Pisces Iscariot

Post by incessantmace » Sat Feb 04, 2012 2:45 am

I think this record deserves its own thread. It must truly be one of the greatest b-sides collections ever and it really shows the Pumpkins at the height of their existence. So many great and vastly different songs, from Frail and Bedazzled to Starla and the Landslide cover.... It's all the way up there with Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie, and 98% of all other bands would kill for writing A-SIDES reaching the quality of these b-sides. Right?

Mellon Collie used to be a big thing for me when it came out. But this album I have never given a listen to !

It's a compilation of b-sides and rarities originally released in 1994 or 1995, so encompassing the Gish and Siamese Dream era, and it's really really really good. If you don't have this you definitely need it!!!

This one is a real gem!

I was stunned when I heard the "Landslide" cover, one of the rare occasions where I like the cover more than the original.
