SMASHING PUMPKINS PISCES ISCARIOT 1994
IF YOU LOVE THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, YOU WOULD KNOW THEY RISE ABOVE THE REST IN THE GOTH/METAL/PUNK? YEA BILLY CORGAN IS A PUNK. THATS WHY I LOVE HIM. WHEN HE GETS HIS DARK BROODING MOODY FEELING HE CAN WRITE SOME AMAZING STUFF. YOU GOTTA LOVE THE GUITAR PLAYING AND JIMMY CHAMBERLAIN IS ONE OF THE BEST DRUMMERS OUT THERE. ( THERE IS ANOTHER DRUMMER ON THE ALBUM WHEN JIMMY WAS ON VACATION.song BLOWN AWAY by IHA. ) I MUST GIVE JAMES IHA SOME PRAISE. HE REALLY KNOWS HOW TO PULL THE NOTES OUT OF HIS FEEDBACK AND SUSTAIN. ANYBODY THAT CAN PLAY LIKE THAT AND PUT UP WITH BILLY DESERVES SOME CREDIT. AND D'ARCY WHAT CAN I SAY...SUCH A TINY MUSICIAN TO ADD SO MUCH FLAIR AND FLAVOR TO THE GROUP. THE ALBUM CONTENT CERTAINLY EXPRESSES THE MANY SIDES OF THE PUMPKINS AND ALTHOUGH THEIR FLEETWOOD MAC RENDITION OF LANDSLIDE GOT ITS SHARE OF RADIO PLAY, ANY SONG ON THIS ALBUM WOULD GRACE THE AIRWAVES.Read full review
It's Like Siamese Dream Part Two
"Siamese Dream" could've easily been a double disc and every song on "Pisces Iscariot" would fit in perfectly with the other materials. This rarities and B-sides release by the Smashing Pumpkins is great, primarily because of the variety of songs found on it. It has something for everyone, from the opening track "Soothe" which is simply Billy and an acoustic guitar to "Blew Away" featuring guitarist James Iha to the rocking "Frail and Bedazzled." You can't go wrong and every Pumpkins' fan MUST have this!
My Favorite Pumpkins Release
Like stated in the reviews before me - if Siamese Dream had a second disc, this would be it. Although it didnt get as much recognition as it greatly deserves, this album is still in rotation on my CD player after 14 years since its release. A must-have for Pumpkins fans!
Great transaction, exactly as described A+
The CD was for my girlfriend for christmas, she couldnt find it anywhere and hadnt heard the songs for years. She flipped out when she saw the album cover, it was amazing.
