I have mixed, complex feelings about this record. Which I suppose is better than "It's alright, 3/5".

It’s a 0/10 and I’m not exaggerating. There’s nothing redeeming about it and it is unlistenable

Both of these takes are true.

Purple Blood and SYT alone put it above a 0/10 for me. But you have to basically throw yourself into it to get anything back, and given the thousands of other artists you could be listening to, this is a wretched album. But in other ways it's his best SP album since Zeitgeist. Complex feelings.

0/10 is unfair.

There's nothing really wrong with it. It sounds great. The songs are all good to great (I don't care for Haunted).

It just doesn't have the variety or sense of adventure to justify its existence as the new double album by The Smashing Pumpkins.

Lol nice how you blatantly ignore the general consensus and instead choose to present your minority opinion as a universally accepted fact.

Every song is the same and has the same unlistenable vocals. They’re all throwaway 3 minute tracks.

In my opinion - and I'd like to stress that this is just my opinion and everyone is free to have their own opinion and they are just as valid as my opinion..

I think (and again I'm completely willing to accept that I might be wrong on this.. but what does wrong even mean?? who can even say what is right and what is wrong??) that 0/10 isn't fair but again that's just my subjective opinion and maybe Ninsp is right but then again it's only his opinion so who really knows. Well anyway I absolutely respect his opinion but I don't agree with it in my opinion.

Cyr is, I imagine, like having sex with someone who's 11/10 extremely attractive but doesn't like you and just kinda lays there. Also their voice is a bit too loud.

So you're saying Cyr is like marriage?

You know the expression there’s no such thing as bad sex or bad B0lly Crogan music? Your CYR is like sex with the corpse made of sandpaper!

Just my opinion of course (and a Jon Stewart monologue rip-off)

You can hear how much effort he put into Cyr, even if the results are not that impressive, so it flopping must have been a blow. After the Big Tour he has been delusional about their comeback success potential, methinks.
Ah yes, but as I said somewhere else, he'll excuse it away. "People weren't ready for it". "Ahead of it's time". "It was too different". "It didn't have guitars" etc etc.

It's not because it was too long, all sounded the same, was boring, lacking colorur, difficult to listen to vocally, and didn't sound like a band at all. Not for Billy.

I still listen to it about once a month. It's still a 5/10.

When I first listened 4/10.

But it has really grown on me and I now rate it around 9/10

A pop classic. Criminally underrated.

Hmm let me think ...


Killer classic vibes? Polished instrumentialism? Profound lyricism/wit with mystical undertones?

I listened to it every day for about two weeks after release. It still slips into my music listening about once a week. It's a 7.5/10 or maybe even an 8 for me. There are elements at play that are like, uniquely annoying. But the fact remains most of these songs have grown on me.

Hidden Sun is a great track. Haunted -> Hidden Sun -> Schadenfreud is a really good stretch.

Took a break from bollyboy. I had another listen yesterday and it is still bland, but somehow so bad and cheesy that i could make it to song 14. It is too long....forgettable.. i have no desire to listen to it
