Bill Corgan None to Pleased at Amazon

Posted by - 10:12 PM on 07/16/14
Billy Corgan is not happy that Amazon leaked the Smashing Pumpkins' Adore Reissue track listing.
I spent some time this morning preparing what was meant to be the reveal of the ADORE BOX SET, for where the real juice lies in it is what sonic goodies made their way on it. Notably, I was prepared to share this information here on The Panopticon as far back as two months ago, but made the mistake of asking the record label if I should wait. And if you saw my comments earlier today, you already know that I’m very upset that an online retailer broke their agreement, posting up the tracks up before we could do it here first AS THEY’D ASKED. The irony being where do you think this kind of information comes from, if not for your truly?

I suppose it's only natural that someone who was brilliant and weird enough to pen "Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness" was probably doomed to grow up into a very strange, awkward middle-aged man.

If it were anyone else, I'd say these complaints were justified.

But since it's Billy I'm going to say he needs to stop whining about everything.

Who gives a fuck? Song titles before a release don't necessarily say or do anything with regards to an album, other than to say there's this many songs on the record.

I never get the unnecessary hate for Billy.
I feel like what most people view as incessant whining is just the fact that Billy cares so much about this band and about his music. This guy's track record is just totally untouchable - how many other modern artists put out records as consistently grandiose and incredible as he did from '91 - '00?

Haha some people just dont understand that alot of artists put their blood sweat and tears into making records and have ideas on how THEY want to present these projects to the world. I cant blame him.. but lets forget that amazon BROKE their agreement. This isnt a handshake like "ok now please dont release the track listing" this is a full on business agreement involving the hard work and effort HE put into it..

It's not like a re-issue of Siamese Dream where people would actually care what goodies were on it...

In other news, homeless people are unhappy that food and homes are often hard to come by. Now a moment of silence for Billy Corgan and his tracklist.

This is not the first time Amazon has jumped the gun on these things, I understand why he is disgruntled by this, but there are far more important things than a reissue's track listing being leaked, via a medium where his album will be for sale anyway. He doesn't lose money over this. It's not like the album leaked 3 months before it was going to be released or something.

I can't believe that this is something a real person would be upset about.
