Because of this weird property of time, being that it evolves in only one direction, I think the stupidity of TheFutureEmbrace can be considered as the sum of its own inherent stupidity and the stupidity of Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. Hence it is impossible for Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness to be stupider.

Mellon Collie is worse , considering i didn't see that title coming at all the first time round. But TheFutureEmbrace is no worse than Blinking with Fists. I could see a title coming like that a mile away.

You asked to discuss, I discussed.

mellon collie was a joke, not meant to sound "cool"

the future embrace seems like it's serious/meant to sound cool, but doesn't quite make it

therefore, mellon collie wins on the basis of the expectations and intent game

no way man, mellon collie like totally defined my teenage years dude, yeah maybe it is a little stupid but what billy was trying to say is that life is stupid man, and it works on that level.

i actually liked the melon collie title when it came out because i thought it fit the album well.. had siamese dream been titled mcis then that would've sucked,sure. so maybe after listening to the album you all will change your mind.

i just wish that billy would keep his singing sound closer to the pumpkins way or even zwan way. this new voice sounds like he's trying to sing, and thats whats not going to sell for him if keeps it up. anyone agree?

I wonder how many people in this forum, to this day even, actually think "Mellon Collie" is a stupid name because they have no idea that it's just a play on words of the term "Melancholy" which means 'Sadness and mental depression'.

I'll bet there's at least a few.

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness isn't a bad title. It's overly dramatic to a cartoonish extent, but so is the material on the album, so it works really well. The Future Embrace is pretty dumb if you think of it as 'embracing the future', but if you think of embrace as holding onto something in the future it's ok...oh wait, nevermind. It sounded good until I typed it out.

I guess the album title is better than:

- The Phoenix meets the Dwarf
or
- Basketball Land
or
- Baseball City

These were the original titles that were being bantered around before then came up with “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness”

Billy calls the Album title, “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness” a pretentious Pumpkin album in a long line of albums. So, I guess The Future Embrace isn’t too far off.

I think there could have been better choices of album titles then these.

At least it wasn't "MellonCollieandtheInfiniteSadness".

TheFutureEmbrace is pure shit. As I said before, John Tesh would be glowing over such a title. It's just the word "embrace" is so faggy. Is the album about hugging? Does little Billy need a hug? Or is he embracing "futuristic rock", or hopes that people will, in the future, embrace his vision of music. It's so fucking lame it can't even be considered pretentious.

And think about this. Billy has never made an album that started with The. It just doesn't work. And if you look on AllMusic for albums with the word Embrace in the title (most of them even have Embrace as the outright title), it's quite a few. Adding Future doesn't make it any less unoriginal and fucking stupid.

There's still a chance that this isn't the actual album title though, right?

Sometimes the title of an album is also a song title or part of the lyrics. But that's about it. If this would be the case with Billy's album, I think that makes things only worse.

Just imagine...

You're supposed to pronounce the "oh yes" as "oh yays" because otherwise it won't rhyme. It's called poetic freedom.
