Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

It's hard to rate this against Siamese Dream, because Siamese Dream is almost a perfect album. I think it's better just because there's so much more to choose from though. Pop songs, soft songs, synth songs, heavy songs, grunge songs, etc. Not to mention, when I really think about it, I like the singles off Melon Collie better than the singles off Siamese Dream. This is the essential Pumkins album, and one of the greatest albums ever penned. An absolute masterpiece. I think it's underrated just because of the length, which for me is honestly a plus. If you like 90's music you can find something here, as mentioned above. Take the time and listen to both discs all the way through. You won't be disappointed.

Very cinematic and great production but just too long for a higher score.

This is one of my favorite album listening experiences, it just goes to so many different places and accomplishes them all almost perfectly, there are probably a couple of songs that could've been cut but honestly, I'm glad that they weren't just listening to something this consistently good for that long is a really neat experience

Oooff... finally listened to this album in it's entirety. Kept thinking that I won't sit through the whole thing but I'm really glad I did. Allways thought The Smashing Pumpkins are somehow too overrated, but this album here proved me wrong. Can't believe there is so many great songs on this record, that I'm even thinking about buying it. Love the mixture of melancholy and aggresion sounds so much. Very good work.
Favorite tracks:
1. By Starlight
2. To Forgive
3. Thru The Eyes Of Ruby

Has some of SP's greatest hits and a bit of filler. Its length can be a deterrent to some (including me, if I am honest). Overall, a good album. Worth the time and effort to listen to in its entirety.

@Brad1770 leaving off Porcelina, Galapogos, Forgive, & Here Is No Why are BIG mistakes in my opinion... especially leaving Where Boys Fear To Tread, Tales of Scorched Earth (unless instrumental), & Love while adding four B-sides, none of which are Set The Ray To Jerry, in their places... bold move Cotton... I'll give your playlist a listen and see if it pays off

I finally listened to the album in one sitting, in its entirety. For 23 years I’d only listened to the hits and bits of other songs.

I was floored by this album. It is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. For instance, the final 5 songs (including “We Only Come Out At Night” which is my favorite song on the album) make much more sense in the context of the album, whereas they aren’t that strong listened to individually. The whimsical nature of these closing tracks remind me a great bit of the closing medley of Abbey Road.

Speaking of the Beatles, I get strong White Album vibes from this. I know Billy Corgan called it “The Wall for Generation X” but it has much more in common with the self-titled Beatles album in my opinion.

Intense, varied, and sprawling, Mellon Collie does what so few double albums do: encourage you to immediately dive back in for more.
