I have zero desire to re-evaluate or even listen again to Cyr. Like, none. I don't even want to hear that "swoon" song anymore.

That attitude is almost as bad as that edgy guy in the picture above with Noel Gallagher.

Man, is it just me or does Limp Bizkit seem cooler in 2021 now that everything is cucked out and lame? Would explain why they're so huge in Russia right now

I've been considering revisiting/reevaluating CYR...but I've been hesitant. I didn't love CYR but I didn't hate it either. I feel like I might hate it upon revisiting, and I don't have room for hate right now.

Cyr is solid compared to other SP 2 releases.

With some pruning, better mixing and more diverse production across the record it would be the best collection of material Bill has put out under the SP2 banner.

And with some better songs, better vocals, and different instruments. IOW a different album.

Cyr is cheesy and too long. Still there are some good moments on it. As a whole it is better than shiny, zeitgeist or oceania....but still a 3 star record

It's better than Monuments, and Shiny 1. It's not as good as Zeitgeist and definitely not as good as Oceania. Really, Oceania has been the only decent thing to bear the Pumpkins name since 2007.

Oceania fucking sucks, wtf are you smoking...

You come in here with those giant cajones, badmouthing Cyr's songwriting, and then go to bat for a bland SD-facsimile with no singles - Osheeeeeeiiiiiii-nia?

Cyr has hooks. There. Done. Cyr 1-0 Oceania.

I'm re-evaluating Cyr right now and it's even better than I remember.

i think i've listened to shiny vol 1 once

monuments was the last thing I listened to regularly and got some small level of enjoyment out of. really i should have given up on listening to the band when jimmy left after zeitgeist.

i've listened to the song cyr once and haven't listened to the album at all because i'm sure it sucks from start to end, no matter what anyone says

this is still my situation as well, with the addition of a few other singles that came out after the titular track

I'm right, you're wrong etc.

Oceania doesn't sound like SD. SD is the sound of the Smashing Pumpkins, ergo Oceania sounds like the Smashing Pumpkins.

For about maybe a month, i was really digging my 10 song cut version, enough to buy the vinyl, even

But then spinning the vinyl made me realize how uneven and bloated and (due to horrendous lil moments of big willie vocal on nearly every track) nauseating this album, ultimately, is, probably

And more than that, even if one listens to it and comes to like it (it grows on you), one still knows that it sucks.
People on this board have made the intolerable (Zeitgeist, Oceania, Zwan) tolerable by trying to get into it. But it still sucks and you know it.
