A little harsh on Mojave 3 here… Ask Me Tomorrow is an amazing record.
OK, I’m going to play along, and do Corgan-related albums, not just SP, and include all b-side comps, if Pisces makes the cut:
2. Siamese Dream
3. Mellon Collie
4. Pisces Iscariot
6. Aeroplane Flies High
9. Mary, Star of the Sea
10. Machina II
12. Future Embrace
14. Judas O’
It’s probably just a matter of taste, but I’ve always been more into the softer side of Pumpkins, so Adore has been #1 for me for a long time. I’m counting Judas O’ because the name alone seems to want to be taken seriously as a counterpart to Pisces, and it’s nice to not have Zeitgiest last, as Z. is far from perfect but no where near as bad as people would have you believe.
It’s such a shame a proper album was never made of all the 2007 residency songs. Easily the best work Corgan’s done since reforming the Pumpkins.
Move Mingus up a few notches, and I’m in total agreement with this list. Nice work!
This is a great record.
This one’s for you, AnAmPat:
On Stereogum, it’s called a Spiderlandboner.

If the album captures the feeling of the new songs as they were played on the recent tour, this is going to be good. Corgan works best in an album setting, so while I’ve enjoyed the Teargarden stuff up to now, I have hopes this will be better all around.
He created something for the Rag & Bone brand? Over my dead body!
Eh, whatever. I am going to go home, listen to some of these amazing albums, and enjoy them.
This makes me very sad.

Her song with Cornershop is wonderful:
This album is great, and not just because “it sounds kind of like Heartbreaker.” Pitchfork is way off on that claim.
And yes, Easy Tiger is spotty, but Cold Roses is amazing, and well worth the listen.

Awesome. James Ferraro’s post Skaters work has been a trip…
I don’t know…I find Post a little too scattered for my tastes. For some reason it hasn’t aged as well for me personally as the other 2 have.
From what I’ve heard so far, I have a feeling this will join Homogenic and Vespertine to form the holy trinity of Bjork albums.

Now this is a return to form.
