Oceania because I was already let down by ZG and irreparably marred by TGBK so it couldn't hurt me anymore. Plus I think it's funny to hear Mikey drumming like a toy soldier.

1. Zeitgeist has better written songs

2. But for some reason, Oceania has a couple songs that I keep coming back to listen to (some of the only SP2/SP3) songs that I actually listen to.. Pinwheels and Oceania.

Gossamer is my favorite SP2/SP3 song. Too bad there's not a studio recording anywhere.

I would listen to a Oceania EP if it were rerecorded with Jimmy, but not if it were produced by Rick Rubin.

I can stomach a relisten of Oash, but cannot with ZG. That album literally broke me. There are better elements on it without a doubt, but the Billy Choir is acutely nauseating and the good parts don't add up to a quality finished product, like anywhere. The Celestials is a song I can at least frequently enjoy, but there's NONE on ZG proper that I feel that way about. But Mike is so bad.

They are like opposite ends of a terrible spectrum. Overly aggressive, but technically precise, cock rock image (with the audacity to use the SP moniker) vs lyrically bland, musically forgettable, but occasionally evocative wood nymph image (with the audacity to use the SP moniker).

Oceania would be better than ZG if it had Jimmy

I am sure it is just me, but they are the same album to me (in terms of song structure and sequence)

Quasar = Doomsday Clock
Panopticon = 7 Shades of Black
The Celestial = Bleeding the Orchid
(Violet Rays = Ma Belle)
My Love is Winter = That's The way my love is
One Diamond = Death From Above
Pinwheels = Stellar
Oceania = United States
Pale Horse = Neverlost
Chimera = Come on Let's Go
Glissandra = For God and Country
Inkless = Hummer .. uhm, Bring the Light
Wildflower = Pomp and Circumstances

I mean, they are not clearly the same songs, but the mood of the song-sequence sounds to me like they are both very similar...



(actually If you combine them, it could come out a decent album... maybe )

Tired eyes, closed for days.
There's no regret, cause there's no place.
I don't know what I believe, but if I feel safe, what do I need?
A home.
Revolution! Revolution! Revolution blues!
What will they do?
Revolution! Revolution! Revolution blues!
What will they do to me?
What will they do to me?
What will they do to me?
What will they do to me?
Dulcet tongues, whisper fast.
The future yearns; right now's the past.
Rouse me soon; the end draws nigh.
Whose side are you on?
Your blood you cannot buy.
Revolution! Revolution! Revolution blues!
What will they do?
Revolution! Revolution! Revolution blues!
What will they do to you?
Well, I, I feel all right, so tonight, I got to ask you why,
Why deny it?
It's no surprise; I've got to survive.
Freedom shines the light ahead,
I'll lead the last charge from bed.
I said my last rights,
I don't have to run scared no more.
Fight, I wanna fight, I wanna fight a revolution tonight.
I wanna fight, I wanna fight a revolution tonight,
At the light! At the light!
Do you wanna watch me die?
Let me be something good,
Let me prove something real like I should,
Let me embrace every single living thing,
Let me be every single moment I ever misunderstood.
This is the guy who wrote “Hummer.”

yeah it was about a year after i bought shitegeist (i was hella excited when it dropped, acted super into it) that i realized that the pumpkins sucked and everything post machina ii was more or less garbage.

those were dark days, dark days indeed.
