I've never really heard any of them but my Dad loves them and has all their stuff, so I guess it's there for me to try out...

Any recommendations?

I used to love them, I don't love love them as much now but I still think Billy is a brilliant guitar player and songwriter (I really don't give a fuck if he's an asshole or not because that would then be a reason for leaving out lots of great music).

well thats just the thing, it's when some one can infuse asshole and ego into the music that it ruins alot of what he has done

the poll sucks, because life is only in black and white and there is no grey area?

Siamese Dream is a solid record, (regardless of who is playing the instruments)

Mellon Collie is over indulgent and pretentious to a Nth degree, Zero has some the worst lyrics in the history of music (God is empty just like me? I'm in love my sadness?) but still has the best song they ever wrote in 1979

then Billy goes all goth and says, fuck drummers, Adore is the future of music, and kills their career

No opinion, I like to listen to some songs once and a while but most of the songs they made were pretty horrible.

No, his lyrics are nice sometimes. His voice is plain awful.

So is Kim Gordon's...

...according to some folks

Stumbleline is a very pretty song with nice vocals.

When it comes to the SP I often just ignore the lyrics and enjoy the melodies.

I love his voice, but then again I tend to be attracted to unusual voices (John Lennon, Ozzy Osbourne, Kim Gordon, Thom Yorke etc)

Plus Corgan had some ingenius lyrics

"Mispent youth faking up a rampage" - Stumbline
"I sensed my loss before I even learned to talk" - To Forgive
"Time is never time at all, you can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth" - Tonight, Tonight
"Have you ever heard the words im singing in these songs? Its for the girl i've loved all along" - Muzzle
"The Street heats the urgency of now, as you see there's no one around" - 1979
"I know we're just like old friends, we just can't pretend that lovers make amends" - Perfect
"So beats the final coda of a vinyl storm....a dream of soft focus sunsets filters through the din, we are losing contact as she dials it in, as she counted the spiders as they crawled up inside her" - Glass and the Ghost Children

Exactly. I don't really have any standards when it comes to vocals, but if you say Corgan has a terrible voice, so does J Mascis, Kim Gordon, Stephen Malkmus, Wayne Coyne, Satomi Matzuaki (?), Issac Brock, etc...

Some of their songs are good, but Billy is just such a jerk. Ruined the music for me. Voted hate.
