I'm finding now that I have spotify(premium), I am being exposed to a lot more music and in turn have been buying records again for the first time in years. It's a really nice thing to support artists and I think that programs like spotify expose a lot more people to music very easily(and in turn give them incentive to purchase) that they'd otherwise steal without thinking twice.

Most balanced album since the pumpkins got back together.
Of course I promptly purchased it.

i was told that billy's vocals are really really bad, to much synth, and no melody.
I dont necessarily trust those people as only 1 of them is my friend and the others are either just acquaintances or friends of my friends. One of my friends said he liked it but only liked not loved. Then again this guy also listens to nickleback and likes screamo so i dont trust him either, the only people i trust musically never got into SP. Thats why i came here to see if the album was good or not.
and thank you for that, i do remember a lyric so can you confirm if it really is this song, I remember him saying "never let the summer XXXX never let your thoughts run free" in the rocking part

i probably wont be hard to please, ive liked all the SP stuff even zeitgeist, only reason i put off BUYING the album is cause 2 other bands released their albums at the same time, motion city soundtrack's go and make do and mend's everything you ever loved. i have some spare cash after buying them so ill buy oceania soon.
though just a question, how are the vocals, even though i liked zeitgeist only thats the way and stellar's vocals did i actually like, the rest were either tolerable of just bad

thats relieving, ive always liked machina 1's vocals the most, that in between of the high pitched smoothness and normal deeper vocals made that album for me, does he at least reach that high pitched smoothness on this that only stellar and thats the way reached, and i think none of Teargarden reached

Have to admit though, this and Deftones - Diamond Eyes have been the only music I have obtained legally for quite awhile. I always go to concerts etc and buy merch, and to be honest I like the fact that bands need to tour to make money, as selfish as it is, we get to see bands down here in New Zealand more frequently now that artists make more from touring than from CD sales. I saw the pumpkins in 1996 and they didnt come back here until 2008! Since then they have been back again in 2010 and are here on August the 4th for the Oceania tour. :cheers:/>
