You guys are a real hootTongue

Putting on Ricochet now. THAT one feels like a Krautrock album though - just like their first 3 studio albums actually.

Ahhh....I love the smell of tennis balls in the morning....

LOL
True story :
My dog(fox terrier) loves tennis balls. We go to the local courts(which are caged in and surrounded by a forest on 3 sides) and as we walk around them suddenly he makes a bee line into the bush and gets a ball. His sense of smell is incredible. He'll even be walking around the court with a tennis ball in his mouth and he'll drop that ball and go in and find another he somehow is able to smell. We have about 60 tennis balls on our property(back yard and in the house). And get this ! If we are playing with one(where i throw it and he gets it and brings it back) and i trick him by throwing a diffferent tennis ball, he knows it's not the same one and will leave it.Shocked  Crazy freaking dog man.

Dogs are pretty incredible creatures when you think about it.  But yeah, tennis balls do have a very distinct smell.  I should come up with a tennis ball cologne.

Well the next album (The Seer, with the studio version of "The Apostate") be the album to get Swans added to PA?
Hmmm....!Smile
Look forward to hearing it in any case.

Hell, I'm already planning on suggesting them based on their last album, but suggested Angels of Light first as a pilot of sorts.  If they get added, I'll be making a Swans thread shortly after; if not, I'll wait until next album.

Probably not for krautrock though LOL

No, one collab voted move and nobody else has posted yet

They are on RIO chart, I would have thought eclectic or maybe even folk over that

Thanks Colin.

I didn't like the last Swans album all that much (though it wasn't bad), but if the next album has more songs like this, I'll be a very happy guy.

Where to start Steve? 
As you know I am pretty eclectic, but perhaps I lean towards the psychedelic side of things, although I must admit feeling somewhat disturbingly attracted to albums such as the Current 93 debut, which just listened to again for the first time in over a year.

They had 2 distinct phases/styles over their history, with a brief "transitional" style in between.  I guess that makes 3 styles.  Whatever.

Anyway, the early stuff is percussive, dissonant, pounding, slow, industrial post-punk.  The 2-disc "Filth/Body to Body, Job to Job" CD (containing 2 full albums) is the best I've heard of that era.  Very desperate, sad stuff. 

The later stuff is much more melodic, but its appeal comes from expansive, huge arrangements of cinematic tragedy and despair, rather than the beat-your-head-against-the-wall variety of the early years. Occasionally they got pretty experimental in this phase too - and "Soundtracks for the Blind" is my favorite one I've heard of this type, a very long double CD album.  It's got quite a few ambient instrumentals I like, plus a real intense 15 minute monster that builds very slowly to a horrific climax.

I really liked their most recent one.

I'm going to say The Great Annihilator - their token post-punk album - or Soundtracks for the Blind, which is their longest and most diverse work.

The early stuff is really ugly in a way that appeals to me, but probably not most people.

Also, this is my favourite Swans song

Also also, C93 is great
