I don't go around saying things like "one of the best songs ever. Period." That's why. Not everything always has to be categorized as best ever or GOD or whatever, just chill mannnnn
Anyone check out the Gish or Siamese reissues? I ordered both from Amazon and both sound PHENOMENAL with a marked difference from the originals and not just a victim of the loudness war.
I think my favorite part of the entire thing are the DVDs that come with each one. The Gish set comes with a show from 1990 (one of the first known performances of the band) and is interesting to say the least.
The real prize is the DVD extra on the Siamese set. The DVD is a show in Chicago from 1993 for the record release party of the album. The show is absolutely stunning and I just could not stop watching it all day. Highly recommended.
Did you acquire the reissues on cd or vinyl? I'm just curious if I should go for the vinyl, which would give me closure on whether or not I should FINALLY purchase a record player.
Edit: I'm retarded! Apparently the CD deluxe version comes with the DVDs of those early live performances. Thanks for letting us know that the quality is considerably better with the remastering of Gish and SD.
I got them on CD. Got the deluxe version that comes with an extra CD of b-sides (which are awesome) and a DVD performance.
These are seriously some of the best remastered recordings I've ever heard...if you are a fan of the these albums I highly suggest checking them out.

Excited to announce 'Oceania' album will drop early June.
thanks for posting Chris...I (unlike most) have high hopes for the album given what I heard live at the Wiltern last year. Also, for those interested the Pisces Iscariot re-issue should be dropping in April-May ish and will contain a bonus DVD containing one of the band's first known live performances in 1988.
do they have plans to rerelease mellon collie, adore, and machina?
For the record, those are the three I am most excited about. I would be very interested to see what else they can squeeze from the Mellon Collie era. They officially released 56 songs from that f-ing album!
For your health
I need to pick up those remasters on vinyl. I might as well start with Gish.
The new SP album OCEANIA is NOW available for streaming on itunes UK: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/M...41896&s=143444
Most SP fans so far are freaking out about how good it is....I just started listening but really enjoy it so far.
Wow I really am liking it.
i'm about half way through it and i'm struggling with it. i can't see myself giving this repeat listens.
Nathan do you not like "The Celestials"? I think that is the best song Corgan has written in a long time. The title track is also really good too.
i don't know, i haven't seen the track titles, i'm just streaming it from iTunes. this just isn't clicking with me the way their first 3 did.
"The Celestials" starts around the 8:40 mark and is freaking gorgeous
This album is just about what I expected.
Weak and very forgettable. Bass player is terrible
It reminds me of Maroon 5 but worse
Remembering 10 years of blink-182's iconic untitled record
Corgan did not play bass on the record.
The full band participated in the recording of this album.

It is their profession to play the instrument. They obviously have some level of proficiency.
A proper usage of a bass player being terrible: "Theklein25 picked the bass up for the first time today. He is terrible at playing the bass. Maybe he will get better...Probably not."
Details on the Pisces Iscariot re-issue finally available....tons of wonderful rare tunes from the era that fans have wanted to get their hands on for a while....
fuck yes! i can't wait for this. there are some serious gems on that album.
edit: i guess after this one is Mellon Collie, right? I'm excited to see what he does for that one.
