  • i love the pumpkins...one of my top 5 favorite bands.

    in fact i've been listening to machina and zeitgeist a lot lately and had a song from machina in my head when i came across this thread and still do...

    i respectfully disagree with the people who suggest they went downhill after mellon collie...granted, adore is a bit...i don't know, i can't put my finger on it...but...

    machina is a solid rock album and zeitgeist is truly phenomenal...i don't see how you couldn't dig it if you were a pumpkins fan or even just a fan of rock music in general... and i think they hold up well against the earlier stuff. maybe not as good as gish or siamese, but good nonetheless and worthwhile listening. one of a few bands i've yet to see live and would like to.

    One of the reasons why i think they are an incredible band is becuase of Billy never really being happy the way he writes a song. He writes a a song, but there are millions of ways to play it, which is just ace as for anyone who has listened to shows from 93-00 you know there are so many different versions of songs. Any Billy solo shows are just so intense, like muzzle acoustic is incredible!

    Adore is one of my favorites albums of all time, I hope I see the pumpkins before they part ways again.

  • Finally checked out If All Goes Wrong, it was amazing. And I didn't relize that Billy wrote so many songs since they got back together

    Just bought Zeitgeist today, and it's not bad. I'm finally able to appreciate the Pumpkins after falling in love with Mellon Collie.
    Thanks EPOTTSIII!

    Found it on the main page of the SP site - though you do have to give your name and email address to download the song, and it seems to be a copy protected download. (I can't get it to import into iTunes)
    Thanks EPOTTSIII!

    Am I the only one who enjoys Zeitgeist? It's not as bad as people make it out to be - it's a good rock record, with only one or two true misses.
    Thanks EPOTTSIII!

    you can, its just you are probably using a shit media player

    get VLC media player, or get winamp and search google for FLAC plug in. Or just search google for FLAC players.

    You're not the only one.

    I love it too, think it's one of their best.
  • sorry to resurrect a really old thread, but do any of you know that on iTunes I bought 154 SP songs for $11.99? Demos, lives, rarities, it was fantastic. I'm in the Canadian iTunes store if that makes any difference, but it was one helluva deal. And I previously had all the box sets and whatnot, and still many songs I had not had.

    Check it out to see if it's still there at that price.

    I also love it. I think if it had been released in their heyday, people would have paid attention to it.

    Apart from a few songs, since 2000 Billy's musical output has been pretty mediocre. Here's hoping the upcoming Teargarden by Kaleidyscope album-thingy is good.

    They are definately still up there in my top 5 bands along with Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana & The Doors. These five bands were the sound track to my angst ridden youth!!
    I named my daughter Lily... it's one of my favourite SP songs, I used to play it to her as a lullaby when she was a baby.
