Well i've come to the point where i see sp as a circus. Billy talking so much on his podcast living in his whole bubble. And i've learnt from the past that he is announcing stuff regularly, but it is often not happening.
It has come so far that i dont believe most things he is talking or annoucing.
All this false hope i had james comin back. It is more wpc solo than ever...
I see how atum 1 was received by listeners. Worst rating and besides 2-3 tracks i dont care.

I let go billy...spinning adore at the moment- and i feel billy right from opnening track to sheila.

I just dont feel anything from atum......it is what it is.....and that is ok.

On James playing- whammy solo in beguiled is obviously him. There are other guitar parts in act 1 that are played with only the weird flare that he has, and I pointed them out in some other thread.

Jimmyís into it, if youíve listened to any of his recent interviews. Heís on this kick of playing simple and to the song, having worked on his timing and so on. Heís making all the same statements as billy, making the music they want, etc etc.

No one on this board is ever accepting Jeff as a troo member. Or anyone outside of the core 4. Just the way we do things Ďround these parts.

Jimmy is selling SP the same way he was trying to sell his tech company shit, though. He's as disingenuous as Billy is these days.

Jimmy went through hell all just to become a tech bro. How disheartening. Well I’m just glad he’s healthy and happy at least.

i'd like to say Jeff's obviously a "troo" member of sp 2/3/whatever, but then again I thought Sergio Vega was an official member of Deftones & look what the fuck happened w/ that

This is generally the same for me; it helps to do my dumb little jokes and japes here and to see the same from other folks. I'd just add, and perhaps this is relevant to the other half of this response, that when I'm stressed as opposed to just depressed, I start getting aggressive here and that ain't helpin' nobody feel better, and I need to get better about recognizing I'm in that state before taking it out on folks.

Who contributed more musically, Jeff or D'Arcy?

Contributing to bad music isn’t really worth much in my book and D’Arcy was important to the band it has been discussed ad nauseam, including by Billy himself.

D'arcy at least played in the band when it was good. I have no idea what Jeff has ever done on these glorified Corgan solo albums aside from that lead part on "One and All" which was decent.

Jeff is SP through and through. He's been in SP longer than D'arcy, James and Jimmy COMBINED.

Jeff is not SP in the slightest. Hired gun. Will never be a real Pumpkin. Tenure much like airplane mode means nothing to me.

Jeff is a member of SP the same way Glenn Hughes was a member of Black Sabbath. I don’t give a shit how long he has been in the band, people will always think of Billy, James, Jimmy and D’Arcy as being the band. You all know this no need for contrarian takes.

I'm not the one that did the provoking in this last flame war with house of glass. if i get attacked i'll attack back. drudging up a weeks old flame war and calling me a goon ultimately makes me upset all of that truce talk was BS on his end.

jeff has been relegated to playing mostly rhythm parts to add heaviness to the bands sound, with an occasional solo rather than solo at every moment of the show. I am ok with that.. and I was a HUGE anti Jeff guy for the longest time.

I’m sure Jeff is a nice enough guy but I just can’t consider him part of SP personally.

i don't really either.. but he's there. but the band is also pretty aware, i think, of this fan view point.. he's most definitely not the focus of any part of the show these days.

Well regardless he gets to be part of a famous rock band so heís still having a pretty good life I imagine.

Jeffs flowing long hair and the fact he is now wearing a dress onstage? (haven’t actually seen any live vids this tour but caught a thumbnail where he seemed to be in a dress? and that’s enough for me sometimes, just a good thumbnail version confirming the bias of the reality i and we all are co-creating with the heavenly motherfather?) have gone a long way to endearing him into my cold dead heart

Jeff is super cute and also very stylish. He's like a meek sheepdog. Whilst James is an intergalactic alpaca.

Master Bates reminds me of a jolly bear, solid and sweet.

Haven't worked the others out yet. Give me time, please.

I'm always going to be at least morbidly curious about what the Pumpkins/Billy's Media Machine is up to. I'm too far invested at this point. If I listen to something and I think it sucks, then at least I get to laugh at it and crack lame jokes.

Throughout the history of the Pumpkins, Zwan, members solo stuffs, live shows, etc etc there's a shit load of material which is either classic, good, fine, or bad. I can live with that, I'll literally never get bored of the songs I like, because I'm not going to let the bad stuff spoil the good stuff.

If he's going to synth, butt chug, viIiIiIbrato and word salad his way until the cows come home, then fuck it. I'm in, but maybe one day he'll realise how sterile he's become and then make something I like. Maybe (probably) he won't. I don't mind a few of the ATUM songs so far. It's fine. It is what it is.

You've just gotta be healthy about it. Not everything is for you.
