Decent album. Great start and end, but lacking a bit in the middle.

Favs: I Am One, Gish, Bury Me, Tristessa, Window Paine, Daydream

I take back what I said - Bury Me, Crush, Snail, & Tristessa are just as awesome as the first three songs... Window Paine and Suffer are just okay... Still liked it better when Billy had long hair.

A pretty kickass album, not a bad song on here, yet it is not as memorable as the Pumpkin's later two albums. Still a great debut; the fast brash songs and the slower songs are all great together, great chemistry for an album.

Underrated album. Their earlier psychedelic period never got the full credit it deserved, this album just straight up rocks.

First three songs are fantastic then the rest are just okay to me. I do like the last song "Daydream" with D'Arcy's vocals. I will say, I think I liked it better when Billy had long hair.

Great sound, almost combines Guns N Roses style hair metal with Cocteau Twins style dream pop. All tracks are good to great ("Rhinoceros", maybe the best ever Pumpkins song?) with maybe the exception of "Suffer". Overall a must-own for Pumpkins fans.

The first side of this album is pure brilliance

The second half tails off a little and tends to lose my interest - but is still great

I think the sound/ production on Gish is fantastic

Well worth your hard earned pennies/dimes

No wonder Mellon Collie was so good with this as a starting point - quality debut album.
