Pisces Iscariot was released after just two Smashing Pumpkins studio albums -- Gish, Siamese Dream -- had been issued. For a collection of studio outtakes and European B-sides, it plays surprisingly cohesively. It is as essential as their "official" studio albums from this era. The demo of "Soothe" is a mediative, acoustic demo. "Whir" brings the band together for an acoustic-guitar-based tune that highlights the group's psychedelic dream-pop side.

(The 2012 Deluxe Edition includes 17 unreleased or alternate versions of tunes from the 1990s.)
