Swans - The Burning World album FLAC

The Burning World is the sixth studio album by American experimental rock band Swans. It was released in 1989, through record label Uni Records; the band's only major label release.

Although the album before this, Children of God, saw the band experiment with piano-tinged baroque ballads and post-rock-like instrumentation at points, there was still a sense of brutality and driving force in tracks like New Mind and Beautiful Child. Listening to most of this, it’s hard to tell that it’s the same band that made Filth a mere six years ago. The whole album is very melodic, with Gira actually singing vocals instead of speaking them with anger.

Burning was a case where agreement over how best to work together simply wasn't there).

The Burning World was originally released in 1989 and marks the first and last major label record for Michael Gira's Swans. The album was produced by Bill Laswell, a pairing that Gira claims was not a good fit and was forced upon him by the label. Despite Gira's own distaste for the record, its reputation has grown over the years and is now considered a fine effort from one of the most important and longest lasting New York post-punk groups
