The Smashing Pumpkins: Rotten Apples: Greatest Hits

Sound — 10
I'm not going to lie I am a big Pumpkins fan. The bands sound is outstanding, it is very clear and some of the songs can easily get stuck in your head. Billy Corgan has some simple yet effective riffs and same with the drummer.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are also superb. Since Billy Corgan is the singer thats what you would expect, considering he is now making a poetry book or something like that. The lyrics go with the music also because when the music picks up the lyrics pick up with it.

Overall Impression — 10
This is an awesome album. If you have heard any of the pumpkins songs you should pick this cd up. Since it is their greatest hits it includes: Cherub Rock, Today, Disarm (A Killer In Me), Landslide, Bullet With Butterfly Wings (Rat In A Cage), 1979, Zero, Tonight Tonight, and finally Ava Adore. I love the rhythm of the cd, the lyrics everything. Too bad the pumpkins broke up because after this cd I am suddenly a huge fan. I definitely recommend this cd.
