    What's up with that weird vibrato thing with Billy's voice?

    Not sure how I feel about this new single yet...:sigh:. Never really liked anything RR touched either. Will try to keep an open mind though.

    I'd bet on Melissa before D'arcy. From what I've heard she hasn't picked up her bass in almost 20 years, and it would be difficult to go from that to a tour.

    May 2016:

    "I see that it's D'arcy Wretzky's birthday today: So a big and happy B-Day to her from here! I'm encouraged to hear that she is playing music once more, and writing songs," Corgan wrote of the band's former bassist. "As I've often said, no one had better musical discernment in our band than she."

    Billy is streaming daily live performances on his Facebook - William Patrick Corgan

    In addition to the new single, he also played some pre-Gish tracks - "I Fall" and "Vanilla".

    Being a long time Pumpkins fan, 'Aeronaut' eally impresses me a lot

    It does sound like 'Adore' era, but Billy's voice is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HERE.
    I think it never sounded like that on records before.

    In general, do not like Rick Rubin production at all. But in this case, it works. And how it works!

    This is another beautiful track

    It's clear that Rubin worked a lot on Billy's voice

    This is a beautiful album. I haven't truly liked anything since adore. I actually think his first solo album(future embrace) was the best thing he had done. I connected with it much more than machina1&2, teardrop,oceania,zeigest, and monument to elegy....

    This new album is also better to me than all those. If i have 1 complaint it is that it is a bit monotonous. I mean every song is an acoustic guitar or piano with not much else but strings. T he first album had drums(computer beats?) electric guitars.
    My initial thought is i might think future embrace has the edge on this. But i have to live with both for a while. I am a bit sad future embrace is not on vinyl.

    DR of 7? That's not going to be good for this kind of music. Bloody Rick Rubin...

    Does anyone have any word about how the vinyl version compares to the CD?

    I like the album, but from what I hear it seems like this record's been Rick Rubin-ed, albeit its "acoustic" nature. I simply cannot listen to it on headphones.
