smashingpumpkinsreissues2 Giveaway: Smashing Pumpkins Deluxe Reissues + Exclusive Lithograph

If you’re a Smashing Pumpkins fan, you’re probably aware that the band’s reissuing its first two albums: 1991′s Gish and 1993′s Siamese Dream. While standard issues of each reissue will be available for purchase, it’s really the two deluxe edition sets that whet the fan’s appetite. These suckers sport unreleased demos, alternate takes, rarities, exclusive photos, and live DVDs respective to each effort. It’s just the sort of thing you’d want under the Christmas tree, near the Menorah, or passed to you during a White Elephant. If you’re strapped for cash, however, you probably won’t want to swallow the (admittedly lean) $30 price tag.

But you’re a reader of Consequence of Sound- aren’t you? We’ve got you covered. We’re giving away not only the two deluxe reissues, but also an exclusive limited edition lithograph. Does that sound snazzy? Would that just make your week? Are these questions annoying you? Okay, good. Here’s how you can win. First, follow us on Twitter and/or Like us on Facebook. Then, in the comments below, tell us your favorite post-Machina track. That means you’ll need to start relistening to Machina II, or Zeitgeist, or the band’s latest material. You could even sweeten your entry by offering the reasoning behind your choice. Deal? Deal. *

Contest ends Tuesday, November 29th. Good luck.

If you don’t win, you can pick up your own copies of Gish and Siamese Dream come November 29th via EMI.

I’d have to say “White Spyder,” despite the fact that there are probably other songs that are much better post Machina. I don’t exactly know what it is, but I’m drawn to it. Maybe it’s how Billy Corgan sings “white spidaaahh.”

It would have to be United States from Zeitgeist.. it really gave Jimmy Chamberlain a chance to shine.. and the drum solo was wicked on the live tour :) I enjoyed the harder sound of Zeitgeist in general and this song is a great representation making Neverlost sound that much more sweet and somber

November 29, 2011 at 5:45 am

“United States” because Jimmy Chamberlain is a beast, and who doen’t like revolution? Their best post-Machina psychedelic-insanity epic yet.

i always liked wound from machina…..when i heard that i could feel the U2 influence but more important it was the first time where i felt billys sound and lyrics actually hit a point of maturity he never really had before 

November 28, 2011 at 4:23 pm

definitely A Song For a Son.  because it’s perfect.

November 28, 2011 at 6:16 am

Dross, duh.  That riff’ll melt your fucking face off.

Matt Devitt

“Bleeding the Orchid” off Zeitgeist. It has that raw Smashing Pumpkins sound I’ve come to know and love with a great accompanying melody to guide Billy’s passionate cries. I admittedly am not a huge fan of the post-Machina Smashing Pumpkins, but this track reminds me of the old dreamy sound that I love so much. 

November 25, 2011 at 4:24 pm

Most definitely A Song for A Son. The opening guitar that sounds like its almost straight of of ZoSo and it leadings into a song that’s covered from every angle from the awesome guitar rifts to haunting piano track and to top it off the lyrics are awesome and nearly embody the idea behind the Tarot. I’ve really enjoyed what Ive heard of tear garden thus far but Song for a Son jus kills it as the opener.

Very tough to pick, but I would have to say Speed Kills off of Machina 2.  It is just a hauntingly beautiful song.  I love Zeitgeist and all of TBK so far, but M2 is just amazing.

November 25, 2011 at 6:35 am

Untitled! I can’t believe nobody posted this song yet. It’s my favorite because it sounds so much like their early stuff (Gish/Siamese Dream). The best part is that they (basically Billy and Jimmy at this point) wrote this song in response to all the people complaining about how their new stuff sucked, or they couldn’t write good songs anymore, etc. They wanted to show everyone that they could still put out songs that sounded like their old stuff, they just preferred to “evolve” their music.

My fave post-Machina song right now is Freak! b/c I think it describes the times we are in now (too bad it wasn’t on Zeitgeist, lol)

Midway Nick

Wow, that’s a tough one.  I think it’s gotta be Real Love from Machina II.

My favorite post Machina song is Bring The Light

I don’t really care about winning the set, but I think some of Billy Corgan’s best work is actually post-original lineup, & I love getting to explain to would-be detractors why I love the (post Machina work) so much.  My favorite post-Machina song is actually from his solo record TheFutureEmbrace.  I love the sounds that he experimented w/ on that album, and my favorite is “Now (and then)”.  It’s a beautiful melody that would have really fit in well on Adore (in fact there’s a youtube video of him playing it solo acoustic in Italy) If you ever get a chance you should try re-listening to that album, or even do what I do, is play the songs at home by yourself and see how they sound on more conventional instruments (I play the bass lines to it)

my favorite post-Machina track is Gossamer.  I saw them play it at the aragon on the “This is the last tour we’ll play the classics on” tour, and as soon as the guitar rift kicked in, I thought “I’d be ok with never hearing the old songs live anymore if all the new stuff sounds like this.”  Unfortunatly the rest of the new stuff doesn’t sound like gossamer.

November 23, 2011 at 11:28 pm

“Stellar” from 2007′s ZEITGEIST… This song is not only heartfelt and driven, but technically baffling, a testament to Corgan’s guitar prowess and Jimmy’s skill behind the kit. I always enjoy hearing the interplay between the three guitars (panned left, right, and center) as they bounce off of each other in a call and response fashion… Jimmy is a human octopus here, bringing forth a passionate force twisting around and within guitar, bass and haunting organ melodies. At the climax when Corgan sings, “Withstood a thought so sad, I had to laugh…” I always laugh a little, with that sense of recognition for such a crushing feeling of sadness which life can sometimes bring… This song lifts me from the depths of despair, from the gutter to the stars! A truly stellar tune.

I’m going brand new!!! The song Oceania from the forthcoming album is so hauntingly beautiful with its opening mellotron bit, then coming in with a restatement of the melody on guitar starts you off on this amazing journey.  Its poignant and beautiful lyrics hit you like only a Smashing Pumpkins song can.  Then it moves into this movement showcasing Jeff on the slide all the while the audience hasn’t realized it’s been 8 minutes!!! I haven’t seen an audience so entranced by a brand new song in forever.  It’s a song meant to be played live but I can’t wait to hear the studio version! Long Live the Mighty SP!

“Slow Dawn” – first track of the 1st EP from M2. it just sounds so raw and fresh for the band at that point, yet, it’s like an homage to their earlier days w/ the drone sounds and garage/rehearsal space-vibes. it really kicked all of the fancy, schmancy production and schtickery (i.e. the “Glass and the Ghost Children” saga, the “Adore” image, etc.) to the curb and presented TSP as a simpler band, something that I really appreciated while the ’88-’00 band was on the decline.

“Doomsday Clock” from Zeitgeist is a jam.  That is all.

Patrick Johnson

Love the b-side “Zeitgeist”

Michael Minner

“Stand Inside Your Love” off Machina is a killer track. The crushing waves of distorted guitar, Jimmy’s superb drumming, the beautiful e-bow solo and Billy’s lyrics/vocals add up to a quintessential Smashing Pumpkins song. One of my all-time favorites!

Quasar! yeah I’m going for the new!

Gerald Meyer

Owata. It’s just a great song.

November 23, 2011 at 6:45 pm

Bleeding the Orchid from Zeitgeist. I think it’s dark and beautiful just like the pumpkins classic stuff.  

geo folkers
November 23, 2011 at 5:44 pm

There are really to many to make a real choice but I’ll say “Superchrist”. It’s adrenalin, it’s muscle, it’s an electrical shock and an ear orgasm!

November 23, 2011 at 5:34 pm

“Let Me Give the World to You” off of Machina II. That song is definitely the hit song that never was, left off Adore and then Machina.

November 23, 2011 at 5:21 pm

Good questions. I think that I have to go with “Lucky 13″ from Machina II.  Jimmy’s drums on that one are simply fantastic, but it’s too bad that it seems unfinished.

“I’m jungle-drummed out, man”

Smashing Pumpkins just means Billy Corgan right? As of their current Chamberlain-less lineup, I’m going to have to go ahead and call Zwan more “pumpkins” than the pumpkins as they are now. And thus. My favorite post-machina contribution from Corgan & Co. would have to be Zwan’s cover of Iron Maiden’s “Number of the Beast” from the Corgan-produced Spun Soundtrack. Reasoning being not the amazingly intimate stripped-down version of my most beloved ‘Maiden track, but because Billy let Matt Sweeney take over on vocals, something that must have been difficult for someone with Corgan’s legendary ego. Notable mentions: Slow Dawn, Blue Skies Bring Tears, Glass’s Theme and Real Love

I’d have to pick That’s The Way (My Love Is) off Zeitgeist. Although the full band version rocks pretty hard, when it’s stripped down, it’s revealed to be one of Billy Corgan’s best bittersweet love songs.

Cam Lindsay

“That’s The Way (My Love Is)” – it’s one of a few tracks that was worthy of being included on an earlier album.
