I’ve never really been a fan of them or tool too much. Listened to the panned track from that other thread out of curiosity and it was really cringe-worthy and clumsy but I suppose in comparison to this new pumpkins track at least felt like it was trying to say something.
This is maybe the laziest music I’ve ever heard a successful artist make. There’s not even any joy in it’s trashiness it’s just so plodding and empty, the lyrics don’t mean anything or sound interesting, he’s obviously out of tune in certain places which doesn’t work with the overly clinical and direct sounding production.
Man it’s just sad I shouldn’t really slag it off because maybe he really cared about it and was trying to express something honestly but it sounds the total opposite of that to me.
