The Smashing Pumpkins 'Zeitgeist' at a bargain price. It's the German Edition but who cares when for £3.93 you can finally get it without shelling out close to a tenner!
Next best (outside The HUT group): £8.15 @ Base.com
BTW, best price for the UK version of the CD is £9.43!!
With its provocative title (Zeitgeist, meaning ‘Spirit of the Times’), depiction of a sinking Statue of Liberty in front of a red, glowing sun on the cover, and song-titles like "Doomsday Clock", 7 Shades of Black" and "United States," you don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to discern the themes and concerns of the new Smashing Pumpkins record. The first album to be released under the Smashing Pumpkins name since 2000, Zeitgeist is of special interest for those who thought that the Pumpkins game was all but finished. First single "Tarantula" showcases the sound of the new album: a heavy-ish, catchy slice of coruscating rock, it simultaneously harks back to the band’s older, stadium-rock days (see Siamese Dream) while continuing the power pop poses of Corgan’s recent (and now disbanded) Zwan project. While many songs - "7 Shades of Black," "Pomp & Circumstance," the intense, ten minute long "United States" – amply display the band’s vigorous side, tracks like "That’s the Way" offer slower, more lucid moments. There’s nothing here to quite match the glories of yesteryear, but Zeitgeist does profile a band still capable of hitting the spot.
