White Light from the Mouth of Infinity

Deadpanist Quite the comeback album after the appaling "The Burning World". Easily an all-time-top-10-favourite release with "Children of God", bought it on the day it came out and it has been a constant listening staple ever since. Incredible songwriting, great themes. All songs are strong, no fillers. It really defines the later portion of SWANS' career before the hiatus.

Felipe I've been aware of Swans' music for a while now, but this was the first album that I listened all the way through, and also the one that captivated me the most. It might not be as complex as some of their other compositions, but in its simplicity and with sincere and powerful lyrics, this album speaks volumes to me. Thank you, Mr. Gira. Favorite track: The Most Unfortunate Lie.

Joseph Aleo This album was my introduction to Swans. Decades later, I'm still listening. Favorite track: Faliure.

White Light from the Mouth of Infinity, Swans’ seventh studio album originally released in 1991, is considered the starting point for the second section of Swans’ inimitable history. Described as “…the glistening, glimmering sounds of the pensive countryside” by Stereogum, this will be the first time White Light from the Mouth of Infinity has been available on vinyl since its original release on Young God Records in 1991. The vinyl issue will include the track ‘Blind’, not included in the original release.
