8/10 Alex Customer review, 12th September 2013

When The Great Annihilator arrived, Swans took the best qualities of their recent chamber-folk tendencies from the last two tepid albums and combined them with crushing post rock catharsis (polar opposites, it would seem), to produce a record firmly centred around the spirit and regeneration. The production is jarring yet svelte, and Gira's songwriting is at its most sophisticated and tortured here then it is anywhere else. The Seer has already confirmed Swans as a forward-moving, constantly improving entity, and this just barely ranks below one of their other later masterpieces, Soundtracks for the Blind. Highly recommended for late night listening, and in conjunction with it's evil twin counterpart, Swans Are Dead (live).
