Good observation, very ELO. This one will have to grow on me. The drums are mixed really low and sound more like a drum machine than Jimmy, he might have found himself being asked to drum for a genre of music where his otherwise legendary rhythmic creativity fails him. Meanwhile that monotonous string part is mixed really high. I give Billy credit for broadening his horizons and featuring a vocal chorus, but I think they way they mixed this track really gets in the way of me wanting to hear it more than twice. The drum part is boring, but if it was higher in the mix, it would be a groovy track.

First reaction is that it's the most interesting thing to come from the "shiny shitshow" so far

i'm sure a lot of people aren't gonna like the "whoa whoa whoas" but at least they're trying something different here - more interesting than another Zeit C-side or 1979 pt 4

the hi-hats keep it from sounding flat-out drum machine to me, & honestly after the last 2 this may be the most organic-sounding as far as the drums go

Worst offense as far as I can tell is that first "hoooo-WAHoWAHoole" in verse 1 - that's the best take they had for that? Really? O well, I'll get over it I suppose, & yeah the gospelish vox in the chorus were def a nice touch

Very 70's sounding. Sounds like an Ogilala leftover a'la Aeronaut or Zowie.

I kind of like this song. The "uplifting" lyrics are the worst part. I really like the strings a lot and also think the guitars in this one sound great.

I'll see how tolerable it is after a few more listens. It's pretty exciting to hear something which sonically is an immediate departure from safe territory for Bill, since safe territory is all he does the last 15 years

of the 3 songs this one is most complimented from that "Rubintastic" drum sound, as well

unfortunately, this confirms SP2 is SP2 with or without iha (or jimmy). it's just subpar in comparison and has its own distinct flavor.

Sorry...

Hate it.

This isn't music I listen to.

Each single has been worse and worse.
That woo-wowoo crap is annoying.

Disappointing, sorry Billy, I'll grab my Machina reissue and be on my way.

He was doing a lot of mis-guided "Beatlesque" stuff pre-Oceania but on this one he actually kinda got it right. First listen sounded more like Primal Scream or something to me than Smashing Pumpkins. That reminds me, I gotta listen to that last PS album already

Yeah, me too. I don't hear James or Jimmy really in this. Still comes off as the Billy Corgan Experience and James and Jimmy are set to neutral.

One thing I like about the track is it reminds me a lot of Fitz and the Tantrum's first album, which was a musical high point of the 00's, this song in particular https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj6L...97dDq&index=10 , though I like this FatT track a lot better.
