4.0 out of 5 stars Great! But... November 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of course, the Pumpkins have given all of these songs out for free on the internet, but this may be worth it for the hard-core fan.

First of all, the boxed set contains a CD of the songs, that's pretty straightforward. The songs are excellent, but you can have a listen for yourself online to make sure its your thing.

The package also contains a vinyl record with the five songs on it. Unlike the vinyl in the first Teargarden EP, this is a relatively high quality pressing. The pictures printed on either side are beautiful, and for me, this thing plays like a champ. The sound is terrific, this record isn't just a pretty picture.

Overall, its well worth it for the uber-fan/collector, for anyone else, just get the songs from the Smashing Pumpkins website when they come out. It's free you know.

3.0 out of 5 stars A step in the right direction December 1, 2010
By Devan
Format:Audio CD
As a longtime Pumpkins fan, I've always embraced the material as it arrived judged it accordingly after a few listens. Fortunately, the ambitious "Teargarden" project has given fans a chance to absorb the merits and faults of each song long before they are sold as a cohesive unit, or in this case, a series of cohesive units.

Vol. II is obviously a different animal from Vol. I; the latter sounded like a (barebones) outfit finding its voice again, and the results were obviously mixed. However, the songs on this EP showcase a sound that's becoming more dynamic and adventurous. In my opinion, "Tom Tom" is the best track on this EP because it comes the closest to capturing the spirit of the 90's without rehashing it. Also, it's the best track lyrically, which brings me to justify the three star rating. As good as this EP is in terms of sound, it's still struggling in the lyrics department. Anyone who's appreciated at least one Pumpkins album (even the "American Gothic" EP) will know that Billy Corgan crafts strong, thoughtful lyrics for each of his songs. Lately though, his songwriting skills (at least during the time these particular songs were made) have taken a backseat to his multi-tasking in the studio. I can't take anymore "La la las", "Sha la las" or "Ohs", and yes, they crop up frequently on this EP. The words are painfully simple for someone of Corgan's caliber, and as a result, songs like "Freak" are reduced from dynamic rock anthems to half-baked political rants that wouldn't even make the cut on "Zeitgeist".

Fortunately, this EP is the second of 11 forthcoming releases, and with two more members added to the Pumpkins roster, it's probable that the sound (and lyrics) will improve tenfold by the release of the third EP. All-in-all though, this release is definitely a step in the right direction and signals greater things to come. Be sure to listen to the songs via their official website before making your purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Billy Got it right this time November 26, 2010
By Scum1
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok so on this second of the limited sets they really delivered. I'll forgive Billy for that awful vinyl in the first box. The songs are great of course if you like the Smashing Pumpkins. The box itself is really nice looking and good quality. The Vinyl is simply stunning the images on the front and the back sides are both very cool to look at. It is a heavy vinyl with a nice quality gloss image on it. The cd is in a cardboard sleeve but even it has a nice and interesting image on it. All the little details were addressed this time. If you are a big fan and a collector then you need to buy this. I hope Billy continues to keep the future releases with just as much quality. I will have no problem buying them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars get it December 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i have been following this band since i was 13. im glad that they continue to make music. im not one of those douch's that cant let go of the old line up. i understand that music and all art is an exploration. i can say i really love three of the four tunes that are on therelease of this album. but im over joyed at the nugget this band leaves its real fans everytime they throw in somethin extra cool. the cd comes with a 12 inch vinal with a extra song that isnt released on the website or the cd. with the other 4 songs on the flip side. its covered in geourgeous graphics. i would have paid way more than what i did for it. the packaging isnt given justice on the computer screen. im glad and proud to say this is my favorite band and as usual ill be seeing them every time they come to my home town till i get old and grey, then my grandchildren will still be pushing my wheelchair to see reverand billy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Solstice Bare August 3, 2011
By rRay
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although I already own the music, thanks to the Pumpkins web site and great music it is. I was really suprised at the quality of the packaged Solstice Bare I purchased from Amazon. Everything from the box to the vinyl picture disc Just reek of quality almost completely gone from the record industry. My only complaint is I should have bought two. Kept one unopened
I suspect the value of this will go up as time passes. Thx to the Pumpkins and to Amazon. Ray G.
P.S. I can't find songs for a a Sailor Help???!!!???

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the vinyl days March 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Indeed an Kaleidoscyscope, ofcourse the score is great and renewed. But what's more, it's back to the old vinyl days when the artists had eye for the music. Yes I said eye, the musiclover sitting on the floor near the recordplayer. Album in hand, enjoying the music and art by ear and eye.
Yes you can download the music for free on the Pumpkins website. No you won't enjoy the artwork. All I'm saying is; buy the album or actually the complete series. And you'll support the completion of something that will be remembered for a long time, if not forever, in the art of music.
