This is a pretty bitching tribute CD. I think every band pretty much nailed these songs. A lot of the bands tried to stay true to the original versions but a couple of them put their own style into the songs. One thing I did notice is that the songs are stripped down a bit. None of that glossy production here. This is raw stuff and it makes you understand why Smashing Pumpkins were so good to begin with. I think a lot of it had to do with the songwriting and just knowing how to craft good song structures. I actually liked the fact that the is a good array of bands on this that come from different genres to pay tribute to the Pumpkins the only way you can, acknowledge their influence and keep the songs alive.
