Reminds me of 99 Floors from their residency at the Fillmore.
Any yahoos listening DEC 2018 ?
Martin Bradley would February 2019 do? ;)
So fantastic, Oceania is a great album, one of their best, an Odyssey. This song is so inspiring!
Pumpkins fan from the beginning, and I think this (album) is as close to sounding like the OG Pumpkins as anything that Billy has attempted since the break up. Pinwheels is definitely a song I'd confidently throw into a Pumpkins mix. To me, it's not a song that would have felt "off" if it were somewhere on Mellon Collie. Certainly not as off as Cupid de Locke. Hehe...to be clear, I actually love Cupid de Locke. I appreciate it for the variety that it brought to the table, and I think Pinwheels would have fit right in.
Its kind of hard to listen to this song because its incredibly overwhelming and beautiful it fills me with all sorts of different emotions sad, and happy. Its pretty phenomenal
Mother moon Mistress of the sun, say I got you, I got you Sister soul Lover of the tune, sing! I got you, I got you, I got you Floating away I thing I'll stay as refused Floating away I thing I'll stay blue-black Floating away I thing I'll change next to you Finding a way to make the loss seem new 'Cause you don't deserve me But I deserve you Mother moon Mistress of the sun, say I got you, I got you Sister soul Lover of the tune, sing! I got you I got you Mother moon Mistress of the sun, say I got you, I got you, oh I've got you I got you, I got you mother moon Floating away I thing I'll stay as refused Finding a way to make the loss seem now Floating away I thing I'll change next to you Finding a way to make the loss seem new 'Cause you don't deserve me But I deserve you Flies for the may queen But life for the prince If nobody wins Then what get's lost? If I've got you
God I love this song.
song starts around 1:27
We're getting married to this next year
This album was a bit ahead of its time... to me ....it has fully " marinated"... this album would win a Grammy if it was released now... in 2017
Agree it gets better with every listen, still. But Billy Corgan nor his band will ever receive a Grammy under any circumstances at this point. He has never gotten anywhere near the credit that he deserves as an artist. If he had Mellon Collie would be in the top five of every "greatest albums of all time" list that gets printed. However, now he has been labeled with the label that makes him less than human in the eyes of all the established media, musical and otherwise. A Trump supporter. Darcy certainly got her payback with that little remark. Its not actually based on anything he has actually said, though one could infer that he doesn't align with the leftist media's talking points, he hasn't came close to being a "supporter" of Trump in reality. If he had been labeled a satan worshipping pedophile who wondered around his house each morning in a dress while drinking the blood of infants that he had just sacrificed with his bare hands he would be fine. In fact, that would probably assure him of multiple Grammies. But not with the "Trump supporter" label. To top it off, he committed another unpardonable sin by exercising his free speech and appearing on Infowars. What he actually said while there doesn't matter, just making an appearance there is enough to completely end the career of any musician who didn't already have 25 years worth of fans. This album certainly does marinate its way into your soul though, doesn't it.
i love this album

Just saw this song performed live...."In Plainsong" tour. Amazing!
Oceania is a masterpiece! Fans and critics that bash the more recent Pumpkins are just bandwagon/casual fans. The core audience like me gets what Corgan is doing. I'm not listening to songs like this one and going "OK if this doesn't sound or make me feel like Zero or Disarm did then it sucks" No. That is not a good way to judge it. Because its a different fucking song, a different feeling, different time and place. Its equivalent to me asking someone to behave as they did at a different time whether it be months years ago. To behave and be the same exact person is an impossibility. Some people that you knew then are dead now. Different people are in your day to day life and same with experiences. Music is a time capsule. If fans understood this fact maybe they'd enjoy the music more.
+Megafayce basically what he said, w/e I like it.
Sadly in todays music world if a band released an album like this nobody would ever hear it because nobody in the industry would help promote it even in the slightest. As good as this album is the only reason those who heard it did was because it had the Smashing Pumpkins name attached to it.
Exactly! I posted my other comment just now before reading yours but you're bang on.
haha! I love how you suggest ina round about way that the core fanbase will love anything regardless. Basically calling them sheep. I loved this album because it's good not because I've been a Pumpkins fan from the begining. Reality is not everyone will like this and if someone has been a fan for years and even a hardcore fan if they don't like this that doesnt automatically make them a casual fan. It's hilarious to me how people like yourself find ways to make being a fan some fucked up competetion.
If a new band released an album this good they would be hailed as the "Saviors of Rock & Roll". Billy will never get the credit he is due until after he is gone. Which is heartbreaking.
definitely the closest he has gotten to a great album since the 90's
I put zwan an the unreleased zwan as my fave an imo most closest to the oldschool material...it broke my heart when they broke up. Love this album an if all goes wrong dvd
My biggest problem with monuments is that it feels so disjointed and as if each song, while good in their own way, just doesn't have that lasting appeal and effect. One and all is definitely the best track and on its own, one of his better songs in a long time, but the rest of the album is a tad boring for my personal tastes.
+vinnykster Can't say I agree with you about monuments. But I absolutely love Oceania.
Zeitgeist, Teargarden, Glow/Superchrist, Monuments are all money albums right up there with 90's. It's a matter of listening to it with an open mind and without living in the past. I would take any of these more recent Pumpkin's song collections with me to a desert island.
I hated this song when i first listened to it; now i love it. Things are weird.
i know ayyyy
+vinnykster Exactly what I was thinking. The track Oceania on this album is a testament to this.
That's why SP new stuff is great. It grows on the listener because it's not pop garbage. Corgan has a ton of things going on in his songs so it takes time for the listener to catch up to that.
+Eric Upperman I couldn't agree more. This whole album was that for me. Now I love it!
Never had a listen to any new Pumpkins stuff until now although I love their old stuff I have to say its all great! especially this album
Very similar to Ma Belle, which I prefer.
I think I'll change...Next to you.
Pumpkins. Helped me through life.
Im in a mayor depression by now, this song has enlighten me...
I love this album. Haven't smiled so much listening to a Pumpkins/Corgan album since Mellon Collie.
mikeisagodd2012 no you
If nobody wins then what gets lost if I've got you?
YES! YES! I love this !
Amazing song. SP for ever
YOLOSWAGYOLOSWAG YMCMB. (kidding)
it really pisses me off that some hardcore SP fans don't like this album just because its different. those same people would've hated houses of the holy back in the day because its a bit of an experiment.
My favorite Zeppelin record
I really like this one. Oceania was the best album they've put out since the 90s, I'm glad to see Billy got back into a legit sound for the Smashing Pumpkins name.
That's Nicole Fiorentino singing. She's the bass player. Jeff Schroeder told Billy they shouldn't bring in any extra musicians, to keep it tight with just the 4 of them. I like the result. But wouldn't rule out any experimentation in the future...
Me too. It has become one of my favorite songs.
xro1983 obviously you know absolutely nothing about music or Billy Corgan. Let's keep expecting them to remake Siamese Dream over and over and over again. You probably thought Coda or Physical Graffiti was garbage as well.
What is this FUCKING GARBAGE?!? This is NOT SP! I want SP back NOW!!,,,,,
Say what fanboy??
You can do it. Every time.
Like the acoustic breaks, but those synth sounds I've heard on every other song made in the last 5 years.
WHO 'baba o' riley' influence? Nice song btw.. ;)
I thought the exact same :3
Didn't think I was gonna like this song at first, but it's really grown on me. :)
Man I swear this has a The Who feel to it..
It sounds like a very raw MCIS track. That this is like 60% of a fully produced MCIS track.
the best song in this album! love it!
So beautiful it makes you cry! Can't wait to see them again in July!
pure genius, love this song, love every song smashing pumpkins has made.
Everything Billy does is art. He never went away. Music for the soul. Music that keeps you alive. Music for the pre-Singularity.
So tender. Love it.
The Rolling Stones write their music collectively (mostly Richards and Jager), but they all contribute... Smashing Pumpkins music has always been written by Corgan; that's the difference.
Well that's just his opinion.
billy is the pumpkins. iha and wretzky were nothing more than stage presence. that counts for something iguess but if they were still togther this album wouldn't sound very different at all.
Really great song, love it, amazing, makes me cry of happyness, i dont know, its so epic, thanks BC :)
"From boy with rockets in his head to man with shining mind"(Bill Nelson) Nice to see BC aging well ; would love to hear some instrumentals....
He never can be though: this is Billy Corgan with a fresh group of musicians. I suppose he has the (legal) right to call it "Smashing Pumpkins", but the Rolling Stones maintained its member list. Corgan wasn't able to do that.
Expanding your horizons is a great thing. Here I am, giving the album a shot and am blown away especially from this song. And I'm aware a lot of people are stuck in the original Iha/Wretzky lineup and look at nostalgia with rose tinted memories, hell I do that to, but Billy's moved on and I hope for more Pumpkin albums in the future. He better be my generation's Rolling Stones, walking on stage with a walker and all. And this is coming from a Gish ere fanboy such as myself
It's scary how this song touched me today. I'm amazed. Thanks
It sounds like Billy finally found his muse from the Saimese Dream-Mellon Collie era again. This is a beautiful track and would fit nicely on either of those CD's. This song gives me the feeling of wistfully looking back on your youth in a video with all the happy, sad, and bittersweet emotions wash all over you at once, both wide eyed innocent and regretful at the same time...touching stuff.
The song began in my mind, Pre-0:00
To each their own I guess. It's a solid album but, I certainly wouldn't give it best of 2012. It is an opinion on both our parts certainly. :) I can't stop listening to the new Big Wreck album myself. It rawks!
at first i didnt like it now it speaks to me, this song is so beautiful, cant wait to hear it live
Do you like Pale Horse? For some reason I can't get into it, but I pretty much love everything else. I've only had the album for a few days though.
Cmonkey1980 Pale horse was my favorite on the album.
This kicks ass.
Intro reminds me of Baba O'Riley by The Who. Love this album though.
This song intro is in a Major key, but drop it to a Minor and it's the fuckin' "Halloween" theme. Michael Myers is Coming!
every second of this song transports me to another world
no doubt that this track should have started at 1:30. I usually love SP intros yet this one is empty and, imho, pointless in context. Even SP lovers (like me) are allowed to speak up sometimes? XxxX
The beginning reminds of (500) Days of Summer.
ke chingon tema pff me trasporta perroncicimooooooooooooo felizidades ala banda the smashing pumpkins
the reminds me of something by the Replacements, love it
One of the only Albums i think I have listened from start to finish and not skipped a single song.
Man I love this song; it's so beautiful!
I love this tune. Makes me feel so... happy (:
I agree. I've listened to it continuously since it came out. Usually I tire of an album after about a month. Not this one. This one really delivers.It is Billy's White Album, IMHO.
its like a cross between "pinball wizzard" and elbows "lippy kids" great album great song
i got youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
This song takes you out into a place completely unknown due to its eccentricity with all the alien-wave-like-sounding noises and dynamic strumming. This explains how it can be seen as space rock; it really pulls you out there.
Seriously, he needs to get those female back up singers in more songs. I think the band would be that much better with a few other voices along.
Such beauty, how does he do it? Genius.
An artist has to grow musically...Billy went from young kid with great talent, too mature man with great genius!
Reminds me of a cross between "Teenage Wasteland" by The Who and "Lippy Kids" by Elbow, beautiful stuff
This is solid proof that Corgan really knows how to put a song together.
oh boy, its like owl city and daisy...its very unique....I wonder if you or he feels that the foil album is like alice in wonderland...whats this the secret of nimh..no no.
Let the Celestials bless you, Billy Corgan! Thank you!!
this is like a mayonaise from 2012. best song from the album!
This is a true album. You have to listen to the whole thing to absorb all the songs in context properly.You got me KO. I'm sorry... can you forgiuve me? I made a mistake, LOL!Fucking WOW.Man, the world is getting bacj iunto shape!Shall buy album now. This song made my mind up.Oh thanx... fuck me! Sam Van Halen instead.There's a sticker saying to wath for a fall tour. Billy's mentioned the tour. It featured some ne
unbelievable......... Im sorry SP... can you forgive me? can i please listen to you again? i made a mistake lol!
'_' ? ---> ( o.o ) ---> *o* !!!
MAN, THE WORLD IS GETTING BACK INTO SHAPE!
shall buy album now. this song made my mind up.
On the CD itself, there's a sticker saying to watch for a fall tour. Also, in many interviews this year, Billy's mentioned the tour. He wanted the CD to sink in with a lot of people before going on the road with it so the songs are familiar. On the last US tour they did, it featured some new songs and a lot of Gish/Pisces sprinkled with Siamese and MC&IS. He's said he doesn't want to be a traveling juke box so he leaves the songs like 1979 under lock and key.
They're going to be doing a Fall tour this year in the US. Keep your eyes open for the announcement. They're also going to be performing this CD in its entirety and follow the other part of the show with their older stuff. Don't expect songs like tonight,tonight or 1979. He refuses to play the big hits. Google it if you're still curious for more info.
Every track is marvellous!!!!!!
Intro remind me of the Who -Baba O'Riley.
The song begins at 2:11? Whaaa-? The beginning intro is the best part.
I'm going out driving in the middle of the night, just so i can roll down the windows and listen to this as the wind hits my face...
you're nice as cabbages for breakfast
the song begins at 0:00
I uploaded this video and Rico Entertainment took it down even though it was a 1 minute 30 second clip FROM THE WEATHER CHANNEL.
