- Children Of God/ World Of Skin by SWANS
9/10 Jack 19th January 2015
This compilation chronologically precedes Various Failures, containing music recorded in 1986 and 1987. Most of the first two World of Skin albums are here plus Children of God, the work on which the band's transition from brutal industrial noise to a softer & seductive but deeply subversive style found true expression. New Mind and Beautiful Child are the only harsh numbers harking back to their earlier work; elsewhere the mood is one of resignation or sorrow over mostly gentle instrumentation. If you should happen to like anything by Swans do yourself the explicit favour of purchasing "Various Failures"(my favourite), "The Great Annihilator" and this brilliant album as well.
