The bass on the 2nd section of GATGC justifies Darcy's being in the band/existence.

i love how people dont necessarily appreciate good instrumental moments by certain musicians, but instead state that they are great based on a section in a certain song in which their present is singled out, or very prominent

i think hmm should have been left off the album.

the guitar parts are mostly awesome on machina and show a musical maturity and vocabulary that totally blows away all previous work by the band. unfortunately the production and the fact that sp was a band on the decline overshadow the actual music.

i just think they stopped sounding like a band after 1997.

adore is my favorite album though.

i'm a mess!

"D'arcy left the band towards the end of recording. According to interviews at the time, D'arcy had "completed her work" on the album,[2] but later statements by Corgan have downplayed her role in Smashing Pumpkins recordings.[3] The closing track, "Age of Innocence", was recorded after D'arcy's departure in November 1999 at the Village Recorder, and was the last addition to the album."

Unless you're assuming Corgan is lying.

Which I guess wouldn't be a completely new thing.

i think she probably played most of the parts. there's a gentleness and naivety to the bass playing that just sounds like darcy to me, rather than billy.

I've always thought Imploding Voice -> Glass and the Ghost Children -> Wound was one of the great track sequences in SP's catalogue.

Just because she played the bass guitar and recorded what we hear doesn't mean she WROTE those bass parts. What "sounds" like D'arcy is an irrelevant statement, we have absolutely no idea what songs D'arcy actually wrote. There is no way you can tell me that the bass on AoI sounds sooo much different than the bass on any other Machina song. Sorry, Fail.
