystery.take all the beautiful , truly emotional, songwriting of How I Loved You and blend in a rich medley of aural fireworks-both dissonant and melifluous and you still have only one aspect of this strange album. best album so far this year -in any genre.

HIS VOICE CONTAINS NATIONS 18 Mar. 2003
By Anthony R. Stomski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Don't cry no more...He's coming here....
From the opening of "Palisades" to the extreme highs of "Nations" and "What You Were" to the haunting "Wedding" and the closing of "What Will Come"....This is Michael Gira's greatest offering, and I PRAISE HIS NAME. Anyone who has a connection with SWANS, World Of Skin, or The Angels Of Light will be very pleased with Everything Is Good Here/Please Come Home.
