pretty good version. I just do not understand why this guy knows how to make a song sound good live, but not in the studio anymore.

my feelings towards the band these days goes up and down, i absolutely loved this song when it first came out. but Mike Byrne may or may not become pretty good in a few years. im excited for the full band recordings coming out (one day). but to be frank, ill always love Jimmy, and the band could use him, forever. even with good replacments

That's The Way I always thought was a fairly underrated track, prob the best on Zeitgeist

I never understood the hate for this track. The acoustic bonus version from American Gothic is especially nice.

I do dig how much darker it got. Benefits from Billy not producing it.

Well, it's in a different key. Up a major third, or more accurately, down a minor sixth. So it lands in Eb minor instead of B minor. So the vocal sits higher, but the music sits lower.

There's actually a similar part to Jeff's on the fucking album, it's just buried. Listen harder.

Thanks for the info; I try not to speculate on those things because I know absolutely nothing about them.

But, I have no desire to listen to Zeitgeist at all, let alone "harder," and no amount of badgering or shaming will change that.

i knew it was definitely in a lower key when i first heard it, but because the vocal melody sits so close to where it used to be i didn't think they'd dropped the key quite so far as they had.

it makes sense though that people think this sounds more classic SP now - low grumbly guitars with high whiny vocals over the top and then something a little trippy in the second guitar. that's the formula, right?

Yeah, but theory lessons from another netphorian would be way cooler than just googling something.
