    Production on this song just knocks me out. The low end is just amazing, to be so thick and distorted yet layered and distinct. The vocals...sheesh.

    Gotta love The Smashing Pumpkins. My favorite band and I share the same birthday with Billy Corgan :)

    But the band sure writes some beautiful and killer material.

    Some of my favorites from Mellon Collie (But love the whole album):

    Mellon collie is a masterpiece... it was always one of my reference albums when checking out hi fi equipment... on a quality stereo the production sounds sublime

    An amazing album with amazing songs. I still today find it funny that it was the bands third album and they were told by their record label not to pull off a double album being that it would be just their third album because it would be a career suicide. But instead became one of the best 90’s albums and taking more awards than any of their other albums lol.

    One of my favorites that is from the Aeroplane Flies High boxset which were songs that didn’t make it on Mellon Collie.

    Deep and amazing song.

    On gearslutz: Hey, anyone have any insights into production on Melon Collie:

    reply: The bass is tubby.

    OP: Well, I understand what you are saying but it sold 10 million units

    reply: 10 million stupid people

    Genre appreciation and production quality may co-exist, but can obviously also mean different things to different people.

    Case in point: Much of rap and hip hop is suberbly produced but that still doesn’t stop some people from cringing when they hear it.

    That doesn't mean it’s inherently good or bad, but the music (and subject matter) can be perceived as being so mind numbingly redundant and predictable (barring the clever little “hook” that makes it seem sophisticated) that it has the ability to make a certain group want to wretch (although I am occasionally impressed now and again myself).

    So, it is possible for something to be both the apex of sonic perfection and a total piece of crap at the same time... imho of course.

    That said, I can appreciate anything that is unique, technically challenging, exhibiting variety and is exceptionally well done and I truly think there can be something to like about any genre if you look hard enough and keep an open mind...

    They sure knew how to make records in the 90s without all the crap we "need" today. Guess they focused on making great songs too, not just great productions.

    Rap is easy to produce compared to rock. Take guitars and real drums out of a song and it gets a lot easier.

    Ok I know it’s not Mellon collie. But this to me is epic in so many ways. I
    Grabs you by the boo boo, has amazingly layered Big Muffy guitar riffs and excellent dynamics.

    Absolutely one of my favorite albums

    Was talking about Melon Collie because I figured peeps would be tired of the 10 threads about Siamese Dream. :D

    Yeah I hear you. I try to give the other albums love but it’s so hard to let go of Siamese Dream.

    I think they’re a great but they’re not my favorite band. But SD is up there as a favorite album.
