Default ADORE VS. CYR

Think about it:

1. Both are electro-goth masterpieces.
2. Both are better than Machina(s).
3. Both are works of art produced by WPC.

Incredible parallels abound, prompting this most epic of poles!!

excellent point. adore is a bloated pretencious album that falls flat on it's face, whereas, cyr is packed full of romping, stomping, grooving tunes that show WPC at the top of his game, a late zenith, if you will.

Listen to Cyr. There's no denying this is a bit.

Not completely. Obviously I am exaggerating to provoke some feisty discussion on this otherwise moribund board. But I also actually kinda enjoy Cyr, at least until it really starts to drag in the second half.

I mean does it blow compared to SP1? Of course! Is it the best thing WPC has done in over a decade? I dare say it is!


Deal with it.

hmm what would be really interesting and feisty would be a Cyr Vs. Zeitgeist thread. A pole to end all poles! Yes!

Adore is better than Cyr, but Cyr is better than Adore.

Leave Machina out of this pls.

Yeah. But you could also look at it as an improvement. I think that's what made me excited, that it might have been the start of something good? I dunno ... maybe not.

I pretty much stopped listening to Billcorg after American Gothic. Just a song here and there, and they all sucked. Then I listened to the Shiny album cos James. After I wanted to kill myself.

I can't believe that I actually listened to Cyr 5 or 6 times, and sorta enjoyed 60-70% of the album.
