Siamese Dream is the second studio album by American rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released on July 27, 1993 on Virgin Records. The album fused diverse influences such as shoegazing, dream pop, heavy metal and progressive rock. Despite recording sessions fraught with difficulties and tensions, Siamese Dream debuted at number ten on the Billboard charts, and eventually sold over four million copies in the US, and over six million worldwide, cementing The Smashing Pumpkins as an important group in alternative rock music

This sophomore album was the breakthrough for Smashing Pumpkins, though it was uncertain whether they'd be able to continue. And though Billy later admitted he was unhappy with how Siamese Dream had turned out, he came pretty close. Like the Cure's Pornography, Siamese Dream proved that the best music can still be made while going insane. Siamese Dream is like Billy Corgan's diary of all his relationships in the past two years. And it's not your usual diary where a casual entry would be: Dear Diary, the people at school are meanies and I hate them. The chicken was good.

Released July 27, 1993. Siamese Dream Tracklist. 1. Cherub Rock Lyrics. Along with Nevermind, this album solidified alternative rock as a true art form and brought the rebellious nature back to Rock and Roll. Siamese Dream Q&A. Art Direction By Billy Corgan & Chris Fabian.

SIAMESE DREAM - Smashing Pumpkins I've done my best with each of these tunes. Each one has been transcribed by me unless otherwise noted. So far I have: Cherub Rock Quiet Today Hummer Rocket Disarm (Mark Schnitzus) Soma Mayonaise (Sang Lee) Spaceboy Sweet Sweet (Jesse Scott). More will be coming soon. This song is one of the easier ones on the album. Lots of heavy, fat distortion, turn up the treble & bass and cut the mids. Do several tremelo bends, down then up, 4x until the drum intro -. 2/-- -7-7-7/9-9-9- --2/-- -7-7-7/9-9-9- - -5-5-5/7-7-7-. Play Riff 1 4x as intro, 4x under verse Play this chorus riff 3x then the held note ending

The sessions for their sophomore effort, Siamese Dream, were wrought with friction - Corgan eventually played almost all the instruments himself (except for percussion). Some say strife and tension produces the best music, and it certainly helped make Siamese Dream one of the finest alt-rock albums of all time

  • Siamese Dream. This album won 4x platinum in the US alone, and got The Smashing Pumpkins two nominations at the Grammy awards (1993: Best Alternative Music Performance, Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal). That being said, let's listen! The album kicks off with Cherub Rock (with the classic beginning of a drum roll). After a few seconds, it flows into a guitar riff (one that defined an era), and continually builds on itself. Finally, it smashes into the classic heavy sound that is "Siamese Dream". (The song discusses Billy's [the lead singer and band founder] hatred for bands that sell themselves out). "Quiet" follows, one of the heavier songs on the album. It is widely believed to be about a difficult childhood (as that is a reoccurring subject throughout the album). Next is "Today"; if you've never heard of this song and are somehow reading this review, how the crap did you get here? It is widely considered to be the best and most popular Smashing Pumpkins song. "Hummer" and "Rocket" follow, the first is about true happiness through sadness, and the latter discusses wanting to be freed from your demons and haunting past. (Both heavy, as every other song... until now -) "Disarm" is next, a slow song for a change on the album. It fits very well. Being one of Billy's more personal songs, he really describes how he feels about his parents and abusive childhood. Geek U.S.A. comes next, though there is no distinct and official document proving its meaning, it is commonly taken as making fun of humans as we think we are perfect, when really we're horrible. A masterpiece. A monument in songwriting history. I of course could be talking about no other song than "Mayonaise". It tells the tale of friendship, with slight flirts and possible liking, but the friendship never blooms into love. *chills*. It is widely considered to be the best Smashing Pumpkins song. "Spaceboy" follows, and is about Billy's younger brother (who suffered from a disability). It primarily consists of just acoustic guitar as opposed to the heavy electric guitar throughout the rest of the album. Next is "Silverfuck". It is the longest track on the album, and is primarily about losing yourself and becoming somebody you aren't just to fit the likes of a relationship partner. The guitar riffs are roller coasters, going up and down, loud and quiet. Finally, "Sweet Sweet" and "Luna" arrive, and are commonly listened to back to back, as they are very similar. The first is about taking comfort in pain, the latter (the last track on the album) is about someone breaking all their set rules of love for fear of being heartbroken, and falls head-over-heals.There you have it, Siamese Dream. Whether you're an old fan who's loved The Smashing Pumpkins since they were fashioned, or are a 15 year old geek in 2017 (me) who just loves alternative rock, you'll love this album. This is what real music is - not Kanye West, not Taylor Swift. The Smashing Pumpkins.

  • Album is practically impeccable. Corgan's confessional side manifests itself varying between choleric, graceful, melancholic and ironic and always sounding incredible. Musical reasoning is simple but allied with refinements which floods certain gracefulness that distances Siamese Dream from Grunge's label. Not overkill considering this album one of the best in 90's.

  • The success of Smashing Pumpkins debut “Gish” had led to a raft of critical acclaim and an anticipation that the Illinois four piece had the potential to rival Nirvana as the new darlings of grunge. For front man and chief songwriter Billy Corgan the pressure that came with creating a sophomore record that would be the glorious proclamation, and confirm their status as genuine contenders as the biggest alternative rock band squeezed all the extremes from his personality. A deep depression would cause Corgan to consider his own suicide following the release, and with little faith in his band members he recorded virtually all the guitar and bass parts himself. Had he been able to play drums then it’s likely he would have dispensed with the services of the heroin addicted Jimmy Chamberlain. Given Corgan’s mental fragility and megalomaniac tendencies, “Siamese Dream” is incredible in its discipline and cohesion, and is still a stand out recording from the decade. Its ultimate success would catapult the band from college mainstays to mainstream superstars. Indeed, it was the singer’s long held ambition to be bigger than Indie world, with the bristling opener “Cherub Rock” casting a single fingered digit to anyone who doubted their widescreen scope and intention to dominate album charts throughout the world. Whilst “Gish” was an album full of acid laced head bangers, this fastidiously recorded collection carried a multidimensional combination of weary melancholy and feisty, expansive hard rock.Despite the modernistic razor sharp tenacity that’s clearly evident, “Siamese Dream” is a record heavily influenced by British rock music from the past. The sound of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are never far from Corgan’s sonic explorations. Whilst the arrangements and melodies are incredibly self assured, lyrically there’s a stark confrontation with the debilitating issues of insecurity and solitary desperation. Whether it’s feelings of parental neglect (“Disarm”), impending divorce (“Soma”/”Hummer”), or sadness for his brother’s handicap (“Spaceboy”), each song feels painfully personal. The collection is incredibly consistent too, and listened to in its entirety, it is difficult to pick out a definitive highlight. The epic “Silverfuck” probably comes closest, emphasizing the raw power, meticulously layered dynamics and an eerie hint of 60s pyschedelia. For something so thoroughly awash in lyrical angst the music and arrangements are by definition, deliberately clinical, fresh, but most importantly hard as granite.Whether Billy Corgan found “Siamese Dream” to be some sort of mental exorcism we’ll never know. What we can ascertain however, is that he was a songwriter and performer who had reached his potential, resulting in a collection that many believe is his greatest work. Personal anguish has rarely sounded as viscerally potent as the 13 songs in this collection.

  • I do not exaggerate one bit when I say that this is one of the very best albums of the 90s. It's a shame that the Smashing Pumpkins would never come close to making an album like this before that time or ever since. In fact, the only alternative artists who have been able to top it are Nirvana and Alice in Chains in my opinion. Where do I even begin? Is the fact that this was recorded a quarter million dollars over budget enough? I think it is. Just give it a listen and have your faith in humanity restored.

  • I'm no fan of grunge, but I do love classic (Scholz's) Boston, so when I first heard 'Today' on the radio I was a little confused and elated at the same time. The production on Siamese Dream is, in my opinion, the best I have ever heard. This is arena rock with an alt tinge. The layered guitar sound produced by Corgan here is sublime. And here's the hook, even though I am no lover of grunge or anti-pop, this is easily my favourite album of all time, across all genres, and that's saying something.A monumental album by anyones standards, regardless of fads or fashion, Siamese Dream is an essential addition to anyones collection of classic albums. Just buy a copy.

  • The album that gave us 'the pumpkin chord'. One thing that I've always found ironic with the original Smashing Pumpkins is that despite them having a very distinguished sound, every album they released between 1991 and 2000 was considerably different to the last. I regard Siamese Dream as true to the Smashing Pumpkins intentions, straight down the line. It's lean and full of muscle. They nailed it subsequently developed broader musical aspirations.

  • Incredible. What a great album. The Smashing Pumpkins were amazing, "Cherub Rock" and "Mayonaise" are just orgasmic songs, f*cking mind blowing, "Disarm" and "Today" are one of their best slow songs. 90s masterpiece.Ranking:13.

  • I love this album, and Tonight Tonight is the best track off of it. Peter Hook is probably playing his best guitar parts ever next to front man Billy Corgram. Fun side fact - both girls ended up working at Del Taco in Anaheim CA.

  • This is the 78th album of a thread of album reviews in which I'd like to guide you through my personal musical history based on my top100 Album list you can find in my profile: the previous album in the thread was "Frosting Against the Beater" by the Posies.When I read a review that a new band (I discovered later that they were not new but already had a fist album called "Gish" has issued a phenomenal CD, I wanted to buy it immediately but I went on a trip to Scotland and bought in York and played the CD on the car stereo. After that first listening session I didn't like the album and thought it was though loud and had not enough subtlety.That changed quickly: Siamese Dreams" became one of my favorite albums ever and when I saw the Smashing Pumpkins at the Pukkelpop festival and I was completely hooked. Especially "Disarm" and "Silverfuck" are really incredible.After this album I kept following them and they issued some decent album but none of them could even tip at this one.There are 5 songs of this album which appear in my personal songs top 1000 and 1 more on another album:- Cherub Rock (this album)- Today (this album)- Disarm (this album)- Mayonnaise (this album)- Silverfuck (this album)- Starla (Pisces Iscariot)Next album in this thread: "Gentlemen" by the Afghan Wigs.

  • A great album. Billy Corgan's lyrical and vocal ability is great. Fav Tracks: Cherub Rock, Today, Rocket, Mayonaise, and Disarm.
