This song...
Lyrics= delightfully chilling
Billy's vocals: Here he uses a range of styles...melodic, whining, that little fade thing he does, screaming...and they all work and keep things interesting
Drumming= PERFECT, I love Jimmy
Guitars: Mastered! In this song the guitars take you on a journey through a dark, crushing hell and spit you out into a more empowered and psychedelic place.
Outro=great place for a long fade out! I usually hate these but this song requires some time to process after listening. Then that sweet little guitar jam at the end:D

The song is epic, what more can I say..

I don't understand why people here love this song so much. It's really overrated.



....



:D

But seriously, the song rules.

Nah, this song is NOT overrated. It deserves its reputation. The music itself epically powerful. The guitar effects blend and intermingle very naturally and wholistically, contributing as a whole to the dreamy soundscape in a way that few arrangements can actually achieve.

Porcelina is better by a very long shot.

Yeah, the music during porcelina's verse is somewhat weak but the bridge and chorus kick ass

A prime example of Jimmy's drumming making a good song a great song

Simply the BEST pumpkins song ever!!!!

Perfect, complete......I wish he could make songs like that again..

It is incredible how the studio version rocks and the live version rocks even more.

Dark and hell are not words I would use to describe the guitars in this song. Crushing, yes.








Also, you forgot "lie-burning"

Hello Kitty Kat and Geek USA blow this shit out of the water. I honestly think MCIS and songs like this are when the Pumpkins started to spoil.

I don't listen to much pumpkins. A smattering of live tracks and stuff from demo tapes is all really.
