Someone on Reddit heard it, and the following song. Said this was mostly instrumental, picking up the theme of the very first track.

The next track is supposedly acoustic, and very different to what's come so far. They even posted a cover of them playing it.

Listening it right now: The Culling seems to be at the top of what we've heard so far.
So finally Act II is quite good and gives ATUM a quality direction.

Springtimes is also very nice.

Sorry Netphoria I know this is bad news.

You can hear them already on YouTube with a VPN. They're both nice and sorta notable/different for ATUM tracks but I dunno if they'd win over stuck in the past types.

Trying to stream my way through Act I. What a weird experience.
I am at least happy that he is slowing down a bit. Cyr is so dense it's hard to get into.

These two are actually standout tracks to me on Act II, a much better final track reveal than Act I had with Hooray and The Gold Mask haha. Love the reprise of sorts of the ATUM theme in the second half of The Culling

I am so pumped for Act III. I think it is going to true return to deform.

I like them both. I really like Springtimes, even tho the intro nearly made me switch it off before it improved

Listening to the full Act 2, quality of sound is much improved compared to the podcasts

Old news, but after trying my hardest to make it through part 2 it's just such absolute garbage. Atum summed up in one word would simply be "Unpleasant." Also, where the hell is the actual "Rock" in this soulless, brittle and sterile body of material mislabeled as a rock opera?

The intro of Springtime is literally lullaby style music for babies crawling on the floor.

Absolutely the most atrocious SP release of all time. He and anyone associated with it should be ashamed to have this subpar work released under the SP banner.

I listened to The Culling and Springtimes on Qobuz. More of the same. Act I & II are up together.

thanks for the tips

cannot believe how bad these sound. every week it's like what the fuck is he doing. it never gets easier knowing they went from stumbleine to this

i mean, they're certainly an improvement. there's real guitar - ethereal sorta james-y guitar, even. but that begs the question, why do only these songs have that? why were there 20 other songs that were plain synth and drum machine??

Billy just announced that due to the success of the podcast and ATUM.. that ATUM will actually be Part A of a 6 part rock opera album series. ATUM will be Part A and there will be 5 more parts coming over the next five years. The albums will all string together into one story and the ATUM story will continue!

Podcast was a bust. Nobody has sat thru that shit. This is the most tedious and excruciating album roll out possibly in history. Please sit thru me tormenting fans with my overbearing and arrogant opinions on everything for two hours week after week with a shit song in the middle of a shit sandwich. Lol

Yeah, the podcast has been awful. I feel like reception to this would be so much better if he just dropped all three albums at once back in November or like, whenever it was ready? Sitting with each of these songs one at a time for a week apiece has been really lame, and I don't even think it would be a good structure if every single one is a banger. Instead of feeling as galvanized as possible about Atum all at once, it's instead stretched over this giant blob of time and it just feels so belabored. Not even Mellon Collie would feel compelling if it were delivered this way.

And on top of the basic structure of releasing music this way, the podcast itself is just not good I don't get the feeling that I would like hanging out with like, any of these people if I were in the room with them. To me, that's what makes a podcast worthwhile-- if it seems like they're creating a space I'd like to hang out within. And that certainly isn't the case here, as Billy is pissy as fuck about every little thing. The hosts are annoying and come across like dumbasses, but probably aren't that bad in actuality; they just don't have enough interesting material to work with and have to play sycophant to Billy. These guys must be thinking "what the fuck?!" about some of these tracks but they have to pretend it's interesting and compelling and it's just weird to sit and listen to. And then Billy is always correcting them over little things. Awful.

Jesus Christ you guys. springtimes (minus the first bit) is the best thing Iíve heard from him since zwan.

Itís not bad. There are better songs on this than on Cyr. This beats monuments as far as Iím concerned.

Yep I just ripped him up above but holy shit, this is honestly super good. There is a subtle depth to a lot of these tracks that is lost on the podcast. It's the best thing BC has been involved with since 2000.
