5.0 out of 5 stars you must buy this Oct. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
Okay let me just say this first.A reviewer commented that early pumpkins was like wannabe nirvana or something like that.Please ignore him, i guess he doesn't realize that kurt kobain wasn't the first to use fuzzed out lo fi guitars and soft loud dynamics (the pixies did it before nirvana).In fact it's arguable that the so called grunge sound originated in chicago just as much as seattle, and what makes this even more outrageous is that some of these songs were written before nirvana was even formed. Anyway, i suggest that any fan of early nineties alternative music buy this. This ep has quality over quantity. I wont discuss rino or blu because im sure youve heard them.if you haven't there excellent. Slunk is a heavy rocker and bye june is a very simplistic, beautiful song.So buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stay with me for awhile July 9 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Smashing Pumpkins first smashed onto the scene in 1991, with the groundbreaking rock masterpiece "Gish."

And as with all their albums, they had some leftover songs that didn't make the cut. But they did make it onto the tiny gem "Lull," along with one of the songs from the album proper -- a beautiful demonstration of all the Pumpkins' rock'n'ballad dimensions, though not their best work.

It opens with an ethereal little buildup, and climaxes into a slow, full-bodied ballad, full of gentle guitar grinds and drums. "Could have known/I would reveal/Should have known/I would conceal your way," Corgan murmurs, before announcing that "she knows, she knows" over and over.

Things go into rock'n'roll mode with "Blue," which builds itself up on a bunch of hefty chords, into a dizzying swirl of bassrock... and changes tempo into a slow-burning, epic rocker halfway through. "Slunk" is a different animal -- all blazing chords and riffs, going at about a hundred MPH as Corgan strangles the guitar into screaming. Finally there's "Bye June," which is just a mellow, sweet little acoustic ballad.

The Pumpkins were still getting their footing when this EP came out, and "Lull," in a way, is all about the then-young band exploring the limits of their musical abilities, and what would fit into their albums. It's also astoundingly good -- each song is a brilliant example of its type, whether a mellow ballad or a high-octane rocker.

In fact, you wouldn't know that these songs were made by a new band -- Corgan and James Iha blast out the solid, muscular riffs, but Corgan also does a gentle acoustic number at the end, and "Rhinoceros" has strong riffs glimmering just under the surface.

3.0 out of 5 stars Calm before the storm May 9 2000
By Sal Nudo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is kind of a nostalgic little EP for us Generation Xers. It's Gish-era material and B-sides that would do any Pumpkins fan proud. After "Lull," the Smashing Pumpkins upped the ante and ran away with their success, making these simple songs that much more of a treasure. Gish's "Rhinocerous" mixes a dreamy start to buzzsaw guitars that later take over, almost nullifying the heartfelt but sappy lyrics. The short "Blue" starts with quiet wind chimes and a belching bass, which gives way to thumping drums, quiet interludes and a bizarre bridge that peters out. "Blue" foreshadows some of the future pop the Pumpkins would delve into, whereas "Slunk" contains wild guitars and snotty lyrics, properly leading off this era of music, stuff that rivaled even Nirvana's. Finally, "Bye June" is as tender as "Slunk" is rambunctious. The song features spacey lyrics and an acoustic guitar, nothing more. It's pure magic from a band just beginning to tap into its abandonment and potential. Unfortunately, because of its length, "Lull" is nothing spectacular. The songs are good, a few borderline great, but my understanding is that this band had many more great unreleased tunes from 1989. Now that's scary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the # of tracks fool you, this CD is great Feb. 15 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD, showing completely different sides of the Pumpkins in each song. Rhinocerous, which should be a classic to any pumpkin fan, showing the mellow rock. Slunk, which unleashes the anger & harshness of songs like pissant and tales of a scorched earth. and Bye June, which is a simple, yet great tune that gives the empty, and sad feeling with just Billy & his acoustic. This CD has it all, and is a must for any kind of Pumpkin fan

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for some, unnecessary for others July 8 2003
By "poormansprophet" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
True pumpkins fans should bear in mind that two of the four tracks can be obtained elsewhere, however, the remaining two are early pumpkins gold. To those who are only occasional fans and mostly favor the more conemporary stuff anyway, this is not really for you. Personally this music just takes me back to a different time and those two extra little tracks are essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again the Smashing Pumpkins sell themselves short Jan. 27 2000
By Brandon Edge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, the Smashing Pumpkins are the greatest band to ever exist. The combination of the music, the lyrics, and the very unique vocal style of Corgan make the band the most original act to come out of the nineties, and they overshadow their influences. This is just another release that could have been more. If they wanted to put out unreleased songs they could've added :spiteface, jennifer ever, nothing and everything, under your spell, egg, mother, my dahlia, sun, love(1989), c'mon, with you, stars falling, daughter, jesus loves his babies, etc. etc...the idea of leaving these songs unreleased is to me like whole books missing out of a bible would be to a christian, ITS JUST A CRYIN SHAME...but get the cd anyway, slunk just totally RULES RULES RULES! the greatest band ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasently Surprised May 6 2000
By Kiaki Sue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I brought the Lull EP in an obscure little bookstore in London. It was raining like mad and i was unhappy and depressed. I was skimming through the bargain bin and liked the cover atrwork, so i asked the man at the front desk if i could have a listen...i listened to "Bye June" first and fell head over heels in love...i had never heard of the smashing pumpkins and went out and got "Gish" and "Siamese Dream" when i returned to the states. "Siamese Dream" is now my all-time favorite album but i was a little dissappointed by "Gish". Don't let the number of tracks fool you, "Lull" is great!
