First Weezer, and now this. What is old is new again and what was long lost has been found and dusted off. The new album by The Smashing Pumpkins might not be the return to form some are clamoring for, but it's short and very sweet. Billy Corgan often sounds here like he still has a head of hair, and it's great that the passion is back. It actually shows a bit or range to, giving you a nice little dance down their catalog. Now I've actually quite enjoyed the past few Pumpkins albums, including Zeitgeist, but they have lacked consistency. That isn't really the problem here. There actually isn't many problems in fact. It's just a straight up good rock record, and that genre is sorely missing this kind of stuff. So I'm very happy to say this is a success. I adore it. Get it? You get it.
