That's true, the instrumentation is a nice break from all the fuzz, it could've easily been another big guitar song. Vocals are top class.

I really prefer "side 1" of SD album to "side 2". The run of songs from Cherub to Soma is breath-taking. There's less to impress on side 2 I feel. Perhaps what needed to be said was already said. I feel Silverf**k is just sort of over cooked though it has some really great moments in the breakdown. Mayo aside, the run from Geek to Luna is just not as strong.

I always skip Disarm, Spaceboy, Sweet Sweet, and Luna. They're great songs, but I'd prefer to stay always rocking never stopping these days.

Yeah when you think of the quality of songs knocking around then, e.g. Frail and Bedazzled. It wasn't even a b-side! Just sitting unreleased ("just sitting there") and if Pisces hadn't happened it would never have come out. Blue / Starla are really more Gish era but there is that cross over period that included stuff like Drown, Moleasskiss etc.

2. Bleeding the Orchid
3. Zeitgeist
4. Tom Tom
5. Lightning Strikes
6. The Chimera
7. Oceania
8. Pale Horse
9. Glissandra
10. Inkless
11. Being Beige
12. Tiberius (alt mix)
13. One and All (alt mix)
14. Silvery Sometimes (Goats)
15. Solara
16. With Sympathy
17. Purple Blood
18. Anno Satana
19. Save Your Tears
20. Birch Grove
21. Wrath

22. Zowie

It's not all bad, Bill. This is a good time. A lot more ZG/TG tracks would make the cut if the mix wasn't toxic.

Let yourself enjoy Cyr. Treat yourself. Give yourself over to it.

You will be rewarded.

I feel like Billy had found himself again, a bit more than before at least.
Assuming now being an old man and a proud daddy but finding somehow a new role to be playing irreverent teenage music.

And Quiet is fuckin a epic song.

No mention of the zwanesque Owata, not once. That's probably the best song penned by our kid post-TFE.

Owata is one of the best singles he wrote post-2000.

It’s a shame a studio version doesn’t exist.
