    Love this one. Slow, distorted, epic.

    Machina I, was a very strong album, but only had one classic style song, but very wonderfully crafted.

    So, after repeated skipping of this song, i have finally realised the majesty of this song. Took a while though and I love the Pumpkins....

    I also agree with Alice_Hunter. It's very Cure-esque. But this is beautiful. This song takes me to another place.

    I agree with the commenter that says this song sounds a bit like something the Cure would do.

    Every other version is better than the one on Machina I.

    The live version of this on If All Goes Wrong is absolutely amazing.

    If you don't like this one try the Arising! version on the FAEOMM tape (or just any live version from the 1999 tour), or the first version from the Acoustic Demos tape. I personally love all of them =)

    For what it this song just is far too long. It's good for the first three minutes or so but end just draaaaags and gets very annoying. Also "Version Electrique" is basically an entirely different song.

    this song is... wow. words almost can't describe it. the layers, the mechanical melody... this is utterly perfect. Maybe the saddest song in the band's catalogue. It's immensely powerful.
