"the sequel to 1995ís Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and 2000ís Machina/Machine of God"
In other words, this is a trilogy? Or maybe a "quadrilogy" since there's technically 2 "Machina" albums? Didn't realize that "Machina" was supposed to be thematically connected to "Mellon Collie" in the first place- though maybe that's something Corgan came up with after the fact?
Anyway I never bothered with either of the "Machina" albums (heard a few decent stray tracks but nothing that made me wanna dig deeper) and certainly won't be bothering with this. The new song isn't quite as embarrassing as I would have assumed but those handclaps sure aren't doing it any favors.
