Didn't Billy play all the bass parts on the albums anyway? (or was that just a rumor?)

I really, really, REALLY don't hope it'll be another Adore or Machina... Let's have some Gish/Siamese Dream/Mellon Collie!
It would be so wonderful if D'Arcy and James are in, but I highly doubt it. As for Melissa, I have nothing against her as I'm a big fan of her work with Hole, but if it's gonna be TSP, D'Arcy has to be in. No real Pumpkins without her. Or James Iha for that sake.

i'll take billy and jimmy playing together in any form. i actually LIKED zwan ('lyric', 'declarations of faith', 'settle down' - unreleased gems like the epic 'chrysanthemum' [holy guacamole!] and 'my life and times'). i reckon those two playing together and thinking about things as the pumpkins will yeild great results.
and i for one would be fucking pumped for anything in the same ballpark as machina/machina II, or gish/siamese dream for that matter. give me guitars and energy and melody!

I really don't understand why Adore gets shat on so much by Pumpkins fans. Especially since it's easily one of their best albums, if not their absolute best.

I agree, Adore is my favourite pumpkins album by far.


The reason why so many fans dislike it is because there are no hard rock songs. The reason why the pumpkins are so brilliant is because they write amazing rock songs and then follow them up by meaningful and deep songs that touch the soul.

I agree with Adore. It's one of my favorites. I like about half of the songs on Machine a lot, too. They could've trimmed that one down and it would've made a fine album overall.

I think Melissa is a much better musician than D'Arcy ever was. A reunion with the original lineup would really hype things up marketing-wise, but I think Billy is above that at this point.

Plus, Melissa is Canadian.

right on. i can live without d'arcy in the band.
james would be great,
but i could get by that, too.
basically, give me jimmy playing rock drums in well-written tunes
billy writing well-written tunes and playing rock guitar
and everything will be alright.
melissa would be fantastic...
