5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SINGLE EVER!, 11 Dec 2003
What can you sy about this single? only that its the best single ever! you have the catchy pop of 1979, the jingly pop of the boy, which is one the best songs they've done, taking them them into new musical genres. The best songs by far have to be cherry which is one of the most addictive songs ive ever heard! The main riff is fantastic. Set the ray to jerry is the other keeper on this single, catchy and emotive. Very touching heartfelt lyrics. BUY IT NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE NEW PUMPKINS, 30 Jan 2003
At first glance mary star of the sea does sound very much like the smashing pumpkins work. This is due obviously to the fact that they are written by Billy Corgan. However, Zwan seem to have a more mature 'radio friendly' sound than the pumpkins, and sound less alternative. This album does lack some of the energy of great pumpkins albums such as Siamese Dream. The songs on the album are very good with catchy songs such as 'lyric' and 'settle down.' The instruments themselves seem to be played at higher quality than some of the pumpkins work. The DVD features in the studio material as well as live performances, this is worth getting if just for an incite into some of Zwan's other material.

4.0 out of 5 stars A LIVE ALBUM!?, 16 Dec 2002
Earphoria is the soundtrack to the Vieuphoria home video first released in 1994. This really is quite a good piece of work, it contains some suprising interpretations of the pumpkins songs such as the rock version of Disarm. Indeed in some places the songs are even better than the originals, the instrument playing especially is of a higher quality. However been as it is only a live album it is not worth getting unless you really are a fan, as the hard to find material on this cd doesn't really stand out as the pumpkins best material.
