    this song reminds me of Machina. Maybe could have been on that underrated album.

    To me this is their best album since Billy brought back the SP name.

    Fallen lovers and useless friends
    Must you glare?
    A life uncovers our unions pulled by threadbare
    Pleasure taps it's vein
    I've been hungry and I've been full
    And I've been sated some more
    I used to know what for
    I used to know
    All hours look the same
    I used to know
    What a wish was for
    Magic plumes my soul
    Pyramids for sale
    Full moons on the rail
    Pipers play for dawn
    Hypnotized, unwind these lines around my head
    What's left for me to leave for you unsaid?
    You can't fill with dread
    I've been hungry and I've been full
    Molten at the spoke
    I used to know what for
    I used to know what for
    A pluck on spider strings
    Gutter from the stars
    Children from the stars
    Children cry out proud
    As embers blast my heart
    Broken where I'd stop
    I used to know
    What a wish was for
    I used to know
    What a wish was for
    Stolen like a lark
    Flicks on tender wrists
    Abuse the modern mind
    Crush on what you'll find

    Great Album

  • A UserName

    Some decent melodies on this record but overall the writing and production lack the dynamics of gish/sd and seem comparatively uninspired. Their original lineup had a dynamic that was greater than what Billy alone (or with anyone else) can achieve. James and D'arcys' playing style and shortcomings contributed heavily to giving the songs a frenetic character that was elevating. Their live shows from 91-95 are more interesting than the entirety of their recorded material.

      I thought this was a pretty great album. A great change of pace from their earlier stuff imo. Very proggy and atmospheric. The album always makes me think of fall for some reason.

    • A UserName
      A UserName 4 years ago

      @Michael Mitchell Your mildly clever quip does bring up a valid point. This is a new album, and should be judged as such. Unfortunately, due to the obvious employment of 90s-era SP guitar cliches, Billy has made the comparison to earlier work for us. The Future Embrace is actually a much larger divergence/progression, and vastly more interesting album, but it did not do well commercially - so Billy rehashed SP. This track in particular sounds like a melange of Loveless-era MBV and early SP, as does the whole album, minus the inspiration/writing quality and nuance of the aforementioned.

    I hope for your sake you are kidding. I remember seeing this live on Fuse when Billy was there promoting TheFutureEmbrace. It was a joke, Billy has no children, I'll say it again for people who believe him when he's kidding around, BILLY CORGAN HAS NO KNOWN CHILDREN. He's always making a joke about "Jason Corgan" as well, he's childless as of right now, sadly.

  • Adam Joco
    Adam Joco 6 years ago

    i agree with you there my favourite sp song is doomsday clock just because im more of a heavy pumpkins fan but im enjoying songs like this and the chimera because it just feels like corgans trying to grow up creatively and make songs as beautiful as tonigh tonight again.

  • Jon
    Jon 6 years ago

    Reminds me of something that would come out around the Machina era, but that's just me. I really like this song.

  • gomonkeyforcego
    gomonkeyforcego 6 years ago

    Pumpkins fans are so embarrasing to hear argue over this shit. Listen to the music and enjoy it. This would be the lowest budget album since Gish for all of you screaming 'sellout' or 'millionaires', and while the original members will always be missed, go listen to Mike and Nicole singing live, then listen to James or D'arcy. Actually, do yourself a favour and listen to Beautiful live here on TheXvid, and you get to hear them singing simple nah nah's together, totally destroying the song.

  • promethus50000
    promethus50000 6 years ago

    i can't believe people actually wish that billy lived in the past creatively. it's a good thing that every smashing pumpkins album sounds different, that means he's not trying to copy the sound of his most successful albums just to make money. i do like this album, but the first time i listened to the full album it didn't blow me away. a day later i kept thinking to myself to listen to it again, i did , and i slowly started to like more of the songs except maybe 2, or 3 of them.

  • r.d. laing
    r.d. laing 6 years ago

    yeah i not dissing him...of course he did some good work after '95..not much tho,stand inside,everlasting glow...look,the guys a legend,theres no disputing that but am i the only one that can see that the better tracks on this album r just reprisals of some of his older stuff ?

  • r.d. laing

  • r.d. laing

    billy became a millionaire upon the release of MCATIS(1995)..the edge came off after that,imo up to that release they were driven and experimental and had the ability to connect across a range of age groups and music genres from alt/pop '1979' grunge 'bullet with butterfly wings' poetic balladry 'stand inside your love'.. to pure alternatv bliss 'today'..alls im saying is he puts out music like a millionaire would....its safe...its not bad so u need to chill out...

  • Corbin Sturgeon
    Corbin Sturgeon 6 years ago

    oh really? you know that billy is missing passion? you know his thoughts? fuck that, fuck you. you don't know what the hell he thinks. if you watched any interviews from him recently he LOVES the album. he likes the fresh start he says.

  • r.d. laing
    r.d. laing 6 years ago

    i agree with the the machina comparison,but theres something missing and its called passion from billy...hes so flat and uninspired,the drumming is first rate,the bass is fine but billy just seems to be going thru the motions on this whole album with his vocals

  • GracefulNanami
    GracefulNanami 6 years ago

    Best song on Oceania by miles. Best song Billy's shoved out of his head in years, actually.

    Nathan Rockliff 7 years ago

    Can we not agree that the majority of Billy's music is poetry? I will admit, I enjoy the lyrics and music on the Machinas, with that cool electronic twist. Personally, his singing isn't the best on it. But let's be serious, nothing is worse the Zeitgeist! Had potential, just wasn't executed the right and rushed WAY too much!

  • Ryan Porter
    Ryan Porter 7 years ago

    machinas lyrics are pure poetry and cannot be beaten, the music style is so varied and strange but yet amazing, simply the best. Each to their own and all that :P

  • Nathan Rockliff
    Nathan Rockliff 7 years ago

    Ehh, there are some good songs on the them, but everything before them (excluding adore) outdoes the machinas in my opinion :P

    I usually don't like to compare a new song to an old song, but this really reminds me of Raindrops And Sunshowers. At the beginning I even said "Rain falls on everyone, the same old rain. I'm just trying to stay next to you, between the rain and the sun!"

  • Kremlocke

    Easily the best alt rock album in the past 5 years.

    • Frank Anderson
      Frank Anderson Year ago +3

      well, its 2018 now and its still the best alt rock album this century. no one else can do what billy can do. he set out with Oceania to make an "album". It will most likely be the last time he does that. This album will one day be recognized as yet another masterpiece by the greatest genius in the last days of rock.

  • Daniel Callahan

    Hard to say, but i think this is my favorite off the album. Its the only song with Machina influence, which makes sense because Machina is my favorite album of all time
