The songcraft is back, but the romance is still missing.
7/10 would be my score.
I think that The Chimera and Pale Horse would get onto future 'best ofs'.
And also - Machina has 3 of their best songs on it!
I like this album. The Pumpkins, post Mellon Collie, lost me (and that album itself could've used some editing). This one gets close to old greatness. I find it at least as good as anything from the second half of the first run. But then again, i liked Zwan (hated the solo album almost as much as Zeitgeist)
this is record is relieving above all. have a feeling it will grow in reverence.
