Smashing Pumpkins - Oceania

Post by Sea Change » Tue Jun 26, 2012 8:53 pm

Anyone else pick it up last week? It's an incredible album....some of their best work, in my opinion. My favorite tracks so far are The Celestials, Violet Rays, My Love Is Winter, The Chimera, and Inkless.

It is a good album but no where near to their best work in my opinion.

Billy said it was the best album since Adore. That is quite possible. I like it more than Zeitgeist.

I listened to it in full when they were streaming it. My favorite song would have to be the second or third to last. I don't remember which because I had to look up the lyrics because the songs were all strung together.

As a side note, A Song For A Sun is a really good song and I wish that Billy would have pushed it more when it came out.
"We can get lost in the fall glimmer sparkle and fade"

Totally agree there, Oceania is a pretty solid album.

Time will tell for me if it's better than Zeitgeist...so far it definitely has the potential, though.

I think the song you're talking about is Inkless....it's the second to the last track, my favorite on the whole album, and repeats the lyrics "The stars are out tonight."

A Song For A Son was a fantastic song....it had the "start of an epic journey" sound to it, and serves as a great starting track for Teargarden.

I have money in iTunes, but I want to pick up a hard copy so I wont be listening to it a lot until I do.

That's the song!

I definitely understand about having a physical copy man....I'm the same way. Plus, the Oceania digipak and liner notes are pretty snazzy!
