Any one of Gish/SD/PI/MCIS/TAFH is better than every release that came after. It's been a continual decline since.

Pisces is brimming with dreamy shoe gaze bliss and sounds like a real indie album. Adore just can’t compare.

Pisces isn't even a real album, let alone a "real indie album" whatever that even means.

I can see unpretentious because it had no higher vision, just a collection of good songs, but definitely not lo-fi

Sometimes I think I like Pisces more than Siamese Dream, much less Adore. Even if it is technically only a compilation, it sounds just as much of a consistent, cohesive album as Adore does, if not moreso. And yeah, like half of it is like their best shit of all time. High, high-tier Pumpkins release

Compared to Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and Gish, Adore kinda sucks.

The idea that Adore isn't part of their "true canon" is fucking stupid though

You’re being ironic by making an overly obvious true statement sound tentative right?

In my humble opinion, Zeitgeist is inferior to Gish, SD, and MCIS.

I don't think it's that obvious or that agreed upon. Adore is very, very good. I understand why it ranks lower for a lot of fans, but I laugh at anyone who would seriously argue the songwriting and lyrical development on Adore are not at least arguably Billy Corgan's peak in those areas.

I don't really think it is TBH. Adore was the first album with a large portion of filler. It was the first time that the cracks really started to appear and it foreshadowed what was to come... Take an album like Machina, Machina has a lot more in common with Adore than it does Mellon Collie or Siamese Dream.

people bitched about Mellon Collie having a shitload of filler as well. not like the first time that argument ever came up. and regardless, no one ever fucking agrees on what the "filler" is on Adore so that's obviously a load of shit

i'm trying to be relatively objective here, as well. i love Machina but I can at least understand why people wouldn't put that in the sacred "90s canon" with the others, for various reasons

Adore is not even that big a departure, I have never understood this view. Adore is a lot like all the previous releases except he changed the "atmosphere" to be gothic

Why the fuck wouldn't all the pre-breakup releases be canon regardless of anything else? Anyone saying canon stops at some arbitrary mark other than the band actually breaking up and not playing for years is just trying to legitimize some feeling they have of personal sanctity towards a select group of songs... i.e. these people need to chill the fuck out and get over it, it's really not that important.
