Review/Comments/Thoughts:
The Smashing Pumpkins, who in my opinion have a unique sound. I personally find Billy Corgan to be like this generation's David Bowie, In a sense, He does not limit himself to one creative outlet. Favorites on this album include Today, Cherub Rock, Disarm, Rocket

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
The Last Official album by the band. Corgan announced that he would dissolve the band by the end of 2000, This CD sees the return of drummer Jimmy Chamberlain, and the departure of long time bassist D'arcy, It also sees Former Hole bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur filling in on bass on the CD and their farewell tour. Word has it that James Iha and D'arcy are forming a group tenatively called The Virgins Other than the single The Everlasting Gaze I have no other favorite songs but I do like the intensity of this album.
