Hm.

They're STILL my favorite band.

I go on phases where I listen to nothing but SP for a few weeks...then I go months without listening to SP at all.

That being said...time to bust out Gish.

And I even like Machina. :\

I've been on a PI kick. They've been my favorite band for such a long time that whenever someone asks what I'm into, "Smashing Pumpkins" is the first thing out of my mouth...and I always keep at least one album in my car. It's just wrong not to. They're always going to be my favorite band...at least I think they will.

Adore is actually my nostalgic album. It makes me think of a specific time period. I still love it, though.

One thing is though, listening to them introduced to this limitless scape of new bands.

the guitar in "for martha" is great climax material

but i'm sure you already know that; if you don't, ask my ex-girlfriend

i'm not so sure that not listening to them anymore means you've "grown out of" anything...I believe one can have appreciation for the music that SP made and listen to them regularly without having "not grown" up...i dunno, i'm not attacking you, but whenever anyone says they've grown out of something, it seems condescending, that one who still listens to them hasn't grown up.

SP will always be my favorite band, they set the standard, to me, of great rock bands.

05-25-2002, 05:46 PM
they're still my favorite band, but I listen to them very little. I don't know, they're still great, but it has dawned on me recently, when listening to MCIS that Billy is ridiculously self-involved and melodramatic. pretty pathetic that I've liked them for seven years and I can only admit it now
oh well, like many of you said, when I put one of their CD's on now I realize why I liked them so much. especially PI, when I put it on, and Soothe comes on, I just feel really, humbled I guess. like my worries matter less than I realize and I just sit back and get taken away. I think PI is my favorite CD. by them; by any band

Since when did you have to be full of angst to like the Pumpkins? Was that all you ever got out of the music?

And sure, some of Billy's lyrics suck, but I just look past that. Pretty much every band I listen to has more than their share of awful lyrics.

<font color=#007AAA>Thanks to Machina and Zwan, I've come to the horrible conclusion that Billy Corgan isn't actually that talented at all. I've really grown away from the Pumpkins.

The fact that Thom Yorke kicks Bolly's fucking ass is just the clincher.

I habitually say "Smashing Pumpkins" whenever someone asks what kind of music I like. I don't listen to them as much as I used to anymore and I've kinda lost my interest, but they'll never be forgotten.

I've moved on, as I think I should have.

Yes.

I still love the Smashing Pumpkins when I put their music on, but I am in no way obsessed like I was for years. I guess I was sincerely fixated on them from age 14 to 20, but for the past 2 years I haven't really cared much. But I still love the music even if i don't listen to it all the time.

Yes, I still like the Pumpkins, but not like I used to. They were the first band I ever really liked, and in that sense there's a lot of nostalgia and wistful rememberances associated with listening to them. It's like a first true love, you know? I still hold a lot of affection for them, but I've moved on. I still keep all my Smashing Pumpkins discs in my CD books, and now and then I'll dust one off and throw it in for a spin. And, man--that's when I really remember why I'm into music at all.

Growing up is just another term for becoming jaded. It's like there is a limit to how much your allowed to enjoy things over the course of your lifetime and you pretty much empty the tank playing Nintendo and listening to Ace of Base as a youngster.

Yes. And I go through Pumpkins' phases where I fall in love with an album all over again. I admit, though, that much of it is nostalgia. Siamese Dream and Gish will always be my hallowed albums. Mellon Collie is pure, beautiful kick in the ass nostalgia. Adore is nostalgia and a bit more, and Machina is currently in limbo.

The Pumpkins are still my band.

what was it anyway?
05-29-2002, 04:33 AM
i still love most pre-Adore stuff, and I still listen to the post-MCIS stuff. Although I listen to Adore much more than the Machina stuff.

<font color="CC33CC">Exactly. The only thing I've "grown out of" is the teenage obsessive type thing, which is fun enough to relive once in a while with other SP fans. It's difficult to find others who haven't "grown up" and stopped listening to them altogether. I don't see what's so immature about them at all. Like someone else said, all bands have their share of retarded lyrics-- SP was never about perfection. I listen to much more music now b/c SP kindled the love of music in me. I don't think I could abandon them as they've certainly shaped the way I *have* grown up.
