Muze PNote When SIAMESE DREAM was initially released in the summer of 1993 it was hailed as alternative rock's first great post-NEVERMIND hope. And while it has gone on to become an overwhelming commercial success, it has also helped further re-draw the artistic borders of "alternative" music.
Muze PNote By combining neo-psychedelic AOR guitars (band-members proudly claim Boston as an influence) with Pumpkin auteur Billy Corgan's "outsider" lyrical stance, SIAMESE DREAM creates a rebel image; but one with a wandering eye towards mainstream acceptance as well. Consequently, Smashing Pumpkins are equally successful relating to young lollapaloozers and to classic rock radio.
Muze PNote The album's immediate attraction is plain to see. Corgan and co-producer Butch Vig have sculpted a sonic wall of guitars--in some cases, using up to 32 separate guitar tracks on a single song--that is electrifying in its sheer scope and power. Along with Jimmy Chamberlin's powerhouse drumming, guitarists Corgan and James Iha's thick sound endows SIAMESE DREAM with a fresh feel that holds up even on repeated listens--and how many other "top ten" albums can you say that about?

Producer: Kerry Brown (Reissue); Billy Corgan (Reissue)

Rolling Stone (p.104)

Spin (8/93, p.82)

Kerrang (Magazine)
(p.51)
- "[With] guitar solos from heaven, wall upon wall of lushly textured sound, and grand, epic vision."

Q (Magazine)
(p.122)
- "[A]n album that draped its influences -- Cheap Trick, Led Zeppelin, New Order -- in a fuzzy haze, suggesting heavy metal played by a group coming down from an acid trip. It's a high-water mark from the era."

NME (Magazine)
(12/25/93, p.66)
- Ranked #6 in NME's list of `The Top 50 LPs of 1993' - "...The rediscovery of the guitar as motorbike and also one of the year's most emotionally punishing efforts..."
