This album is an awsome example of a great debut for a great band. The Pumpkins collide sonic musical fusion like no other in their time. This album blends together genres of grunge, power pop, metal, and shoegazer to create a superb collection of songs. The following are the track listings then i will reveiw each track.
1. I Am One
4. Bury Me
9. Window Paine
I Am One
This song is a great way to start the album. It has a hard rock feel to it, once it gets going, and is fast moving. I love the solos in this song and once you start getting into its high energy you wont want it to end.
Once you have been numed by the ferocity of I Am One, the song Siva starts. Equally as fast and hard as its predessesor, this song starts with a heavy distortion intro which carries on into the song. This song is also riddled with amazing flashes of guitar skills from James Iha wich make the song even better.
After two fast moving tracks the album takes a turn and this song starts slow and melodic, with a dream pop feel to it. If you want to hear more guitar solos you'll have to wait a while for this song to get going but if you like quiet intros lasting half the song this a good track :)
I can't say ive listened to this song too much but i give it a thumbs up anyway because it has a really cool bass line and is really energetic :)
This has to be one of my favourite tracks on the album. Its a soft song not a fast one but its still really cool and relaxed. Its acoustic but some wierd distortion in the background and lyrically, think this is one of the best tracks on the album.
I found that that this song is rather similar to Crush. Though this has more of a dismal fel to it. Still an alright song just probably the weakest on the album. :|
I have one thng to say about this song-AWSOME. Ok, ill say more. This song starts quietly and then gets rocking and dose so from start to finish. (with a few quiet bits here and there) I think this is the album highlight but youll have to hear for yourself. :>
This song is similar to I Am One-thats my opinion anyway.
This song is good but can get kinda tiring the way it goes on and on. Its still a good song
Final track on the cd. Its an odd song-firstly, the bassist, D'arcy Wretzkey dose lead vocals on the acoustic part of the song, and she sings in quite a cool, consistant way. Then there is a break, and Billy Corgan just had to stick his nose in and add another bit to the song where he is repeatedly saying he is going crazy.
This is a really cool album, and i hope my review has made someone want to go and buy it.
