Editorial Reviews

This double album document of Swans triumphant '87 European tour in support of their most critically acclaimed album, CHILDREN OF GOD is available again on Atavistic.Featuring the mesmerizing lineup of Michael Gira, Jarboe, Westberg, Kyzis & Parsons, FEEL GOOD NOW captures Swans live at one of the true pinnacles of their storied career... somehow deploying music simultaneously heavy, yet delicate and fragile. FGN compiles recordings by one of the most creative, larger-than-life American bands of the last 30 years from Germany, Poland, Czech, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, France, Italy, Yugoslavia & UK. The mere fact that Swans were in demand in all these different countries speaks to their unique prominence at that time. Gira's epitaph for this brilliant period, this Swans lineup, and these recordings is nothing if not acutely concise: "THANKS TO THOSE THAT AIDED, A CURSE TO THOSE THAT HINDERED. THIS RECORD MARKS A DISTINCT END TO A TIME NOW GONE. GOOD LUCK".

Feel Good Now. The very name of the album is a command, and that's exactly what the Swans do. When the Swans storm the stage in all their raw, gothic glory, they don't just play music; they command the music, harnessing a vast arsenal of pure guitar energy and oppressively dense rhythms to force the audience into deaf submission. Sounding like a hellish amalgamation of Joy Division and Flipper, The Swans exhume lost sounds from another time that are truly primordial and earth shattering in their overwhelmingly mundane, militaristic rage. The music itself transcends any possible categorization, taking on a life of its own as it breathes and writhes suspended above the heads of the aghast audience. Culling feelings of hatred, anger, despair, and angst from the depths of the planet, Feel Good Now is the larger than life manifestation of all of our darkest emotions and most vile desires put on display before us. However, while the pure fury of the album inevitably leads to music that contains unparalleled violence, the heightened emotional potency of the album also gives it an equally beautiful and serene element of release that shows anger as an integral, vital emotion that should be harnessed, not suppressed. Anger is perhaps the only word strong enough and encompassing enough to fully describe the sound that is The Swans because to refer to this music as nothing more than music would be ignorant; Feel Good Now is pure emotion. Like their obvious predecessors, the legendary MC5, a live album is simply the only way to contain their immense sound and Feel Good Now perfectly captures the Swans at the height of their powers making an already lengthy album of 75 minutes feel like nearly 3 hours of intense pummeling feedback.Read more ›

These days when I hear about all the countless supposedly "dark" and "intense" nu-metal bands, I listen to Feel Good Now and just laugh. Swans were brutal, bludgeoning, pummeling,uncompromising....and somehow beautiful at the same time. Most of all, they were REAL. This album is a prime example of Swans in all their glory, and makes more modern bands like (scoff) Linkin Park and (gag) Staind sound about as dark and intense as N'Sync or Jessica Simpson.
