Their latest album has 5 big anthems varying from an epic James Bond-style opener, extremely infectious beautifully-written 'Madness', Queen-Style stadium dance track 'Panic Station', Olympic anthem 'Survival' and the very U2 'Big Freeze'.

Any Pumpkins/Corgan fan needs to get this and the Siamese Dream set.
Amazon is currently the cheapest place to buy.

'Are you willing to risk your lives for whales? - if not you don't belong on this ship".
A veteran of hundreds of battles to save marine wildlife, Captain Watson wages war on the Japanese Whaling Fleet in the Southern Ocean.
Stars of the show (other than the Captain) are ace helicopter pilot Chris Aultman and the two guys (Giles and Ben) who risk… Read more
