Swans

Love Of Life


Swans' classic album 'Love of Life' 1992 now remastered and reissued as a deluxe vinyl edition with an exclusive poster and digital download code The download includes 18 bonus tracks 'Love of Life' the band's eighth studio album followed soon after in 1992 'Love of Life' continues the astounding creative roll Swans found themselves on The title track has a quick rushed pace and pulse with stabs of further percussion and keyboards to provide underscoring energy to Gira's excellent singing while 'The Golden Boy That Was Swallowed by the Sea' captures Swans at their most selfconsciously mythic with a subtly descending chord defining the sweeping stringheavy song as Gira invokes near Blakean images of crowds shorelines and the titular boy laden with deceptively simple power Jarboe's own vocals as ever are exquisite investing 'The Other Side of the World' and her own lyric 'She Crys For Spider' with her beautiful rich singing With such further successes as the first gentle then pounding love song 'Her' combined with a poignant interview clip and the snarling kick of 'Amnesia' to its overall credit as well 'Love of Life' unsurprisingly proves to be yet another Swans masterpiece
