The Glowing Man Tracklist. Cloud of Forgetting Lyrics. The album is valedictory because the music itself is valedictory. Every album is kind of always the last one. Its the most important thing you could ever do. As is customary with a Swans album, it was critically acclaimed, and the plan is to tour the record extensively. The song The World Looks RedThe World Looks Black contains lyrics written by frontman Michael Gira that were used in the Sonic Youth song The World Looks Red in the album Confusion Is Sex. The music itself, however, is unrelated. Following the unprecedented critical and commercial success of Swans' double-album masterworks The Seer and To Be Kind - the latter of. Album 2016 8 Songs. Alternative 2016. The Glowing Man is, according to Michael Gira, a record in which the Swans leader 62 years old, 14 LPs in stares into the face of mortality, infinity, God. It sounds like it, too such lofty thematic ambition matched across a two-hour triple-album striving for the firmament, the transcendent. Full Review
