Essential Pumpkins purchase Feb. 29 2004
By Adam Rickards - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The 1979 EP was originally part of the Aeroplane Flies High box set, but if you're lucky enough to find it sold separately, go ahead and buy it. It has the classic "1979" plus five cuts that didn't make it onto Mellon Collie. "Ugly," an ode to low self-esteem, has kind of a Cars sound to it, and it's one of the Pumpkins' most interesting tracks. "The Boy" and "Believe" are two poppier numbers written by James Iha ("Believe" is my favorite of the two). The last song, "Set the Ray to Jerry," is one of my favorite Pumpkins songs.
This CD is fun to listen to. It showcases the Pumpkins' alternative pop side very well. If you see this in a used CD bin, don't hesitate for a second to buy it.

One of the best singles ever March 17 2002
By Jenbug - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been a major Pumpkins fan for 8 years now, and I just have to say that this is one of the best collections of "B" sides out there. It really embodies their style, from Gish to MCIS. The 6th track, "Set the Ray to Jerry" is one of my absolute favorite Pumpkins songs, and "Cherry" is another one. If you like the Pumpkins, this is a must for your collection. =)

The Pretty Pumpkins Jan. 19 2009
By L. Ricciuti - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Smashing Pumpkins are like two bands in one. You have the snarling, heavy Smashing Pumpkins that operate on one side of the alt-rock spectrum, and the soft, super-sensitive "Pretty" Pumpkins who operate on the other. This EP is the Pretty Pumpkins sprinkled with hipster dust. The arrangemnts are minimalistic (except maybe for the title track), the melodies sweet, and the lyrics yearning. My personal favorite is "Cherry".
I like EPs. Something about the compactness and focus just charms me to no end. Also, the simple truth is that with less songs, there are less duds (with good bands, at least). Consequently, there are no duds on this EP. That's why it gets five stars.

i used to own this CD, but a trip to Santa Barbara made me lose the CD...however, if your a Core Pumpkin fan or just getting into them, this CD is a MUST HAVE regardless of can feel the emotion pouring out in the songs...

This German CD is a smash hit with me! July 30 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This six-song CD is well worth the price when you buy it. I liked the song 1979, of course, and the song The Boy especcially. It showed me that the pumpkins are more than what I thought they were! Great CD!
