Smashing Pumpkins – Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness

30 09 2010

Listened: Monday September 13

I’m kind of shocked how much more I enjoy Mellon Collie than when it originally came out. At the time, I wasn’t a big Smashing Pumpkins fan and I couldn’t yet handle “harder” music (yes, I know Smashing Pumpkins aren’t that hard on the scale of things, but they are very guitar heavy). I remember touring the dorms at Cal as a prospective freshman and seeing a sticker of the album cover on someone’s door. Not sure why I remember that so vividly.

All the famous songs like 1979 (which I did always really like), Tonight, Bullet With Butterfly Wings, Zero, are all great for nostalgia purposes. I discovered I really like Here Is No Why, Cupid De Locke, Muzzle, and Thirty-Three too. Even though this album probably could have been trimmed down to one album, for a double album, there isn’t a lot of filler.
