The percussion and the rhythm on Avatar are so brilliant.

Although I'd probably say TBK has slightly better production, the sounds from the drums are amazing.

Is TBK as atmospheric as this, or more so?

I feel like To Be Kind was the true climax of Swans' sound, and that this leaned slightly more toward accessibility. Either way, they're both fantastic.

It's only slight, but that's how I feel. And I'm not measuring their quality by that statement at all.

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.
