okay, seirously now, are the pumpkins actually reforming? i've heard too much speculation to be sure. and i'm not sure if i'd like that... i think they should just quit while they were high... i'm worried this new album will be a let down.

oh and corgan, he's also done some solo stuff recently, not sure if he's sticking with that though...? hmm.

i love billy corgan.

aye, he did do a solo album which many say was shite, even at his gigs they asked him to play pumpkins songs which he got pissed off about

still this whole pumpkins reunion does seem a bit odd, last i hear he plans to put out a new album...then again if he is the mastermind writing it wouldnt it just be his second solo album with a different backing group?

i dunno....something about this reunion dont seem to be right

I will try! I am a big fan of them since 1994, and I was 11 in 1994.

I am excited too! Corgan deserves another chance, he's one of the best songwriters of this era in my opinion. I like the title and the release date thing.

Not very good, uh? I didn't like it at all and it surprised me because I do like his lyrics a lot.

yeah...i'm so very glad you said that. i read blips from about seven poems and was not impressed. i kept thinking that he was simply captializing on the pumpkins to get the book published.

New album's cover artwork was revealed a few days ago:

I really like it, looks good.

Tracklist:
1. Doomsday Clock
2. 7 Shades of Black
3. Orchid
4. That’s the Way
5. Tarantula
6. Starz
7. United States
8. Never Lost
9. Bring the Light
10. Come On (Let’s Go)
11. For God and Country
12. Pomp and Circumstance


Tarantula will be the first single, you can find a 30 seconds preview of the song all over internet and guess what? I LOVED THOSE 30 SECONDS.

OK, I know I am the only Pumpkins' fan here, bUT anyway...

I know this sounds bizarre-- but my mom LOVES Billy Corgan. She says that anyone would sing 'despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage' after a relationship with Courtney Love :lol: :lol:
A note upon his desk
"P.S. Bring Me Home And Have Me!"
Leather elbows on a tweed coat
-Oh!-
Is THAT the best you can do ?
So came his reply :
"But on the desk is where I want you!"
