The Smashing Pumpkins: Gish

Sound — 10
This is the Smashing Pumpkins' first album. In my opinion, this is one of the best Smashing Pumpkins albums. Songs like 'Bury Me', 'Rhinoceros' and 'Snail' is what I'd say make up the overall sound of the album. It's a great first effort. If you own Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness or just one of those then you should definitely pick up Gish.

Billy Corgan does a great job lyricaly here but as the number of albums increase the better his song writing gets. I would say that Snail is the best song lyrically on Gish. It's also my favorite on the album.

Overall Impression — 10
Gish is a great album. Pick it up if you dont have it. It's worth every penny.
