The Smashing Pumpkins are now streaming their upcoming album, Oceania, exclusively on iTunes. You can listen to the album in its entirety right now here:
This first song is terrible
exclusively on iTunes.
I think that if if Billy Corgan could have seen himself today 15 years ago.. He'd kick his own ass.
"hear the band take back the alt-rock throne once again"
This band hasn't mattered for a long time. Tell me Corgan, why should I care again?
Digging: Childish Gambino - Because The Internet
first song is better than i assumed it would be at the very least.
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
The song structures and dynamics are pretty cool
Everything else basically sucks, including the production and Corgan's voice
Not liking the production much, but the songs are pretty great so far. Definitely the best since Mellon Collie IMO
I was excited, but exclusively on Itunes? fuck this, man.
Edit : I thought about it and maybe it's because of the label who might've made a deal with Apple
Album is awesome, stop blindly hating.
nothing can touch Siamese Dream
it's not bad at all
Well, currently halfway through, and it's better than most stuff after Mellon collie. Owns zeitgeist in every way
I'm a fanboy so obviously I'm liking this, it's alot more aggressive than anything they've done in awhile
Digging: Daylight Dies - A Frail Becoming
Enjoying this quite a bit
Digging: Obliteration - Black Death Horizon
I will give it a shot
Digging: Barrow - Though I'm Alone
I think some are being way to harsh on this, I'm only like half in and it's actually quite good. Also, it sounds like Corgan has still got it vocally despite what others might think.
We'll see though, maybe I wont even be down after listening to it more then once.
iTunes fucking sucks
Some pretty decent tunes on here actually. A few of the mellower ones are quite bland but all in all this is alright
third track might be my favorite right now
This is fucking awesome, are people just retarded? Wait what am I saying? Of course they are. This rules so hard my balls hurt.
epitome of meh.
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
Confirmed for inferior plebeian to my patrician music tastes. This clearly rules. Must be to deep for
let go and accept the ride ended a long time ago.
Just accept the fact that Billy Corgan still has music to offer and you are an idiot for not even giving this a chance.
this fucking guy made the mistake of seeing a shell of a band live in
07 where corgan wanked the whole time and only played 4 old songs.
I'll give you that there live act has suffered quite a bit. But this fucking rules and when he plays this stuff live, he puts all his effort into it. With the old songs he just rushes to the end of them. Kinda sucks.
he was an ass to the audience and his encore was a kazoo solo lol.
...A kazoo solo?...Was...Was it good?
And how was he an ass?
it was surreally sad and he was berating the crowd during songs.
Might give it another listen but it really sounds pretty bland like most of their post Mellon Collie material.
I really hate you all. Adore, Machina 1 and this are all great. Especially Adore and Machina 1. Those are incredible albums that are heavily underrated. They deserve more respect dammit.
Will be listening
About halfway through, liking it so far.
It's even better on second lesson. My God, Billy has done it again. Any doubters just need to listen to the first 5 tracks. So fucking great.
the beginning of the celestials made me giddy
Make no mistake, Corgan is an asshole. As a life long fan I have no problem saying that. But everyone is right in saying that this is the bands best work since MCIS.
Ok. So I now only follow Corgan for nostalgia sake; they were 'the' band for me growing up. I fully expected to be disappointed by thus but this album is actually very good.
I'm going to wait till I get hold of a physical copy before I listen.
I know it's going to be great.
"I really hate you all. Adore, Machina 1 and this are all great. Especially Adore and Machina 1. Those are incredible albums that are heavily underrated. They deserve more respect dammit."
Yeah Adore is pretty awesome
Glad to see some positive reception. People have been way too hard on Billy since the reunion, and in a lot of ways he probably deserved it, but Oceania is a great record and it deserves a strong, positive response. I strongly advise seeing the band live next time they tour, yeah, the live band was severely lacking when I saw them a couple years back, but I saw the current line up last fall and it was one of the best shows I've ever been to. They played a killer set with classics like Geek USA and Starla, and the stuff from Oceania fit in perfectly.
change that gaddam band pic. it makes me insane every time i see it
oh you mean when they were good?
maybe it's time for you to move on...?
to the silversun pickups? been there.
or you could, y'know, listen to oceania
Senses Fail is not bad foxxxy
@lakes, I did. it's the best thing corgan and his backup band has
done since he came back but it's still pretty underwhelming imo.
I've been listening to this band since 1994 so how about you stop.
