Siamese Dream is probably their best album start to finish (though Gish is still my favorite), but Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is their most impressive. It has a few dud tracks here and there, but releasing a double cd prog rock set (yeah, I said it!) in 1995 was a bit of a risk.
Jazz is still one of those things I don’t really “get.” But I can get this. Damn, this is one of the best grooves I’ve ever heard. Miles Davis was a few decades ahead of everybody else. It’s also a good time to recommend his autobiography.
