First Trent Reznor releases a new album (With Teeth) and now Billy Corgan announces in a Chicago newspaper ad that he wants to reunite The Smashing Pumpkins. It’s like a flashback from my childhood except it’s permanent. I actually liked the Zwan band he put together, and so far am enjoying his solo work, The Future Embrace.
I also like that Billy Corgan has become more positive, and hope they go back to the classic root of alternative rock that their Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness albums brought. After Mellon Collie, I felt their style changed too much for me to enjoy as much as the previous albums. They gone all dark, and a bit too techno, than rock.
If they do reunite, the original band members, I’ll be really excited. Hey, if the Pixies can do it, they sure can!
