5 stars Swans is one of the darkest band i've ever heard. The band was a post-punk band before, but turned into a post-rock band. They released masterpieces like Children Of God, Soundtracks For The Blind, White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity, and in 2012, The Seer. Their post-rock sound is between Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Joy Division. Interesting. As I said before, The Seer was an excellent post-rock release, so I was waiting for To Be Kind. It worth the waiting. To Be Kind is an excellent double album, and one of the best post-rock release that i've ever head. A post-rock masterpiece, without any doubt. It's powerful, dark, intense, well composed... The highlights are A Little God In My Hands, the 34-minutes epic Bring The Sun/Toussaint L'Ouverture, the opening Screen Shot and Oxygen. A difficult album, but really awesome. If you like GY!BE, Mogwai, or Joy Division, Swans are for you.
