Purple Blood features some of WPC's worst vocals. You have to give it to the man, he has guts. I would be mortified to let people hear my weak voice break apart trying to hit middle of the road notes. Also, the acoustic picking line hidden in the mix is a slightly altered Being Beige. I am not sure how any musician could listen to this track and think it was releasable.

Funny, I actually think Purple Blood sounds very good, especially because his vocals are more oldstyle than the usual.

I actually like that part, it's a nice hook, but I'll never understand why he can't pronounce words properly.
After listening to the song a couple of times, I now hear

WHERE A HEART LIKE MINE BELONGS

That is what he is saying

I like dulcet despite the terrible verse lyrics tbh

basically the verse sucks but the rest of it is pretty good, except that weird one note synth thing, that sucks too

I do not like Purple Blood though

still sticking with the assessment that this album is way better than most of what has come out recently (from bc/sp) and way better than shiny 1

You know the music is bad when even the online pirates stop uploading these tracks.

I don't like the style of Dulcet.. but out of the Cyr shitpile of songs.. I'd say Dulcet is my favorite so far.. having said that.. I've only listened to it a couple times and don't really feel any pull to keep listening.. that's how bad all these songs are.. ugh..

remmeber the old days when you heard a SP song and couldn't wait to listen to it over and over and over.. it's the complete opposite now..

now it's like get excited.. oh! a new song.. only to hear it and feel disgusted, embarrassed, and repulsed.. and never want to hear it again.. because the songs are so bad.. the production.. the style.. and in most cases Billy cannot write a good song anymore.

FAAAR FROM HEEYAAAARRRR

Nobody pronounces "here" like "HEYAAARRRR".

Guy sings like he's doing an impression of a 17th century bard or something.

From a tree swings an apple au pair. Also, the ohuhhhhh bit after he sings 'heart like mine' is straight out of the lion king.

Just utterly fucking atrocious. Also, when did he forget how to end songs.

This album is going to get panned so hard and won't make the top 50, in spite of all the obsequious little weasels buying 12 versions.

TFE got mixed reviews, I think this will be more or less universally slated.

I actually love The Future Embrace and damn near hate this. Perhaps I wouldn't hate it if it was some modern pop band, but I would certainly not like it much or choose to listen to it.

If this gets panned, that's 3 for 3 strikes against Bill's electronic-synth style albums.
4 if you inklude Teargarden... more if you inklude Siddhartha and... I wanna say, Aegea?

Do you think Bill might have any introspection and realise this style doesn't work for him?

Used a k to avoid censorship.

Pumpkins nowhere near top 40 on any platform's alternative charts. Probably means they're nowhere near top 100 on a general chart.

I really like Purple Blood. Best song so far.

‘Fever by your side , sun it’s so you cannot rise’

First time Pumpkins has sent shivers down my spine for years.

It’s weird how every song just abruptly ends like he couldn’t be bothered to end it with any dynamics. Just 3 minutes of talk singing over some random electronics and then bam “the song is over”.

I prefer 'The black sun never sets' on Ora Pro Lucifer by Behmoth, a song that's at 666 (or 616 if you're educated in such things) better than Purple Cum.
