Best Reissues! 2011 (Smashing Pumpkins edition)

These came out after my initial list but I had to include them, well, because they are incredible.

Smashing Pumpkins reissued their debut album Gish and their 1993 epic genius Siamese Dream, and talk about a monster gift. It truly has been a while since I’ve listened to either of these discs, but the remastering of each track is amazing. While Butch Vig did them justice to begin with on both discs, it’s particularly impressive to hear Gish again with the tune up.

Too bad they don’t make ’em like these anymore.

Here is Billy talking a bit on the two discs:

From Gish:

I Am One

Siva

and from Siamese Dream:

Cherub Rock

Mayonaise (my favorite track on the album)

Silverfuck
