Why does Billy even try to write rock songs like this anymore? His heart is so obviously not in it at all.

At least with a song like Archer he sounds like he cares to some degree.

Welp, I'm in the interesting position of continuing to post here when I refuse to listen to Ogilala and have, after one listen, no intention of ever listening to Solara again

My general thoughts:

Really? Is no one else hearing Billy's voice peter out when he says "trying"? It sounds like he's run out of breath.

butt chugging

spot on though

would be interesting if this leak was an unfinished mix or something. Perhaps tomorrow the official version will be a different mix with a guitar solo or something. It wouldn't make the song a masterpiece or anything, but it would be much better.

Tarantula was completely forgettable and in the lowest tier of Pumpkins songs, with Billy making his racecar noises.

Doomsday and Thats the Way were tons better.

this really does suck. Zeitgeist part 2.

Jimmy's drumming is so uninspired. The melody is OK - good one, Billy. Where's Iha?

i get that this is a bad rip but the mixing sucks, too. same story as Zeitgeist - jacked up vocals and drums.

I havent expected a song like that in my worst nightmares. After i heard the first riff with that horrible guitarsound i new it would be a fail. Voice is a catastrophe- singing too. Reminds me of starz. Why choose such a nonsaying song as a single. Tarantula is way better, i am so disappointed. Why does he choose such bad songs, melody is bad too, production is meeeeh-/ dont get it. Why repeat himself with zeitgeistish crap???

We already got cheese, Jimmy...



Billy wasn't doing Instagram for a week. Did he already get bad vibes for Solara...?

I heard it already 10 times. Doesn't get any sympathy by adaptation...

Pure and utter shit. But in retrospect what did we expect? A tour that is a shameless attempt to cash in and appeal to your mainstream rock fan being proceeded by a single with artistic qualities? Billy was probably told they needed a 'rocking' single and he delved into his castaways and found this, a straight up rocker that your average shithead can bob his head along too.

If they were not concerned with it being a new song, they should have just put all their time in recording a 16 minute version of Gossamer. That would have excited fans, been newsworthy and been....good.

how long did it take to record these eight new songs?

how long did it take to record SD/MCIS/Adore/Machina? perhaps the rush to get out new music is the real reason the inspiration is lacking.

Every song off Monuments (with the possible exception of Anti-Hero) is light years better than this steaming pile of shit. I just listened to Tiberius again, a masterpiece in comparison.

Would love to hear D'Arcys opinion though.
