Played Siamese Dream

Listened Siamese Dream, the Smashing Pumpkins album from Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.

Siamese Dream is the second studio album by American alternative rock band the Smashing Pumpkins, released on July 27, 1993 on Virgin Records. The album has received widespread acclaim by audiences and critics alike, with the album’s musical influences and lyrical material standing out compared to other alternative records released during its time. The album has since been considered “one of the finest alt-rock albums of all time”.

Never heard this whole album before, only Today. I’m trying a new approach to finding new music since it seems Tidal’s a bit harder for me to find new stuff than Spotify, so I asked my husband for a music rec of an old album I’d never gotten around to listening to – he warned me it might be too 90s for me and he was right. A very consistent sound, the whole album fits together well, it’s just overpowering 90s without nostalgia for me. It was fine for the first half but the second half hour felt really long. Disliked Silverfuck and Sweet Sweet, though that could be influenced by being at the end of the album when I was over it 😉
