    The way I see it is that every album was consistently beautiful throughout the 90s and then the Millenium hit and they sucked until they made this. Monument to an elegy did nothing for me but I think the latest one is better but not nearly as good as this or any of the '90s stuff but I'm still getting into it.
    It seems that Billy's magic went towards Zwan and his solo album during the 00s. Also, Oglilala is preferable to most of what he did during that time. They're a very special, magical band and it's great to have them back. Yeah, it's like we almost lost him.

    The stars are out tonight
    And what you need of me you've got inside you
    You just take me home, take me home don't fight
    But drive me home the wrong way
    No loss spared
    For losing you ain't right
    You haunt where
    Spirits take their time
    It's time T can't seem to fight
    The stars are out for us
    And what you feel for me rides beside you
    Just take me home, take me home
    Don't fuss
    But drive me home the right way
    We'll uncover there's no other faith but us
    A faith in love unseen
    Trace the face of love unseen
    Don't shadow up what we mean
    Uncover what we're meant to be
    And come unlace your light
    The stars are out tonight

    Groovy drum and bass. I love it. Kinda has the feeling of a serious garage band jam

    How can any Smashing Pumpkins fan not like this? This would fit right on Siamese Dream.

    I love this album, even just for this incredible drummer it's worth to listen it

  • Jonny Ed

    Oceania is really under-appeciated. I absolutely love this album. My favourite thing since Billy rebirthed the band

    • John Rios
      John Rios Year ago +2

      Wholeheartedly agree. This track especially captures the essence of what they've always been. As good as anything he's done.

  • WildSky
    WildSky 3 years ago +5

    possibly my favorite sp album. hard to fathom the experience it takes to write an album like this. its not meandering yet expansive, closest thing to it is a pink floyd album, but I like it more

    • grace matherne
      grace matherne 11 months ago

      you misread my comment lol im saying the specific album siamese dream is better than this one but i personally believe floyd is a better band but pumpkins is amazing too and a personal favorite

    • Leo B
      Leo B Year ago +2

      grace matherne true, pumpkins is far better than pink floyd

    • grace matherne
      grace matherne Year ago

      im sorry... but siamese dream is so much better and i dong think this is anything close to a pink floyd album , noooowhere near it. maybe siamese dream you could argue but i dont think so

    The best song on the record and one of Billy's best. I was a little disappointed with Oceania; I thought there were too many songs that sounded like the kind of music that my massage therapist plays for me. But man did this one really hit home with me. There are at least 4 tracks on the album that I like and this is certainly one of them.

    Production sucks (compression and "loudness wars" are ruining albums) but otherwise this is classic 90s era stuff.

    I really don't understand how this track doesn't have +1 mill plays. Totally underrated!

    I know, right? How dare he have an opinion that isn't yours? How dare he like this band more than you do?

  • MrMidnightDead
    MrMidnightDead 6 years ago

    As a lover of the 90's the last two Pumkins albums have been awesome. As an audio engineer they have made me so fuckin sad. Serious victims of over compression and the loudness wars.

    couldnt agree more with this... the breakdown might have been with more delay and perhaps quieter though lol. other than that this takes me right back to siamese dream summers.

    Michal Kaczmarek 6 years ago

    This song deserves to be a single. Not only is the main riff insane the whole song is very innovative and unique. This proves he's still got it.

  • ouackstrax
    ouackstrax 6 years ago +1

    This makes me think of discovering Siamese Dream in an alternate 1993 universe; If Hummer mated with a Summer-fun pop song (in a good way). This song makes me happy -- not sure if it flows with the album but I don't care. I think it'd do well if it got airplay... I'm not sure why everyone's all over Celestials and One Heart for that role (I cringe every time I hear the lines "Special K" and "101 percent".

    Majestic pumpkins,effortless bliss,the kind billy used to produce in his sleep way back in his god this song takes me back all the way to 1993..all the 90's overdubs n production is here in all its magnifigance n beauty

  • r.d. laing

  • JD Andrews
    JD Andrews 6 years ago

    After about the 20th listen this became my favorite track from Oceania. It sounds very good loud so crank it up. The new album is fan freaking tastaic!!! It has gone beyond what I expected and it only leaves me wanting more, just as soon as I get all these songs tattooed to memory.

  • tessy0504

  • Froylan Ruiz
    Froylan Ruiz 6 years ago

    I absolutely love what Billy has done in this album, he is going back to his old song writing techniques. Particularly in this song, the guitar sounds like it could fit perfectly in Siamese Dream and the drumming sounds like Jimmy's back in the day!

  • Joshua
    Joshua 7 years ago

    You also have to remember Billy ain't twenty any more, hell, he ain't even thirty, he's forty-five. His voice just doesn't sound the same, and that includes his talking too. Nowadays, it's either try to do it perfect, or have it sound terrible. I still think he has one of the best voices ever, no one and I mean no one sounds like him.

  • O5-13 -LDK-
    O5-13 -LDK- 7 years ago

    Over producing has nothing to with how perfect the artist or the producer is trying to get the sound. Billy Corgan is famous for being a perfectionist to an almost overbearing extreme. Over production is completely about how the sound comes across. The best riff in the world either soars or sinks based off of how it is played. While albums like Machina are more stripped down then Siamese, they still come across as more produced, because the riffs on the early albums are played more passionately.

  • Sydney Hernandez
    Sydney Hernandez 7 years ago

    yeah the intro reminded me of Hummer

  • Joshua
    Joshua 7 years ago

    If you don't think good Rock And Roll should have a lot of production than you shouldn't like Gish, Siamese Dream, and Pisces Iscariot. Butch Vig produced the hell out of those albums, if you want raw SP Mellon Collie, Adore, and Machina 2 / The Friends And Enemies Of Modern Music are the ones you should like.

  • basenjiguitar
    basenjiguitar 7 years ago

    amazing,,,,the world need this kind of riffs
    and yes, sounds like the siames dream-piscis iscariot.. but reload .

  • SPFrobber

    maybe my favorite from the album bit that would be such a hard choice

  • willzer808
    willzer808 7 years ago

    Yep. Just like In Utero. In Utero says it all, and is a masterpiece in its own right. This is sounding good all the same

  • O5-13 -LDK-
    O5-13 -LDK- 7 years ago +1

    I've listened to a few songs off this album so far. Overall, what I heard is not bad, but way too clean and over produced in my opinion. This song right here though sounds like it could have been off of Siamese Dream or Pisces Iscariot, just with a little more polish. So far this is the only song off of Oceania that I feel sounds truly like the Pumpkins. The new stuff isn't bad, but lacks the raw edge of Billy's previous works, which holds it back IMO. Good rock should be rough, not polished.

    I rate the whole album. This is one of my favourite songs for sure.. I dislike the last song the most. Wildflower.

  • VisciousPhishes
    VisciousPhishes 7 years ago

    I have been an SP fan since Gish and around '91. I was ready to be over it, I've pretty much hung in there with Billy and everything they've done. The Machinas, Zeitgeist, the stuff in between, I've enjoyed it but I figured the musical journey was over for me. This is not so. Oceania is an amazing album. Songs like this, almost pedestrian in a way, simple and elegant and textured all in one; they are still here.
    Long Live the Mighty SP!

  • pirate360
    pirate360 7 years ago

    The rockers on the new album feel a lot like their Siamese Dream era songs mixed with some really strong 70's/80's rock influences, minus some of the My Bloody Valentine influence.

    Billy doesn't really has lost inspiration but his life is really different now, far more happy, saddeness and other problems have gone (i hope) and intensity in his songs has gone too. Theres is something which is nostaglia, deep sadeness and rage you can't find today. But beleive me Billy is a man i respect a lot for his "oeuvre" ;)

    the intro riff sounds like something STRAIGHT from siamese dream. The melody is a later pumpkins one. This combination is the best of both worlds. This whole album really exceeded everyone's expectations. Pumpkins ride on!
