agree that he's racist

also listening to this again, i really like the song besides the verses, which are terrible. the instrumental part between the first a second choruses is really nice. i wish it were longer. just that part though. but the verses are so bad it completely ruins the song

instrumentally it aint that bad but still his vocals suck now

those saying Aeronaut is better I don't understand that song had nothing interesting going for it musically to distract from his vocals

Takeshi's vocals keep getting better. Dystopia/Vanishing Point is something else.

the song is better than Aeronaut but his vocals are still unpleasant to listen to.

but what he's singing about, and the themes presented in the video, just really make me feel for the guy and what he's going through. he's pouring his heart out in that video. it's all there

I could understand disliking this one in favor of the Plainsong version, seeing him as having ruined the song. Or because of the vocals, or the comparatively weak verses. I could understand the distate toward him seizing on a song he performed under the SP moniker that actually got a good reception to use to bolster his solo album.

But thinking this is worse than anything off Monuments? Or one of the worst things he's ever done? Nah. After that calculated crap this actually seems to like he's putting some effort in at the very least.

I am kind of offended by how bad the video is,
its like a film student trying to rip of digitally the feel and aesthetic of the old 90s videos but cobbling it together in a stupid way.

So mixed reviews then.

I do really like the Chorus but this should have been a heavy / rock song.

I hate to always be so negative, but Corgans really lost his charms. It just sounds like crud that some run of the mill guy would be strumming in a coffee shop or something
