MUSIC : Pre ZeitGeist Review


The Smashing Pumpkins are back! Well.. kinda'. SP long awaited new album 'ZeitGeist' has finally leaked on the Internet. I am listening to it right now, so I'll tell u what I think later after a couple of spins. The album will be officially released on July 10th 2007. Miss Sha Shinizzle wrote on her blog that there will be 5(!) different versions of the album. But I found out that there will actually be 9(!!) different versions (go here to find out). The move outraged some fans, but as we all know, we can find it on the Internet sooner or later.

Check out the cover for LP first single 'Tarantula' : -

Yes.. that is Parasite.. err.. Paris Hilton holding a BlackBerry in front of a blurred image of a mushroom cloud. What is Billy Corgan trying to say? I have no idea. Personally I think, SP is trying to tell us not to take them too seriously. Just enjoy the music and forget about the image, glamour, fame and whatever. Listen to the album and have fun.

Don't agree with me? Check out the video for 'Tarantula' (which BTW, was titled in honor of the German rock band Scorpions. Once again, fun.) A reminder.. If you have 3d glasses, go get them now.

Weird, trippy fun.

    damn. I've been deluded myself tanak tgk artwork for Tarantula single. tidaktidaktidak. this is only a freaking nightmare (btw tue gamba lps kluar jail ker? hahaha)

    But I found out that there will actually be 9(!!) different versions

    Holy shit! 9? 9???!!! gilo apo. the best option I think is to buy the standard/regular version pastue donlod jerk b-sides tue. unless, well you wanna buy that deluxe edition.

    I'm suspecting nie sumer keje giler Warner Bros. I mean, SP kan dah kluar from Virgin records to join WB that's why WB is milking them for what they worth.

    dictionary : greedy - see Warner Bros.

    ps : raser Billy pakai a modified somesort kimono laa. hahaha. last time kat rock am ring 07 pon he wore the same piece of clothing

    Compared to Gerard Way's ex-fiancee, Paris Hilton nampak macam Einstein! That's hot!

    Sha, Zack..

    Aku rasa 9 version is too much la. Tapi kalau mmg die hard fan (yg berduit) confirm akan beli semua. Sha, WB greedy? Business-minded if u asked me.

    Btw, do u guys know about the original artwork for the album being stolen? Maybe sbb tu la diaorang letak gambar Paris. Geram agaknya.. Lagipun save budget.

    Aku rasa gambar Paris tu gambar lama sbb that handbag is like.. so last year.. :)

    "..Billy pakai a modified somesort kimono laa"
