The first ten tracks of this rare compilation come from the 1989 album The Burning World which is musically gentle and melodious but lyrically and atmospherically extreme, especially the tale of despair God Damn The Sun and their spooky interpretation of Steve Winwood's Can't Find My Way Home, hypnotically sung by Jarboe as is I Remember Who You Are. A lilting, tuneful ballad, Saved has a spiritual feel with the expression "sheltering sky," which, together with Let It Come Down, reveals the inspiration of Paul Bowles. The album Love of Life contributes The Sound Of Freedom, No Cure For The Lonely, the title track and God Loves America. The Sound of Freedom is a formidable poetic excursion infused with the majesty of The Most Unfortunate Lie from White Light from the Mouth of Infinity plus a potent rhythmic momentum & haunting imagery. Driven by pounding drums & layered guitars, Love of Life is one of the most striking serious rock songs of all time. In contrast, the slow, introspective and acoustic No Cure for the Lonely and God loves America are philosophical musings of fragile beauty. From White Light From the Mouth of Infinity come the impressively arranged Song for the Sun and Power and Sacrifice, a torrential guitar onslaught. The distinctive guitar textures of Gira's ‘Red Version’ of Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart turn the legendary dirge into a surprisingly melodic & rhythmic track, more tuneful and polytonal than the original in which the monotone vocals suffocate the melody. Covering the years 1989 to 1992, Forever Burned not only contains the entire Burning World masterpiece but in addition, the more accessible tracks from the two early 90s albums of blistering rock plus the extraordinary Joy Division interpretation. The album is thus essential for the devoted fan of Swans, Gira, Jarboe and Angels of Light.
