I think this was the first song I heard from Machina. It made me wonder how Machina wasn't so well received, until I heard the whole album.

It's a really good one. For something apparently recorded in haste IMO it's got one of the best choruses from the album. With Every Light should have been the closer, sure, but this still kind of works as an epilogue track, if that makes sense. "That's it, band's done."

Maybe it'd have been more effective if it were hidden after a few minutes of silence.

Was debuted at Bridge School in '99 - remember hearing the recordings and being SO stoked for Machina. Having loved all of the songs from the Arising tour, then knowing that this one might sneak on there just ratcheted up my excitement for the album another notch or two.

Every once in a while I think about how Billy's original intention was to have the last sound you ever heard on a Pumpkins record be that super-distorted "MMMBLURGH SKIES MMBRING TEARMSMSMS" and I laugh a little

There was one country that probably did have that experience haha. Doesn't the Japanese edition with Speed Kills have a slightly altered tracklisting that has BSBT last?

I seriously doubt that D'arcy played anything on Machina or Machina II.
Flood did a Q&A some time ago where he discussed this. Billy and James split bass 50/50 on Machina I. D'arcy shows up on parts of Machina II (since a lot of those songs were from rehearsals or rough takes), but Billy re-did some of her parts himself.
