4.0 out of 5 stars PUMPKINS ON PROZAC!
... as far as atmosphere goes this is the furthest you'll ever get from the Pumpkins' goth-metal escapades that graced the end of their careers.
Summing up the album, the last Pumpkins single 'Untitled' wouldn't be at all out of place on this album - vintage happy Pumpkins style but with distinctly Machina tactics (i.e. the guitar noise).

3.0 out of 5 stars hmmm - trying too hard?
right. the smashing pumpkins were an amazing, and epic band. their brilliance stemmed from each of their song having a particular hook or section to it that was just aurally wonderful. examples of this are Soma, Luna and Hummer on Siamese Dream and Porcelina of the Vast Oceans and many others on Melon Collie.
do not get me wrong, this album is nice. but that's all it...

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 14 Feb. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Mary Star Of The Sea (Audio CD)
Gone are the subtle & lilting melodies
Gone are the heartfelt & inventive lyrics
Gone are the carefully crafted songs that build from silent whispers to crashing climaxes
What we have here is 40 mins of dull strumming with Billy & Paz (who?) singing, nay humming along !
Witness the burn out of Billy Corgan. Simply put there doesn't seem to be a decent tune left in the guy.
Either that or he has been opressed by the other relative unknowns in the band.
I bought the album then saw the band at Shepherds Bush Empire. Frankly the guy looked bored of it all - bit like someone on a date with someone they didn't want to be with.
Jimmy was the only good thing about it.
Zwan was said to be a project. It should've been shelved before it got this far!
Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 9 Jun. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Mary Star Of The Sea (Audio CD)
I've not listened to the whole album yet, but what i've heard so far will appeal to all pumpkins fans. Its the follow up to Mellon Collie that they shoulve made!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not The Pumpkins., 16 Jan. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Mary Star Of The Sea (Audio CD)
If you were hoping to hear an LP that sounded like Billy Corgan's now defunct Smashing Pumpkins, then your going to be dissapointed. The structure of most songs is very repetative and very repetative. Did I say it was repetative? The songs are quite simple and some very catchy "Yeah and Come with me". Some tracks just fail to shine "Lyric, Declarations Of Faith". I guess that most of Corgan's fan base from the Pumpkins' will be the ones checking this out. Its very hit and miss, but worth catching if you idolise the bald headed ego maniac that is Mr Billy Corgan.
