"I have this image I can't shake when I listen to this and TBK.

It goes something like this.



There's a creative music class taking place in an art studio.

Students full hearted half decent efforts of aimless splashes on canvas adorn the walls.

In a circle sit the 'musicians' who take it in turns to play their pieces.

A folky strum here, a pleasant synth there.

Then here comes 'Swans' a bedraggled, withered 72yr old sat stark naked on the floor blathering on about Christ knows what starts shouting and hitting a chair.

All the arty people applaud."



lol, it sounds good when you are depressed though

I actually think I prefer this to To Be Kind. By a small margin.

Like I get that it's fairly basic but the lyrics and chants are chilling and get me pumped up to listen to 2 hours of swans every single time

It's weird that people hate Lunacy and like the rest of this album. Lunacy isn't by any means my favorite, but it's a very fitting opener.

I get that's the purpose, of that song. But really it's just a chore to get through for me personally



To Be Kind right from the first few seconds of Screenshot however has this creepy atmosphere combined with this almost evil sounding attitude that immediately grabs me.
