  1. Smashing Pumpkins

    At this point, I wouldn't hold any breath for any kind of reunion. With the exception of TheFutureEmbrace (which I really enjoy), everything he's put out since Zeitgeist is just tough to digest. Compare those albums to any b-side that came out with the re-releases and it's clear that Billy lost his mojo since. It just got pointless, empty and it would end up as just another greatest hits act to remind us of how old we got. Kinda like going to a Beach Boys concert. Give us the Machina re-release and we can all move forward.
  2. White 1 and 2 vinyl automatically comes to mind. O'Malley hinted they remastered them last year so those ones are somewhat to be expected. Altar Live with Boris would probably do a great release.
  3. Just watched some of the videos from the FYF Fest on YouTube. Amazing. Some of the songs are smartly recreated on stage while his vocals carry everything. Frank's music is on another level.
  4. It's a fragmented album, somewhat a leftovers / sketches compilation from Blond era. I hope the upgraded sound improves the experience 'cause I always had a hard time with the web rip quality. Still, Frank's vocal performance on these recordings are pretty impressive. Got the vinyl and the CD+DVD.
  5. Missed TRoWfTD 'cause they refused to ship to my country. Didn't miss this one, though.
  6. Smashing Pumpkins

    My favorite record post break-up is, believe, TheFutureEmbrace. It's the most representative effort of Billy following his instincs without worrying about the connections with Pumpkins, drummers, old members, social media... and I also love the way there's this synthpop connection all over it. Hopefully he'll eventually follow this path in the future, he's pretty good with blending his songwriting with 80's goth/synth influences.
  7. I'm in love with this album. It's exciting in its entirety. Best BSS record and, hey, I already loved the self-titled and <<Forgiveness>>.
  8. I'm chosing to get a standard black wax from a regular store at the time it comes out than waiting ages to get a red signed copy. My signed copy of Un/Un is kinda pointless and took longer to arrive than if I had purchased from a store. And more expensive, if I recall correctly. After a week listening to DAMN. on repeat, I can say it's not as incredible as both his previous full-lenghts. But it still stands out as a hell of a mainstream hip-hop record, which I assume was the direction he chose to follow instead of determining the next trend on alternative hip-hop. Seems like a fun, relaxed, back to basics approach to Kendrick.
  9. New album is dope. As someone pointed, he went into a different direction without losing his mojo. I'm glad the jazz/funk approach from TPaB didn't become a KL obligatory trademark, as one could have assumed. I've been listening to a lot of hip-hop and black music albums since TPaB, it's probably the genre which I most have listened to in the past two years. Listened to hundreds of different albums and artists and DAMN. is music and production-wise a standout album.
  10. Well, you know... The guy who brought me To Pimp A Butterfly has infinite credit. He can put out whatever he wants and I'll be happy and buy the thing blindly and think it's great even if it's not.
  11. From the listens I had so far, I found influences from The Cure and post-punk (a couple of songs reminded me of Bauhaus). It's a great album, I'll end up ordering along with the latest Wreck&Reference LP.
  12. Just got it. Arrived in pristine conditon, well packaged by Sandbag. No complaints at all. The magazine must weight 02 tons and it's huge. It's been months since I don't buy (and obviously receive) new music so this one made it for the absence pretty well. PS.: No BF sticker before anyone asks.
  13. It's a bit too dense and it almost loses itself sometimes, somewhat a Desert Sessions with major production. I think I Sat By The Ocean stands out as the best song (ironically, the most straight song along with My God Is The Sun) but I also enjoy the slow songs. Josh found the right mood with them.
  14. It took ages but I finally got my shipping confirmation.
