I am a Huge Pumpkins fan so when this came out, I immediately preordered. Love that it was cheaper than the pumpkins website on amazon, plus $.99 in free mp3s, and free shipping, love me some prime.
Ok, so the boxes are sturdy cardboard boxes. Inside are some cool pics of the pumpkins from that time. There is a great color booklet in which Billy talks about each song and song lyrics. So happy to have this included in the set. There are 3 disc which you can see. Great remastering of Gish, and love getting demos and previously unreleased stuff. Disc 3 of the show is so cool, quality of the show is good.
Ok, so for those who say ... what $24 bucks Billy is just making himself rich, do the Math. 2 Discs of songs, including remastered original gish songs, and a show DVD. This is a great deal.
Great collection for a pumpkins fan. So much better than the music that is out today. These discs take me back to my high school days!
Two other albums have approached Dark Side, in my mind. Nothing's Shocking by Jane's Addiction and Gish by Smashing Pumpkins.
Good stuff. Great for work-out or running, too.
However, when taken as it is -- an album showing the band in it's earliest stages -- _Gish_ is an excellent, highly enjoyable album. It is hardly a disappointing album -- far, far from it. The Pumpkins' amalgamation of heavy (but melodic and dreamy) rockers and dreamy, atmospheric, psychedelic-tinged mellow tracks appear here, giving ample proof that the Pumpkins didn't necessarily change their sound over the years, but rather refined it. "I Am One" and "Siva" open up the album on hard-driving notes. The former could be heard on alternative rock radio stations, even to this day. Do you think that because The Smashing Pumpkins made hard-rockers, they used nothing more than simple power chords? Well, both these tracks feature arpeggiated chords that are beyond simple.
The hard-driving rockers are interrupted for what are possibly the most ethereal, wispy, mood-inducing six minutes on the album: "Rhinoceros" is such a heavenly beauty, and is without a doubt, my favorite track on this album.Read more ›
The many guitar tones are interesting and express the artistry well. All the playing -- drumming, bass and especially the guitar jamming -- is terrific and in sync. Definitely one of the 100 best albums of all time. Just listen to it.
The bonus DVD concert is rather bad, so do not buy this for the DVD. If you are looking for an early DVD concert, consider Smashing Pumpkins: Vieuphoria Live from 1994 or even theSiamese Dream Deluxe Edition bonus DVD. But definitely listen to the masterpiece Gish!
