Michael Gira - Drainland (1995)


Really overlooked Michael Gira solo album. The album is a lot more indicative of his work to come with the Angels of Light, with the highlights for me being a stunning reinterpretation of "Where Does A Body End?" entitled "Where Does Your Body Begin," the surprisingly uplifting "Your Naked Body" and "Blind" (which he later re-recorded for his album I Am Singing To You From My Room). The rest is of course really great too, and even includes some callbacks to the Children of God era.

  3. I just love this kind of solo album. I would like to know more about its production 'cos there are to many critics about it, specially of Angels of Light.
