China was a neat
Yum-Yab Killers is a masterpiece and probably my favorite in this sprawling gargantuan masterpiece. Seriously the songwriting and sound just flows so smoothly here just like it should be in all classic albums. One of my favorite albums to listen during long-distance travels as well.

This was special. I'll have to relistin again after picing it back up from a years ago initial introduction. The Jarboe editions are perhaps nice enough to pick up however I'll have to see if hype matches. Strange how roughly a year after introduction I've started to appreciate from relistening to liking Swans coincidently. Especially this and the Seer. Something Lynchian/X-Files/Neurosis sounds accumilating from the 90's atmosphere about it's place. The likely had all ear connection to Swans but their influence may not be heavily clear.

[edit] adding the Jarboe art box to wantlist. An emotional, moving drive. This is having in collection level tier along with The Seer. It feels so endearing when something you return to (as I have the tendency to for great effect ala Burzum, Type O Negative, dISEMBOWELMENT, The Pernicious Enigma) brings out more to what you enjoy happening today. It gives the music of the past more weight to enjoy more out from it. Not sure what I'm trying to emphasise other than love and relation in respect really.
