    Tommy Lee's drumming on this is amazing. Chamberlain is a god but so is Tommy.

    IMO, the best song on the album. As much as some fans love to hate anything post-break up, I think they would have "adored" this song had it ended up as the rocker on Adore, and would have been an easy first single on either Adore or Machina. For me, this song could easily slide into either album, although it would make more sense to me in Adore.

    The title of this album explains it's concept completely. And Billy executed perfectly. It truly is a monument to an elegy. It's a shame that the Oceania crew couldn't have made one more album together. Tommy Lee doesn't belong on any Pumpkins album, that's for sure. At any rate, this album is yet another work of genius that fulfills its concept perfectly. And yet another work from Billy that will never be understood or appreciated by the general music fan or critic.

    voice drowns in the instruments, too much reverb effect on the voice here and there... not bad though... the writing is awesome, but the composing lacks that creativeness he once gave us ... Billy can compose wonderful music, but seems to be lost in what he wants US to hear....

    It's very difficult to say something about Pumpkin's new stuff!!!! It's good .. but all songs sounds very similar..

  • dignyochick
    dignyochick 4 years ago +18

    Really good. Not the same as old pumpkins but thats how bands die, doing the same stuff. Ultimately, nostalgia will dictate what we like the most but its up to you to adapt and accept the new stuff for its individual greatness rather than chasing the nostalgia.
    One more thing, bands who stick to their roots are the bands everyone talks about being influenced by and real fans know these bands, but they don't make it very far and aren't very profitable.

    • Daniel Lion

      Nice observation. No, it's not gonna feel like when you first heard and fell in love with Smashing Pumpkins, but the same formula is still there. Let go and be present.

    • Edson Santiago
      Edson Santiago 4 years ago

      Yeah, I agree. You have to adapt. Mr Corgan spent some time trying other sounds (well, he can do it. His band has sold millions of records) and now he's back to save rock'n roll. For sure he's more up to it than Jack White ;-)

    • avedic
      avedic 4 years ago's an _ok_ song. Is it creative? Not really. Is it novel in any way? Nope. It's just a decent song; not terrible or amazing. It's just kinda...._there_. Btw, I'm *_not_* one of those people who still bitch and moan about the breakup. Besides, Corgan has _always_ been the creative force of the Pumpkins. So, I'm 100% cool with new band members. In fact, I *_don't_* want Billy to merely rehash the old glory days. I'm totally cool with him venturing into new sounds & ideas.
      *_BUT..._* that's actually *_why_* I dislike all the new SP music. Not because it's new....but because it's *_NOT_* bold, creative, idiosyncratic, novel, or forward-thinking(all the reasons why I fell in love with the Pumpkins in the first place).
      Btw.....I love everything the Pumpkins ever did. There isn't a single bad album....I even love Adore and Machina...._and_ I even quite like Corgan's solo album. But, this new stuff? It's know....._there_. : /

  • Keith1974
    Keith1974 4 years ago +2 It's so generic and repetitive of what's come before. I know Corgan has a fresh following of teen emo/goth/Hot Topic types, but they're worshipping a re-run.

  • El Codey
    El Codey 4 years ago +2

    Missing chamberlain on drums, and this song sounds only slightly more hard than melodic, those are my only 2 problems. What got me hooked on the Pumpkins was, to quote, their "dream pop", and for me, their melodicism. This being sad, if the entire album is solid like this one song, then give me an hour to listen to this album when it comes out, and I will very much enjoy it, and the songs will definitely grow on me.

    • El Codey
      El Codey 4 years ago

      In other news, anyone a die hard Hendrix fan? If so, I highly recommend acquiring Hear My Music on Vinyl. It is brilliant, and the Valleys of Neptune piano track played by Hendrix is extremely beautiful and haunting!

    • El Codey
      El Codey 4 years ago

      Well, I was extremely dissappointed. I tried really hard to like this album, no such luck. Within about a week of listening, I returned it to the record store. Some of the songs had really crappy sounding synth-pop, and corgans voice did not help at all on those ones(and corgans voice is one the most memorable and awesome when accompanied by a great melody, ex. the chorus from "Today"). Also, the guitar work was not there for me(i wasn't expecting anything from pumpkin glory days, but at least something reminiscant of it, unfortunately "Tiberius" was the only one that even came close to it)and as I said, the album was missing chamberlain. Tommy Lee is one of the greats, but I have a biased appreciation for chamberlain, and therefore was disappointed.

    Sospecho que son tantas las ganas de ver por fin remontar el vuelo a The Smashing Pumpkins, tras sus últimos y fallidos resultados, que uno se muestra ansioso ante su nuevo lanzamiento. A pesar de que el primer tema que conocimos en octubre "Being Beige", ya resultaba decepcionante. El nuevo álbum de los estadounidenses The Smashing Pumpkins busca en palabras del propio Billy Corgan "un "equilibrio entre el pasado y el presente del grupo para dirigirlo tanto al público adulto como al más joven". El músico ya ha iniciado la promoción y estos días ofrece entrevistas a los medios de prensa en Londres. Ha decidido lanzar dos discos por separado con el nuevo material, la primera parte se titula "Monuments to an elegy" y saldrá a la venta el 9 de diciembre. Tendrá una secuela en 2015, bautizada como "Day for night". La decisión de publicar el trabajo en dos períodos en el transcurso de un año viene motivada porque un álbum doble es "difícil de comercializar ya que en el mundo de la música todo es muy efímero", según explica Corgan. "Dos álbumes conllevan mucho trabajo y no quería que todo ese esfuerzo se esfumase en cinco minutos", asegura el cantante de Chicago. convencido de que lanzar los dos álbumes de manera separada fue algo "sensato y de bajo riesgo". Tras 26 años de trayectoria musical -lleva sobre los escenarios desde 1988-, la formación estadounidense es consciente de las dificultades de seguir en la ola del éxito. Corgan comenzó a escribir algunas canciones durante la gira del álbum Oceania (2012), pero el proceso se aceleró cuando el guitarrista, Jeff Schroeder, regresó de Corea para comenzar con las pruebas. Aunque aún no hay decisiones cerradas sobre a qué lugares les llevará la gira de presentación del álbum, parece que España y Latinoamérica estarán entre sus paradas obligadas. El disco dura apenas 40 minutos y lo puedes escuchar íntegramente aquí pinchando en "Monuments to an elegy". Particularmente, siendo generoso, salvo de la quema tres temas: "Dorian", "Anti-Hero" y "Monuments". Hay cosas penosas llenas de artificio como "Run2Me" que recuerdan a la banda sonora de "La historia interminable". Inconcebible.

    Everyone who's complaining about his voice you are aware he's aged right? He can't get his voice like it used to sound. Who cares. I'm just happy he's still making music that's all I care about! It's not the way it use to be because he's moved on with music it ain't psycedlic rock or loud solos anymore. It's a new sound to fit into this generation of music. I personally think every song on monuments is great!

    Ingredients: Billy, a heavy (alternative) guitar melody, good drums, keyboard, Evolved sound mixing, Despair, a powerful chorus, a hint of infinite sadness, simple-profound lyrics and a dash of Mellon Collie...that sounds like the Pumpkins to me! Love that their new songs sound different (nobody wants the same jam) BUT Billy still sounds like the Pumpkins...Billy IS THE PUMPKINS. All you bitching are cynics (who woulda complained either way), simpletons (who don't understand that music and artists dont live in a vacuum) or just plain dont know music. Music (like art) is for those that have the pallet to appreciate it...the rest of you can go watch the Kardarshians and listen to Miley Cryus. Kurt Cobain says: Fuck Off
