Better than Zeitgeist but that isn't saying much. I like this Smashing Pumpkins best but most people have tuned out at this point.

Billy Corgan should have made a career as a songwriter for someone else or perhaps in production--their music is typically produced well and if he has a large hand in that process, then he is skilled.

But the singing ruined whatever talent this band had around it which I always thought was very little.

Popular grunge music was more about embracing being a misfit and an outcast, than good at making music so The Pumpkins fit.

I'm hoping as more time passes people will become more sensible around this band and their place in music.

This record is a mixed bag. Not their best and not their worst. Meh.

This is a good entry into th Pumpkins catalogue and was a significant improvement on Zeitgeist

It sounds quite like melon collie at times

Well wort a listen

When I first listened to the first two tracks I said to myself "Boy this is gonna be a long album..." Coz those 2 songs are really horrible. If you survive those 2 songs however, the album range from average to good. Highlights includes One diamond one heart and The Celestials.

Best Pumpkins album since Mellon Collie....I feel it would have been an even stronger album without the last three tracks.

I have to say that I spun this a ton the summer it came out. Sure, it's gonna age like shit, I agree, but I think it stayed fresh longer for me than for anyone else.

Some attempts are made to bring in a classic Pumpkins dreamy shoegaze sound but it comes off as phony and uninspired. Significantly worse than Zeitgeist.

Solid album indeed, some of the best music billy has written in years. Quasar is the opener and fucking rocks like any pumpkin's opener should, whilst Pinwheels is one of the most beautiful songs the band has released in years.

I was a big fan of the Pumpkins in the '90s, growing up with the likes of Gish, Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie. Everything since from Billy has failed to captivate me like those records. Enter Oceania, Billy's most accomplished songwriting in over fifteen years. Many of the songs are unexpectedly subtle and even subdued. Billy sings and plays with more emotion, as if he really cares about this new incarnation of the band. One of the greatest surprises in '12 alternative rock.
