  • The Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgiest [Official Thread]

    Who else here is/was a big fan of this group back when they were still around?

    I must admit, I did not get into them until after they were already broken up. I wasn't a big fan of the band Billy Corgan formed afterwards or his solo cd either. But, I'm glad to hear they've reunited and are working on a new album.

    So, who else here was a fan of theirs back in the day? I'm still unable to pick my favourite album by them. Everyone of them has something to offer.

    Dear Beautiful Souls,

    Happy New Year to you! May 2007 prove to be a blessed year in every respect and every way...I send you every ounce of love I have in my heart...May the grace of Mother be with you...This year for us will see a new album of songs and a world tour of tears, and we truly look forward to playing again for fans young, old, and missed...So yes, tunes are being dusted off, while others are being asked to kindly submit to an upstart millennia and all it's asking...In our daily prayers, we send out the signal that all who should hear us come forward and be seen, and by extension, heard...when we opened the lid on this music box, we were pleasantly suprised at the music that played: familiar yet unknown, welcoming but not sentimental...and that is all we can ask...God has absolutely blessed us in every respect...for many years there were private laments about opportunities missed and hearts so broken, but no more...we have turned the page and moved on, from places and faces, names and games...this age calls for resolve and certitude, and the fire within to burn ever bright...if that fire should be connected to absolutely deafening guitars, thundering drums, and the melodies of snakes, then so be it! We love you! If you are meant to be with us, find us!! We have need, and our arms are ever-open...although I can say definitively we don't need jugglers...but we do need ???? (what?) what do we need!

    With a smile and a wink,
    billy corgan

            Yes, I'm definately a fan of Corgan's lyrics.. he's more of a poet then anything else in my opinion.

            At first, I was put off slightly by his voice, but it really grew on me, and he's great at softer, slow songs.

              Siamese Dream is a brilliant album. I'm definitely looking forward to new material, but I'm a little nervous regarding the assumption that this is a true reunion.

              Apparently, Corgan and Chamberlin are the only verified members of the band. If Iha and Wretzky aren't involved, you could probably say this is more of continuation of 'Zwan' (short-lived indie band put together by Corgan and Chamberlin in 2001.) If that is the case, I will be disappointed. The Smashing Pumpkins left a unique legacy as one of the premiere bands of the 1990s. They have a lot to live up to and I hope the four of them return to exceed those expectations.

              We'll see what happens.

                True.

                But, they just never comfirmed or verified that they were back on board. Though, they could be. I don't imagine D'arcy returning, but James Iha still could.

                I'll just be hopeful and won't cross out the possibility of all four being back together,

                            All I have is their Greatest Hits but I like it a lot. My favorites are probably Tonight Tonight and Disarm.

                              World Tour? If they come down here I am definetly checking them out.

                              I got two albums, Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. I liked Corgans solo album though, well I expected better.
