Unfortunately, my musical listening has been a little blah. This past week has been more of a week of reflection with the Smashing Pumpkins "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" . Since it's release in 1995 this album has been both intriguing and a lost cause to yours truly. The Pumpkins catchy tunes like Tonight Tonight, Zero, and Bullet with Butterfly Wings keep listeners attached, but loses its focus trying to tie to many elements to an otherwise ambitious album. I do believe that the Pumpkins can be one of the few bands that can still stand the test of time and truly enjoy their double disc album, but this is no "Gish".
I know it seems unfair not to list a few albums or artists I've been enjoying this week so here goes:
Notable Newbies for this Week
(artist followed by album)
1. Evil Nine - They Live
2. The Last Puppet Show - The Age of Understatement
Not to deviate from my musical focus, but I ran across this great combination of Super Mario World and the next president-elect. Give it a while just make sure to stay away from the lobbyists. http://superobamaworld.com/
