Back when I reviewed Jane’s Addiction and the Chili’s, I was neglectful of another monument of alternative rock in the 90’s/00’s: Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream. Their first effort Gish was OK but my favorite is Siamese Dream from 1993. There is no let up on this disk. From the raging Cherub Rock start, the ironic Quiet and the beautiful Today, this album gets off to an amazing start. The jams here include Hummer, Geek USA, Soma, and Mayonaise – all classics. This is one of those albums for which one dreams of flying down I-95 in a convertible with a massive sound system blasting. You’ll see me head-thrashing at my steering wheel when one of the tracks comes up during my morning commute.
After this, they of course did the Mellon Collie albums which had highlights (1979 in particular) but the albums after that seemed to lose their way in Corgan’s ever expanding ego and mounting emotional problems. I prefer to jam out on Siamese Dream.
