28 Songs, 2 Hours 1 Minute

EDITORS’ NOTES

This edition of one of the most important and artistically ambitious albums of the '90s features a remastering of the original album by Bob Ludwig. Even before it was further boosted by Ludwig here, the original album was one of the finest-sounding albums of its day, with producer Flood and his longtime associate Alan Moulder ensuring that every guitar chord achieved epic grandeur. The album spanned two fully packed CDs upon its original release, making it essentially a 4-LP set. The songwriting was solid, and Corgan was clearly on a mission to inject his prog-rock interests into a slicker-than-grunge hard rock sound.

History

The greatest album of the 90's. Perfect

The Smashing Pumpkins at Their Summit

This is quite honestly the best double album I've ever heard. Tonight, Tonight sets the tone and the adventure gets wild from there. 1979 is a modern classic. I know the issue with long albums like this is filler. You could argue that there is a lot of filler tracks on here, but I beg to differ. Each song is critical to the album's structure, a gem of its own. Do me a favor and finish this album while staring into the stars. I promise you'll adore this album afterwards.

Perfection

Legitimately one of the best rock albums ever produced. Incredible from start to finish.
