5.0 out of 5 stars B-sides!!!? (it shows how good 'Siamese Dream' was)
There's nothing quite like Billy Corgan! Here is a man with such song-writing talents that he is able to release 'frail and bedazzled' on a collection of b-sides. Nine times out of ten when a band releases a collection like this between albums the contents are embarrassing, but not in this case. If you aren't won over by the sheer elegant beauty of 'soothe' then, quite...

5.0 out of 5 stars A band who cared about music..., 25 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Pisces Iscariot (Audio CD)
You can't help but complement the pumpkins for the fact that they cared so much about their fans that they always made sure that their B-sides were always as good as most of the songs on their great albums and this is strongly evident of that. Many of the songs featured were made round about Siamese Dream, and as a result, this compilation is in league with the album. I'd point out Whir and Landslide as being the highlights although there really isn't one bad song on this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album. Noticable improvement in quality., 14 Aug. 2012
Apart from being a great album, the box set provides a great insight into the Pumpkins. Complete with notes on each track by Billy, it's an essential and rewarding purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars their greatest work...., 14 Feb. 2003
By A Customer
This is, without a doubt the Pumpkins best release. Siamese Dream does come close, but the quality of these tracks is astonishing. They're b-sides!! but they're just so good. this album rocks in places, such as Frail & Bedazzled, (better than anything off Siamese) Hello Kitty Kat, (stupidly heavy) and especially Starla, (an 11-minute rock fest, with the most awesome guitar solo, and drum beat ever produced). The album can also be quiet, with opener Soothe, and (probably) the album highlight - Whir. Overall, the only weak track is closer, Spaced, which is just a little wierd, and glimpse of what was to come on the bloated and pretentious Mellon Collie. However, Spaced is at the end, so is easily skipped. You must buy this album, NOW!!

This review is from: Pisces Iscariot (Audio CD)
One of the beter albums, from the masters of heartbreak & missery. From the 1990's when music still had a heartbeat. A must for anyone with a broken heart.
