Smashing Pumpkins

I love Starrcraft, that's easily my favorite from the album because it's a little odd and has some of that magic from their creative peak. With a few tweaks I could see it as a Mellon Collie b-side or something. Intellectually I can appreciate trying to take a left turn by not relying on guitars. I also think the backing vocals really work, even though it's not my thing. Billy mentioned recently how much he likes Phantogram, and that gave me a little context for what I think he was trying to go for. But there's just no reason to make a double album based on that, so of course it collapses under its own weight. Releasing it as a shorter solo album would have made much more sense.

Machina update:

 

Universal has it in production and slotted for release. No release date. Really depends on the production time line which as we all know is currently fucked. 
 

sounds like his post 2000 material is being negotiated to be reissued with his current label. 
 

Third archive release TBA soon.

Heck I would even be happy if TheFutureEmbrace was just finally on spotify.  Don't make me get out my CDs!

I really like TheFutureEmbrace as well. I’ve never gotten around to listening to Zwan for some reason, but I listened to that solo album so much when it came out.

I think Mary Star of the Sea is probably my second favourite Billy release after Machina. You definitely should give it a whirl, it's actually insanely good.
