Blandkind has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
Is there Anybody else on these boards into the smashing pumpkins? They are one of my favourite bands.

I hardly ever answer this question anymore because I'm tired of saying "yeah some of their older stuff", but yeah I liked Gish and the Mission to Mars EP, and a handful of songs from Siamese Dream, oh and Pisces Iscariot had cool stuff on it, but after siamese dream they went downhill never to get back up.

i liked gish, siamase dream, pisces iscariot, mellon collie, but they didnt produce any good album after, but some songs are okay even from machina and adore, i also liked 3 zwan songs, but i just cant hear billy corgan solo album... they are allegedly working on the new album and i hope that the next album they make will be good, but i think think so far that billy has lost his gift for songwriting

i love the pumpkins...

You guys got to listen to Adore, its seriously one of my favorite albums of all time. Give it atleast a serious listen cause you are missing out on some great electronic sounds. Blank Page is my favorite song by them.

Siamese Dream is great too, but I never heard the Mission to Mars EP...

And also check out the Machina Acoustic demos.

You guys have got to stop reading all the reviews and listen to FutureEmbrace. Its a beautiful album. Reminds me of Bjork or something. It has this like unique feel to it I just cant get out of my head, I wish he would stay solo and just make these kind of records...

I like them but i don't listen to them as much as i used to. Billy Corgan has great voice and writes pretty good lyrics.
And the earlier stuff is much better than the latter.

Yeah, the last four songs are totally crappy.

i like them all i think adore and machina are crappy... machina has such a fucking annoying guitar distortion that i just cant listen to most of the album... but adore is even worse, for other reasons

I used to looooove the Pumpkins, but lost interest after Billy shaved his head/Mellon Collie. I listen to them probably a few times a year now.

Huge fan of them, I think they're my favourite band, SY being the second. But that position gets swapped out by the two.


I love every album, I can see why some people don't like Machine or Adore, but I think I love those albums more than their early stuff.

Oh man this topic like usual is gonna spawn a bunch of pompous indie snobs who are gonna go on about how much Smashing Pumpkins suck and how awesome Pavement is, even though they probably liked the pumpkins at one point

I like Gish, Siamese Dream, Pisces Iscariot, Mellon Collie and Adore (even if I don't listen to the band now as much as I used to).

Regarding Adore I don't understand why it's so hated here because I think it's their best in terms of songwriting.

other than pavemnt's range life, i see no connection. And billy saying pave were indie for the sake of being indie. Personally i think both rule in their own ways. I got the moon demo off that site and dig it totally.
