Gatefold jacket. Contains lyric sheet and poster. Embossed label name (Young God Records) on rear sleeve.

The track 'Blind', although originally recorded for the record, was not available on the original 1991 release, but was first released on M. Gira - Drainland. This version of 'Why Are We Alive?' is also not taken from the original release, but the alternate version that was first released on the compilation Swans - Various Failures 1988-1992.

Swans are a band with their own unique sound, and with a frontman who is literate (unlike most rock or pop lyricists) this is a quite awesome blend of stimulating and inventive music and lyrics that exemplifies perfectly the Hegelian idea of music as a total withdrawal from spatiality into an inner temporal realm of subjectivity (in this case a harsh, brutal and despairing subjectivity). Music to get totally lost in.
