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.
man , I can just imagine jimmy drumming on this track !
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 The stars are out tonight The stars are out The stars are out tonight The stars are out The stars are out tonight The stars are out The stars are out tonight
Groovy drum and bass. I love it. Kinda has the feeling of a serious garage band jam
Dude, been wanting to hear them for so long... This albums is fucking golg
How can any Smashing Pumpkins fan not like this? This would fit right on Siamese Dream.
I listen to Smashing Pumpkins for the killer guitar tones.
Nice song,almost like a mini hummer.
really nice song,...
Reminds me of their song Plume a little bit during the chorus.
The stars are out tonightAnd what you need of me you've got inside youJust take me home, take me home don't fightBut drive me home the wrong wayNo loss sparedFor losing you ain't rightYou haunt whereSpritis take their timeIt's time I can't seem to fightThe stars are out for usAnd what you feel for me rides beside youJust take me home, take me homeDon't fussBut drive me home the right way
I love this album, even just for this incredible drummer it's worth to listen it
Oceania is really under-appeciated. I absolutely love this album. My favourite thing since Billy rebirthed the band
Wholeheartedly agree. This track especially captures the essence of what they've always been. As good as anything he's done.
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
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
grace matherne true, pumpkins is far better than pink floyd
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
cool riff, kinda like hummer and plume
Absolutely love this album!
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.
God I feel endless ....I love you all :) my little pumpkins !
Oh man Good stuff!
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?
Fuck you xxcrApple999xx, Mellon Collie was Epic..SP at their greatest! This new shit, for the most part, Suck Monkey Sweaty BALLS! Except for a couple songs!
sounds like Marillion with no vocals and no tune !
id say this album is their best behind mellon collie, sheer beauty
Is that Billy playing the solo? Sounds very Satriani-inspired. Good stuff!
This song is pure genius, straight from 1993
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.
The stars are out tonight..
Best album since Machina.
Greatest song of the new album. Sounds like it could fit right on Siamese Dream.
Okay first off guy who rips on talented influential music that comes ever so slightly at ever becoming anything known other than history..what the duck makes you think what style/feel of this guitar solo is over the top?
get outta here
This song has levels...love it
for me they always have one killing head song per CD.This one is one of them ;)
this is so much like their old sound!!! YES!!!!!
This is how he became seedless..
no he isnt, special K the drug has been around long before the cereal and it makes sense in context that it would be ketamine
he could be talking about that diet cereal ... probably is, i think I'm gonna go listen to some Buckethead
intro riff is soooo fucking cool
special K? thats the word you cringe at that? you do know special K is slang for a drug right? ketamine
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.
september 23 in my city ¡¡¡¡ Monterrey Mexico , wwwwwwwwwaaaa ¡¡¡
too bad jimmys gone :( i like mike byrne but its just not the same knowing thats not jimmy
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.
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".
What an amazing album, Pumpkins are back in force :)
Majestic pumpkins,effortless bliss,the kind billy used to produce in his sleep way back in his prime....my 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
agree,a lot of Rocket in here...also parts of The Chimera sound Siamese Dream era,thats a good thing.
If only more songs on this album were like this.
i thought the same until i saw it performed live in perth in july..amazing!! the whole album is great :)
my favourite track from the first time i listened to their album.. and to see them perform it live in Perth this year was an absolute privilege.. thank you SP!!!
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.
my FAVORITE from Oceania... thank you guys!!!
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!
THE STARS ARE OUT TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is a little bit like Rocket too.
This sounds like the good old smashing pumpkins
listen to hummer straight after this, quite similar riffs
instant classic! as soon as I heard the first 5 sec I knew it!
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.
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.
yeah the intro reminded me of Hummer
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.
amazing,,,,the world need this kind of riffsand yes, sounds like the siames dream-piscis iscariot.. but reload .
Turn it all the way up!
i fucking love it
Found it so new and diffrent, but very very proper for the Pumpkins.Billy's stainless.
maybe my favorite from the album bit that would be such a hard choice
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
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.
Lo mejor Smashing Pumpkins siempre!! siempre!!
Anyone else having this song show up as "Inklees" in their media player? I ripped from their cd. Looks like a mistake by the guy inputting the cd info :)
that guitar riff just sounds so satisfying, it is addicting.
totally from siamese dream!
Thoroughly in love with the new album. Glad it came out
i miss the whiny voice
1.27 for your goosebump-inducing corgan guitar solo fix....yummy.... collectively and individually, these songs put out a unique atmosphere......well done, you new pumpkin set up ....just wow.
Best album since Siamese Dream...Rock On Billy!
Best song on the album
I rate the whole album. This is one of my favourite songs for sure.. I dislike the last song the most. Wildflower.
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!
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.
sounds very Zwan and i'm totally okay with that :) please billy tour europe again. come to vienna!
Reminded me of the old SP and yet feels renewed!
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" ;)
Now This is "Smashing Pumpkins" SOUND!!!!
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!
I really have to buy this cd!!!!
loving it yay Billy :)
definitely one of my favorite bands, so good
This new stuff with gain added to the guitars sounds a lot like Zwan. I like it~
I like it, actually I like it :)
Amazing!! Awesome solo :O
