    Default The Smashing Pumpkins - Oceania (new album)

    Loving it so far. Pretend that the band went on hiatus after 1998, and "Zeitgeist" never happened. Also, you'll need to get over the fact that the only original member is Billy Corgan. Rest assured, you've now go this fine lady serenading your eyes ears on the bass guitar.



    The album dropped today and is available for purchase on iTunes and/or for free stream on Spotify.



    The guy is contentious but he's kind of likable at the same time. A nice, recent interview with Billy about the current state of the music business.

    I <3 Billy, but I haven't been in to SP since Mellon Collie. Machina was okay, but I didn't care for Ava Adore and haven't heard anything of theirs since. Which is too bad, because Siamese Dream pretty much go me through middle school!! But I will check out this new album, if you say it is good.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I'll certainly try it, but I have no expectations.

    I really like track 2, "Panopticon" (beast of a song) and 3, "The Celestials".

    Thanks for posting the interview. I've been looking forward to this album for a while now and it has not disappointed thus far. Is it so bad that one of my favorite SP songs is from Zeitgeist? :P

    Heh, Zeitgeist had a couple of good songs but overall I (and most others it seems) feel like the album was a bust. The production was pretty bad...

    What song is your favorite?

    From Zeitgeist it has to be "7 Shades of Black". It's practically a 10 way tie for my favorite SP song in general. I also really enjoyed the one Zwan album, but then again I do have a tendency to root for the underdog so it's probably just me :/
