This review is from: Machina / The Machines Of God (Audio CD)
This is the Pumkins' latest album following the so called 'flop' of Adore and I can tell you this is one album that cannot be criticised by even the most cynical of people.
A lot has been expected from the Pumpkins after their massive success with Siamese Dreams and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. This is especially so because many were dissapointed by Adore's apparent lack of depth. The Pumpkins are the victims of their own success by producing such works of art (Siamese Dreams, MCIS) making it very difficult to improve on perfection.
This album in a word is glorious. Profound songs built on a foundation of prodigious drumming, deep lyrics and swirling sounds that you would never imagine could be produced by a guitar, will capture you in their involving beat. This is new, this is different, this is one album to get!
