I like Billy. Loved the 1st 2 "SP" discs. In fact I saw them open for the "Red Hots" on the Blood Sugar tour (before John F. quit.) Funny story, this was so long ago, I drank in the parking lot for the 1st band (3 band show) because it was some unknown band called "Pearl Jam". I didn't mind some of the later "SP" tunes. I even really liked a few. I respect Billy for pushing forward, moving on and always trying new things. But I have heard two "Zwan" tunes and I am not all that interested. I like that he's in a more upbeat mode. Still, something about that whine in his voice singing, for lack of a better word, "happy" songs is seems a little of-putting to me. And musically, the 2 selections I checked out are a little lackluster. Does he play guitar on the album? I mean solo wise. Still withholding final judgment. However, I am asof yet unimpressed. Not that it sounds bad. It's just not up to earlier standards. Or my standards anyway.
