Gira's 1995 solo album opens with You See Through Me which erupts in harsh & jarring guitars, followed by a tender & tuneful blend of vocals & instruments, the peace of which is in turn rudely interrupted by a taped (telephone?) conversation between him and Jarboe about alcohol abuse that deteriorates into a quarrel about money.

This spiteful spirit of demon drink is the same as that so vividly portrayed in the movie Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Track 2: Where Does Your Body Begin? is a tender acoustic treatment of the song Where Does A Body End? from Swans' 1995 masterpiece The Great Annihilator.

The horrifying track I See Them All Lined Up with its staccato stabs and spoken word recital of unmentionable imagery & lyrics in chilling indifference forces the listener into the same psychic landscape as Joy Division's Atrocity Exhibition. It is followed, not a minute too soon, by Unreal, a subdued dirge graced by Jarboe's spectral backing vocals.

Fan Letter with its crowd noises reminiscent of those on Lou Reed's All Through The Night from Street Hassle is a deranged rumination on the emptiness of fame, rock stars as role models and the void within. Undeniably striking in its poetics, like Bone Machine-era Tom Waits, the sentiment ... shiver ... the sentiment is malevolent to the extreme.

The song Your Naked Body covers the same territory as Mother's Milk on

4.0 von 5 Sternen DARK STAR 13. August 2001
Von Peter Uys - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gira's 1995 solo album opens with You See Through Me which erupts in harsh & jarring guitars, followed by a tender & tuneful blend of vocals & instruments, the peace of which is in turn rudely interrupted by a taped (telephone?) conversation between him and Jarboe about alcohol abuse that deteriorates into a quarrel about money.

The horrifying track I See Them All Lined Up with its staccato stabs and spoken word recital of unmentionable imagery & lyrics in chilling indifference forces the listener into the same psychic landscape as Joy Division's Atrocity Exhibition. It is followed, not a minute too soon, by Unreal, a subdued dirge graced by Jarboe's spectral backing vocals.

Fan Letter with its crowd noises reminiscent of those on Lou Reed's All Through The Night from Street Hassle is a deranged rumination on the emptiness of fame, rock stars as role models and the void within. Undeniably striking in its poetics, like Bone Machine-era Tom Waits, the sentiment ... shiver ... the sentiment is malevolent to the extreme.

The song Your Naked Body covers the same territory as Mother's Milk on Omniscience and The Great Annihilator though less brutally, as if filtered through the prose of one of Gira's inspirations, Paul Bowles. The mix is eerified by ghostly samples and distorted synths, just like on Low Life Form where pathological self-loathing surface again on what may be the darkest piece on Drainland.

Lyrically less disturbing, If You ... has a really jarring arrangement, rhythmically repellent, noisy and intentionally irritating with some spacious atmospheric segments in between the stop-start guitars. I normally skip this one. A disintegrating psyche fragments all too realistically on Why I Ate My Wife which ends in what sounds like a growl by Jarboe.

The last track, Blind, is my favorite on this album as it sounds like a take from the Burning World (1989) sessions. A melodic melancholy ballad, it returns to the subject of alcoholism in lines like: "Because when I'm drinking, I'm out of control/No I was never young, and nothing has transpired/And when I look in the mirror, I feel dead, I feel cold, I am blind."

Demented & morbid even by Gira's notorious standard, Drainland is not my favorite in his majestic legacy. I prefer all Swans work onward from the Children of God album - excepting the Body Haters CD - above this deranged disc. And yet, enough of his dark genius shines through to make it a minor classic.

Drainland confirms the wisdom of the new direction he took with Angels of Light, whose masterpieces like New Mother, How I Loved You and We Are Him express his tortured vision in a far more palatable, exalted and graceful way.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Makes Leonard Cohen sound like the Spice Girls 17. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Drainland on the surface sounds like the deep, brooding, depressing album that it is, but there is a certain power and realization that happens upon frequent listenings that bring a connection to artist and listener. "You See Through Me" is a brutally honest assessment of a dying relationship, sung by Gira in his dirge-like monotone with a spoken tapeloop of him having an argument with his lover. "I See Them All Lined Up" is a song of revenge that is played and sung in such a low-key way as to produce shivers in the listener. "Blind", the last song on the album, is sung sweetly and played much like a country/folk song: a confessional about the singer's failings. Sure, Gira enjoys wallowing in his misery, but the work is potent and unflichingly honest and he has no qualms alternating between sweet melody and cacophony. The music is ecletic in a Joy Division/Nick Cave/Dead Can Dance kind of way.

4.0 von 5 Sternen AMERICAN GOTHIC 26. Juni 2001
Von Guy De Federicis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the world of mobile homes, bad marriages and aging barflies. M. Gira's (Jarboe, Swans) solo project puts an electronic noise factor in Tom Waits-like ballads that collectively ask whether to pop open another beer or go meet the maker. It may be easy enough for Gira to plop a talk track on top of the opening, "You See Through Me", but the conversation from a young redneck couple about money and mothers-in-law becomes candid and frightening, like your eavesdropping on your best friends. The closing track, "Blind", is a lingering, soulful, folk delight of self-awareness and pride. The rest of it may sound like somebody kicking empty beer cans around, but snap open a new one and listen. Gira has something to say.

5.0 von 5 Sternen michael gira's solo album - the beginning of the end? 14. Januar 2000
Von damian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First of Michael Gira's solo works from 1995 onwards, Drainland is a beautiful example of michael gira solo talent, even though the separation between the two major swans figures is not so obvious and jarboe also plays in the recording of Drainland. Nevertheless the presence of another versions of track from the swans' 1995 album The Great Annihilator points at more concentrated sole projects - thus the result - a heroin-like sound experiment, maybe not that mystical like the skin albums, but nonetehless worthy. Highest acclaimations.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant 10. Januar 2000
Von Matthew - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Michael Gira's first solo outing without Jarboe is some of his best work to date. This album will completely absorb you into its miserable complex. From the opening clatter of "See Through Me" to the reflective vocal of "Blind," Drainland twists and turns and takes you through every recess of uncomfortable emotion. Fans of Swans' later work will not be disappointed. One of the most important albums of the decade!
