    Absolutely mind blowing, it shows Swans at the peak of their (reinvigorated) powers. Visceral as hell, but also intellectually challenging, it perfectly captures the extremely intense experience of watching them live in their last tour. The album rotates within itself, in growing circular and pulsating motion and, as the songs -old and/or recent, even unpublished- tower, expand and meltAbsolutely mind blowing, it shows Swans at the peak of their (reinvigorated) powers. Visceral as hell, but also intellectually challenging, it perfectly captures the extremely intense experience of watching them live in their last tour. The album rotates within itself, in growing circular and pulsating motion and, as the songs -old and/or recent, even unpublished- tower, expand and melt with each other, they resonate with unfathomable power -sourly bathed in vitriol, feedback and repetition- in ears and, even on top of that, brain. Serious candidate for album of the year... Expand

    We Rose From Your Bed may be a live album, but it's much more investigative and surprising than most live offerings.

    A striking document of Swans' current live form. [Jul 2012, p.64]

    This current incarnation of Swans swim across the salty sea of the group's three-decade strong catalog, executing a balance of grind and grace that casts a new light on old classics.
