Colbert did an excellent job of pronouncing the title of the album.

that wasn't nearly as bad i was expecting. if you get past the cringey face makeup, the rest of it was reasonably good

agree with james providing a real nice dimension to it we've been missing

agree with old man jim looking quite thin, hope he's alright

Performance was great. I actually kinda dig the gospel theme and inspirational lyrics. We're gonna fly forever! On a starship you can't youse!

J+J sounded great. Looks like Jimmy has those colored hydraulic reso heads on the toms? @russ. Iha leads are a voice for sore ears

Jimmy looks way thinner here, it's kinda strange. He looked great here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ByX5GUCnzTB/

I'm torn on the gospel singers, as I think adding them to nearly any modern song makes things cheesey. My first instinct is to hate them. Their voices coupled with James' guitar towards the end, however, felt very Dark Side of the Moon. It works I guess.

Billy's makeup looks fine to me. It's loads better than the upside down flames shakily drawn over his eye bags.

I am sort of worried by how different Jimmy looks. It's weird.

The title IS a joke. Like many other SP jokes.

It's one of the main songs in particular from the new album that they try and sound current on. It's got that whole AwolNation/ Imagine Dragons vibe

no, no it doesn't

look it's a 6/10 song at best. but it does not sound like either of those bands. in fact i think it's probably the song on the album that sounds the least like those two bands

Question

One can only speculate now, why Jimmy got so thin:

A healthy food diet, being back on heroin...

The full album title is bad
The song is bad.
The Colbert performance is bad.
Billy's voice sounds bad.
The band look bad.

Good job, SP!

If you check his Instagram pics, even tho he was always gym fit, it seems like he put on some weight last September. Maybe that's the reason why he decided to go on a diet and is now slim. I'm hoping.

I like the song. In my opinion, it's the only risk taken by them. It's fresh, very unusual compared to their whole catalogue. L, and the BVs remind me of Roger Waters work as well.

If the song was by any band other than SP you wouldn't listen to it.

As for fresh, it sounds like a Richard Ashcroft song circa 2000. A hackneyed, laborious and plodding attempt to turn a dull, old white man song into some transcendental spiritual gospel shit. I'm sure if you played it to early 90's Billy he'd be like "what the fuck is this dreary crap?" No-one's buying Billy Corgan when he sings he is "going to fly forever" or "ride the rainbow" I mean... what the fuck is he talking about? It sounds like someone who doesn't connect with anything anymore trying to sound like he's connecting to something. By churning out derivative 'psychadelic' lyrics and painting his face like a fucking embarrassment.

It's the worst song on SOSB by some distance.

I don't listen to a song I don't like, it doesn't matter who plays it. If I skip songs from the classic lineup, why would I listen to a new song if I didn't like it?

You think Bill's writing has that level of depth to it?

To be clear, "it sucks on purpose" is your defence?

That was a great performance. One of the best of whatever iteration of sp this is. And I am normally very critical, and I've listened to the album maybe twice. Very little pretense except for the makeup. Just played the damn song.
