Even when listening to it in the wrong state, it still ranked at like a 3/5 and the only track I disliked at the time was Cloud of Forgetting because I didn't find it busy enough.

I blasted it the next day and loved Cloud of Forgetting on its own and in the context of the album. This one, while a little more understated than their two previous albums, is still just as gripping. Favourite song has to be a tie between Frankie M and The Glowing Man (though my favourite moments were from the violin on Cloud of Unknowing). I'm going to let a few more listens sink in before voting, but right now it's at a 4.5/5.
Michael Gira is really riding on the drug references in Frankie M. At first I thought it to be off putting, but it's my favorite track.

I haven't even really registered the lyrics yet tbh (which is hard for something like Swans imo, since it's so busy and textural).

If these words didn't jump out at you, I don't think you heard the song. Much less this record

Certainly. I was put in weird Swan trances multiple times throughout this record.
