Double vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition of this 1993 album from the Alt-Rock band led by Billy Corgan. While their album Gish had brought them to the attention of the Alternative crowd, Siamese Dream was the album that broke the quartet in a big way. Features the hits 'Cherub Rock', 'Today' and many more.

I give this album four rather than five stars as, while I love every single song on Melancholy, every single one, and find they are variegated enough while the entire album has a thematic harmony to it still, this album, for me, has two really outstanding songs (they really are outstanding), some of the others are not up to the same standard at all. They are fine but Today and Disarm are something else.
Back when I was at technical college I remember people making mix tapes from their CDs that they could listen to in their walkman while commuting and they'd always include those two songs of this album, often with the entire line up of Melancholy. I do like the other songs, I listen to this CD in its entirety on a loop a lot in the car while driving but the two I mentioned are just greater than the others. They are also two songs I think its worth owning the album for and you could find that there are some others you dont mind listening too at the same time.
If you like and know the style of the Smasthing Pumpkins from any other albums, EPs or singles you're not going to be disappointed (although you may own this already), if you are entirely new to the Smashing Pumpkins, it is not a bad place to start either (just be sure to check out Melancholy while you are at it). Recommended.
'Soma' is like an epic battle from beginning to end. 'Geek USA' is a refreshing thrash. 'Mayonnaise' is purest genius (there's a lot of it about here), 'Spaceboy' is an exceptional ballad, 'Silverf@#k' is another nice thrash, 'Sweet sweet' is just that and 'Luna' takes us off tothe realms of uncertainty concerning whether we're going to hear anything quite as good ever again.
It's pretty good.
