Is it way too long? Probably. But the Pumpkins third effort sure has its moments of greatness. Any album that has 28 tracks and runs well over two hours is likely to be in need of some trimming, and I would argue this is no exception. However, instead of focusing on the weaker songs of … Continue reading Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time – #487: The Smashing Pumpkins – Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995)
