Lead singer Billy Corgan described Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream as the band’s “middle finger to the indie world.” NME quotes him:
“Even though it wasn’t the one that sold the most, it’s the one that seems to have come through the best. As dark a records as Siamese Dream is, there’s a lot of fun in it, it’s almost like we’re kind of laughing at how stupid the whole thing is. It’s like, here’s my pop song about suicide and here’s my epic song about child abuse, and here’s my big middle finger to the indie world.”
Between the pain, fun, and nasally snarl of Corgan, Siamese Dream captured a piece of the ’90s rock spirit like a wave of nostalgia that still swells when you listen to songs like “Disarm” or “Today.” Almost 20 years later, the album has been remastered and is being reissued as a box set.
What The Box Set Includes:
– Original Album Remastered With Reimagined Cover Art
– 17 Previously Unreleased or Alternative Versions of Siamese Dream Era Songs
– Previously Unreleased, Full Length DVD From The Metro 1993
– 13 Postcards Featuring Original Album Collages
– 24 Page Booklet Featuring Complete Lyrics, Unpublished Personal Photos, Liner Notes by David Wild, and Track-by-Track Annotations by Billy Corgan
