Watered down, middle of the road, lacking any great melodies and no balls. And when will the Rick Rubin illusion just die already? Boy am I glad I didn't pay $200 to hear covers of Stairway To Heaven And Space Oddity.
Billy Billy Billy....well...the easy part would be for me to rant on how you have 1-way over produced this album and just like the first comment states...your vocals are just WAYYY TOO MUCHHH!! Grab that knob Billy, go from an 11 to maybe a 7, bc we can still understand you and it doesn’t take away from the music. I knkw ur not trying to recreate the days of Siamese or melon but could you at least try a little? For some artist, it’s not about making money it’s about what they wanna make now that they have the recognition and the know how and money, but even I can piss in a jar and label it as Apple Juice and sell it, but I wouldn’t be doing anyone a favor by doing that. Long story short, love the music love the voice but one of the 2 must be mixed better and turned down, way down...and drop D that mug Billy Boy!! Come-maahn!
There was about two decent songs but the rest was just too light
Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts) is quite possibly one of my favorite Pumpkins songs now... Something so haunting, familiar, and nostalgic about it -can’t wait for my CD to arrive! Ready to do some Smashing.
I think Billy has continued to have solid music for 30 years. I can’t wait for another tour with a mix of old and new.
This is amazing love it.
Love the new songs and looking forward to the LP release! Solara and Silvery have a musical aura that harkens to the past but looks to the future… the perfect combination for a fresh take on this band’s current chapter. It’s good to see Jimmy and James back in the fold creating the magic again with WPC. The Shiny tour was an amazing spectacle too! Something every fan should have witnessed. If that tour and this collection of great new songs is any inclination of the future of this band, it’s going to be an exciting creative journey! And we should go along for the ride!!
Pretty good so far.
Billy Corgan is a polarizing figure. His music is either great or annoying. What I think we all long for is soft/high pitch vocals we see in Gish, Siamese, Melloncholy (a few tunes) and on B-Sides like Whir, Glynnis, and Obscurred. The music here is listenable but I agree with the first reviewer regarding the vocals. However, I think that he has been humbled by his lack of success as he gets older. Nearly 30 years in the business is not bad. Clearly, Stephen Malkmus got in his head in 93/94 (it has been the same since).
