Children Of God ‎(Cass, Album). God, we need soon a vinyl repress of this jewel. Necessary to live if you are a poor melancholic soul. With Unknown Pleasures (Joy Division), Juju (Siouxsie & The Banshees), Bauhaus 1979-1983 (Bauhaus), Only Theatre of Pain (Christian Death) and The First and Last and Always (The Sisters of Mercy) that is possibly the best record of DARK music of the history.

Children of God (1987) further expanded Jarboe's role, acting as a foil to Michael Gira's tales of suffering, torture and humiliation. The stories portrayed here, however, are ever the more unusual, given their juxtaposition-and admixture-with religious imagery  . The Burning World was the first Swans album to feature more conventional pop melodies. Gira's lyrics still favored themes of depression, death, greed and despair, but were actually sung, rather than the chanting or shouting typical of earlier material.

Children of God is the fifth studio album by American post-punk band Swans. The album marks a change in direction from Swans' early work. More tracks utilize acoustic guitars and more melodic vocals. The lyrics also focus more prominently on religious themes. Personnel Michael Gira – vocals, keyboards, acoustic guitar, album cover concept and design, production Jarboe – vocals, backing vocals, piano, keyboards N. Westberg – electric guitar, acoustic guitar Algis Kizys – bass Theodore Parsons – drums, percussion.

Children of God is the fifth studio album by American experimental rock band Swans. It was released on October 19, 1987, through record label Caroline. Children of God was re-issued along with the World of Skin compilation (minus the covers) on CD in 1997 as Children of God/World of Skin. On this re-release, the original album version of "Our Love Lies" was replaced with the version included on the Love Will Tear Us Apart EP. Also, the re-release added "Damn You to Hell" and "I'll Swallow You" (under one title as "I'll Swallow You") from the New Mind single as a bonus.

Children of God, one of the band's strongest releases, established Gira as an Old Testament tyrant obsessed with the nature of love, human frailty, and the midnight beauty of black orchids. Later, with the addition of Jarboe, Gira brought more varied sounds into the mix, melding hooks and spatial variation to the unwavering rhythms.
