Product Description

Product Description

Double vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition of this 1993 album from the Alt-Rock band led by Billy Corgan. While their album Gish had brought them to the attention of the Alternative crowd, Siamese Dream was the album that broke the quartet in a big way. Features the hits 'Cherub Rock', 'Today' and many more.

An introductory drum roll drops out and is replaced by a single suspended electric guitar, which is then paralleled by a snare, filled in with the bass, and--crash!--"Cherub Rock," the opening track, is enveloped in an explosion of metal guitar. So the journey begins. This album is pre-experimentation vintage Pumpkins. Produced by Butch Vig (Garbage, Sonic Youth, Nirvana's Nevermind), Siamese Dream is first about guitars. Lots and lots of guitars. A very close second is Jimmy Chamberlain's unquestionably excellent power drumming. Throughout each song, Billy Corgan delivers angsty lyrics in his signature breathy whine. "Disarm" is a nice intermission halfway though the album. As the title of the song suggests, it throws the listener into a different mood with its full string arrangements and radiant orchestral chimes. But then it is back to the aural masochism--a pain that rarely sounds so sweet. --Beth Bessmer

There aren't enough good things to say about "Siamese Dream". In my opinion, it's flawless; there is no filler and no note is wasted. The Smashing Pumpkins were unique, no other band could have written these songs, with all it's twists and turns. This has Billy Corgan's best lyrics as well.
"Cherub Rock" starts it all. It was the first single released back in 1993. "Cherub Rock" shows that Billy Corgan can sing. It has plenty of guitars of course. 10/10
"Quiet" is a real good rocker. The guitars churn, it's amazing. This is as heavy as it gets on the record (which isn't really heavy by my standards). 8/10
"Today" was the second single, and it is definitely one of the top ten singles of the 90's. Enough said. 10/10
"Hummer" is something only the Smashing Pumpkins could have wrote. It's great. It just twists and turns, goes from quiet to loud to quiet again, and it's almost 7 minutes long. This is probably my favorite song. The lyrics are great too. 10/10
"Rocket" I think was a single, well the Smashing Pumpkins have a video for it at least. I used never care for this song, but after seeing on the internet the Pumpkins playing this live, I became a fan of the song. It's another song that only the Pumpkins could have written, because it meanders and there's no chorus. Once again, I like the lyrics. 10/10
"Disarm" was the third single from this record. It has excellent lyrics to it. I guess the bells and violins in the song might bother people. But it doesn't bother me at all. 10/10
"Soma" starts off slow and dreamy and rocks at the end. I don't like it as much as I used to, but don't get me wrong, this is still an excellent song. 8/10
"Geek U.S.A." rawks.

When amazon describes this vinyl pressing as heavy weight they mean it. When it arrived I noticed the record was particularly thick (about 6mm). Both records were perfectly flat. Sound quality was great as I expected and the album is excellent. I could go on about this album but chances are if you are reading this you already know how great it is.

FORGET Nevermind.

This album is in a league of its own.

I bought this album around four or five years ago, after only hearing two songs by the band. The Smashing Pumpkins are now my favourite band, and Siamese Dream is my favourite album.

I listen to this album at least once a month, and it's a wonder I haven't needed to replace it yet! I won't go in-depth on every song; but I will say that this album would be a worthwhile addition to your CD collection, wherever your taste in music lies.

This album displays the perfect blend of soaring guitars and clean vocals. All the layers upon layers adds a certain quality to this album. You KNOW it wasn't recorded in a fortnight in some pokey studio in the middle of nowhere. This album has been carefully tweaked and re-tweaked into the masterpiece it has become. This is something very few bands since the demise of the Pumpkins have been concerned about.

One of the things I love most about this album is the constant see-sawing of emotions, ranging from moody, to quiet, to uplifting and bitter.

Stand-out tracks are the classics 'Today', 'Cherub rock', and 'Disarm'. Personal favourites of mine are 'Quiet', 'Hummer', 'Rocket', and 'Geek U.S.A.'.

This album really made an impact on me. Apart from introducing me to a whole new kind of music, it also gave me the inspiration and motivation I needed to learn guitar. Whatever mood I'm in, this album has seen me through it.

Buy this CD now, you won't regret it!!!

This might not be the longest Smashing Pumpkins album, or have the most radio singles, but it is by far the best and most cohesive album Billy Corgan put out, from beginning to end. The production is raw and in-your-face, unlike their later, over-produced albums. This album is fresh, vital rock music. Definitely one of the best mainstream rock albums of the 90's.
It has some of the band's biggest singles on it... The inspirational, (somewhat) uplifting "Today", the loud, melodic "Cherub Rock", and the acoustic favourite "Disarm", complete with dramatic bells and strings in the background. Also the lesser-known "Rocket", a decent song that kind of goes on pleasantly, with a dramatic ending ("I will be free!")
However the strength of this album is not just its singles, but almost all of the songs are excellent, or at the very least pretty good, and some of these album tracks should be considered "up there" with the band's best-known songs.
There's the rocking "Geek U.S.A." with one crazy guitar solo in it; "Mayonnaise" which is a nice softer, melodic song; and the ABSOLUTE highlight of the album, "Soma".
This song has got to be the VERY BEST thing Billy Corgan did. It starts off with an absolutely dreamy delay-and-reverb soaked clean electric guitar, then the gentle, depressing verse comes in "Nothing left to say/nothing left to do/but run away from you." The song progresses further, then quiets... then... BAM! The distorted guitar kicks in with such appropriate force it blows the mind. This song has the best, most personal, heartbreaking lyrics Billy ever wrote about a failed relationship, and also one of his very best guitar solos EVER (it was played with a bow!).
