they're gonna roll out a huge chunk of this record before it's release and this will be the only time we hear it.

same complaint i had about wrath.. too much singing. just vocals vocal vocals, barely any instrumental breaks. every moment of this song is filled with singing.

and then it ends.

OKAY YAY

birch grove is the best thing i've heard so far. exactly what i'd expect from musicians i like to do to take advantage of synths+samples but still sound like them. lovely wall of sound, great jimmy groove

I almost prefer the schiesse Teargarden because he was going for something.

Never figured Smashing Pumpkins for elevator music.

Ok so 5 songs in and this isn't Smashing Pumpkins, it's Billy solo with two chicks harmonizing on every song. Like dude Drab Majesty isn't even that good to base your whole album sound around.

my theory is first 10 songs are synth goth, second 10 songs metal.

10 songs of this style is enough.

There's more band dynamics on the worst Teargarden colonoscopy than this tripe.

The "band" is back together, and it sounds like Billy's solo stabs from 2007.

No Billy, go back to MySpace so I can pretend you're a 22 year old furry inspired by the Pumpkins.

This the worst dreck of his career, I'm glad I can even try to pretend to like it.

My wife (very nice!) is surprised I even try at this point.

Might as well go buy a NY Jets jersey

First it was TCoL and CYR are the synthy lead offs, then it was the first four songs are synthy but the other 16 will be different. Now it’s half and half.

Give it up

These songs so far reflect their most atmospheric-conceptual album since Machina.

Did the record company who is gonna put out the Machina reissue tell him, no thanks, we don't want the cartoons attached to this?
This is his retort? Synth album recorded in quarantine. With cartoon episodes.

You can F off. I don't participate in SP Facebook or Sad Machines for a reason, and that's because I can't stand all of the insincere positivity that's spewed out in those places. Its been obvious since 96' we weren't going back fuzz guitars and solos, and as much I'd love them to return to that it's just not happening. The truth is probably that behind all of Billy's nonsense and arrogance about his music changing is that he probably just got sick of playing classic SP style after recording a million songs and still to this day having to play them over and over on tour. If he wants to use synths then that's fine. Its never going to be SD, Pisces, or MCIS but that doesn't mean its totally crap either
