Product Description

Amazon.ca

Emotionally over-the-top pop extravaganzas like the string-swelling "Tonight Tonight," the Metallica-influenced alternative rock of "Zero," the techno via new wave of "1979"--the 28 songs on this swell two-disc album are as eclectic as their themes are epic and ambitious. Billy Corgan's thin whine isn't much of an instrument, but he makes the most of it by writing smart songs that take emotional chances that more-typical alt rockers would deem uncool. Pessimistic and feeling trapped but still wanting to believe in love, in a future, in something--this is the sound of Gen X at the millennium, with all the self-indulgence and power that would suggest. --David Cantwell

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Simply the Greatest Album ever created. July 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is the greatest combination of musical genius ever created. I feel that Billy Corgan achieved Musical Immortality with the earth shattering collection that is these two CDs. A huge collection of all types of rock, so no matter what your flavor, you will find it all in this stunning variety. It's the only album I have ever listened to that I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of the songs. Galapogos, Tonight, Tonight, Bullet With Butterfly Wings, Stumbleine, and Zero rank among my all time favorite songs. I completely recommend the collection of B-Sides from this album found in the "Aeroplane Flies High" box set. If you have never heard of the Smashing Pumpkins (Shame, if you haven't) or simply have never picked up this album, do now, as you will enjoy it till the end of time. It's just too bad the greatest band ever formed is no longer around, but their music will live on forever

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is a unique album due to its wide expansion of musical genres. It flows slowly form the beginning until you hit the song "Jellybelly" which turns the album into a swirling melodic work of art with its twisting guitar notes. Mellon Collie satisfies all your tastes for music. The orchestra of symphony in the song "Tonight, Tonight" proves that Billy Corgan is not only a master at songwriting and the guitar, but at performing songs that lead totally away from the rock world, and still count as rock. Not only a c.d. for all tastes of music, but also in a small way, you can count Mellon Collie in as a tribute c.d. that not only honors teenage angst and pain, but to the band Queen. The song "Porcelina of the Vast Oceans" is a 9:21 opus of soft melody combined with the rifts of James Iha and his guitar to commemorate the band in a way. The first c.d. not only houses soft, lullabye songs such as "Tonight, Tonight" and "Porcelina of the Vast Oceans" but loud, in- your- ear guitar playing songs that travel from the depths of "Zero", and "Bullet With Butterfly Wings", to the heights of "Love", and "Muzzle". In a way, the entire c.d. seems to find ways to mold the heavy, angstful guitar notes into a brighter, happier tone which is a success in this c.d. The second c.d. in this double set entitled "Twilight to Starlight" definitely delivers the heavy, poetic guitar playing, as the first c.d. does. The c.d. starts, with slow, rythmic guitar, and floods over its banks in the songs "Bodies", "Tales of a Scorched Earth", and "XYU" creating a metallic masterpiece. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Indescribable in every imaginable sense July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is the best release by the Pumpkins, and one of the best collection of music ever. The arrangement and layout of the music is flawless and the tempo manages to remain unpredictable yet somehow correct through the entire album. There are just too many songs to talk about, but my favorites are definitely "Tonight, Tonight", "Jellybelly", "Here Is No Why", "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" (with what is arguably Jimmy Chamberlain's greatest drum performance), "To Forgive", "Galapagos" (great lyrics "If we died right now/This fool you loved/Somehow is here with you), album epic "Porcelina of the Vast Oceans" (plays out like a Shakespearan play), "Bodies" (which reminds us "Love is suicide"), "1979" (modern rock hit, the events mirror what probably happened to the youth in 1969, 89, 99, and probably 09 as well, brilliant song, hopeful lyrics), and megaunderrated "Thru the Eyes of Ruby" (another album epic with the line "The night has come to hold us young", which gives ultimate hope to a generation that is somehow managing to lose its way).
Ten tracks listed above, these are the ones that truly stand head and shoulders above the remaining. Not to take anything away from the others as they are role players and role players are also important in every great album. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is what the 90's were all about, and it makes me proud to have been getting into good modern music (nothing beats classics) when this album, along with efforts such as (What's the Story) Morning Glory? by Oasis, The Bends by Radiohead were the great albums, and major breakthroughs not only in musicianship, but also in terms of a band having the substance, the guts, the mojo.
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is brilliant in every sense, and Billy Corgan in his prime as a frontman. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars I hate writing titles to reviews July 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" by the Smashing Pumpkins was easily the biggest (in every sense of the word) album to hit in the post-grunge alternative rock heyday that was my adolescence. In fact, I would say that this was the early peak of the movement - a seemingly bloated double album by a band that had a slew of hits off their major label debut just a few years earlier. Soon enough, everyone had a "Zero" shirt and listened to this album day and night, or at least the half-dozen or so singles that were played on modern rock radio.
The best thing I can say about this release is that I have no problem sitting down and listening to the whole thing (that's two hours, kids), even 9 years after its initial release. And it's solid. The whole double-disc affair holds up well for those entire two hours. The reason that it doesn't get the coveted five-star rating is that the bulk of the songs are good, with a few occassional forays into "great." Fortunately, there are no duds on this album. "Muzzle," "Tales of a Scorched Earth," "1979," "X.Y.U.," and "An Ode to No One" are the cream of the crop, but like I said, the rest of the album deserves repeated listenings.
Anyone that grew up around this time and listened to alternative rock either owned this at one point, knew someone that did, or still does own it. It really is an essential release for its time and place, and it holds up very well into the 21st century.
