I'd be lying if I said that I disliked Zwan.

Lyric, Settle Down, Declarations of Faith, El Sol, Ride a Black Swan, Yeah!, Come With Me and JesusI are all songs that I enjoy.

I bought Zeitgeist, but not his solo album.

Zwan's pretty damn cool. I wish they didn't implode the way they did. "Now and Then" and "Mina Loy (M.O.H.)" are the only good songs off of Corgan's solo album, I think.

Jimmy Chamberlin's side album is a nice listen, too.

Rob Dickinson from Catherine Wheel sings two songs on Chamberlain's record...I have those both, nothing else from the album.

Zwan freaking had members of Slint and the dude who made the Superwolf album with Bonnie Prince Billy in it. SOLID. It does suck they didn't last more than an album.

Yeah, I liked Mina Loy.

Seriously though, Adore is fantastic. Oddly, it was the album that finally got me into them. It sucked because everyone else had moved on by then.

Adore was the album that got me into them, too, actually. I started with the track from the Batman & Robin soundtrack, then went to the nearest album, expecting it to have the same sound, but it didn't. I was disappointed at first, then it grew on me and I absolutely love it.

It runs a bit too long, but it's a soothing listen throughout.

What was the name of the song off the Forever soundtrack?

The End Is the Beginning Is the End.

I fucking love that the Watchmen trailer used the alternate version, The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning, too.

I still can't believe they never released the epic almost twenty minute Gossamer. The live versions were insane.

It was actually on the Batman & Robin soundtrack. A very common mistake as the Forever soundtrack was so popular.

Billy Corgan has a goofy head.

That is all I can contribute to this thread.

I sat next to Billy at a Cubs game once. He was quiet. Someone called him "Powder".

Do you really want to mess with a Lackawanna County volunteer sheriff's deputy?
