Where is the best place to start, etc.....
Early period: Cop
Later period: The Great Annihilator
...and throw in the live album Children Of God for good measure.

best two-cd collection in the world. everyone should own it.

With mega slow doom riffs, or for the later more poppy stuff Soundtracks for the Blind, which is personally my favourite Swans album as I love the constant shift in styles on it.
