Re: Hot Releases for 2007 new [re: dice]  

The only Smashing Pumpkins I own is the amazing Rhinocerous EP. They never bettered it and any more than 4 songs of theirs gets a bit grating anyway.

I know what you mean but the new one is surprisingly listenable, including repeated listens.

Smashing Pumpkins Sales new [re: dice]  

In reply to:

smashing pumpkins album will NOT be huge. that bird has flown


The decline of Pumpkins album sales was proportional to the decline of Corgan's artistry. Personally, I think albums like Siamese Dream or maybe Mellon Collie are deserved of their multi million sales - even if they were released today. Having said that, what this new album lacks for one thing is a kick arse lead single the likes of 'Bullet With Butterfly Wings', 'Today', '1979' or 'Disarm'. I certainly don't hear anything too crash hot about 'Tarantula'. On the return of the Pumpkins name, I reckon they'll secure a Top 10 album if not in the States than in the UK. How long it stays there depends on how good an album Corgan has produced.

I've never listened to any of these all the way through.



Trying to navigate TW reminds me of what it was like having dial-up service.

#2 in the US and #4 in the UK. Pretty impressive debut positions. This betters their last album - Machina - which debuted at #3 in the US and #7 in the UK. Machina, however, slid quickly out of the charts and was the worst selling of the five official album releases.

adore was a great album (height of corgan's artistry, in fact) and its also the one that started the precipitous decline in sales.

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Sales new [re: dice]  

It's a matter of opinion, but I don't think Adore was anywhere near as solid as the previous two. Combine that with the lack of great singles and the marked change in sound/style, and it's no wonder it suffered comparatively in sales.

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Sales new [re: Adam]  

clearly it was a stylistic change and the singles didn't grab people. and it's certainly not surprising the album didn't move mountains commercially. i'm just saying it wasn't artistic quality that started the downslide in sales

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Sales new [re: dice]  

I guess Adore has merit in it's layered keyboards and departure from their previous sound. From a songwriting point of view though I think Corgan was starting to lose grip - or at least his records started to become less full of hits and hooks and infectious melody. This became more evident Machina and then culminated on the disastrous selling The Future Embrace.

War Stories new [re: Adam]  

I'm just sitting through my first listening of UNKLE's War Stories. So far... amazing. This band are something else. It took their Psyence Fiction album so long to grow on me, and I'm still discovering it after all this time. Never Never Land hooked me right from the start (my first purchase of theirs). This is just brilliant.
