When SIAMESE DREAM was initially released in the summer of 1993 it was hailed as alternative rock's first great post-NEVERMIND hope. And while it has gone on to become an overwhelming commercial success, it has also helped further re-draw the artistic borders of "alternative" music. By combining neo-psychedelic AOR guitars (band-members proudly claim Boston as an influence) with Pumpkin auteur Billy Corgan's "outsider" lyrical stance, SIAMESE DREAM creates a rebel image; but one with a wandering eye towards mainstream acceptance as well. Consequently, Smashing Pumpkins are equally successful relating to young lollapaloozers and to classic rock radio. The album's immediate attraction is plain to see. Corgan and co-producer Butch Vig have sculpted a sonic wall of guitars--in some cases, using up to 32 separate guitar tracks on a single song--that is electrifying in its sheer scope and power. Along with Jimmy Chamberlain's powerhouse drumming, guitarists Corgan and James Iha's thick sound endows SIAMESE DREAM with a fresh feel that holds up even on repeated listens--and how many other "top ten" albums can you say that about?

Although now just looked at findcd, it is cheaper in a few other places. But still a very good deal.

Very tempting at this price... however, I struggle to have confidence in TheHut (and all therir associate websites) when I buy things that come unsealed like CDs. New?! The discs I receive always seem to be scratched or appear (to my eye) to be polished/resurfaced! Indeed, the condition of the last CD I bought was a joke.

Anyway, to each their own. Although this is on my want list I think I'd rather pass and pay the extra money to get it elsewhere.

I've bought perfume off the hut, that is my only experience.

I am just happy to have the CD, and it working at the end of the day. However if it is really, like you say, scratched , you can probably just take it back.

What have you bought from "thehut" exactly?

awesome album and decent enough price.

can't beleive this was released nearly 17 years ago.

Great album, one of the few (in my opinion) that you can listen straight through all the tracks.

CDs and DVDs. I've never had any problem with sealed items like DVDs, however, unsealed items like CDs are another matter (as I explained above).

For sure I can send the item back - and have -, but how many times must I go to the Post Office before I learn the lesson!! Suffice to say after many a trip to the Post Office I have been schooled! I'll happily continue to buy sealed items such as DVDs from them, but for anything else (particularly CDs) I'd rather look elsewhere.
