2.0 poorSandbitchButthole | September 14th 18

This is actually a concept album about Billy Corgan's bald head.

It's not TERRIBLE for what it is - Shiny And Oh So Bright,
Vol. 1 is perfectly competent with songwriting and
composition - but really, the fuck is this happy shit? I
get that Corgan's old now and got over shit, but aside from
"Solara" and "Marchin' On" (neither of which rank anywhere
near their best work), most of the record is generic pop-
rock with overblown production (thanks Rick Rubin, you
still suck) and music so saccharine and corny it makes me
retch. Talk about disappointing for James and Jimmy's
return to the fold, neither one gets any real standout
moments, and even Corgan's incendiary leads and riffage are
basically nowhere to be found. Too many major-key pop
ballads in general that don't play to their strengths - I
wanted an angsty, loud, theatric, grimy fuzzy return-to-
form SP record with dope guitars and drums, and I'm pretty
sure everyone else did too... instead we get Zwan 2.0, I
guess, but less good.

2.5 averageDDDeftoneDDD | December 17th 18

Good but way too much Corgan centered poprock album and relying too much on the band's classics

Bump

2.5 average | November 18th 18

Probably my favorite of theirs since Machina 1 actually, so it's a step in the right direction. "Solara" and "Alienation" were legit good songs. Most of this is still pretty bland though and "Marchin' On" is just a joykill.

Bump

3.0 goodItsTheSquirrel | November 16th 18

It?s above average but just with the smallest of margins, I expected better from this band

Bump

3.0 goodxenox | November 16th 18

this album's okay tbh. i didn't like it all at first but it kinda grew on me. i like solara, silvery sometimes and marchin' on. i was expecting knights of malta to be a lot better through, with a title like that.

3.5 greatNathaniel | November 15th 18

If the whole album is anything like the singles we might be getting Mellon Collie era SP back.

Bump

2.5 averagemrfixit | November 12th 18

I was hoping for something the more in line with my taste with the addition of James. I thought the last two albums were
very solid and enjoyed them... This one isn't resonating with me all that much unfortunately.

The smashing pumpkins today is basically A Billy corgan solo career. The original band members are on their first 3 albums. Billy corgan had some good albums after but it's hard to call them smashing pumpkins albums
