Purple Blood + Dulcet in E

More of the same. The vocals on Purple Blood are better. Sounds Adore-esque in places.

Dulet in E, meh. At least it has guitars on it. Bit sick of that one-note high synth sound at this stage.

brothahi4L 11-20-2020 04:10 AM

Purple has at least a special vibe, I like the instrumentation. That´s how u should use electronic parts.

Dulcet is typically what i expected as track 4.... a boring, horrible synth based production with no highlights, repetitive and this typically post 2000 shitty billy singsang

eviltimeban 11-20-2020 04:16 AM

Be nice if the songs (not just these two) had longer intros. As it is Cyr has the longest (about 30 seconds). The rest of them have Billy coming in around the 10 - 15 second mark, if not straight away.

Yeah he just won't shut his yapper will he? At least he is enjoying his singing.

OK, so 2 more songs and both are mediocre-crap. What an album!

PURPLE BLOOD

I’m in love with your god
I’m in love with your fear
By the touch of your hand,
I’m far from here
Oh, for sunny days
When life was flat embrace
And might love come what may

Shot to ground
Set it off, like your phoenix I will fly
From dread dawns to sky

I’m in love with your god

Fever by your side
Sun is so you cannot rise
Fever by your side
Sun is so you cannot rise
I’m in love with your god
I’m in love with said fear
By the blush of your thorn
I’m lost but near
But, oh, for sunny days

Shot to ground
Set it off, like your phoenix I will fly
From dread dawns to sky

I’m in love with your god

Fever by your side
Sun is so you cannot rise
Fever by your side
Sun is so you cannot rise
Hunger greets my flees
So solace thunder agony
A fever by your side
Sun is so you cannot rise



___________


DULCET IN E

From our tree swings an apple
A pear or a candle
That once caught captive of your love
Is asked by dear time to sway
Is asked by dear time to sway

Never held, the memory unto
Our edifice as serves you
Is singly rhapsody and koan
Where a heart like mine belongs
Where a heart like mine belongs
No flower outlives its raindrop
No tower outlives its hilltop
I'm necromancer and your balm
Is it hearth of silent knowledge
From fount of easy bondage
I'm never more than you could want
Where a heart like mine belongs
Where a heart like mine belongs
Yes, where a heart like mine belongs

From our tree, swings an apple
A pear or a candle
That once caught is captive of your love
From our tree swings an apple
A pear or a candle
That once caught is captive of your love

No flower outlives its raindrop
No tower outlives its hilltop
I'm necromancer and your balm
Where a heart like mine belongs
Where a heart like mine belongs
Yes, where a heart like mine belongs

Lol no mate that’s not how you should use electronic parts, unless you’re a Depeche Mode cover band.

I’ve always liked TFE and the only positive thing of CYR is how fresh and listenable that album sounds now compared to this sorry mess of plastics, silicon and random female backing vocals.

pumpkins 11-20-2020 05:11 AM

So damn boring... I had enough.

thedeadofnight 11-20-2020 06:27 AM

Purple Blood probably had some potential but yet again, baffling production choices make this unlistenable. Those backing vocals are atrocious.

brothahi4L 11-20-2020 08:34 AM

Lol... it seems that i am the only one left to dig some songs. I like purple blood, but dulcet is this cheesy instrumentation that sounds like a song for kids.....

Overall we know that synth are all over the 20 tracks. No big diversity there.
Youtube comments overwhelming, how come?

Purple Blood is a good song if it had 1997 vocal mixing but I just can't understand how they listen back to this mix and think it's okay to release? Will someone just tell the fucking man to turn his vocals down? It's been 13 years of this already.

Woody 11-20-2020 10:47 AM

Incredibly, I like Purple Blood.

incubator 11-20-2020 11:00 AM

They're ok. I feel that they could both be modest hits if sang by a young woman with a nice big bum.

Dulcet in E. There's not really anything wrong it. Nice song.

Purple Blood. Stick a noisy tonnes of pedals and feedback solo about 2/3rds in and come back in at 3:15ish with some heavy fuzz guitar, noisy lead and maybe big acoustic drums for another go around of the chorus. Then everyone goes whoooo instead of "that's it?".

"Do the needful" as they say in India.

Overall, typical of this whole countdown thing. Couple of nice enough songs that are good as part of the album but not exciting or substantial enough to be singles. Mental release strategy to be honest.

But this is the modern style - we giving people what they want in this very specific regard, but doing our own thing otherwise... Zzzz

ninsp 11-20-2020 11:54 AM

Billy’s vocals on Dulcet are horrible. Purple’s alright I guess. I listened to about 20 seconds of both, like I’ve done the whole album, and came to the conclusion it’s trash.

Fuck you, Billy.

I'd say it's easily the best of the new songs. Reminds me a bit of Eye, which is a compliment.

But the idiotic vocal mix, we all know this is the way forever and forever.

Will be the same thing with the Machina reissue, although at least he was still singing mostly decently back then.

Dulcet is sub-Coldplay.

Every song just seems so disposable to me. They're all the same structure, same length, plodding drums.

In the old days Purple Blood would have built up to something in the end, maybe some Jimmy drums to change the dynamic, some distorted guitar.

dustrocck 11-20-2020 12:12 PM

I put on Live Drugs and felt much better immediately

White Spyder will become “Wie syde” with vibrato pushed to the front of the mix

GreenDogGlynis 11-20-2020 01:18 PM

Billy has been acting so ridiculous and defensive lately that its made it nearly impossible for me to actually enjoy this.

Your 2020 Smashing Pumpkins, everyone!

I must be crazy, but I'm starting to quite like the overall vibe of this record. ����*♀️

Are you crazy enough to update the machine somehow blog with Jimmy's Roland kit setup?

slunken 11-20-2020 07:06 PM

I like the vibe but it doesn’t deliver. There are too many bands!

killtrocity 11-20-2020 07:25 PM

Fucking garbage 0/10

So far the only song I like legitimately like is Birch Grove, and even that sounds like a boring Future Embrace reject

I suppose Dopemeine Addict is ok

These new ones are pointless though

houseofglass11 11-20-2020 08:48 PM

These two have grown on me after several listens. Dulcet is probably my favorite after Wrath.

srt4b 11-20-2020 09:49 PM

these songs are just offensive at this point.

Lol, is that what he's saying? I figured it was "We're high like my love" except with "love" pronounced like "low" in modern Billy fashion.

I listened with my good headphones and there is a barely audible "s" at the end, although I can't hear any "d" sound at all.

I actually like that part, it's a nice hook, but I'll never understand why he can't pronounce words properly.

Ram27 11-20-2020 11:34 PM

purple blood is pain. it's like a parody of a parody

the other one is listenable for like 10 seconds

i'm gonna kill myself
