EDITORS’ NOTES

Though the Pumpkins were considered an alt-rock band, many of leader Billy Corgan’s moves were influenced by the grand concept rock of Queen, Rush, and Led Zeppelin. It’s Corgan’s insistence at achieving the strongest studio sound possible that distinguishes songs such as “Drown” (here in a truncated version from the Singles soundtrack), “Cherub Rock,” “Today,” “Disarm,” “Bullet with Butterfly Wings," and “1979” from the grungy crowd. Covering Fleetwood Mac's “Landslide” was a smart move, and the inclusion of “Eye” (from the Lost Highway soundtrack) and “Untitled” (said to be the band’s final studio recording with bassist Melissa Auf der Maur and guitarist James Iha) are welcome additions. It’s a history of the '90s from one major band’s point of view.

Greatest Band

This is an amazing contribution to the band, including all of their songs that are songs you have to listen to before you die. If you're new to the pumpkins, buy this IMMEDIATELY.

Smashing Pumpkins...Smashing Hits.

Greatest CD possibly ever made (from my point of view) has hits that smashed the charts like "1979", "Today", "Disarm", "Cherub Rock", "Bullet with Butterfly Wings", and many more. This CD is five star worthy.
