You're not crazy - Even as a big Pumpkins fan, they're wildly inconsistent.

Some stuff is absolutely terrific, and some material is absolutely terrible and just a mess of noise and vocals.

Still, I've managed to find several songs that register as simply "good," mainly on the Adore and Machina albums. So at least that bucks the "no middle ground" trend in my eyes.

okay thanx for the assurance. the songs i do like i love, its just frustrating because most bands i like are pretty consistent and not so patchy. I'm trying tho, i guess some songs are growing on me.

i really want James Iha to come back, i always liked the guy. i really hope he does i mean A Perfect Circle is done and i dont think hes doing anything else now.

MORE UPDATES/INFO

this is from their official myspace, Jimmy Chamberlain wrote it:

Hello again!

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. We have been very busy carving up the sonic landscape with oceans of guitars and a sea of fuzz bass. We are four songs deep and about a hundred guitars in! Every day is a little louder and every night is a little darker! Last night for instance, we were working on a song...a very beautiful simple song we had been playing since we got back together. A song that was never questioned because of its poignant simplicity. Suddenly, Billy looked up and said that he thought we should try to find something else in the song. A different feel. A new approach. Something besides drums, bass and guitar. We had Bo' (our assistant) bring in an old organ to see if that would change the vibe.  Instantly the song was transported to a new place . A place of symphonic majesty that made us all smile. 

It's really moments like these that make it all worth it.
Sometimes you just have to ask the question...........
At any rate, it sure was nice to play something quiet for a change!

I definitely have a really good feeling about it too - I'm so glad that Jimmy's been letting the fans know what's up with the recording process, even though we still don't know who the band is comprised of at this point.  Grin

okay, i know i said Adore was "pretty cool" earlier but i was wrong its more than that. i'm listening to it again now and i absolutely love it. To me, its better than everything they've done, even Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie. There i said it.? This record is spectacular. i know i was complaining about their consitency earlier but call me crazy i think this is their more consistent record.

The ball is really rolling - They're playing the Nova Rock Festival in June, according to their myspace announcement...

Can't wait for the album!

Haha, sometime around "now" would definitely be sensible timing for small details like that.  Smiley

i really want D'arcy and Iha on board but i think if they were in fact in the band it would have been announced by now for promotional purposes.

You're probably right.  Right now, keeping the lineup a secret only adds to the suspense and hype.

yeah it sucks but Corgan really is the primary creative force behind the Pumpkins, i mean he fucking recorded practically all of Siamese Dream on his own. I just always liked Iha and D'arcy and it would still be a shame if they arent in the band. .

This NME article essentially says it won't be the original lineup:

http://www.nme.com/news/smashing-pumpkins/26232

However, the most suprising thing to me is the fact that they're being mangaed by Paul Geary, former drummer of Extreme.

i still have my fingers crossed that all this secrecy will lead up to a big surprise that its the original lineup, even thought thats becoming less and less likely.

Zeitgeist

Another Pumpkins message
Billy Corgan posted an update about the Smashing Pumpkins reunion on his MySpace page today. He says the band's new album, Zeitgeist, will be released July 7. However, the big question remains: Who exactly is in this "reunited" band? And, if it's not all four original members, can it still be called a reunion? (Heck, at this point, I'd just settle for three members.)
