Double Album ‘CYR’ By THE SMASHING PUMPKINS

29 November 2020

Band: THE SMASHING PUMPKINS
Album: CYR – the band’s 11th LP
Released: 27 November 2020

NME says: “It’ll be interesting to see where The Smashing Pumpkins frontman goes with his next magnum opus. But in ‘CYR’ Corgan has undoubtedly created the “contemporary record” he so craved; it’s far better than anything Corgan produced when he was running with the Pumpkins name on his own. It’s also amazing that after all the bad blood and messy break ups, he’s more adept at penning an accessible tune than he’s ever been.”
Full review here. Score: 3/5.

Billy Corgan: “I got sick of making music that people kept telling me didn’t sound contemporary. So I took that on and I was like, ‘OK I’m gonna make a contemporary
music record, I don’t care what it takes’.”

Turn Up The Volume: Not bad at all, Billy. But not as good as your classic double
one Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, released 25 years ago, 24 October 1995.”

Key singles: Ramona / Wyttch / The Colour Of Love
