The thing with The Smashing Pumpkins is that wether or not you're a fan or just cruising around, you just know it's THEM. Now, don't get me wrong, the vast majority of grunge and alternative bands were garbage, but a few legitimately great bands were allowed to have immense popularity, and The Smashing Pumpkins were one of the best of 'em. And 'Siamese Dream' a severe classic.

Nothing prepared me, however, or anyone else, for the masterpiece of "Siamese Dream" that awaited in 1993. This is simply beautifully melodic music from the heart. If you haven't heard songs like "Soma," "Mayonaise," "Spaceboy," "Sweet Sweet" and "Luna," then you're missing out on some good stuff. 

Billy Corgan and his band mates specialize in both dreamy atmospherics and razor-sharp moments of hard-hitting guitars. The Pumpkins revel in lullaby effects that often transform to crashing waves of sonic power. Corgan's voice follows suit with the music; one moment he's crooning sugar-coated sweet nothings, and the next moment he's wailing with abandon as if his life depended on it.

The kicker is that, while people wrote them off as depressionists, almost every moment on this album can be compared with euphoric joy. Even in moments of rage, the beauty of the music shines through.

And of course it's all good for SP fans. Always.
