4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for "Medellia" alone Feb. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
This EP was part of the Aeroplane Flies High box set, and it represents another facet of the Smashing Pumpkins' sound. After the initial string-drenched epic of the titile track, we hear five songs that show off the acoustic side of the Smashing Pumpkins. "Mealdorie Magpie" does have kind of a country-ish twang to it (James Iha's influence, perhaps?), but the remaining tracks are all Billy Corgan going solo. While the songs aren't perfect (some of them feel unfinished), there are a few moments here that really stand out. "Rotten Apples" is laced with some subtle string touches that work rather well, and if you're a fan of "Disarm," then you'll probably like this song, too. "Jupiter's Lament" does exactly what it says...it laments, but it does feature some nice lyrics. "Blank" is okay, but the real winner here is "Medellia of the Gray Skies." Every once in a while, Billy could pull off a moment that was just spectacular, and this is one of those moments. His vocals are kind of echoey, but that adds to the feel of the song, and the classical-style guitar playing give this song an otherworldly quality unlike any other. This beauty is nearly matched with the closer, a solo acoustic version of "Tonight." The melody is played more slowly, giving it an aching charm that was missing from the original.
This CD has some great Pumpkins moments and deserves to be heard. If you are interested in checking this out, don't wait any longer. It's completely worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars lovely, but rough Nov. 28 2000
By "farlig" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This 'single' is a great way to hear billy corgan's intimate side. I say billy corgan because most of the tracks (besides the title track) are solo, just acoustic guitar and voice. The songs are not perfect, Billy's voice is gentle and a little out of tune. But each song is soft and pretty, and the ep as a whole is a nice glimpse of this facet of sp. My personal favorite is the 'tonight reprise', basically a solo version of the single. It sounds like it was recorded in someone's living room, but the beauty of the song comes through well. Bottom line: if you are a pumpkin to the core, you need this single. If you buy the albums for the hits, skip this single.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is raw and sweet July 2 2003
By Joshua Schumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Out of all the singles in the box set and in that case out of all SP releases this is the most mellow. In parts it has a twangy, country sort of feel and thoughout it is beautiful. I got the box set right when in came out and this single was the saddest thing I had ever heard with track six being the saddest song. It has a lot of feeling in it. I have all their albums but all I really ever listen to anymore is the box set. Its well worth it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love that unreleased stuff. May 19 2005
By TreyC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The pumpkins during their career released a wealth of amazing music on their albums (in my view the greatest rock band of the 90s).Every track on every one of these albums lived up to a certain standard,On the same note they were never shy about showing some tracks that never made the cut.Surprisingly alot of these tracks were sometimes better than those put on record.In this case Medellia of the gray skies, although Mellon collie was packed with killer tracks there could have been room for this one somewhere along the line.The tonite reprise which is a more basic version of The album track also passes a lot of their tracks.Either way Its good that they actually released these tracks and gave the listeners the oppurtunity to hear them.
