I wonder where exactly the entry point is that these spiders are crawling up inside her from. One would reckon that it's not the mouth as it's "crawled up inside her. That leaves 2 obvious choices hahaha

Crying Tree is just utter shit, I really can't even comprehend how you could enjoy the studio version. It actually sounds like Teargarden
disagree with the first kinda like that song

but yeah Crying Tree is literally the worst Smashing Pumpkins song ever

Billy used to be really visceral with his lyrics, for lack of a better word. I mean. There is something bodily and tangible to that image (spiders crawled up inside her), yes in a very dark cringey way, but it's the kind of evocation he absolutely cannot reproduce now. It's like all his lyrics now were written by a church youth group

I thought the imagery being invoked here was as obvious as the line is cheesy

Imploding Voice has always been one of my faves

Again, the layers are there and generous and i will maintain against all challengers that the fuzztones of the punchy guitars achieved on this track are puro golden and unimpeachable

You don’t like the woozy sort of robotic guitar and industrial synth noises of the chorus even a lil bit? Always thought of like a Japanese sex robot that starts to malfunction halfway thru and is huggin you just a bit too tite

I love the intro guitar on The Imploding Voice. It's heavy and phasey and cool.

I think this is one of the songs that's supposed to be "live", where Glass is channeling God to the crowd or whatever.

Imploding Voice is a song I used to essentially skip every time & disregard as shit until one day I really just listened to it and thought "this ain't that bad"

Like a warped cyborg tribute to Cheap Trick or something

& to say all versions of BSBT are bad is truly a comment made by one who has not yet seen the light of the ARISING version

I never understood the the for Imploding Voice tbh. It was the first song I heard from Machina. Always liked it.

Why has the poll now change to Machina I only?
You canít keep moving the goalposts like this.

so... i just reread the op and... this shit don't make no sense at all. first i say side a is best because it has more good songs. then i "reconsider" and decide that side a is best because it has less shitty songs.

this is why you shouldn't drink cough syrup and read hp lovecraft.
