That's usually the real reason behind a modern double album like say Metallica's recent album. RIAA, Soundscan and Billboard have set a pretty significant standard for what a double album consists of.
"The Smashing Pumpkins are back." The gang is back together.

Their most popular and iconic (arguably, many will argue SD was the most iconic) album was a double album.

Well, they're bringing back the legacy and the ambition they are known for after putting out something that didn't "count" as a real album, because real SP albums are grandiose.

That's the intent. Mellon Collie for the 2020s.

Except they don't want anybody to think they are rehashing or cashing in on their past success, so it's going to sound nothing like MCIS, and it's going to be "modern" instead.

Except "modern" has meant the same thing to Corgan since 2003.

The former would be less than four minutes.
3 minutes + 72 seconds, which is actually 4 minutes and 12 seconds.

So that would be 4.2 minutes or 4:12. Where are we getting these numbers from anyway?

What's concerning for me, regarding the future of the band, is that ĆŘĞŃ spent a year on this, which is probably the most he's spent on an album - unless he's including writing and demoing, although I know he always does a lot of that while recording.

MCIS was twice the length, contains a bevvy of peak SP material and was done in six months.

So far for me, all four are better than anything on Shiny, besides Silvery. But that's hardly any consolation, seeing as that album was mostly 1/10 SP.

Oh yeah, and MCIS was plucked from something like 60 songs and we got a dozen b-sides, all of which were quite wonderful.

One more oh yeah, out of a possible 11,000: were talking about long songs with 100 guitars, shit loads off effects, guitar solos and massive, complex drums.
