And then there was music

Apart from Billy Corgans garbled pretentious lyrics, I love Siamese Dream . The music is exquisite - virtuoso but always interesting guitars, sweet acid twinged melodies, the drums. I don't know why Dave Grohl gets so much attention when Jimmy Chamberlin is right here. Corgan resists whining and sings in a honeyed tone mostly lacking in their later records. Up there with the best muso rock records of all time. And there ain't many. 8.5/10from me.

Nah... I'm just messing with you. Your location is what tipped me off.

So I started typing my MCIS review a few days ago, and I am nearing completion. I procrastinated on writing this review for far too long. So, I should have it posted up soon.

To the original poster:

Dude, you have Soundgarden in your name. Your location implies U2. And you are reviewing Smashing Pumpkins. You must have some freaking awesome music taste!

As for the Pumpkins, Siamese Dream is by far my favourite album. Every song rocks like a motha!! especially the one called Quiet. Love it so much! Hummer, Soma and Mayonaise... fantastic songs! Gish is also pretty great but not quite as much as SD. Mellon Collie I agree is too long. I once made a condensed single disc version of it which gives SD a serious run for it's money! Could not get into Adore much though. Haven't heard anything else, though I do know the awesome Stand Inside Your Love. Great band who were alas not as good on Zeitgeist with 2 missing members. :/

Thank you!

Yeah, SD is great, all of SPs albums are great for the most part. If Billy would've been able to sort between the crap and the gold during the Machina sessions, Machina I probably would've been right up there with SD and would have been an epic way for the band to part. Well, at least we still got Machina II for free!

You couldn't get into Adore much? I suppose that's understandable, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it does contain many of the Pumpkins most mature and beautiful tracks. (To Sheila, Blank Page, For Martha etc)

As for Zeitgeist, I'd rather not discuss until I have to. (when I review it)

Are you knocking Teargarden? It is definitely not up to par with their classic material, but it is without a doubt better than Zeitgeist. So far, at least. We have 9 more EPs before this thing is done. I do respect that he is making the while thing freely available. The vinyl releases also have some really great artwork (yes, I bought them... I'm a Pumpkins whore).

I've thought about it. Part of me says no, because the songs are readily available for free on the SP website. Another part of me says yes because its Pumpkins music, so I should review it.

I have controlled myself from buying the EPs but I will definitely buy the box set when it comes out. I would also love that Gish box set that was mentioned once and then forgotten.
