Looking up the Bit songs to listen to (they were boring - why are some people really big fans of them?), I was led to some gems via SPFC I didn't know were floating around out there: Chicago, Whisper, Come Back Home.

Good stuff.

On the whole it's a pretty good album. Helps if you're into Depeche Mode.

PPS is pretty schmaltzy though and because of McMurderson's toons I can't disassociate it from cocaine

Allow me to summarize the score thus far:

Pretty Pretty Star is an excellent nugget of post-golden years bill

The drum sound/pattern is one of the better on an album full of absolute garbage e-drums
“Soaring, longing shoegaze solo” - Funbags
And please let’s dwell on that shoegaze cuz it is fucken just thick n so woozy, like the drunken plea of desperate longing conveyed in the
Omg let’s talk about those naked/emotional yet satisfyingly bizarre lyrical
The feeling you feel when you feel like you’re gonna cry but the tears would be offerings to the dream of what could have been perfect
“Pretty Pretty Star is fine.” - LoveIsSuicide42

BLUH! BRO! NUH UH!

It’s “schmaltzy”
If one is creative or talented enough, one can create a truly hilarious misspelling of the title to have omg cuss words

Hmmmm looks like it’s still kicking your asses; you’re getting your asses beaten, in public, by a song written by the same author who wrote Blinking With Fists

Pretty Pretty Star is utter fucking gash and this entire album is shite.

I won’t stand for this revisionism. It’s the worst post-SP Bill release.

Woody is the new fuzzy. needs to repeat his negative opinion on every page of a thread, when he could just ignore the thread.

What's the point of being a nerd if you can't rage about the stuff you were once passionate about?

all things change - 1.5/5
mina loy - 2.5/5
camera eye - 4/5
to love somebody - 2/5
A100 - 2.75/5
DIA - 3/5 kinda falls apart at the end. not in a good way.
Now (And Then) - zzzzzzzzzzz.... oh... uh... 2/5
I'm Ready - 1.5/5
walking shade - 2.25/5 i want to like this more for some reason but it just never gets there
sorrows (in blue) - 2/5 same as above
pretty, pretty star - 3/5
strayz - 2.75/5

there's nothing absolutely offensive like on most of his post-sp/sp2.0 stuff, at least

Strays is 5/5. Beautiful sparse song. One of his most honest sets of lyrics too.
