Just finally got around to listening to the new song.  My thoughts are that it's just ok, not great but not bad either.  The drums stand out to me, I love Jimmy Chamberlin's drumming, always have.  I guess they're performing on the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday, might be an interesting thing to watch, especially if D'arcy shows up in disguise and starts a fight on live tv.

I wish Billy would bury his vocals a little more in the mix. 

Pretty much all that can be said about it

New song sounded unnecessary. It takes more than just reuniting old members in a practice studio to jam around ideas. It still sounds like post-breakup SP music so if you dig Billy's efforts since then and recognize it as genuine Smashing Pumpkins, this single is for you. Don't think that J.Iha brought anything to the table or his presence helped to dig something that was buried in the past. 

 

From any expectations that I ever had left regarding SP, the one that I still have seems the most impossible at this point: getting the Machina reissue to finally lock the door.
