Decent List, Some Missing,
This review is from: The Smashing Pumpkins - Greatest Hits - Rotten Apples (Audio CD)
Rotten Apples does exactly what it's supposed to do, it lists the Smashing Pumpkins most notable hit songs. Most of the best are here, including Tonight Tonight, Disarm and 1979, but it's some of the better album songs, such as Mayonaise, Thru The Eyes of Ruby and some of the gems on Machina 2 that we miss here. I'm gonna be one of those people that lists a more appropriate tracklisting here, which is a composite of all albums, many reviews and my own personal opinions. It is a 2 CD, 30 track effort and I have made it myself and find it great.
1. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
2. Tonight Tonight
3. Glass' Theme (Machina 2)
5. The Everlasting Gaze
9. The End Is The Beginning Is The End
14. Le Deux Machina (Machina 2)
1. Cherub Rock
2. Bullet With Butterfly Wings
5. Thru The Eyes of Ruby
8. Here Is No Why
10. Stand Inside Your Love
11. Where Boys Fear To Tread
14. Ava Adore
15. Farewell and Goodnight
Obviously not chronological, but much more comprehensive and encapsulating than the original.
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is by far their greatest album, and my compilation reflects that, though the solid nature of the Siamese Dream songs is also impressive.
Hope this is of help to those thinking of buying this CD or making their own alternative track listing.
