So to recap:

* The fucked up the podcast
* They had to restart the Tik Tok live
* The pre-order emails and VIZ texts went out before the 9/19 @ 9:00 launch date
* The YouTube premier was wrong

What am I missing?

This is seriously like the Parks & Rec of marketing teams.

Billy: “You know what this song needs? A clap track.”

Billy’s yes-men: “ oh great idea! Whatever you say!!”

It virtually sounds identical

Like, "choose this or that version of the riff" on the whiteboard

Not only that they go and make that 2 different songs, but also choose to lead with them AS SINGLES - I really do think this moment is in strong contention for "lamest SP moment ever"

Let's be honest, though, all of the big rock and metal bands are just living off stuff they did 20+ years ago. On the other hand, some of the others are at least capable of putting out good music still.

I'm just trying to imagine the reaction if they had played with Batio in the 90s. There is no way on earth D'Arcy would have tolerated that though

Beguiled

So swallow hard, the serpents
Of many tags in faces here in ___
____till the last
You crack your boots, you're pagans
'Cause like you I was hatched to taste stone cold
___17, Cilantro
Away from home

And our love's lessons since I was taught
Taught, so tough
And now I'm telling you

Return the faith
Return the faith
Smashing up the veils
Return the faith
And there's no escape
So return the faith
We're judging like we're___
So return the faith
You've gotta move

So as we trade by rainbows
Here I convey ___'
And the king has placed us in his chores
Eternal place can hold us
But in sin I'm simmer
And your dues ___
___ as if death
And our love's lessons I was taught,
Taught, so tough
And now I'm telling you

Return the faith
Return the faith
Smashing up the veils
Return the faith
And there's no escape
So return the faith
We're judging like we're ___
Return the faith
You've gotta move

Return the faith

He can't. He has lost everything that made him a great songwriter. Sometimes I think about how absolutely flawless Billy's legacy would be if he had died in 96 or 97. He'd be talked about like Cobain. Even if he had died in 2000 or 2001, his legacy would be terrific. Now he's just kind of a joke and way more forgotten than he should be.

I wasn't implying I wanted him dead (I can't stand Billy for many reasons but I don't wish death on people except in extreme cases i.e. Nazis), it's just something I think about because it's interesting to consider how perceptions can be changed.

yikes.

Is it bad? Maybe. Is it good? Nope. Does it sound like a lot of other "rock" stuff he's put out since 2007? Yup.

Video? Could care less. Would prefer if Billy just didn't try to be "weird/shocking" or whatever he thinks he's doing. The only thing I take from it is that Billy spends a lot more time thinking about image + reinventing the wheel rather than just focusing on the music. I honestly think he would feel the video was edgy + weird, but doesn't hide the fact that the song is flat as a pancake + totally stale.

Same with the album (ATUM: a A Rock Opera In Three Acts).

Give me a break. It's going to be 33 (!) songs of pure shite. Bombast, vacuous lyrics, dull music, boring arrangements, ridiculous overblown imagery etc.

Back around the end of the original band, you could just put on a shuffle of all SP songs + pretty much not have to skip or go through deleting anything you didn't care for. With each bloated release they just add more junk that you'd have to sift through to put together a listenable playlist (if anyone does this anymore!).

Just retire ffs.
