By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 Dec. 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A collection of three platters plus an EP. Discs containing some of the most triumphal, blasted and racked personal insights; linked not to the usual musical malaise of boy meets girl. Instead these are surging psychological portrayals of brutal power operating downwards.

Drop from the end of a rope and then face the silent abyss; finally the pained self reflection of this record will clearly materialise. Lyrics viewed within the continual master/slave dialectical, as this signposts the scarier way to a deeper exploration of the dark side of the swinging room. Turn on the light whilst the chords tighten around the neck then view the corner where the beaten child cowers awaiting yet another blasted boot from the steel toe cap of another supreme power: Light up the American Beauty.

All the "tunes" are slabs of industrial pistons slowly grinding the body into fine pieces of calciated dust. The first piece; cut directly from the bone is pure masculine muscle and gristle lying on the slab. Eventually it becomes lighter towards the end of the reverie, as the lyrics become infused with a feminine sweetness, the sound of a nightingale after its eyes have been plucked out. As the production values increased a notch, a space entered within the blasts of percussed drilled noise. The lyrics meanwhile deal with the mind set of the victim turned perpetrator. There are so many highlights such as "Your Property" "Cop" "Why hide," "Butcher."

This album is beyond nearly all standard forms of the "industrial" genre. It inhabits an ubermensch world of the literal young gods.

SWANS: COP

I've read and enjoyed Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles reviews of both this compilation, and a previous CD comp of Cop/Young God. I'm leaving this review not as a review of this whole compilation - which I'm just ordering now, and consequently haven't heard yet (though I own all the music on vinyl) - but as an alternate and, I hope, very different response, albeit equally positive, to this amazing music.

Many years ago I was in a short lived group with some friends at sixth-form who were into Sonic Youth, The Pixies, Dinosaur Jr, Enisturzende Neubauten, and all sorts of other stuff similar to or connected to such bands. What's often (or is that just sometimes?) called the post-punk/no wave scene. I must admit that, whilst I liked some of these bands and their music enough to stick with the group for the brief period in which it existed, it wasn't really my scene, man.

Some of the recordings that really reached me in the truly primal unmediated way I like best - and ordinarily at that time that might have been anything from a sweet bossa nova, like let's say 'Quite Nights Of Quiet Stars', by Jobim, to 'Pachuco Cadaver' by Beefheart, Joni Mitchell's 'Little Green' or 'Criminally Insane' by Slayer - were the early records by Swans. I think that was for several reasons, some of which I'll go into in a mo', but possibly chiefly because, as numerous critics and fans have pointed out, this is simply music like no other.

The sheer raw power of the music, and the brutal darkness of Gira's lyrics, are frequently alluded to in descriptions of this music, but there are a few things that I particularly like that I don't feel are usually mentioned.
