Oceania's just an uninspired attempt at dusting off the ole tried tested and true tricks of Corgans repertoire. At least monuments is just a noble attempt at trying for some new directions.
I'm a drummer though, and the drumming on Oash sucks and sounds so copy and pasted together. As a Motely fan I definitely hear Tommy's vibe coming through on Monuments and think they did a good job blending styles.
