I listened to "United States" the other day, and it's a good track, even if the vocals could be better.

I don't think I want to listen to the album beginning-to-end, though. Maybe just put on one of the better tracks every now and then between listening to other stuff.

I liked Zeitgeist when it came out. When I put it on in recent years I hear the crappy production.. but in general it's not bad.

The live version of God and Country is good.. the album version sucks.

Gossamer is the best song of SP2 and it should have been on this album but it wasn't.. how dumb.

let me think what other notes about this album..

Starz is trash

Zeigeist as a whole is 50x stronger than Shitty and So Bright.

I don't mind "Starz." It's not amazing or deep, but it's catchy.

I actually like the album version of "For God and Country." @ Me.

"Neverlost" is a top-tier SP2 song. One of the few that can stand up to SP1 material.

I had been a fan for a while when Zeitgeist came around, but it was the first time I had a chance to see them live. In a strange way it felt like the band was finally "my" band more so than watching them on MTV as a young child. I don't really see the album in a nostalgic way yet. It just freakin' rocks my socks off. I wish they would have came back with a double album and took it over the top with a sixteen minute Gossamer. The material is very strong, but there is tons of truth in the fact that the production/mixing is rough.

Were you listening to it and making all of these observations during your gorilla live shows?

Studio version of Doomsday totally slams and I don’t see it could be any heavier.

Oh absolutely! I was jammin' it loudly in my car while we set up many legit shows as well. Surprisingly, the consensus among non-fans was that it rocked hard and sounded like Alice in Chains. As a long time AIC's fan, I don't really agree with that, though.

Gotta say the live experience with those songs and Gossamer were stellar, so to speak.

Looking solely at the studio version:

-Tarantula was a good single that excels in spite of the production.
-Neverlost may be the best song Billy's released post SP-1
-Starz and (Come On) Let's Go aren't particularly memorable, but as the OP said, show the fun that can result when you just have Billy and Jimmy rock the fuck out.
-United States and Doomsday Clock could be amazing if Billy didn't sound like he just woke up from a nap.

Tarantula is a banger and that little breakdown is the only time Corg’s ever had that SP1 dreaminess post 2000. He also managed to get his vocals right on it. But that 15 seconds is the best thing to come out of SP2, period. Even nails the breathy vocals

Doomsday Clock could’ve been great if he would’ve screamed instead of pussing out in the bridge. Same goes for United States

Album blows
