It's taking longer to do the backing vocals than it did to record the drums.
I know JC is a one take wonder and it's very different process for doing vocals, but I did think the backing was quite overdone on the last record. Just doesn't need stuff in every song... Like Billy doesn't need to squeeze in lyrics into every inch of the thing....
Oh well

I'm hoping the artwork isn't black and white for once.

Wait that's not all I hope for about this album

Never considered this, but Billy really is one snake-worshipping session away from becoming the Alan Moore of alternative music, and if he wants to grow his beard out to make the comparison more overt, I'm 100% onboard

"I'm never writing another work" [goes on to write lots of new shit] — check

wouldn't Alan Moore fame be a step down?

Question

Hmm. It's a fair question. That recent HBO Watchmen miniseries was pretty huge, but I doubt the average viewer would know Moore's name as a result. On the other hand, essentially nothing Billy has done since MCIS has been "pretty huge," so...

I doubt this means anything, but without a real idea of how to measure fame, I googled each of their names (with quotes, though Google seems more and more shitty lately about actually returning exact results with this method). Moore has "about 3,780,000 results"; Billy has "about 1,260,000." I have no reason to believe that means Moore is roughly three times as famous, but it does seem like it hints at an imbalance.

I feel like I can categorically state it would be a big step up in reputation. Fame, though, I dunno.

I imagine Corgan could throw some money at Buzzfeed or Hello Giggle or whatever the fuck and get some viral articles going like "Hundreds of fans praised Billy Corgan's masterpiece and his response was perfect" (response is the ol' instablock)

Or the New York Times could do "These alt-rock fans organized a celebration of their favorite record. What happened next was chilling" (again, instablock)

He should definitely keep growing the beard. This is the image Boz needs now!

Is there a tracklist available for the new record? I am wondering if he will have 66 and 99 on it.

Unhappy

He did play a song called 69 at that Zuzu's Christmas show, and I don't think I've ever been so appalled and disgusted

I’ll never understand the coat over the shoulders look with 2-7 other layers underneath. So bulky and bizarre

That really has been his major fashion statement for the recent what now, 5 years?

Bulky and bizarre, yeah - but how hot must that be?! I mean, he's indoors. Sure, it's Chicago (?) in the winter. Cold as all get out. But you're indoors. Then you have a shirt, a hoodie a coat AND a scarf on? I just can't get around how horribly hot that must be.

But, yes - the album.

All of the posts about the backing vocals has me nervous that this is a CYR 2 but with guitars instead of synth.

I hope that the song plaxed on the video doesnt stand for the album sonically. A cheap flute, and synths.

The WORST is to be expected.

Jesus, those girly choirs are not necessary...

As i told you bill wore several tshirts, hoody etccc....in colnar when i met him...... He looked like a freak

And yes bro, it is all about clicks and views today.... I bet crogan bought clicks. Especially the younger generation define themselves
Through clicks.
I am too old for that shit.

Be honest, if crogan could release a hit song, he would gain recognition again. Obviuously he isnt able to do so. ( Fir the last 20 years).
