Album Review: The Smashing Pumpkins — “Monuments to an Elegy”

Posted by & filed under .

To the purists within the Smashing Pumpkins fold, the band officially died on December 2, 2000 when the remaining members of the original lineup, Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlain and James Iha played their farewell concert at Chicago’s The Metro.

Album Review: † † † (Crosses) — “Crosses”

Posted by & filed under .

There’s no avoiding it, so I’m just going to drop the name Deftones right here in the first sentence of this review.
