Muze PNote Elaborately packaged in the kind of box in which people used to store vinyl singles, THE AEROPLANE FLIES HIGH is a set of 5 CDs, each containing a single from the Pumpkins' 1995 album MELLON COLLIE AND THE INFINITE SADNESS along with several B-sides. The singles are "Bullet With Butterfly Wings," "1979," "Zero," "Tonight, Tonight" and "Thirty Three," and the B-sides number 28, some of them previously unavailable in the U.S. THE AEROPLANE FLIES HIGH celebrates the chart hits while fetishizing those B-sides; they run the gamut of Pumpkindom, from stadium anthems and classic-rock ballads to metal thrashings and GISH-era indie rock.
Muze PNote The "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" disc alone offers five covers: The Cars' "You're All I've Got Tonight," Alice Cooper's "Clones (We're All)," the Cure's "A Night Like This," Missing Persons' "Destination Unknown" and Blondie's "Dreaming." These covers reveal the true heart of the Pumpkins, a band whose love of pop music is so unabashed and wide as to disallow any attempts to pigeonhole the band's sound. Some might consider this singles box-set business a bit of a self-indulgent vanity. But it's a perfect forum for the Pumpkins, who have always followed their whims and not commercial strictures.
Muze PNote Liner Note Authors: Billy Corgan; David Wild.

Muze PNote Illustrator: Noel Waggener.
Muze PNote The Aeroplane Flies High contains all five singles -- "Bullet With Butterfly Wings," "1979," "Zero," "Tonight, Tonight," "Thirty-Three" -- from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness in a box set shaped like a 45 single carrying case from the '60s. Though the set contains all of the B-sides from the five singles, the running order isn't quite the same as the original releases; for example, in its original release, "Butterfly Wings" only had two B-sides, but it is augmented for covers of new wave artists like the Cars, Blondie, and Missing Persons. In total, the box set has more songs than Mellon Collie, and, by and large, the quality of the music is quite strong. Occasionally, Billy Corgan's prolificacy gets the better of him; there are a number of songs where his reach exceeds his grasp, and he doesn't quite come up with an engaging melody to match his detailed production. At other times, his musical experimentations catch hold, such as when he delves into jazz or orchestrated pop. Still, all of these pleasures are ones that are only of interest to dedicated Smashing Pumpkins fans who already know Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness inside and out. A casual fan will have a hard time sorting out the wheat from the chafe on The Aeroplane Flies High, but that work will be a pleasure for the diehards. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/12/96, pp.81-82)
- 4 Stars (out of 5)
- "...a cutting-room floor companion piece to MELLON COLLIE that provides insight into [Billy] Corgan's extraordinary creative outbursts....There is no filler here. These supposedly second-string tracks are keepers..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/29/96, pp.88-89)
- "...THE AEROPLANE FLIES HIGH is a musical post-script--the ultimate holiday treat for Corgan-heads--but other bands would smash more than pumpkins to have leftovers this savory."

- Rating: B

Musician (2/97, p.121)
- "...the Pumpkins have relatively sophisticated musical ideas....executed with irresistible power and grace....these are the things that small pop miracles are made of..."
