Butterfly Suite
 
I'm getting a Mina Loy vibe a bit. Anyone else ? I sorta dig it.

Forgotten Child 09-20-2022 03:26 PM

No one else.
Just you.
You're special.
Congrats.
Hurray!

NovaFritz 09-20-2022 03:35 PM

Not surprising, coming from someone with a Walking Shade avatar.

Walking Shade: the first major BC disappointment.

More boring elevator music lol

Disco King 09-21-2022 02:26 PM

I only listened to the first little bit.

I mean, the sound they were going for is cool. Dark, psychy, Machina-like shit.

But the execution was awful. It's aimless. It sounded like the kind of noodling I do when I'm trying to come up with music by playing around in a scale, but haven't hit upon anything good yet.

Disco King 09-21-2022 02:28 PM

Whoops, I got this one confused with another new song they recently put out. The one that's Instrumental.

This one just sucks and has no redeeming qualities. Sorry.

douglas78 09-21-2022 03:15 PM

It does sound a little 'magoo'. Just when I think it's getting better, it gets worse.

brothahi4L 09-22-2022 04:47 AM

Butterfly is cringe..just the part with the guitars are good..but that is 30 seconds.....verse is so laughable....typical cyr tier

enthusaroo 09-22-2022 05:20 AM

The more times you listen to this song the worse it gets

eviltimeban 09-22-2022 07:05 AM

And considering this is the "Tonight Tonight" of the album... in terms of where it's placed.

houseofglass11 09-22-2022 02:51 PM

It sounds like a total retread of the song “Wrath” from CYR but not as good.

ourruseoffools 09-22-2022 03:03 PM

Absolutely no songwriting done on this song… sounds like he just went with whatever as he was recording and then sent it off to our darling guitar boys

I hope Jeff and James were in direct communication while working on these and when they received this one they just texted each other “???????”

themadcaplaughs 09-22-2022 05:13 PM

Instruments have kind of a cool Future Embrace vibe, but are drowned out by those vocals, which sound like Corgan doing some kind of cartoon character voice, and not in a "he's playing a character" way.

Funbags 09-22-2022 06:09 PM

Didn't anyone listen to the podcast?

This is where Shiny (the new Zero/Glass) and June are in spaceships (!?) near each other, and June sings this love song to him every morning. HOWEVER -half way through, Shiny presses the kill switch that sends his spaceship into the sun, and June can only watch as it begins it's March of Life.

This is 100% from the podcast. I wish I were joking.

Tommy Lipnick also confirmed the whole concept has been around since MCIS.

Ram27 09-22-2022 06:42 PM

who the fuck is tommy lipstick and why can he change MCIS canon

ilikeplanets 09-22-2022 06:45 PM

Anyone feeling kind enough to show me where to listen? That link isn't working anymore

cork_soaker 09-22-2022 06:55 PM

oops, mods please move to the Pic Post thread on the gen board

Funbags 09-22-2022 07:02 PM

Apparently he was an engineer on MCIS, Machina, ANDDDDD AUTM.

He said Billy mentioned the concept to him and Flood while recording MCIS, but he didn't think it would take so long to be completed.

LoveIsSuicide42 09-22-2022 07:26 PM

Hearing the story of the song presented in that kind of plot reminds me of Coheed and Cambria or some shit. I like Coheed quite a bit, but I don't give a fuck about the sci-fi story in the songs and just enjoy it anyway.

no, the wrestler guy was like "so were you looped into the whole 3 part story arc back in the 90s?"

the whole 3 part story arc didn't exist then, but tommy clearly didnt wanna cross the line so he was like "oh yea i heard bits and pieces of the story for sure!"

I'm sure Tommy Whoever said Billy sat him down with Flood one night and explained the general idea, and then Tommy said "I thought it would be finished in 5 years not 20".

eviltimeban 09-23-2022 04:19 AM

I'm sure Flood didn't give two shits either
