Question If Billy recorded a solo album, would you buy it?

Would you buy it?

Why or why not?

False, but fun to pretend.

I enjoyed TFE, but its been diminishing returns since then he disappears up his arcane rhymes that twixt tedium and boredom.

I liked the concept of TFE, i.e. the shoegaze guitars mixed with programmed beats. That was pretty cool, and some of those guitar sounds were amazing.

It wasn't really enough to make a whole album with though, and the idea had run thin by about halfway through. It needed more variety. Saying that, I've come back to parts of it I hadn't bothered with before, e.g. the chorus of Pretty Pretty Star is something really nice.

I no longer financially support this individual in any way, shape, or form. He's built his final mansion with my money.

I loved the sounds of TFE, but some of the songs were MEH. I can't handle pretty pretty star.

the last two acoustic albums have some nice moments. he should mix it up and keep doing them, there's gems that make them worth it.

I did not like the fat b0lly solo album, although TFE was really good. I remember getting into the show for free back in 2005 or so.

I loved TFE. I thought the production was great, Billy's vocals were really solid and the mix was good too. The songs were melodic and well written. The b-side "Tilt" had such a great sound and overall melody/feel to it as well. BC should of left off "to love somebody" and kept Tilt on the album.
