 "There is a thrill in watching Gira chase his tail, because his shelters are so weak." Nicely written. I've followed Gira since mid-Nineties Swans, and i have always found him to be the most compelling, masochistic artist. this guy pulls no punches. Sometimes his misery and self-loathing reach lyrical heights that surpass Ian Curtis. Check out Swan's "Failure".

 I'm glad there's a review from Stylus I can finally agree with! haha
Nice work, Andrew. This album is nice, but it's not amazing (so a "B" from me also); it has more of an experimental folk/rock sound than Sing "Other People", which I don't like as much as We Are Him either. So, you nailed it.
