Default Gossamer was the best thing to come out of SP2, hands down.

I didn't appreciate it back in 2007, but now it's so refreshing to see the band doing something experimental and challenging considering they'll likely never do a Silverfuck/Transmission/Gossamer type jam ever again.

Extraordinarily dynamic but not really the "best"

this song was either a perfect encapsulation of everything wrong or everything right w/ SP2

personally, I prefer Stellar

If Strength in Numbers (I'm assuming this is one of the songs he mentions in Inside the Zeitgeist as a demo that just sounds like another old era of Pumpkins) Stellar, and Gossamer had been on Zeitgeist proper, it would've increased the esteem of that album so much.

Just imagine, if Gossamer didn't exist, then neither would this thread.

Gossamer was overly long and self indulgent, both qualities that Took looks for in a dad.

Yeah, I would say Gossamer, Stellar, Sunkissed and Starz were the high points of SP2. I also have a soft spot for COLG, Again, United States and Zeitgeist (the song).

you're right, i imagine it's a very long & arduous process - but what's that got to do with the fact of Zeitgeist being the best SP album?

Fucking loved Gossamer since day one, that 07 tour was sick. It got a bit saturated after that.
