After going to an awesome show from the legend that is Mr Corgan at the Forum(night 2), i wanted some of his new music on record, so i bought the dvd in a shop down in london,
I love the new direction that the music has taken and can't wait to get the album, but i think this release is really only for collection, it's not an ideal'single'.
The video is fabulous as well as the song, albeit neither are much like any other contempary releases, but surely this is what we love about Billy? definitely, billy is pushing forward and has created something new, whilst giving nod to the past and keeping a real classic corganesqe feel to his music.
The annoyance for me though was not being abe to buy a single before the album came out on CD format, obviously it only plays on a DVD player, but I wanted something I could listen to with a couple of B-sides in my room, and that's not what we get here. There's only one song on the disk,firstly the video, (which is wonderful), then the audio track, then a long video of just billy talking, whilst being excellently put together, dragged on a little,
I am a huge fan, but that doesn't mean I should automatically love everything I am given by the people in charge does it? Of course not! For me, as a music release, there wasn't enough on the disk to satisfy my curiosity for a whole week while i wait for the album.
