Man, do Swans love dishing out epic double live albums, it's like it's either two discs or
no discs with them. I didn't think it was possible to flesh out the brutal and engulfing
emotion in the songs on My Father Will Guide Me up a Rope to the Sky even more than
it already was, but the 23 minute live rendition of "No Words/No Thoughts" proves otherwise.
The live preview demos of a handful of songs from the then-upcoming album The Seer
provide those sample compositions with a raw and un-mastered edge, and gives a viscerally
unsettling sense of foreboding to the album as a whole. If We Rose from Your Bed with the
Sun in Our Head shows anything, it's that Swans can do no wrong in concert, and further
proves that the band's live performances have a masterful capability of conveying the
experience's power and staying effect through the album format just as well.

Except for "The Seer", which, just like on the studio album, drags a bit too much, and "I Crawled", which, despite its overwhelming popularity, has never been a highlight of the band, there are a lot of interesting twists to the known songs: "No Words/No Thoughts" finally feels the right length, "Yr Property" sounds like a mix between original version and the Soundtracks... remake, and the two Children of God songs are remade with strong grooves, making the release every bit as worthwhile as 1998's Swans Are Dead.
