The Smashing PumpkinsGreatest band from the middle 90-s

gish - bleh
siamese dream - kinda reminds me of bowie's ziggy stardust. not music-wise. more as in this-was-their-breakthrough-album-which-they-easily-surpassed-later-on-but-no-one-gave-a-damn wise.
mellon collie - great, has the most variety... but the last song on disc 1 showed why iha shouldnt have made a solo album...
adore - definitely more of an acquired taste. still cant seem to listen to the thing the whole way through. good though. "annie dog" is one of my favorite songs by them period.
machina - probably my favorite. hated it with my first listen. soon realized its the catchiest one and has the best feel to it.
machina 2 - im not sure whether i like it or not... some of their heaviest stuff that i first thought should have been part of machina, but now i rather like things the way they are.

No, believe me, there's always going to be some kid who says that. I love ATDI from In-Casino-Out and on. But before that, they still seemed like they were developing their sound and this period was for the greater part of the 90s, so i'd have a tough time calling them the best of the 90s.Im pretty sure theory owns and runs this site.
i beg to differ. ATDI owns this title.
I admire the Smashing Pumpkins but don't think they're the best of the 90s. I think could argue for Pavement, RAdiohead, and (in a show of favoritism) Pearl Jam, just as easily...

but in music history importance, i think they are one of the three most important bands... i mean, if we talk about it like "early 90's/middle 90's/late 90's"...
like, nirvana with Nevermind in 93 (is it 93?), Pumpkins with Melloncollie in 95, and ok computer 97 (or 98? ash...)
well..leaving that beside.... they are enormous... you listen to Pearl Jam or many other bands which sound kinda the same in their 5, 10, 15 years of history... one record from another is totally different...
gish from adore, adore to siamese dream, siamese dream to machina etcetcetc..... still you can hear any song from SP and u know its the smashing pumpkins... at least when billy corgan sings....
melloncollie! for christ sakes! you can listen to Tales of the Scorched Earth which you can barely undestand with such dist. noises...and suddenly you find Lily My One And Only, which is totally contrary.... its like, what da f..........?!?
My fav. record is Adore... it's an amazing work of production and composition..... i know a lot of people doesnt like the record...at all... but many many people loved Pumpkins loud-rock style.... and suddenly the change from that to something, more acoustic, kinda electro...kinda weird.... i loved it... if there's something i want to emulate un my life is Adore.....

I mean,he has such a talent for writing songs and beautiful inspired lyrics that he must be hated by a lot of jealous people.
The devotion and love comes from us,those who are thankful to him and the rest of The smashing pumpkins.
