i saw spun in the theatre like 3 months ago.

anyways, i hope the only zwan news is that they have a plane crash and billy and jimmy are the only survivors and they are inspired to start the pumpkins again

I really don't want Billy to get depressed and angry again. Not at age 36, come on. That would just be completely embarassing (see: Trent Reznor). I honestly think I wouldn't be able to listen to it if his new music went back to the teenage angsty stuff - and I don't even care that much about lyrics. I'd like to hear some darker music, but "dark" does not necessarily equal "depressing" or "angry".

"Riverview" is a perfect example of what I would like to hear. And I don't want Zwan to break up - yet - cause I think there's an enormous amount of potential there which is just not being utilized properly. So until I'm convinced they will never get better - and I cannot be convinced by just one album - I still think there is hope, particularly seeing as the Djali material heading our way is some of the best stuff they've done.

for some reason, the album version reminds me of kareoke. or a midi.

i agree. they were a lot better when they'd pop up every 2 months or so with an album and a half worth of new songs. i'd much rather have that than billy trying to sell out small arenas and theaters (and failing).

but if billy must stick to the huge venues, he needs to start utilizing his massive back-catelogue of songs. like, now. everyone's getting bored.

zwan kicks ass, maybe not as much as SP but you guys are gay for hoping they break up. i hope you all go to hell for wishing such bad stuff.

zwan is a great band, how you people fail to see this because it's not "Angry" enough is beyond me. I mean, people have to grow up at some point, and if your still full of teen angst/hate/anger, then kill yourself. christ. Or at least just pop in a linkin park CD.
Last time i recall anthing "angsty" from SP was Mellon Collie, really. That was 7 years ago! find a new band and get over it instead of bitching about it!

Some songs are better than others, but most are great. As far as musicianship goes, zwan are a terrific band.

You wish for a break up, they break up and for the next few months all you people will do is piss and moan about how they couldn't stay together. YOU ARE NEVER SATISFIED.

they are not even close to being in the same ballpark as sp. We wait for the breakup because Zwan, as of late, are on a drastic downward spiral.

all of you misguided people are so funny in the fact that you think a zwan breakup would 1. happen in the first place, and 2. reunite the pumpkins. they are one of the happiest bands out their at the moment, and have a lot of stuff happening in the future, so it would be near impossible to break them up. and the pumpkins will probably not play together for at least fifteen years from now, i can almost garantee that.

Billy looked really sad when they were on mtv2 a little half hour of their concert at the AM ring festival in germany :(

It pisses me off that people don't like Zwan just because it's "happy"

What's wrong with having music that embodies different emotions? People aren't in the same emotional state at all times. Why would you want all your music to be downtrodden? Jesus.

Exactly. What makes it even more ridiculous is that these people believe that they are superior to all the Zwan fans because of this. I think it's called not growing up. They are the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons, but y'know like "cooler" because they call people "gay" and stuff.

i think people have an aversion to it's forced happiness.
Like a sugar overload..
much of the time, zwan sounds like it designed to appeal to pop culture or the lowest common denominator and therefore it's difficult to appreciate or respect.
forced happiness or sadness are equally bad, but at least we were under the impression that the latter was genuine and therefore meaningful.
This wasn't a problem in the past, the beatles had their share of pop stylings, so I surmise that times have moved on and alternative people demand more intelligence from their music.
However even so, i think it goes beyond that. Zwan are just rather shallow both in a musical context and in general substance.
