    wonder has any other band had such a creatively fruitful period as The Smashing Pumpkins had during their Mellon Colly sessions. Not only did the produce a sprawling 2 hour classic, they had over 2 hours worth of additional quality material left over afterward, lots of which is to be found in this collection. There are lots of hits here and the occasional miss but this whole era of the Pumpkins is fascinating. This material combined with Pisces Iscariot would definitely have given up enough material for another classic SP record proper.Of all the disks, Zero is my favourite - hard to believe this material was discarded as B-sides. Also has Pistachio Medley on it which has ideas for another 30 songs on it. Billy Corgan the Riff King of the 90's. Full Review »
