Sorry but that wasn't wisdom or clarity. it was probably crack

It's definitely a somber tune, but it really works as far as I'm concerned. It sounded odd initially, but it's really a song that takes time to sink in.
Talalalalalalala la la and voices in chorus?

It sounds like a song from the The Lion King animation, youngest kids version.

O% genius on this song.

Tiberius is fine, but is it great? When I think of great SP songs I think of Rocket, Hummer, Muzzle. Not Tiberius.

Good question. It has to be something from the Machina sessions. Maybe Home or Age of Innocence.

That's The Way, Stellar, Zeitgeist (the song) and some of the Residency Songs are ok, but they don't come close to the best material from the Machina era

I thought Dorian was good even though everyone hated the repeated lyrics. Sounded like an Adore outtake and his vocals were strong on it.

Last actually great song was certainly on Mellon Collie. Everything after that has been a slow and steady decline in quality.

i always liked the Monuments title track a lot
and a handful of others from that album

What actually constitutes "great" or not is debatable i guess, but in terms of SP2 that stuff sure did give me hope at least

That's ridiculous. Adore has some of his best songwriting. Machina I and II have some great work too.

The lead part on Pinwheels was the last emotive, beautiful, notable thing he did

Those albums are really good and they certainly have a lot of songs I really like, but none reach the level of a porcelina, ruby or tonight tonight to me.

Also keep in mind this is entirely subjective and i'm drawing a very arbitrary distinction between what I consider 'great' and what I consider 'really good'

Adore and Machinas fall on the later imo. Whatevs 'sallgood.

Untitled, obviously.

There were some good tracks on Zeitgeist, TG & Monuments but nothing better than a b-side for the original line-up.

Probably something from Machina.

My most vivid Pumpkins memory was of them performing Home at St. Andrew's Hall in 1999. It was the first song of the an encore, we didn't think they were going to come back out. Billy's voice was so clear, you could feel every hit of Jimmy's toms, and it just felt like the guitars were floating over the crowd. They could really devastate a crowd back then. So, maybe that song.

Song for a Son is the last SP song I gave a shit about.

I haven't heard a note since Zeitgeist. It's depressing, as I remember scouring the dial up internets for unreleased gems and all of them being more amazing than the next; getting cassettes in the mail of really obscure songs and feeling like they could do no wrong.

Then I heard 'Solara', after skipping 2009-2018 and I guess that's what I get. What a dead band.
