The Seer
by Swans
(Ratings: 0)
Swans’ 12th studio album is not merely a return to form but a revelation While “My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky” (2010) was like a strange hybrid of Swans’ and Gira’s follow-up band project, The Angels of Light, “The Seer” incorporates elements from all periods in Swans’ dark and brooding career. One shouldn’t throw around terms like “magnum opus” too often, but the monosyllabic ecstasy of Swans’ anti-blues on “The Seer” actually fulfills all requirements. At two hours in length, the album can get in line with the monumental releases Gira put out in the late ’90s, sprawling double albums that wrapped up the band’s legacy with live recordings, loops, soundscapes and studio fragments.
