Gas // Pop // Mille Plateaux // 2000
Genre: Ambient, Drone, Nature Recordings, Ambient Techno, Minimal Techno
I get writer’s block every time I try and scribble my thoughts on this album. Back when Pitchfork was writing decent reviews, Mark Richard-San wrote this review for Pop. This album embodies everything I love about the repetitious nature of ambient music and the depth that can be drawn from within.

Swans has one of the most diversified careers in modern music and with this album, so began the best four album stretch in the Swans’ discography that culminated in the seminal first wave post-rock masterpiece, 1996’s Soundtracks for the Blind, but it’s important to not undermine the stepping stones.
