2-3 times i think
Not so much a "slam" on the quality of the song so much as a general not wanting to wear it out pre-album

Maybe half the days I go to the gym.

Let's see... I go about 5 days a week and it's been out 3 weeks roughly. Add in a few more the first day... Let's go with 10.

Probably five times. It's so hard to listen to because it is so LOUD. If you are listening to other things on earphones and it comes on, it's like a quick reach for the volume control. It doesn't need to be that loud.

That said, I can sing it in my head. It does have a strong melody. I just don't really like the performance / production.

Solara I listened to about the same number of times, for the same reasons.

Again enjoyable sometimes:




Can't wait for the video with the bunch of sad machines-zombies, highlighted by the editing and coloring from Linda Strawdingle.

Probably about 30 times. Maybe more.

I didn't care much for Solara, but SS is pretty awesome.

Say about fifteen. I quite like it, but I'm holding off too many further listens until the album's out.

I think I've listened to it two or three times?

I've listened to "Solara" 1.5 times, and that's only because there's no "stop" button at a concert. I couldn't even get through the thing on my first listen.

Cool to see that there are a few other fellow folks who have listened 5 or 10 times and are holding back for the album.

I can see why people wouldn't like this song. I can.

But it verrrrry quickly dawned on me that this jam was one of my Top 5 2007-current songs.

I haven´t got a desire to listen to it again.

Releasing the video 1 month later is the most stupid thing ever.
I gonna watch it once, as most, and that was it.

if you wanna have more clicks, release the song with the video. poor decision.


Besides I have neither heard solara nor silvery on any radio channel.
So obviously the SP are only alive for hardcore fans - whereas the rest gives a warm shit about them in 2018.

I wouldn't say it's a great song, but it's really good. Could be an anomaly cause I think Solara sucks, but this is probably the best RECORDED piece of music Corgan has done since like Tarantula

It may be nicely recorded but it is mixed and mastered terribly. Like, to an almost un-listenable level.

I put it on again after posting in this thread and (after turning down my phone about 30% from where it was on the last thing I listened to) I made it to the beginning of the first chorus and then I just couldn't go on.

I've skipped through it a few times. Didn't really do anything for me.

I'll check the video out though.
