I take no pleasure in reporting this, but I think we can all agree that for Billy's music to improve, Chloe must leave him and receive full custody, preventing him from ever seeing his children again

If we all include this wish in our nightly prayers it can be a great year for everyone

this is all very conflicting for me considering Billy is the lord I pray to - however, Teargarden came before any of this airplane/Augustus businses didn't it? & he wrote Mellon Collie when he was married or what have you

i think we should by this point quit deflecting blame of bad Corgan crap on the surrounding people because there's clearly only one man, a tall bald man who can have a hand in any sort of artistic upscaling whatsoever and it's time to accept that

or, as has been said many times before, accept what Furry is now and move on to other bands who aren't currently pulling such fantastic shit-turns & destroying all their potentially good albums/releases (save for Machina reissue, which i'm decreeing right now will be a GRAND experience & even Daddy Bill couldn't fuck it up)

Thumbs up

I feel like Geek/Mayo/Hummer are better than Rocket by some indefinable metric, but it's my favorite by a country mile

The chorus sounds super grungy and I feel like he was trying to do a Cobain thing with the solo (even though it's unarguably more complex). They even have him tearing off the strings in the music video which I feel like is a rip-off of the Smells Like Teen Spirit video.

I dunno, it's by all accounts and purposes a good song. It's just simply one I've never been crazy about. To be clear, that's not to say that it doesn't hit the spot to rock out to from time to time.

F i love rocket. Such a strange, creative arrangement for a song. Like so many sp songs you could base an entire discography off this style of tune

Let’s talk about rocket some more. You got buzzing drone of the verse ‘peggio juxtapose with those grinding pre-choruses and choruses and post-choruses, the serpentine lead hooks biting, stinging, tangling round your brain

Add to that a top notch jimmy part sorta stuttering in the verse, just a bit to keep u from fading, then whompa pom! send u into the stratosphere for the exciting parts

Plus when bill go “AH SHALL B FREY”

Rocket
Mayo

.....and gosh

Probably have to go with Geek for #3

Feel especially bad that disarm didn’t make my top 3 considering this is a disarm appreciation
