|'Turn Loose the Swans' is the second full length release from doom/death pioneers My Dying Bride. Without a shadow of doubt, this CD is my favorite of them all. Not only has this album lived up to the high expectations after the debut 'As the Flower Withers', but it has also surprised more or less every doom fan.|
Today it is considered to be one of the best and most influential albums in the genre. What makes this album so extraordinary is the amazing atmosphere and the superb mix of standard instruments with the violin. Of course, today this combination isn't that rare, but at the time it was quite special, and perfectly executed.
I have to point out what is for me perhaps the most extraordinary song of them all, 'Your River', the nine minute epic that never fails to send shivers down my spine. Get 'Turn Loose the Swans'. Enjoy it. You've listened to it already and found nothing interesting? Listen again, you must have missed something.
