i'm not surprised that a sex crazed mexican like esty wouldn't be sophisticated enough to hear the similarities between this song and MCIS material. go back to selling shoes or whatever it is you do, stop talking about things you don't have the ability to judge.

It might as well have been a zwan song. It COULD have been written for them, since it sure as hell wasn't written with sp in mind. In fact, i'm sure he was just trying to write a radio friendly single, regardless if it sounded like sp or not.
I understand what you're saying. I just don't agree with the notion that a Billy song that doesn't sound like classic SP might as well be considered akin to a Zwan song. Even the "Pumpkin-y" Zwan songs didn't sound anything like this one, IMO.

Thumbs up

Tarantula is a ten minute song condensed into 3:44 of hilights. When I first heard the opening moments of the song all of my fears of it being some formulaic made for radio failure pap we're put to rest. This song just plain rocks in an uncompromising fashion. Unfortunatly, the "pop" element of Tarantula falls a little flat due to Corgan's akward vocal delivery and the lack of memorable lyrical hooks, but there are just way too many vintage Pumpkin moments in this package, that I'm very happy with this as the first single.

Hopefully not every song on the album will be this shallow, it's just nice to know they can still rock out.

FINAL VERDICT: "hacking" into that idiot's photobucket account and leaking the artwork was more satisfying than this song. but that whole escapade and the resulting news coverage was massively satisfying.

Also, I may be in a crazy bliss right now, but this can be considered one of the best Pumpkins rock songs.

Guitars & Drumming are great. Harmonious vocals sound a bit forced.

Reverse echo ftw.

Yes im not acting like its different, im saying that it seems more TFE unfocused then it does most SP stuff. Like he just wrote it and it encompasses a general vibe rather than being specific. Most detail seems to generic and impersonal the way it reads. But I haven't grasped all the lyrics yet. I am also kinda dissapointed with the lack of emotional edge portrayed in Billy's voice. Even poor/mediocre lyrics can be dressed up if Billy uses his range to make it show he feels them, I don't know what happened to it after Machina. Adversely good lyrics and sentiments will seem flaccid if he doesn't put that emotion in.

While I say this though, I have become used to Billy's more mature restrained voice, and I still like it. But he misses that edge, the edge which personifies his dialect and gives it the character to manifest itself emotionally in the listeners mind.

Hmm I'm on my second listen now. I was optimistic but I have to say I'm not that impressed at the moment, I really don't like the chorus. Maybe a better quality version will change my mind.
