Neat. Hopefully these songs are a bit more crafted than their recent stuff.

From what I've heard of these songs (I've tried to stay away) they sound much better than anything else post-reunion. Pumpkins have been my absolute favorite band for a while; needless to say I'm stoked about this.

I haven't liked anything the Pumpkins have done since Mellon Collie. Adore and Machina were so mediocre. And everything post breakup is unbearable.

I will be an eager listener. My unabashed love for the Pumpkins will not be deterred by recent lapses in quality.

I have no idea how this was off my radar until just now. I'm not getting my hopes up, but you can always hope to hang your hat on a massive Corgan tune if he has one left in him. Been awhile. We'll see.

When you listen to their new stuff, listen to "Song For A Son" first. It's laid out much like a 70's rock epic (a la Stairway To Heaven. Not saying it's a modern Stairway To Heaven, but it's got a similar format).

Saw SP live in December 2010. They put on a fantastic show. Really looking forward to this album.

But Billy, I thought that record labels and albums were obsolete in the current state of the music industry? You a lie. I'll admit I'm cautiously intrigued though.

Billy Corgan is an awesome dude. Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie are amazing albums. Definite must haves.

I have listened to a few of the live versions of the songs on Oceania. They are all incredible and I cannot explain how excited I am for this! I have been waiting for a solid full length for a while now.

The Pumpkins were my favourite band for the better part of my teenage years. Haven't kept up with Teargarden, but I will be picking this up the very morning it comes out.
