5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A. Curtis on July 5 2007

After a few listens this album is fantastic. Great guitar work by Corgin and SP's.

Not sure why the other reviewer had to rate this 1/5 because Amazon didn't list what the LTD Ed. had on it. That has nothing to do with the quality of the work.

Format: Audio CD
The Smashing Pumpkins are back. The legendary rock band, which blossomed like a dark rose in the musical wasteland of the 1990s.

Okay, only frontman Billy Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin have returned from the original lineup, and the absences can be detected. But their return album "Zeitgeist" is still worthy of epic praise -- dark, passionate hard-rock, written with a darkly poetic sweep. Too bad the extra material isn't so good.

The drums smash, the bass roars like unleashed tornado. "Is everyone afraid?/Is everyone ashamed?/They're running towards their holes to find out/Apocalyptic thieves/Are lost amongst our dead," Corgan drawls, telling us a story of gas masks, Kafka and fear.

It's followed with the roiling rocker "7 Shades of Black," with the level of depression you'd expect ("And without peer/And without fear/I'm without anyone at all!"). Then it pours into a series of blazing hard-rockers -- soaring grimy epics, buzzing and cascading bass rockers, a stripped-down melodic tune, and the soaringly exquisite "Pomp and Circumstances," which is only marred by Corgan singing "la la la la..."

"Zeitgeist" probably won't be gently compared to the Pumpkins' earlier classics, especially since it doesn't have James Iha and D'arcy Wretzy from the original lineup -- valuable talents both. But taken on its own virtues, it's brilliant hard-rock -- epic, dark, and with moments of sheer poetry woven into the stormy music.

If I had a main complaint, it would be that the softer songs are rare here, and that the bass doesn't have that epic quality in some of the songs. But Corgan is blazingly passionate in his playing, layering and building a storm of driving guitar and fuzzy bass.

In these days of digital dominance, it'd be easy to dismiss album artwork entirely. I won't be doing that here, though. Nor will I be reviewing the album proper, since that's not what the special edition is all about. Instead, I'd just like to give you some idea of what to expect in the booklet: plenty of tongue-in-cheek pop culture imagery, a few cutouts, lots of too-close-to-the-TV fuzz. Stylistically, I was reminded of old Pink Floyd artwork (Can album art ever escape those guys?) and to some extent, the booklet from the Deftones' latest. It's enjoyable as a companion to the printed lyrics, if nothing else. The big drawback: the CD itself gets neglected in a full-contact paperboard sleeve, so be sure to burn yourself a copy or put it in a jewel case.

Not sure if using the moniker "The Smashing Pumpkins" was appropriate. Perhaps Billy and Jimmy should have pulled a "Bachman/Cummings" title out the their hats, but then again, would the record be selling so well if they had?
Nevertheless, despite the lack of production present when compared to previous albums, there are familiar sounds here: namely the choppy pumpkin-signature 16th-note beats between guitar and drums, as heard before in such tracks as "Bodies", "An ode to noone & "Jellybelly"- now incarnated into tracks like 'Doomsday clock" & "7 shades of black". New to the mix are a saturated sea of corgan vocal back-ups, present in nearly every track. So what's missing? For starters, Billy is "happy" and it shows. Gone are the gnarled screams of angst, now replaced with abundant gnarled multi-tracked guitar solos. When listening to this album, I cant deny that I get the impression that Billy and Jimmy got together a list of "jam" tunes, for which Billy would one day have to turn into lyrical meaning (a shining point for the band in the past). The difference is that he doesnt seem frustrated and alienated with the world anymore-there is no inner-conflict to match the tone of the music, and so he choses to look to external sources-Politics, the media, global warming, etc. This direction will resonate with some, but I doubt the album will have the longevity and resonation of MCIS or Siamese Dream, because somehow the anger and frustration feels forced, as if Corgan is trying to give us what we so desperately wanted more of, only he simply has nothing more left to give.
prehaps its time for all of us to finally grow up and just be happy with what we have.
Shining points suprisingly are "That's the way (my love is)", "Bring the light", and "Come on, let's go!
