Listen to This Album When You’re:
Looking for a mellow grunge album.

It’s pretty meh to me, cool colours but nothing special.
Want to Own on Vinyl?:
Siamese Dream is one of those albums I’ve had in my library for years but never really gotten around to listening to, thanks to Richard Sandlin I was forced to. I really enjoyed it, I can see bands like Thee Oh Sees and Autolux being heavily influenced by this album. It’s a good mix of hard hitting rock and ballad sounding tracks. Today, Soma, and Space Boy have got to be my favourite tracks. Smashing Pumpkins have flown under the radar for me for too long, I’m excited to dig into their discography.
