You’d think having Jeff playing the extra little guitar bits would be good. But the James Corden performance of Today showed that it’s not. The whole band sounded restrained and wimpy. With three guitars Billy and James have to turn down to leave space in the mix for Jeff. I’d rather just hear their two guitars raging at full bore. Ymmv.

these are not words one would quickly attribute to the "Bates-era Band"

i could totally see them doing a cool Adore or (imagine this) Machina thing

but SD? that band is fucking dead I'd rather see a tribute act doing the album lol


Plus the whole "play the songs at a million miles an hour and tear your fucking face off" factor

What I really don’t understand is that the kids really like Siamese Dream nowadays. It’s the slacker aesthetic of the art, and the depressed-but-sounds-cheery vibe of the album. It would sell so fucking good. Gen Z would be there.
