Boomkat product review for:

swans - Various Failures

Various Failures arrived in 1999, compiling songs included on the Swans albums The Burning World (1989), Ten Songs For Another World (1990), White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity (1990/1991) and Love Of Live (1992), as well as the various singles released around this time. This is a very different band to the one that released Filth back in the early eighties. The darkness and lyrical malice remains, but these are recognisable as songs rather than the metallic dirges of old. It's certainly a lot easier to see how Michael Gira managed to get from the likes of 'Miracle Of Love', 'Saved' and 'Picture Of Maryanne' to his Angels Of Light output. There's a lot of material to get through on this release, but the songs assembled here represent a sizeable chunk of the Swans discography, and given that the original albums from which these songs are drawn are long out of print, Various Failures remains a pretty indispensable insight into the band's history.
