No doubt it does. The production positively kills it for me, though it isn't a particularly great record lyrically either.

If it had a complex production then it would be Machina.
But they're on completely different lyrical planes, they're not even similar. Zeitgeist is far more extroverted and socio-political.

I prefer this style. Billy writes heartfelt music. It isn't fucking My Bloodly Valentine.
And MBV isn't heartfelt? I feel more warmth and joy listening to a minute of Only Shallow than most of the Pumpkins' discography combined.

Quote:
The album is beautiful in its anger and rage.
Then they all are. The album isn't anything new for the band, it's just more abrasive musically.

Quote:
I'm starting to doubt your musical tastes.
Please don't. I'm honestly surprised to hear it defended on this scale, considering it received a ton of negative press, though not all of it was warranted.

This doesn't seem quite like the Oasis songs I remember from the radio.

I practice my hand-eye coordination, Mia. It comes in handy. I used to miss the keyboard by a mile before I started posting 1516561117 times a day.

I feel that way about much of his music. It hasn't really had much chance to grow on me.

Don't always trust the press. Sometimes I find you to be a bit too commercial. I find Zeitgeist to be a good album and my tastes shouldn't be called into question over it. I will defend it because I really like it.

Now time for Peter Gabriel's Book Of Love. I really only know his work with Genesis - which isn't very good.

We're on a U2 forum.

Remind me to send you Security sometime. You might appreciate the rhythms and beats. It is quite unique in that department.

This is true. If this were a Silver Apples forum, your point would be far more understandable.

That Peter Gabriel song was dull. I think it was meant to be positive but it sounded so drab.

Now for Bowie's Heroes. I must admit, there was a cover of this done in the late nineties, and although I forget who did it, I think I actually prefer it over the original.

Yeah, some of you are so coming to kill me now.

I know but you shouldn't trust everything the press says. It is about individual tastes. LemonMelon needs to remember that.
