siamese dream came out of the mothballs for me a couple weeks ago...
still sounds tremendous. "quiet" is very underrated.

every now and then i re-listen to them after not listening to them for a long time, and i realize how great they were, they wrote a lot of shit songs, but the good ones were very good.

I have been listening to 'Slow Dawn' and 'Set the Ray to Jerry' a lot. 'Slow Dawn' has a lovely guitar sound to it. And as much as i love taking the piss out of Billy he can really really write good songs.

yes, Siamese Dream will always be amongst my favourite albums. That album is just so magical, Mellon Collie has some great moments and adore is just beautiful throughout. The problem is around Machina they lost all the emotive qualities that made them great. They stopped feeling real.

for me, it's probably between gish and half of mellon collie...gish is the one i've been listening to the most lately but the good songs in mellon collie are amazing and more timeless.

still, they were more like a singles band.

some of their greatest songs ever were b-sides.

Adore for me (that album is often undeservedly bashed here I think, maybe because it's not "noisy" enough).

Obscured is one of the best songs ever. I also love the Fleetwood Mac cover.

Melon Collie was one of the first albums I bought so it gets sympathy points except for the fact that it's mostly too melodramatic for me to listen to nowadays. Siamese Dream is pretty cool.

Current order:

Mellon Collie
Siamese Dream
Machina II
Gish
Pisces Iscariot
Machina I
Adore
Zeitgeist

I don't have the other b-sides comp, but I love every album I've got. Zeitgeist isn't even all that bad.

Siamese Dream was, back in the day. Then I sold all my pumpkins cd's for $70. Totally worth it.
