Default Worst song on SAOSBV1LPNPNFNS?

OK, I've now listened to the whole 30-something minutes a few times now and am pretty convinced that I've found my least favorite.

Curious to see what the group consensus is...

Also, thread title is part of my new favorite part of this band, casually referring to the FULL title of their recent works. (Try using "Teargarden By Kaledyscope Volume 2: the Solstice Bare" sometime in a conversation with another human, it's wonderful.)

KOM is the worst one. It could've been a good song for someone else.

Travels / With Sympathy are probably the best, though in recent weeks Alienation has come up higher for me. Unlike for most people, from what I can gather!

just clicking on this thread and looking at that hilariously lengthy abbreviation and thinking about the entirety of what "The Smashing Pumpkins" has been and thinking about that stupid fucking title and the dumb shitty album full of garbage music that shouldn't exist and what a fucking dickhole billy is and looking at the morbid formatting on this paleolithic Vbulletin messageboard that i joined when I was 15 and now i'm 29 and my knees hurt and my life sucks... it kinda makes me sad y'know.

Alienation is the most boring, but Seek is the most offensively bad.

It has quietly slipped under the radar that Knights of Motzo is the worst album opener Billy has put out.

THIS. I think I could tolerate Malt Balls if it was just one of many songs on an actual full length album; an attempt (however misguided) to be more experimental that sits somewhere in the middle or towards the end. But by making it the album opener and releasing it as a single, itís almost as if Billy is saying to his fans, ďOh, you hated Widow Wank My Mind but you were excited that I got James and Jimmy back? Well, FUCK YOU, hereís a song thatís even more annoying, and James and Jimmy contributed to it! Hahahaha!Ē

This is really what we should've gotten, in complete made-up ideal world:

1. Hieroglyphic (kicks off with a Cherub-esque drum roll, a groove based song and a killer opener)
2. Marchin’ On
3. Silvery Sometimes
4. Blurred (soft dreamy acoustic-based song like Whir)
5. Travels
6. Verla (7 minute epic, hints of Porcelina and end of Soma, amazing JC drums)
7. Solara
8. Seek and You Shall Destroy
9. Plunge (a James Iha rocker, with Iha on vocals)
10. With Sympathy
11. Knights of Malta
12. Oh So Bright (instrumental, akin to Mellon Collie but full band)

Holy shit Widow is better than KoM....

Consider the fact, that Widow would be an improvement in the one spot. Jesus Christ.

1. "Widow Wake My Mind"
2. "Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)"
3. "Travels"
4. "Solara"
5. "Alienation"
6. "Marchin' On"
7. "With Sympathy"
8. "Seek and You Shall Destroy"

I feel like immediately disliking half the album and essentially forgetting another quarter is problematic
