The tone is more mature then MTAE which I like, and if it was an album ender I probably wouldn't be too opposed to it. But as a lead single? No. And God damn it what is his infatuation with lovers. I would actually like to know.

Wow surprising hate on this. The vibrato is nice. I dig this song. Best thing I've heard him do in a long time. The strings are real good.

Actually like this song. It's good he got rick rubin to produce so Billy wouldn't put all these shitty stupid electronics and mellontron stuff

I'm picturing Billy retweeting Taylor Swift's snake videos today and going "Me too, guys" and it's good for a chuckle

Billy's a shitty piano player. MCIS instrumental is the best he'll ever be - pad a chord with the left hand, simple melody with the right.

Lyrics

Quote:
[Verse 1]
I went down the middle
The world survives
Look out son the air's alive
Call it ether elemental eye
Dark nights
One magic heart deceives
One little mind to ease off
One silver drum that beats, oh

This mountain was torn from us
This mountain was torn from us

[Chorus]
If I'm leaving you without return a snare
Can a boy float through time and space
You can call it home if you wish or if it's fair
But it's mine to share and share alike
Won't you mourn with me
Lover won't you mourn with me
Lovers won't you mourn with me

[Verse 2]
Fall across the middle
The world survives
Look outs on the air's alive
Call it ether elemental eye
Ooh, dark nights
One magic heart to fly
One little life to light up
One silver eye to eye, ooh


This mountain was born of us
This mountain was born of us

[Chorus]
If I'm leaving you without return
A snare
Can a boy float through time and space
You can call it home if you wish or if it's fair
But it's mine to share and share alike
Won't you mourn with me
Lover won't you mourn with me
Lovers won't you mourn with me
Lovers won't you mourn with me
Lovers won't you mourn with me
Lovers won't you mourn with me

[Outro]
Lovers won't you mourn with me
Lovers won't you mourn with me
Lovers won't you mourn with me

A little vibrato goes a long way.

A lot of vibrato threatens to kill an otherwise decent song.

But the production and vocals are pretty good tbh. I like the song.

I don't mean to be shitting on other's people's enjoyment, but can any of you honestly say this milquetoast garbage would catch your ear if it were playing in your local coffee shop and you had no idea who was singing/playing?

I'm easily Top 5 Dorkiest Taste in Music on this board and even I'm not falling for this.

I do like the chord progression, but the vibrato is really a bit much.

Agreed. This new cover is pretty terrible.

Wellll.... There's the lead single off the long awaited solo album folks.

I'm trying to look at it through unbiased eyes (I.E ignoring the brilliance of the old music)....

I mean, I guess it's not bad for what it is but it's something that I certainly wouldn't spend my time listening to. It definitely has that 70's cheese factor of a song like Kiss' "Beth" or the cheesier stuff from Electric Light Orchestra or something, but without the songwriting quality.

I guess the bottom line is that Billy Corgan is just a totally different songwriter now, and his upbeat writing style that he's had since around 2004 is something that doesn't really resonate with me much.

On 2nd listen, it seems like during the chorus that they're trying to ape that version of "Hurt" that Rick Rubin did with Johnny Cash.
