Smashing Pumpkins – Gish

13 07 2010

Listened: Wednesday July 7

I like early Smashing Pumpkins, before Billy’s ego got out of control and when other people were actually playing the instruments and helping to write the music. Gish has palpable life in it – unlike some of the later works. Sure there are some great songs in the later SP canon, but no tight albums like this one.

Highlights include Crush (so beautiful and dreamy), Bury Me (sweet guitar work), and I really enjoy the obvious Fleetwood Mac homage of Day Dream. Well done.
