Descriptions du produit

Swans, groupe mythique américain emmené par Michael Gira, a été fondé en 1982 avant de se séparer en 1997. Leur reformation en 2010 est marquée par la sortie des albums My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky (2010) et The Seer (2012), tous deux acclamés par la critique.

Parfois lent et implacable, parfois martelant et hypnotique, les Swans sont ici à leur meilleur depuis… on ne siat quand. Les précédents albums (the Seer, notamment) étaient déjà excellent, mais celui-ci déborde d'énergie et de force. Aussi : à voir sur scène !

HASH(0x9f2f5db0) étoiles sur 5 Soundtrack For a Hieronymus Bosch Painting 21 juillet 2014
Par John W. Evans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I have been listening to music seriously for more than 50 years and I have never heard anything like this album. It is exhausting and exhilarating at the same time, at once violent and soothing, and makes me feel like I am immersed in a Hieronymus Bosch painting.

On "To Be Kind", I hear primitive chanting, ghostly passages, insane cackling and other sounds that will remind you that all things are not as we see them... and all sounds are not as we hear them. There are things to be seen and heard that are buried under layers, and on this album, vocalist Michael Gira and Swans strip some of those layers away.

The band creates mesmerizing rhythms that build, fade, and blend into each other as the music swells, dies, and terrifies. The overall effect is one of desperation, bleak landscapes, and hideous hellfire from which there is no escape. This is the aural antithesis of "Christian music". This stuff is absolutely and fantastically subterranean.

If you don't like that sort of thing, stay away. But if you have an open mind for music and appreciate unique, artfully-played experimental sounds... or if you like music that by its nature compels you to contemplate existence, mortality in particular... then you may come to love this album, as I have.

I hear the unrelenting drive of "To Be Kind" telling me I'm now sucked in, and if I want to be kind fo myself, the only exorcism is to hear more music by Swans.

HASH(0x9f356378) étoiles sur 5 Swans do it again- A Masterpiece! 18 mai 2014
Par PuroShaggy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
To argue that any album is as good as "The Seer", the Swans previous outing, is a risky proposition, but somehow someway, Michael Gira and the latest incarnation of his band have managed to match the intensity and originality of their previous two hour epic with a similar but markedly different new two hour epic.
"To Be Kind" kicks off with what could be mistaken as a Pink Floyd bass line- fluid, engaging, propulsive. Over this, Gira chants a series of one word and two word lines as percussion bangs away and guitars chime, slowly building to a climax that hints at the chaos and intensity to come, but never quite gets there. Titled "Screen Shot", this opening number encapsulates everything that works about this album: slowly building numbers, an orchestra of instruments synchronized or clashing, chaos contrasted with sparse landscapes of beauty, a hard to describe intensity conveyed through sparse lyrics.
The beauty of the opening track is that it pulls the listener in with what could be described as a more mainstream "rock" number before the rest of the album veers off into more experimental territory. "Just A Little Boy" finds Gira tapping into the Dionysian energies of Jim Morrison the singer, while disembodied voices swarm around the plodding instrumentation. The refrain of "I need love" towards the end lends the track an unsettling desperation. "A Little God in My Hands" could be mistaken for a TV on the Radio track thanks to its funk and swagger, though the bursts of noise and chanting push it into Swans territory.
The highlight of the album, and arguably one of the Swans most important pieces, is the 34 minute "Bring the Sun/Toussaint L'Overture", a track that kicks off with an expected Swans assault- guitar, drums, and bass repeating the same aggressive chord over and over and over for what feels like way too long. This eventually dissipates into a quiet storm that spends over ten minutes building in intensity, shouting out praise to "The Sun!" and losing itself (halfway through the track) in a fury of white noise. Once things fall apart, an eerie chaotic calm takes over until the band is once again ready to attack, the sound of urgent sawing and whinnying horses announcing the arrival of the aggressive yet celebratory finish, in which Gira, much like the aforementioned Morrison, sounds like a shaman calling forth all manner of spirits, both good and evil. Terrifying, cathartic, and at times beautiful, "Bring the Sun/Toussaint l'Overture" qualifies as a signature Swans piece and manages to capture the storm of intense emotions with which Gira can imbue any song. Had this been the only track, this still would be a Five Star album. Gira follows this with the five minute "Some Things We Do", a calm, relaxing prayer that is much needed after the intensity of the previous track.
"She Loves Us!" has a progressive rock feel, with hints of King Crimson and Mars Volta in the main repeated riff and layers of additional riffs that are piled on (all of which eventually give way to sonic chaos). "Kirsten Supine", if it was twelve minutes shorter, could qualify as a Nick Cave torch song (that gives way to a Swans style thrashing). "Oxygen" and "Nathalie Neal" both clock in under eleven minutes and provide relatively short, sharp shocks of post-rock aggression, heavy on the drums and guitar riffs. The two hour "To be Kind" experience concludes with the title track, a solemn 'ballad' that makes up in quiet intensity what it lacks in volume or chaos (before giving way to one final burst of volume and chaos).
"To Be Kind" is as awesome, powerful, intimidating, memorable, epic, experimental, and beyond the boundaries of contemporary rock as its predecessor "The Seer" was. Somehow, someway, Micheal Gira and crew have once again managed to deliver an epic two hour masterpiece.

HASH(0x9fd6124c) étoiles sur 5 Among the best 13 mai 2014
Par Kurt_Mastodon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
If you're already a Swans fan, quit reading, go get this.

If you're new to the Swans, this is a fine place to dive in. "To Be Kind" is the third outing from the current line-up of band members. With 3 albums and years of touring, these road-tested veterans have emerged as the most cohesive incarnation of the Swans to date. And dare I say it, they even sound like a rock band now. While Swans have always been able to challenge the volume and intensity of anyone, their songs have rarely 'rocked'. They've pummeled, they've bludgeoned, and they've rejoiced, but they haven't rocked like this before. Post-rock maybe, but not rock & roll. Though this album is by no means light, I can almost hear the band enjoying themselves.

HASH(0xa0a372c4) étoiles sur 5 Prepare to be hypnotized! 12 octobre 2014
Par chris - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have been a Swans fan since their first release and was lucky enough to see them live on the Children Of God tour. I was always disappointed that singer Jarboe left the band late in their career but the past 3 releases by the Swans has proved they are just as good or possibly better without her.This is an amazing album that is as good (if not better) as anything else they have released. Older fans will not be disappointed and new listeners be prepared to be sucked in and pulverized by this sonic wall of hypnotic and magical music. This is music without compromise. Annie Clark from St Vincent and Bill Rieflin from Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, and King Crimson ( just a few of the bands he has worked with) appears on this release. Prepare to be hypnotized!

HASH(0x9f7114ec) étoiles sur 5 How did I never hear of this band until now?! 10 octobre 2014
Par Culture Vulture - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
A lot of my recent music purchases lately have been out of admiration for older musicians and bands that are still going strong in their 50s and 60s (Johnny Marr, OFF!, David Bowie, Morrissey, U2, etc...) and while I only heard of this band recently after seeing this album at the top of a random website's top albums of 2014 list, I can see they are serious craftsmen getting better with age. Michael Gira reminds me of James Hetfield (Metallica) without all the trappings of a metal image on first impression, making music just as heavy, yet not metal. And I'm no musician but have worked around musicians setting up sound and appreciate seeing how Gira approaches it, not merely to be loud but to get the purest sound he can get. I also appreciate the spirituality of the music, at least from Gira's interviews where he can appreciate the Bible and the overall message. Maybe some people miss the point of this music wanting to label it as dark just because it is heavy sounding but I like that there are some mainstream rock musicians unafraid of spirituality. I think I heard some 'hallelujahs' being chanted somewhere in there. I can also see the comparisons to Australian Nick Cave's music, I could definitely imagine Swans doing a score to a western movie like The Proposition. Also, some of the more bass-heavy tracks bring Primus to mind, and there are a few freak-out moments that sound like The Doors at their trippiest. The only other music I can compare this to would be early PiL and maybe even Bauhaus. Really it's also like nothing else I've heard in a while. Probably not something to rock out in the the car to, but certainly an interesting sonic realm to enter once in a while.
