Sounds like: A healthy compromise of Corgan's past and his vision for the future.
- Not only are you getting the rock-solid "Oceania" in its entirety, but a good chunk of Pumpkins classics. The second half of the set is as devoted to well-worn radio staples like "Disarm" and "Tonight, Tonight" as it is to slightly deeper cuts like "X.Y.U." and "Hummer."
- The "new" Pumpkins more than hold their own, effortlessly pulling off "Oceania" while giving new life so the classics as well.
- The visuals are a real treat, especially during "Tonight, Tonight" which recalls the song's iconic music video.
- Billy's skin-tight wrestling shirt gives way to copious amounts of muffin top and coin-slot. Next time, leave the skin-tight outfits to Nicole.
- Billy is clearly phoning it in on the likes of "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" and "Cherub Rock.Read more ›
This is Billy Corgan but, NOT the Smashing Pumpkins music you remember from the 90's.
This is some of the best, well rounded rock played lately and definitely not a lot of percussive rhythm guitars with hardly any lead like most current rock bands try to get by with these days.
You won't be disappointed if you like to rock....
If you don't have a BluRay player go get one!
Only downside is the Bluray not having the audio CD.
The bands performance and in particular, Jeff Schroeder and Mike Byrne really stood out. What a concert! I loved it all.
The production on display here is one of the absolute best in my massive collection. The stage design, quality of video and editing is very impressive. The True HD 5.1 on here is remarkable! Great separation and balance in the mix. All instruments are rendered with stunning fidelity and in particular, the dirty distortion of the guitars just screams out of my speakers with just the right amount of aggression and presence.
I'm a new fan, and this will be in heavy rotation in my player for a while.
