Solara sounded pretty cool.

It sounded better than the studio cut, but man Jimmy is really overplaying on the chorus.


I think the studio cut is just Billy and Jimmy. James really added a lot more...and finally, dinamics.

I really don’t like Solara at all.

Zero sounded tight. The half full arenas will be ready for that one.

Not the same. I listened to the previous album, I was even a fan of that album. And listened to the new one too.

Okay, but didn’t you continue to post about how it was shitty after your original post about how shitty it was? I’m just saying, on this dying board, 20% of the posts are people writing about what they like and 80% of all posts are antagonistic, and the smashing pumpkins are ass.

Sounds pretty refreshing after suffering through the entirety of Solara. Solara feels like it's 10 minutes long.

The Aeroplane Flies High is such a good listen. I've got the deluxe version on, so I'm skipping a bunch of the demos that are included there, but the b-sides and the live cuts are just great. Such good material in there.

And then this fucking pops up on my twitter feed: https://news.avclub.com/remember-when-b ... 1826829526

Quote:
For those who may not remember the strange reflections of a ’90s alt-rock king, last October Corgan stopped by the Howard Stern show, and during the ensuing interview announced he had once seen a shapeshifter. He was awfully cagey on details at the time—simply saying he was with someone at one point, and then “suddenly you turn around and there’s somebody else standing there”—leaving us to wonder about the circumstances of such a supernatural encounter, our curious minds unfulfilled. (“I wanted more than life would ever grant me,” you probably said at that moment.) Well, this week Corgan returned to Stern’s show with the rest of Smashing Pumpkins in tow, and he offered up another tidbit of this 100 percent real experience.

In the above clip from The Howard Stern Show, the host presses Corgan on the story, with It’s-William-now-not-Billy saying, “The story is even more fantastical than you think.” Despite the singer informing Stern he’ll tell him all the details privately off the air, Stern keeps pushing (“I wanna make news again with you”), leading Corgan to make the following admission:

“The person was naked.”

Needless to say, it doesn’t take long for Stern to make the obvious inference. “Wait a second—were you in bed with the shapeshifter? Were you making love?” he asks, an understandable jump given the few circumstances in this modern world in which we’re alone with another naked individual. Corgan continues to avoid confirming or denying—bored by the chore of saving face, you might say—as Stern presses him to admit it was a lover. Undaunted by the stonewalling, Stern pulls in Corgan’s bandmate James Iha, who is likely trying so hard to cleanse the regrets of having to weigh in on the issue. “Who do you think it is?” he asks, to which Iha diplomatically replies, “I have no idea.”

Corgan dated Tila Tequila for a while, and she's also all about that shapeshifter / Lizard creature conspiracy theory shit.

Because of a question proposed in the Nu-Metal tourney, I revisited Machina.

It's a super frustrating album. Thera are a ton of great moments on the album, but there's just too much extra instrumentation and effects.

Even the really good songs like This Time and Wound would have been better without all the fuzz and effects on Billy's vocals.
