Any Smashing Pumpkins fans here?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 

 

I found SP just after their release of Siamese Dream in 1993.  From that day on I was hooked.  They helped give purpose to my teenage angst, as well as being a source of musical inspiration throughout my life.  As an adult I still love them every bit as much, but through different glasses.  

 

For anyone who posts please answer the following question: "What is your favorite SP song?"

 

For me it's: "Porcelina Of The Vast Oceans"

"Drown".

 

On the Singles Soundtrack.

 

Killer.

That's in my top 5 for sure.  Great song!

The entire Siamese Dream album kicks ass.  My favorite Smashing Pumpkins song though is 1979.

I'm a big fan no doubt. Favorite pumpkins song is "Muzzle".

Listening to Pisces Iscariot right now.  Really nice and mello sounding overall.

Favorite is a tough choice, but probably 'Zero' for me. 

 

Just bought the Siamese Dream remaster. Listening now.

MT, please tell me... how is the remaster?  I own every album of theirs, but I haven't pulled the trigger on the Siamese Dream and Gish remasters yet.

 

I can't wait for the Mellon Collie remaster (speculation)!

Oh no, they're definitely going to do it. Because I want them to. I'm excited for Mellon Collie.

 

Anyway. They sound great to me. I lost my original master of Siamese Dream long ago and almost rebought it today to compare...

There were so many B-sides from Mellon Collie that were finally released in the Aeroplane box set that I wonder what's left for additional material in a remaster box set.  (fingers crossed that it's amazing)

Did anyone like the Zeitgeist album?  Rather sad that all I have is Siamese Dream and Zeitgeist and a handful of singles.  I thought Billy's vocals in Zeitgeist were rather flat and unenthusiastic.  What album would you recommend next for someone who loves Siamese Dream?

Not particularly, and I'm a big fan.  "Bleeding The Orchid" and "Neverlost" were the only two slightly redeeming songs on that album in my opinion.

I'm assuming that you don't have anything other than Siamese Dream and Zeitgeist.  If so, I would recommend Pisces IscariotMellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness, and MACHINA/The Machines of God.  Adore is another great album, but is kind of moody.  I love it, but it might not be your taste.

Cherub Rock is my favorite song, but they have so many other songs that are equally amazing.  Through the Eyes of Ruby, Here is no why, Soma are all incredible too.  

 

Smashing Pumpkins and NIN are my all time favorite groups.cool.gif

post #15 of 55

1979 and Thru the Eyes of a Ruby are my favourite songs and from my favourite SP album Mellon Collie!

 

Pity they released Zeitgeist, thought it was poor, especially considering their first albums. Maybe 1 or 2 decent songs but not much heart.
