what swans album should i listen after this?
>>
Keep continuing through the discography if you like them
>>
>>61944017
Listen to Cop if you liked Filth
>>
Listen to Cop if you'd like to hear the exact same album again
>>
>>61944017
Every
>>
>>61944034
Yep. Their next stuff is just as raw and industrial, then they become more gothic, then more post-punk, then everything at once + post-rock.
>>
>>61944017
If you want something similar, try Cop

if you want their best, try Soundtracks For The Blind

if you want their easiest albums to get into, try White Light Through The Mouth Of Infinity or To Be Kind.

Other albums to hear:
The Seer
Children Of God (kinda overrated imo. but maybe i need to give it another chance)
The Great Annihilator
My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky
>>
>>61944096
Soundtracks is their peak
>>
>>61944106
how is TBK easiest to get in to you retard? one of the tracks is a half hour long
>>
Listen to Love of Life, it's their best.

90s neofolk swans is the best swans.
>>
>>61944165
>one of the tracks is a half hour long
wow that's absolutely insane omg how could anyone listen to that except some kind of absolute MADMAN
>>
>>61944165
Don't swear me please.
it's not about the length of the tracks, it's about the music which the album contains. it's much more accessible compared to most of swans discography. just compare it to Filth, anon.

It's still an incredible album tho
>>
I lost respect for Michael Gira when I listened to Cops. If you respect the brave men that put their life at stake everyday, then boycott Swans. I did even after enjoying the hell out of "To Be Kind".
>>
>>61944199
looks like someone's upset about flunking out of meme school
>>61944207
the great annihilator is far more accessible than TBK, length aside

p.s. fuck you
>>
>>61944207
Goddamn crazyaga, you're still here?
Still as stupid as ever
>>
>>61944085
No one can be this pleb
>>
>>61944017
Young God EP, then Cop, then Greed then Holy Money, then Public Castration is a Good Idea. Don't listen to the memes telling you to listen to their post rock stuff just yet, you'll get there in good time OP.
>>
>>61945226
But it's objectively true
>>
>>61944017
Go in a chronological order if you liked Filth.
>>
Well, did you listen to their first EP? If you haven't, then check it out it's one of their two EPs worth it. Then at least check out these in these order:

Cop
Young God EP
Greed
Holy Money
Public Castration Is A Good Idea
Children Of God
White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity
OPTIONAL LISTEN: Body to Body Job to Job
The Great Annihilator
Soundtracks For The Blind
Swans Are Dead
OPTIONAL LISTEN: My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky
The Seer
To Be Kind

Yes, I skipped The Burning World and Love Of Life. Those you should check out only if you have legit fallen in love with the band
>>
>>61945298
Come on

You be saying that Cop is the exact same album as Filth? Are you really this hopeless as a human being?
>>
>>61945354
It's called hyperbole you retard. There isn't enough variation in sound between the two albums for them both to be worth listening to. There's barely enough variation between the individual songs on Filth. You might as well just listen to this on repeat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDW8v-cLX8E
>>
>>61945342
thanks

btw do you have a download link to the Swans EP? all archive links are dead, i could find Young God EP on it tho

>>
>>61944106
>White Light Through The Mouth Of Infinity
Love of Life is a similar style but better, imo
>>
>>61945409
there's a noticable difference between Cop and Filth you retard
>>
>>61945999
Describe the key differences in musical terms.

except that i did answer your question and now you're just nitpicking to avoid having to admit that i'm right and you're stupid

p.s. nobody believes you play anything because it is very easy to lie on the internet
>>
>>61944017
no wave era
post rock era
post punk era

listen to everything lumped in that order
>>
>>61946249
>except that i did answer your question and now you're just nitpicking to avoid having to admit that i'm right and you're stupid
I don't believe you did answer my question. I asked you to point out the differences "in musical terms". "Heavier" is just a vague stylistic descriptor.
>slow arhythmic noise
This could also apply to Filth, apart from "arrhythmic", which IIRC doesn't apply to Cop either.

>p.s. nobody believes you play anything because it is very easy to lie on the internet
I'm not really interested in whether you believe me or not.
