This review is from: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (Audio CD)
This album works very well as the two CD package that it is. Simply because the first CD works as a wonderful and well crafted rock album, filled with grungey moments of excellence such as Zero, Bullet... and Love and beautiful epics like Tonight Tonight, Porcelina and To Forgive, plus the pure rock of Muzzle and Jellybelly. This is the incentive for buying MCIS. What is truly masterful is the second CD. Without the first CD which due to its natural charm sells the second as a matter of course, no one would bother with it except hard-core music lovers. As it stands, many people have found out that with a bit of listening, the likes of Thru The Eyes Of Ruby, Stumbeline and Thirty Three grab you and take hold of your speakers, not allowing you to put CD one on ever again. This of course means that you can listen to the gorgeous 1979 all the time until you die. Which is no bad thing.
