A Top 5 album of the alternative / grunge era and also far and away my favorite Pumpkins album. 'Cherub Rock' all the way through 'Mayonaise' is precisely what I'm wanting to hear when I want to hear this group. Some of the later tracks aren't quite as strong IMO but still passable.

I'm adding that the follow-up Mellon Collie isn't as much to my liking despite containing some of my all time fav. Pumpkins songs like 'Bullet with Butterfly Wings' and 'Zero.' I'm just not as big a fan of the more polished, airier, radio-friendly Pumpkins tracks like 'Tonight Tonight' and '1979' plus found some of the non-single songs pretty forgettable. It's just a matter of personal preference I suppose.

Best album of the 90s. Loud, fuzzy pop rock songs with incredibly emotional, personal lyrics and a lot of interplay between the soft and the rough. There's a good variety to the album all while having a consistent texture and atmosphere. Honestly, I don't think this album is overrated. I think it is underrated. Don't miss "Mayonaise", one of the Pumpkins' finest songs.

A good but overrated album in my opinion. It's fine but it's not a patch on albums from Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden from around the same period. Part of the problem is that those other three bands had great singers, the Pumpkins do not. Still, there are some great moments and good songs but as a whole it's not up there with the classic records of the time from those other artists.

Easily one of my favorite albums, Billy Corgan fused psychedelia and grunge so perfectly on every song here.

This album is America's best answer to Radiohead in terms of critically acclaimed music in the 90s. A perfect blend of everything that made the rock scene at the time with the iconic guitar distortion on top. Corgan's lyricism and composition skills in this album rival Brian Wilson's Pet Sounds from 27 years earlier. A consistently flawless record made even better by a flawless track order, and to me America's quintessential 90s record.
