Look, I definitely enjoy visual kei rock entourage Buck-Tick and can get down to some KMFDM for that industrial fix, but this pretty much bores me to tears. Schweinstein, the first and only full-length album by Schwein, isn't a terribly memorable experience all things considered. As a concept, hearing Atsushi Sakurai and PIG mastermind Raymond Watts together on the same release sounds like it'd be great, although the overall execution leaves much to be desired. Instrumentally alongside songwriting-wise, there's nothing here I haven't heard that was handled with far better care in the past. All style, little substance.
