    Wow. Whatever heartbreak I feel listening to "Everglade" from 'The Crying Light' is crushed into a yawn over this album. It's somehow meandering and disjointed all at once. Every song is one to two stars in iTunes, which is all the more disappointing given that Antony can make really great music.

    He captures the otherworldly more often than not. Occasionally, though, the songs overreach or miss some central point.

    Fans are unlikely to be disappointed, but if you're expecting a new direction, look somewhere else. [Nov 2010, p.52]

    Swanlights may not be the best of his works, but it is a welcome excursion along the path of his career.
