View Full Version : Listening to MCIS is depressing

Where did it all go wrong? MCIS is so good, it just makes you wonder what happened to them. Its also depressing to think we'll probably never hear another song like XYU - or even another scream from Billy like we get in XYU.

And, then, to go from XYU straight to We Only Come Out At Night just reminds me of how dynamic and exciting the pumpkins used to be. You never knew what the next song was going to be like...

Very sad...

Just one disc has Ruby, Bodies, 1979, XYU, In the Arms of Sleep... not even to mention Dawn to Dusk with it's Tonight, Tonight, Bullet, Porcelina, Galapogos, Muzzle, etc.

I hope beyond all hopes that SP2 (if there even is one - i'm starting to doubt it) manages to replicate some of this greatness, but it's not feeling likely after Zwan (studio) and TFE (although I did like TFE, but for completely different reasons)...

100 % agree with you, goldentouch. I feel kinda the same way. MCIS is a masterpiece, you can't beat a masterpiece, it's as simple as that. :)

Maybe it's depressing because it's called, Mellon Collie and the Infinite SADNESS?

I didn't mean "depressing" in the literal sense, of course. It's just kinda sad that we aren't still getting stuff of that quality released by them.

I agree Kahlo though - scary how long ago it came out now.

'mcis' lifts me up when i feel depressed.


When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

We'll never hear another album of it's quality.

And if we do, I want to be the one who wrote it!

XYU sucks. It's my least favourite MCIS track.

mcis is simply a beautiful cd. any compliment of it is welcomed in my book. if i had to take one album to listen to for the rest of time it could be mcis, because it covers everything in those 2 CDs.

I don't get depressed when I listen to it, I just feel nostalgic. It was inevitable that they would change, as does everything and everyone.

Yeah I don't like a song you like, I guess that makes me a dumbfuck eh? Nice reasoning.

MCIS after porcelina is pretty depressing but in the best way possible

After adore the wheels came off not after MCIS. I think of Adore as a funeral for what the pumpkins were. Machina was the reincarnation that quickly died, kinda like a human reincarnating into an ant.

What will the new pumpkins be??

a tick?

a tiger?

????????????????????
