Stunning album, probably in my top ten of all time but the remastered version will not play on my CD player. I ordered one and sent it back as thought it faulty.Second one will not play either. I have a large eclectic CD collection and buy new CD's all the time. Every single one plays on my CD player except this one. I own a good quality separates Hi Hi system so its not at fault. No idea why it won't play but if you own a NAD cd player beware. This review is for the remastered version of the album. The original version plays fine and is awesome.5 stars for that one.

For the uninitiated, this is arguably the band's best album to date as well as one of the best albums in musical history. Not fact of course but it is arguable. There are no low points. Granted it does take a while to absorb and on first listen (hard to remember my first time as it was so long ago now) it doesn't particularly make much of an impression. Especially if you take, for example, the opener 'Cherub Rock'. It's a very lumpen, downtuned mediocre track on the first couple of listens. However, keep with it and it opens up to become one of the most inexplicably excellent songs you're ever likely to hear. 'Quiet' is more immediate and definite grunge single material. That said, it is a classic. And then the opening to 'Today' kicks in and you realise that what has come before, genius though it is, cannot compare. You suddenly cannot realise what is happening. Surely songs can't be THIS good?! 'Hummer' is a sleeper hit. After the 3rd or 4th spin it becomes classic material. One of my all-time favourite SP tracks. 'Rocket' is more of a companion track but it's still awesome. And the sublime 'Disarm' does just that.

'Soma' is like an epic battle from beginning to end. 'Geek USA' is a refreshing thrash. 'Mayonnaise' is purest genius (there's a lot of it about here), 'Spaceboy' is an exceptional ballad, 'Silverf@#k' is another nice thrash, 'Sweet sweet' is just that and 'Luna' takes us off tothe realms of uncertainty concerning whether we're going to hear anything quite as good ever again.

It's pretty good.

Had it on cassette years ago and got round to buying it on CD, this album gets a regular airing, especially Rocket and Today!

This amazing album sounds even more amazing with the remastered treatment as you can really tell and hear different things you might not have noticed before, this is really where the pumpkins took off with such songs as today, disarm and cherub rock. You can really hear how layered it is with the remastering and also the bonus disc is a real treat with subtle different takes on songs from pisces iscariot and siamese dream.
the live disc is great as it shows a more confident band in their surroundings and is just an all round blistering performance from the whole band.
