Hugely underrated album, if alternative hadn't been so commercialized it mightve matured into this work, wow thank you mucho from a huge fan Billy and pumpkins, come to Denver please.
Every bit as good as anything they have done previously. What a colossus of a track. This album is easily in my top 3 pumpkins albums. Keep fighting the good fight Billy. I've loved the ride you've taken me on for the past 23 odd years. Looking forward to the next 20.
este álbum suena al genero stoner rock
Pumpkins fucking rock! better than any of the bullshit played on radio today
Oceania, Mellon Collie and Siamese dream are my top 3 Smashing Pumpkins albums. Oceania is my favorite of all.
I'd replace SD with Machina but same.
newmicrobot my favorite 3 as well, just a different order.
Bom pra caralho !
Quasar is a top 10 Pumpkins song!

Currently my baby girl’s favorite song ... She’s walking all around the house “ride on, ride on!” Making up some words, filling in others. Requesting it when we get in the car... she knows great music!
Best song from them in awhile!
... Keeps getting better and better
This is a solid Billy Corgan solo record. :-)
This is the first and last Smashing Pumpkins album that became part of my collection. Superb album.
Simply great! Much respect to the band! I watched a couple of interviews about the band's history and ended up here. Grateful for the awesome music. Thank you Smashing Pumpkins! I was a fan of the former band and like this one as well.
I've read through many of the comments on all the songs on this album and it has given me a new perspective as a Pumpkins fan who was there when the man in the Zero shirt ruled the world. Even though this album doesn't touch me in the way that the first six did, it is obviously touching a whole lot of people who are younger than me. This album suffers from production issues more than anything i think. Everything is distorted and compressed-sounding. It doesn't sound like a man and his guitar. This song in particular is a song that calls back to the spirit of Billy's sound. That is a great riff. But somehow its power is lost in translation. I don't want a carbon copy of anything from Billy, the Pumpkins never made two albums that were similar, but i long for the production techniques and the rig set up of the 90's. At any rate, it is so refreshing to hear some of the comments on all of these songs from people who are being touched by this music. As a Pumpkin fan from the 90s, I would love to just talk with some of the younger fans about how they are experiencing this new music.
In response to myself, after spending the last few weeks giving this album my undivided attention, I now realize it's another masterpiece. I forget that in the 90s the Smashing Pumpkins literally had an unlimited studio budget. What's another half a million when you know a record is gonna produce hundreds of millions in profit? Nothing. Now Billy is doing this on his own with a much smaller budget and in a world that refuses to purchase albums. At any rate, this music has definitely touched me as much as any he ever made at this point. Algorithm subverted.
This song and album grows on you. When I first listened to this album, I thought it sucked. But after listening to this album a few more times, it's just as great as their older stuff.
This is a song of enormous spiritual power. Gish was about spiritual ascension and this is the point of articulation Billy has now got to. Please don't worry about the mix; there is a higher level of will being expressed here. Service to a higher power as ultimate service of yourself. Yod He Vau He Om!
Guy Mankowski what are you talking about? Good grief.
Soooo on point brother
It's loud but man is that riff complete shit
No memorable riffs/hooks on this album (nor anything since Zeitgeist, for that matter) - utterly forgettable ... I want old Billy back ...
Kieren Moore ur drunk
i love all the reviews by :Arm Chair Pilots" go fuck your self
The problem with this album was that it needed more hard-hitting tracks like this. The first two songs are absolutely brilliant, but then it takes a sharp turn towards the mellow and boring with too much synthesizer in the mix. The Pumpkins are best when they're cranking out crazy shit like Silverfuck or Tristessa.
kimchipower I disagree. I lean towards their melodic stuff. There was probably more melodic stuff on Meloncolly anyway...
This is my first time listening to this. Pretty decent.
Mike Byrne is one hell of a beast. Right on!
I really like this song, alot of energy and gets me excited. I particularly like part 330-421. sounds like a universal echoing reaching the listener. proud to have them still around, regardless of their critics, I hope the pumpkins keep making good rock n roll.
Fuels my adrenaline.
billy corgan is a musical genius
@Floppy Rodrigo check out Zackary k Hubbard have group vids or blog he is a author too. Dave and Courtney had things to gain.
Billy is lightyears better than Kurt, though.
+boogerbutt There is something wrong with his mind. I worry about him. I think he might have been an accomplice to Kurt Cobain's murder.
Don't get why people don't like this album
It insists upon itself
When Zeitgeist came out, there were more songs I liked than did'nt like on the album.Whereas with Oceania, there were more songs I did'nt like than there were songs I did like on the album.I was excited about this album when it came out, because it just felt different. It seemed like this album was in the same position that MACHINA was in in the sense that it was a return to what fans liked in a Pumpkins record. The albums that had come between Zeitgeist and Oceania were not what Pumpkins music should be.Since Zeitgeist, however, I've kept my distance from the new stuff, but The Smashing Pumpkins are still my favorite band.
I love this album. Bought it when it first came out and still like it to this day. Doesn't matter what people think -- what do you think?
I'm guessing the reason people don't like this album is because the music's too poppy, the drums are'nt worthy of what's redeemable from what's good about the album or the music itself. The new Pumpkins is a deluted shadow of the past. That being said, I liked only 4-5 songs off tjis album and nothing after MACHINA & MACHINA II was good or strong material. But, this is far better than what they've come out with in recent years. With Zeightgeist and Oceania, I pick my favorites or ones I think have potential. I've been a big fan since 1993, and for to say a song or an album of the Pumpkins isn't good, or sucks, is a big deal for me. I personally liked this one, though. Even thougit has its flaws and weak points. I give it a B-/C
Son muy mundanos
"God, right on."
Man so much hate on them. Just appreciate the music or leave.
Vocals are too high in the mix. Butch Vig did the proper thing and made the guitars the main thing. Much more understated.
+Simon H Corgans vocal have been too polished and now they stand out like a sore thumb....i still dig the guitar tone....fucking beautiful
Maybe that's what bugs me with the production on his albums since Zeitgeist? The vocals sound like they're "detached".
im goiing to pull that thing out of the ground and shove it into my wifes ass
@RayMania09 Right on.
Can anyone give me the 4 chord sequence at 1:57 please?
D, Bb, F, G
Z, Q, Bamtan Symbol, Q#. As you've probably gueseed, I don't actually know the chord-sequence and decided to be an idiot instead.
Cherub Rock in the key of D
Surprisingly good. I haven't really listened to any new SP since mid 2000's or so. I know Billy's the only remaining original member, but it sounds like he still knows what kind of music he wants to make.
I'am the one, against two!
Best track on the album with "Panopticon"... two masterpieces.
Firstly, I do agree that those two are masterpieces. But Oceania is meant to be experienced as an album. It takes you on a musical journey. Its probably the last time Billy is gonna set out to make an album that's designed to be an "album" unfortunately, due to the fact that no one will buy them or even listen to them anymore. Its get me to the chorus, get me to the bridge culture. Monuments is Billy's response to that, and its a masterpiece itself in what it was designed to do, but it wasn't designed by Billy to be an "album" experience. If you understand the title of the record it explains itself thoroughly. Oceania is a record that requires several listens before you begin to understand how powerful it truly is as an album. Imo.
joker86CJ Pinwheels was my favorite
joker86CJ just had that one 🔂 then to this one 💘
I LOVE Smashing Pumpkins and a friend of mine told me this album was actually really good. I have to say, I'm just not seeing it... I can't really put my finger on it, but I just don't like it...
This is actual rock and roll from SP!! The drummer is a Billy Chamberlain rip off, but he's still fantastic!
Sorry i think the kid has a totally different style from jimmy. Listen to quasar. Jimmy never did anything like this.
It's Winnie Cambrian. Hello.
I like him better than Tommy Lee.
@Scott GrantIt's not.
Billy loved Jimmy Chamberlin but he has such horrible drug issues it ruined his career and made it impossible to count on him. Jimmy is the only one Billy actually saw as his equal from the original band. Billy is the actual one that played most of the guitar and bass on the albums, not D'Arcy and Iha-they even admitted it as so. Can't fault Billy from not being able to find some one as good because they are VERY hard to come by.
Oww my head hurts... quick! reach for the Soma...
The way this builds up and sucks you into the album reminds me of Cherub Rock. Wow.
This is my first listen. Damn right.
@Viktor VonDoom - I agree with you. Too much editing, his voice is louder than the instruments. I just really can't get into new Pumpkins(post Adore & Machina).
o'meglio è billy corgan che si prende sempre belle bassiste per suonare con lui...
tfw corgans singing were the worst parts of the song
Bad mix. Drums need to be louder and have a bigger sound. And the guitar aren't powerful enough. Needs more bass also.
The drums never were loud on any SP album
play the song on your hi-fi instead of your shitty laptop then and then turn it up full
@Alwaysbaggyjeansfolky poop thats just the best thing i have ever heard
not just that..it need that SNARE sound that jimmy had :'(
i love this album, i think is more "like back to beginning" of SP to me, but i like the heavy sound too.
Angel owl reminds me of the nightHolds my actions to the flameCasting shadows in the sandFlip me over, time is running outwaves are getting driershores are getting bolderdarkness is getting colderThe sun is just a memoryBlood of mercury in my vainsSurgery my fire, smoke my blurry mirrorsCan't see what is in front of meCan't feel what I left behindOnly can be right nowThe final raising of a dead man called "I am"A crushing memory called "never" reaches out to meTelling a sweet story of will
Album sounds too clean for a SP album to me.
Too clean for a SP album? When were they ever rough in the studio? Live, they were rarely rough apart from Billy's dicking around on vocals 93-95ish. Production-wise and on the level of songwriting, this is more like Gish than anything else.
that's why it's good! hate it when you get a crappy studio recording
Amazing album! I hope they come back to Milwaukee soon :)
Billy Corgan, The God of Octaves!
to thisisAB and Fernando Ramires- I think Michael Mitchell's comment was sarcasm...
Holy shit. I haven't really loved a Smashing Pumpkins album since Mellon Collie, although Adore was pretty cool and I'll probably buy it eventually. But in the first minute of this album, I have to say it's fucking boss. I mean holy balls. That is some decent sound right there.
My exact thoughts. That opening bass riff sucked me into the wormhole that is Oceania. Lots of amazing melodies, a perfect ode to what made me like the band in the first place. Ride on!
Very underrated album.
My teenage music. Best music in the 90´s with Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Nirvana, etc.
I would say at least 30% of the pumpkins songs is acoustic (billy + guitar), 15% is with a drum machine. Jimmy is a monster indeed, but the band became famous because of Billy Corgan. Did Jimmy's solo album become a hit? Did his side projects (Last Hard Man / Skysaw) became a hit?
Billy's solo/side projects were shit, too . The Smashing Pumpkins became famous thanks to the Smashing Pumpkins, unfortunately without each other these guys don't have anything interesting to offer.
This song takes me back to the early Pumpkins!!! Love it!!!
Billy.... You are awesome man!
billy corgan do a great job he is the only .........
yup yup and that's why no one cares about the Pumpkins anymore
Yeah sure, the drummer made the band big. I mean, Billy did write and compose nearly 100% of their songs throughout their entire career and helped produce on most of their albums, but yeah, Jimmy is why they got famous
Honestly the drumming isn't bad but feels kinda weak (lacks power) and man Jimmy though like you can't compare "new" Pumpkins recordings to the guy who is the reason they made it big
The Quasar live version it's simply AWESOME (sorry for my poor english)
The new drummer is awesome, young and full of talent.
...also mixed with songs from other albums. Not bad. It's the all-Corgan experience lol.
This sounds like a song on Zeitgeist.
Mellon collie and infinite sadness SUCKED BALLS
Now I feel even worse lol :(
Especially when you think how he joined the band when he was 19. That's three years away for me and I can't even bring myself to walk for an hour a day.
Song's awesome though...don't get me wrong lol. I just miss oldschool, not giving a fuck Billy!
Dude.....Billy Corgan's singing has gotten better.....and that sucks. Aging blows. I'm voting for whoever bans it! :P
Love him for his drumming. Hate him for being only 23 and making me feel like a massive underachiever.
It doesn't "suck balls" it's just different, the pumpkins were always about pushing the limits (in the 90s). Billy Corgan has no interest in reproducing stuff they have already done. Even if it was damn great as the 90s! :) I can still appreciate they are going in a different direction now. Either way I still have a massive amount of respect for Billy for all of the amazing song writing he has done over the years, and yes this does include Quasar.
man, he can write guitar licks
And that's a whole lotta love!
Billy Corgan has pretty much stuck to his own peculiar aesthetics over the years, a maverick of sorts, and with some debatable material over the last 10 years He comes back with this great pumpkins Album. A true grower over time!
I'm grew up listening to SP I got the Mellon collie and infinite sadness double disc set and I was at first wtf is this? But I listened to the whole thing and it was magical and emotionl (from soft beautiful songs to heavy fast ones), But something's missing from Billy's new material. It's got a couple good songs but the rest sounds WEAK! I don't know if it's because of the new band members but overall the new stuff SUCKS BALLS!
This absolutely rocks. Seriously. And live it simply kicked ass.
Breakout was a flange. This is a phase. Flange has more of that airplane jet sound.
You're right about Mike on drum. Saw them at Glastonbury and they were a tight unit. The crowd came hoping for the best....and got it. These cats can play and are carrying on the legacy, and more importantly, it looks like they're having fun out there. It's infectious cos I feel like a young fan again. Hahaha
Disproval is more important than trying to prove everything.
though I will admit that Jimmy had more of a jazzy feel, this kid's more a rock drummer.
As a drummer, I think this kid is as close to Jimmy as it gets in a new SP drummer. His rolls are impeccable. The intro to this song is a lot harder than it sounds.
Wish the other songs on the album had at least the heaviness of this, if not a thousand times more.
This guy is a genius, no doubt! God ride on!!!!!!!
Breakout by Foo FightersThe guitar effect is called Phaser
Pretty good replacement...but yeah, Jimmy is one of the best rock drummers. More feel...less robotic than this guy; though this guy rocks, too.
The Pumpkins were my favorite band in the 90's, but this is just not the same without Jimmy, he made all the difference. It just feels like it's "almost there" but then falls short, know what I mean?
Didn't like this album at all , but now it's kind of growing on me !
god, a lovely comment for something we have no idea of . if there is a god can i please meet her. the best childrens story since that crap show the other day. there was a lion and a zebra. thanks human mind for making shit up so we can feel better.
Billy has been reported saying that we can expect the next album to be harder. :)
only song I like on the album. worth the price though
