Swans | Soundtracks for the Blind | Review

Dawnrazor zine vol. II/III | Einar Sjursö

Sadly, the final Swans chapter, but what a swansong!

Sadly, the final Swans chapter, but what a swansong! This gargantuan 140 minutes journey combines all the best elements of the back-catalog, and stretches them even further. Found recordings, tape loops, ambient drones, samples, and even "regular" songs, although nothing is regular on "Soundtracks for the Blind." A manifest of musical genius, a disturbing rollercoaster-ride through landscapes you didn't know exist. If only all bands could throw in the towel at an equal stage. Not that a lot of bands can ever dream of reaching this level. One should willingly sacrifice one's eyes for this record.
