Why is Bill still riffing on the EXCEEDINGLY UNPOPULAR Adore/Machina “bald man in make-up and a dress” outfit?

It looks bad. People don’t like it. The Zeitgeist overalls, dress-down Zwan, even the MTAE hoodie looked a lot less silly.

Jimmy playing the tambourine really is about all he did on this track. What a pay day.

To me it's pretty clear that this whole aesthetic was pulled from Drab Majesty. He made several flattering instagram posts about the band and I think they may have opened for SP last year a couple times. Now all of a sudden the music is basically a Drab Majesty clone and the visual aesthetic is all silver and goth just like them.

Yeah, good call. They are in the SS video too aren’t they? I always wonder what these bands have to do to -not- get attacked/dismissed by WPC and instead get his bald approval. I am assuming it has something to do with heaping massive amounts of praise on his latest work when they first meet.

My only reaction to these releases was:

I have to wait a few days trying to understand why this multimedia just happened.

He may not, but these look like personal, undiplomatic statements of himself.

There is a reason the Being Beige and Run2Me vids were removed, they had some pretty harsh comments. ...and low views.

Cyr, when compared to other post 2000 songs, is actually ok. When compared to other things I would actually listen to, it's not very good at all. I couldn't even listen to the entirety of The Color of Love because I got bored.

Now I love some cringe and this video has it. Especially Jimmy. And I love Jimmy a lot. We all know he didn't want to dance and probably hated it. I felt like I was cringing with him, not at him. Billy hardly phases me because this is just how he dances and I've known this since Ava Adore. Jeff I barely noticed existed as per usual. James manages not be cringe which is not surprising. So basically it's exactly in form with other things we've seen except...Jimmy dances.

I swear this is the most positively reviewed Pumpkins song in a long time and I don’t know why.
It has nearly 700K views in 3 days

Yeah it’s pretty crazy. It’s easily on track to get 1M in the next few days. The SV1 songs took much longer to hit that point and are both still shy of 2M... could be the biggest video since ... Tarantula!

Exactly

I think this love for these new tracks just shows how shitty 2020 is. People's tastes seem to have gone to shit too.
