One of my fav new wave band that convey elegance, poetry and beauty; the Wild Swan's songs are truly timeless and has a place in my heart. I'm glad that they're popular in the Philippines where I first heard their song "Whirlpool Heart" in NU 107 FM, Manila. The track has a lovely lyrics and the way the song was sung, engineered and arranged. It's simply something that lingers and unforgettable. Other tracks that I deeply love are "Northern England," "The Worst Year of My Life," "Bringing Home the Ashes," "Archangels," "Immaculate," "Bitterness," "Mythical Beast" and "Bible Dreams." Listen closely to the lyrics of "Northern England" "Bringing Home the Ashes" and "The Worst Year of My Life," as an example, these songs tells beauty, patriotism and positive message. Plus, the melodies are just wonderful. Instrumentwise, the guitar layers and arrangement are something that is artistic and well-crafted - something that is mostly not heard on songs nowadays. I would have given this great band from England six stars if I could. "Come to a place I know where the air is clean...maybe we can capture there....Once I thought the world was blue, now it's reigning colours of paralizing you....." - Whirlpool Heart, The Wild Swans (Liverpool, England).
