In My Own Words:
I like 'The Simpsons', George Orwell's '1984', Apple Macintosh computers, Fender guitars and the Manic Street Preachers. Everything else is just a waste of my time.

I own every other Smashing Pumpkins album ever released, and I can guarantee you that not one of them is as good as this. First and foremost, this album is, for the most part, *NOT* an alternative rock album. This is a grunge album primarily, and a fantastic one at that. Possibly the best songs on it are "Disarm", "Rocket", "Cherub Rock", "Silverfu**" and "Spaceboy". This stands as one of the greatest albums of all time. Don't listen to pretentious idiots rambling on about the artistic value of Adore; if you don't own a Pumpkins album, buy this, because you won't be disappointed.

First of all, let me just say that so far, this album is easily the best of this year. Had this album been under the name of another band, it would have undoubtedly received five stars, however, under Radiohead's name, it fails to amaze. That's not to say it's not good, however. "The National Anthem" and "Idioteque" are two of my favourite Radiohead tracks. Unfortunately, it doesn't have: a) the fabulous myriad of astonishingly brilliant singles that The Bends had b) the awe-inspiring complexity of OK Computer- an album that works as an album
This is Radiohead's third best album. It's much better than Pablo Honey, and better than all the EPs, but it's not as good as… Read more
