The World of Skin compilation combines Skin’s first, Jarboe-sung album Blood, Women, Roses with the second Skin release titled Shame, Humility, Revenge where Gira is supported by Jarboe’s backing vocals. The sonic architecture of these two albums differs markedly. The first has Jarboe in gospel blues mood on quietly intense keyboard/piano ballads while the second sees Gira’s baritone taking up tunes and narrative lyrics with spectacular results. The alternating tracks by Jarboe and Gira work surprisingly well. The tone and texture of Skin remain highly distinctive against all the explorations.
The World of Skin (originally Skin) was a side project of Michael Gira and Jarboe. This project portrayed a more acoustic folk-based dimension of their work, similar to the Swans' The Burning World. They released two albums and 2 12" releases as Skin: Blood, Women, Roses and Shame, Humility, Revenge were the albums and Girl: come out and One Thousand Years were the 12"s.
This album blends the first two (World of) Skin albums Blood, Women, Roses of 1987 and Shame, Humility, Revenge of 1988 in a way that finally individuates the character of this collaboration between Michael Gira & Jarboe. Both albums were recorded in London from October to December 1986. As separate works, the first had Jarboe on lead vocal and the second Gira. The sequence of tracks now integrates the two so that the voices alternate most of the time.
World of Skin is less accomplished, its quiet introspection lacks the maniacal propulsiveness of Swans. On the plus side, tracks like "Breathing Water" and "One Small Sacrifice" anticipate Gira's later work with Angels of Light, albeit in a more skeletal, funereal form.
The mood is set (ha, ha) So you already know what's next (uh-huh, ah) TV on blast, turn it down, turn it down Don't want it to clash With my body screaming out (no, oh-oh) I know you hearin' it (hu-uh-uh) You got me moanin' now. I got a secret that I wanna show you, oh I got a secret so, I'mma drop em to the floor, oh No teasin', you waited long enough Go deep, I'mma throw it at you Can you catch it? Don't hold back You know I like it rough Know I'm feelin' you,.
