Default What if the Pumpkins replaced Billy with D'arcy as the lead singer?

I think it would be an improvement over the last 10 years. It's time to kick Billy out. Bring D'arcy back and let D'arcy do the vocals. Then let Jimmy, James, Jeff, and D'arcy write new songs. I think it's a win-win for everyone.. the fans, the band, etc.. and let Billy do his WPC project and Info Wars and his kids get a dad.

90's Billy voice was like 35% of the allure. That nasally, nasty angst ridden whine was a very signature thing. It is sorely missed over the last decade and a half.

D'arcy sounds good on the tracks she's on but can she do different types of songs? Daydream, Dreaming, etc all have pretty much the same type of singing, & if there's one thing you can't take away from 90s Bill it was his versatility

What if the Pumpkins replaced Jeff with someone who wasn't a stone-cold player?

Yeah, the new singing style isn't even alt-rock sounding at all. Take a song like Quasar or Solara, it's got all these heavy guitars, and it's trying to push this intense sound but then there's just these like generic Christian rock sounding vocals or whatever the hell you'd call them. It doesn't jive at all. It's a big reason why Zeitgeist fell flat too.

Definite deal breaker
