it actually seems to me that many seminal, highly influential music artists, whether we are talking about roots music in the 40s or college indie in the 80s, did something really innovative with a very specific sound or approach, which was later adopted into a larger, more diverse collage of sounds by successive artists

Yeah you've already established that absurd suggestion. I am more interested in what other "founding indie bands" you think are limited when compared to other "90s alternative acts."

why don't you explain how anyone with ears could think Loveless is as sonically diverse as Siamese Cream

In fairness though, Smashing Pumpkins cover a wider range of sounds than 90% of rock bands from any era

which is one of my main reasons for ultimately picking SD over Loveless. The diversity of soundscapes in SP's music still amazes me 15 years after I first heard their music.

There's nothing to explain. Just listen and count.

If you group Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and both Machina albums then yes they cover a range of sounds that is wider than 100% of bands from any era.

However, if you are just comparing Siamese Dream to Loveless, you cannot say that Siamese Dream is as diverse as Loveless in the actual number of various sounds that exist to make up those albums.

loveless's strength does not lie in 'diverse sonic soundscapes' or dynamic shifts or something. it lies in creating a world of psychadelium in which the listener can lose his or herself. dopesmoker is similar.

agreed, Loveless' strength is something entirely different than SD which is why this comparison is so difficult to make. At a surface level the sounds are pretty similar but they are actually really, really different albums.

i guess it depends on what you value as a listener. for me i want to be submerged in an album. loveless makes a better whole and captivates me far more than sd does.
