Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist
Not supposed to be out for a few more days i THINK but its being played on spinner.aol.com
Currently working link: http://spinner.aol.com/artists/new-r...s?defaultTab=1
All full tracks (except the bonuses) are playable.
SMASHING PUMPKINS ARE BACK!
Well, The original singer/guitar/random instruments (Billy Corgan)
and original drummer, who's name escapes me.
Just those two :D
Smashing Pumpkins might not be my ABSOLUTE #1 FAVORITE band of all time... but i love their old music, and, for a come-back CD like this, i think its successful. I liked all the songs, some are obvious filler that dont have that memorable ring to it, but songs like "Thats the Way", "Bring the Light", and "Pomp and Circumstances" (ive been listening to them over and over) Have the original Smashing Pumpkins sound still prominent, with the newly turned-up guitar playing.
That original sound in come-back CD's (Thats what i call them, atleast) Is something rarely found... a band disappears for a few years and comes out, releases a CD, and you go "Oh crap... i hope they didnt ruin themselves." *****COUGH LINKIN PARK COUGH HACK******
No, i wasnt happy with LP's Minutes to midnight. They went from being a completely original and amazing mix between hip hop, techno, and rock.... Minutes to Midnight felt, TO ME, like just another mediocre rock album.
But thats just me.
Anyways back to Zeitgeist and the pumpkins:
I think its great. Theres three or four songs that im addicted to, but all the others are pretty good too.
Im so happy to hear from the pumpkins again.
Have a listen, lemme know what you think.
If you arent a fan already, this isnt the album to listen to really, you may like a few songs but youve gotta grow to love Corgan's piercing voice from their old jems in order to truly appreciate his performance.
And if youve got any Favorites, lemme know what they are and why!
Mine are "Thats the Way" (for the great chorus) "Bring the Light" (I cant help but sing along with LIGHT! BRING THE LIGHT!) And "Pomp and Circumstances" (Cause that whole song is epic.)
