Release date: June 19

Tracklist:

My favorite tune: Pinwheels

Corgan is back in the game and evidently tries to reverse his musical evolution. Returning to ear friendly Zwanish pre Machina sounds, with Byrne plays Chamberlin-like drumlines, maybe this album will find wider market than some of his  previous ‘avant-garde’ efforts. As for originality, well, don’t even bother to ask. Just enjoy, pretend that now is the 90’s and Pumpkins’ original members are still in the band.

My Rating: 7/10
