"The listening patterns have changed, so why are we killing ourselves to do albums, to create balance, and do the arty track to set up the single? It's done."

Just got Zeitgeist. Since Mellon Collie finally helped me 'get' the Pumpkins, Siamese Dream didn't really do much for me, even though I heard some really interesting elements, and Machina didn't really stand out too much either. So far I'm liking the Zeit.

Machina II is a really cool album too, probably my favorite after Mellon Collie':

Whats everyones opinion on Adore? Ive seen a lot of people and talked to a lot of people who have disliked it. I happen to really dig it. I mean its different from their other albums which I also love very much, but i have seen a lot of resentment towards this album and i dont understand it

I think people dislike the album because there's very little "rock" to be found on it, but I still enjoy it.

To Shelia, Ava Adore, Perfect, and Blank Page are some of my favorite 'Pumpkins tunes.

Nevermind, it's just under a weird file name and I couldn't find it in iTunes. (Named Cmon with some random numbers after it)

I think it's a really good album to listen to if you've had a bad day. It's not in your face, the melodies are soothing, it gives you something to concentrate on instead of your problems...but it only works for me in situations like that. Otherwise I have a hard time getting into it.

And holy shit, Jimmy left? Must've had something hardcore go down between Billy and Jimmy to get him to leave after all these years!

billy was always the major creative force, with jimmy just behind. i mean christ billy recorded all of siamese dream himself other than drums of course.


its still a crushing loss though because jimmy was a founding member and a fantastic drummer.

the pumpkins are still the pumpkins, billy is such a control freak that he recorded most of the songs himself. iha and d'arcy helped a bit but it was always billy's vision.

I'm happy to finally announce the plans for the new Smashing Pumpkins album.

Recording began yesterday, September 15th, 2009 on the new record which will be entitled 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope'. The album will feature 44 songs, 4 of which are now being recorded. My desire is to release a song at a time beginning around Halloween of this year, with each new release coming shortly after until all 44 are out. Each song will be made available absolutely for free, to anyone anywhere. There will be no strings attached. Free will mean free, which means you won't have to sign up for anything, give an email address, or jump through a hoop. You will be able to go and take the song or songs as you wish, as many times as you wish.

We will however sell highly limited edition EP's (of 4 songs each times 11), and details of how those EP's will be made available are still being worked out. Because the songs themselves will be free, the EP's will be more like collectors items for the discerning fan who will want the art itself, along with the highest possible audio quality available. The EP's will be more like mini-box sets rather than your normal cd single. We may also offer other variations for sale, say for example a digital single with a demo version of a song. The commitment that is most important is the one I'm making to you: that the music of 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope' will be available for free to everyone. All 44 songs: free for ALL.

When the entire album is finished, it will be compiled into a deluxe box set which will also be made available for sale. Those who have bought the EP's need not worry, as the box set will not be a recompilation of the limited edition pieces.

The story of the album is based on 'The Fool's Journey', as signified in the progress of the Tarot. It is my intention to approach this by breaking down the journey of our life here into four phases as made by these different characters; the Child, the Fool, the Skeptic, and the Mystic.

The music of 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope' harkens back to the original psychedelic roots of The Smashing Pumpkins: atmospheric, melodic, heavy, and pretty.

I already have 53 songs written for the record, so I am quite confident that I already have much of the material that I would need to undertake such an extensive project. I am very committed to seeing this album through to its completion and very, very excited about the prospect of delivering new Smashing Pumpkins music to you in a unique and exciting way.

I doubt it. They just started recording a few days ago. I really can't wait for this freaking album, but I don't agree with the way it's being put out...well maybe I just fear change, but damn I love the standard format they we have all come acustom to.
