"DISTORTION-soaked" album, Peripheral Vision? I think you misspelled "reverb." There is a serious lack of distortion on that album, which is kind of what gives it that cohesive sound that so many people loved. Stoked on more new music from these guys, one of if not my favorite from last year.

Yeah, i agree with your points completely. I'm not trying to defend him. I guess it's good that alcoholism made him blurt out these comments, in a way, since now he has to address those deep-rooted issues directly.

Agreed, and sad as well. The regrettable comments he is atoning for sound like alcoholism to me.

Good point. If so then, yes, for sure! :)

Plainsong as a musical endeavor was not invented by the Cure on Disintegration, so if anything, they pulled it from the same source: religion.

Probably true, IF you don't think OK Computer is Radiohead at their best. They're always the exception though, aren't they?

What band from the 90s wasn't better in the 90s?

This is awesome! Talk about a forgotten band (critically). One of the biggest snubs in Pitchfork history. Remember when they gave Source Tags & Codes a 10.0 rating? Then remember when they listed their top 200 albums of the 2000s and listed Source Tags as number 100? Yeah, ok. How many albums in the top 100 were given a perfect 10 when they were released? Sigh.

You're right in a lot of ways about their down trend, but I think World's Apart was a pretty great album. To each their own!

Nah, I love Cornell. Mainly commented not to be a troll, rather in reaction to so many people ripping on Billy Corgan every chance they get. Music appreciation is so subjective. This is simply a forum where people discuss said music appreciation, etc. This paragraph you wrote, however, is pretty insulting and immature.

So he wrote a eulogy for Scott Weiland and you're upset that he didn't mention Chris Cornell?

This guy is right. ^ He was talking about kindness, not music. Sad how so many people grasp at any reason to be hurtful. What are you all gaining from it?

True, I'm just saying the influence of his bandmates changes his music. So when he handpicks the bandmates, his writing is more self-absorbed, but when he started the band with James, he was younger and more impressionable, possibly. Opinions...

I really like your analysis of the influence of Billy's bandmates on Billy's songwriting. I think this theory might be spot on. Even though Billy can and has been able to "play all the instruments" except the drums, his songwriting REALLY SUFFERS when it appears he is only in it to please himself. Knowing some of the band's history, back in the early days of the Pumpkins I felt like Billy definitely respected James in a way that he WANTED James to like his songs! If you think this didn't make Billy second guess some of his songwriting choices then I think you're crazy...which is why i think all the "Billy IS the smashing pumpkins" nonsense is just flat out wrong.
