For me at this point, My Zeitgeist listening is strictly limited to: Tarantula, That's The Way, Pomp, Come On Let's Go and Stellar. That's a pretty nice handful of good songs, even if the rest of the material doesn't interest me anymore.

As for For God & Country, that's one of the songs like Appels + Oranjes where I feel like I'm one of like 5 people who actually really like it and can't understand why that's the case
Yeah, JC definitely rips it.

For what it's worth, I really liked the album at the time. I was genuinely excited by the new material and wanted to hear it live. It hasn't aged well for me though, but some music just doesn't.

Pomp studio version may be one of my least favorite Pumpkins tracks - the solo is great or whatever but that sure isn't gonna save it. Early live versions are great tho

Appel and Orange Juice rips. Did not care for it at first, but it sells that corny drum and bass shit pretty well.

It's one of the greatest things on Adore, imo, and there's not much else quite like it in their discog

I can understand angles behind disliking virtually any song off ZG, though I don't think the album's anywhere near as bad as it's made out to be, but Neverlost in particular is the only one on the standard version of the album I thought at launch and still think was fucking great.

Yeah I thought that was a weird-ass one to single out too but, you know, figured it'd have more of an "army" behind it than G&C

hehe!

Solara kind of sounds like it could have been the third single off Zeitgeist after Tarantula and That's the Way.

I feel like it almost has the vintage Pumpkins feel; the vocals are okay, the guitar parts all sound good, it's up tempo... but those lyrics just ruin if for me. "That's the way I care"? Srsly, Billy? I don't care that it's a love song; those are just shit lyrics unless you're trying to write bubblegum pop (and even then, I would think you need to try a little harder). Fuck sake, Fifth Harmony has better lyrics than that.

As for Neverlost... I might like that song if the chorus wasn't so similar to Blissed and Gone (a song that I like a lot better).
