0.0 YoYoMancuso | November 5th 12

Bloodcurdling, intense buildup to the passionate genius of Children Of God. Listen to the monstrous version of "A Screw (Holy Money)" on the Public Castration live album and you'll understand why this band is so special.

4.0 excellentBrendan M. | June 13th 14

Greed was signaling quite a change in sound for Swans, but it's ideas sounded somewhat unrefined and underdeveloped. With Holy Money though, they have come very close to perfecting the droning, brutal attack of albums such as Children of God. The biggest improvement lies in the droning part though, whereas on Greed they would drone on and on and not quite develop into anything, but it works here almost perfectly. The crushing power is still present though, with Coward being one of the most frightening, bloodcurdling, and just plain horrifying songs ever made. Despite not being one of their greatest albums though, it still serves as possibly the most important stepping stone between the unfocused Greed and the masterpiece of Children of God. 4.1/5

3.5 greatIan Christ | May 22nd 14

Swans start to really get their shit together. This album takes what they had been working on in the previous
three to a level where more listeners can understand what the band intends to create. Coward is their best song
up to this point in their discography.
