I've heard good things about Swans for years, but it wasn't until last week when I saw this collection in the used section at the local record store that had actually heard them.

And I must say, they really live up to the hype. The subdued darkness and haunting beauty of the songs on this collection took me by surprise.

Highlights include "Why Are We Alive?", "Better Than You", and the stunningly brilliant cover of "Love Will Tear Us Apart".

If you haven't heard Swans before, you should really check this collection out. If you have heard them before, then you probably already own this collection. So listen to it and smile!
