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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

It is hard to believe the Smashing Pumpkins of today are the same band who made Siamese Dream. What an awesome rock cd! This is one of the greatest rock cds of all time. I put it right up there with Nevermind and Zeppelin IV. I am listening to it as I write this review and it is incredible the power it has as it is now almost 8 years old. It has a unique mixture of beauty and power that is truly rare. Like all great rock cds it has its thrashers and it has its balads. Billy Corgan was a rocker then and his vocals are so fitting. Jimmy Chamberlain's drums are incredible throughout. If you do not own it, BUY IT! You will not be disappointed. Rock is not what it was in the early 90s when bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots were getting cranked up. Siamese Dream was also from that era and it will remind you how great rock can be. Rock is overdue for another uprising - Creed, Fuel, etc... Perhaps the Pumpkins will get in on it and produce another gem for us.

When this album came out, I had nothing going for me. I'd given up on guitar, I had no friends, my only true friend (grandfather) had died...and I felt like joining him on the other side at age 17. And then...I was watching 120 Minutes on MTV (anyone else remember when that show was actually GOOD?) and they announced a new Smashing Pumpkins video. I'd heard a couple songs from their debut GISH, actually heard 'em cos I saw their videos on the same program, and liked them but for whatever reason never picked the album up. Anyway that video was for "Cherub Rock" and man, I was hooked. I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to pick up guitar again, I wanted to blend classic rock style riffs with disillusioned lyrics, I wanted to touch in others the same nerve Billy Corgan had touched in me. As time went on I read up on Billy and it seemed his childhood had been similar to mine. Also his suicidal feelings...just everything about the guy echoed moments in my life. And his songs helped me through lonely lonely times. That's why I was so mad, 'cos when they broke up some douche bag DJ was saying "oh yeah the Pumpkins are breaking up, I've gone thru 2 boxes of Kleeenex and I need to call my therapist." Jak-off. Screw him. This was the band that kept me alive through some deep dark suicidal years, and if I met Billy I would never be able to thank him enough.

Without a doubt this album holds a special spot in my heart. the one song that i cannot go a day without is mayonaise. it is the most well-crafted song i have ever heard. the two guitars playing off each other for the opening of the song, then the heavy distortion that just makes me reflect on the good or bad thing that just happened to me. its a song that makes me lament, and gets my frustrations out through the music. but at the same time thankful for what i have. during this time in my life, this song surpasses my old favorite "everlong" by the foo fighters because of the emotions that are triggered right with the opening notes. there are only a few songs that have ever done that to me, the aforementioned mayonaise and everlong, and the masterpiece "babylon" by david grey. the rest of the album almost follows suit with the emotional balance of mayonaise. everyone knows the songs today, disarm, and cherub rock. its the unknown songs like mayonaise and soma that hold this album miles above any other album created. i hope this album sparks as much emotion as it does for me.
