tHe sMasHinG pUmPKinS  "Cherub Rock"--Es una canción y sencillo de la banda estadounidense de rock alternativo The Smashing Pumpkins perteneciente al disco Siamese Dream y publicado el 13 de julio de 1993. Existen dos versiones de este single. Esta canción fue nominada a el premio Grammy a la mejor interpretación de hard rock en 1994. "Cherub Rock" fue una de las últimas canciones que se escribieron para el álbum, y la letra habla acerca de la percepción de Corgan acerca de la comunidad de indie rock y los grandes medios.1 La canción es interpretada en afinación estándar con una octava de G sostenido en el 11vo traste, el mismo que es usado por la banda en canciones como "Drown", "Tristessa" y "Starla". El prominente solo de guitarra fue logrado grabando la guitarra en dos pistas distintas, las cuales se hicieron correr simultáneamente, con la velocidad de una ligeramente alterada. Su grabación se caracteriza por contener la técnica del "overdubbing", influenciado por los géneros del shoegazing y el arena rock de los años 70.

+8R014V I read every word you wrote, because you contribute great points.  I've been recording and mixing music for about 25 years. I started on a 4 track reel-to-reel that I commandeered from my dad in 1989 (he's still not happy with me about that), and I still use it and prefer it over the newer digital formats for the initial recording because you get that natural tape compression. But, even with that, tape wears out, good tape is getting harder to find, and is becoming more expensive...so you don't want to do a lot of unnecessary tracks, so I've always been into keeping it simple with few overdubs. Not to mention, more overdubs means more tedious cutting and splicing of tape. So, with that said, my love for the Pumpkins records is strange for me... Because I usually prefer albums produced in a raw live setting with few takes and overdubs as opposed to grandiose productions. I actually usually prefer a band's demos over their studio recordings, in fact. But I agree that the Pumpkins music was heavily rooted in the numerous overdubs format simply because of the way Billy liked to build big sounding tracks instead of just simply writing and recording songs. But, the Pumpkins were so solid live, that I think they could have translated well into a Steve Albini raw production style with select songs. As for the vocal effects on Siamese, Butch didn't really use anything out of the way of the ordinary reverb/chorus/delay effects to give the vocals as wet and as broad of a sound as he was giving to the instruments. Flood, though not to the same extent, also used some of the same effects on the vocals on Mellon Collie. But, no one really puts dry vocals on a record. The biggest difference I notice between the two albums in terms of vocals was that Butch didn't put the vocals as up front in the mix as Flood did. Butch almost seems to make vocals appear as another instrument in the mix as opposed to the main focal point of the mix. No different than when you listen to Nirvana's Nevermind. The thing I prefer about Siamese Dream (and Gish) over Mellon Collie is Siamese is a bottom end-heavy record. The kick drum, the floor toms, the bass, and the lower frequencies of the guitar really stand out....as though 100Hz to 500Hz was eq'd up just a tad in the mix. On Mellon Collie the instruments were eq'd a little more flat....again....probably to allow the vocals to stand out a bit more. With all of that said.... I think both are solid records. Both have their elements that separate the two which are clearly the difference in production measures taken by Vig and Flood. And both have their similar elements, which is probably because Corgan was co producer on both records and carried some of the techniques and elements from Siamese to Mellon Collie.

+Barackmed Alibama you're probably right about the vocals just sitting further back on Siamese Dream, but to my ears it's always sounded like the vocals were widened a little bit. I feel like Billy's voice on Mellon Collie sounded smaller, even if it was more up front. I know that they used an Eventidd Harmonizer a lot on Billy's vocals for Siamese Dream, so maybe that is why it sounds a bit wider, and is possible a big contributing factor as to why I felt like his vocals sounded more produced on Siamese Dream and a little more naked on Mellon Collie.

Jimmy Chamberlin > Every other drummer from the 90's put together.
Report spam or abuse
+Stuart Colman Jimmy is not better than Danny Carey. They are both great drummers in their own right. Danny's ability to play odd time signatures with absolute perfection is what has made him so recognized. Not to mention... Danny exploring drumming from other cultures and utilizing them to expand Tool's already insane rhythms. Jimmy's ability to use jazz style playing in a heavy rock band is what made him so recognized, and his snare work is above and beyond anyone else I've ever heard in rock music  But... If you guys must truly know who the best drummer is from the 90's until now...and possibly all time, it's Josh Freese. He's not only been a member of The Vandals since 1989, but he's also toured with many many many many prominent bands/artists, and his session drumming has also been recorded on about 500 records. There's not a rhythm style that Josh can't play.

Dimensiones ocultas del ser, un espejismo que conduce a lo evidente, a lo real. Todo pasa, el tiempo, la felicidad, la tristeza, la ingenuidad, el enamoramiento. El simple hecho de buscar el sentido de la existencia es tan obvio que nadie cae en cuenta de la magnitud de este cuestionamiento, sólo viven por vivir, no saben para qué viven, se van inventando motivos para darle sentido a su respirar diario. ¿Y si todo el sacrificio, todo el trabajo, todo lo que está haciendo para tener una vida mejor resultara al final inútil ya que lo realmente importante se dejó a un lado por las banalidades convencionales y nada enriquecedoras? El sentido de la vida es la conciencia de saber que no tiene sentido, ya, no hay que buscarlo. Disfruta cada instante, siempre es el último.

Report spam or abuse
I'd say it is more of a shoegazey wall of sound . . . not grunge. Now, MBV's Loveless has vocals buried deep in the mix and it is awesome! I prefer vocals to be part of the mix and not right on top and in your face. 
Report spam or abuse
+Nicholas Pankau I agree. Vocals placed deeper in the mix presents the voice as another instrument, instead of an upfront focal point. Kind of the difference between singing and humming. With them presented more as an instrument, you're not so concerned with the actual lyrics as you are with how it fills in with the other instruments. That's what I really liked about the early to mid 90's music. it was more about the mood and flow to a particular song than it was about the in your face vocals and cheesy predictable lyrics as were prominent in the 80's.

+Stuart Colman " Alice in Chains were formerly "Alice n' Chainz" and were a hair metal band that jumped on the grunge train when it began to buzz in Seattle. " You'd be wrong. Alice 'N Chains was a glam band that Layne fronted prior to joining a funk band prior to meeting Jerry, Mike, and Sean. After which they used the name Alice In Chains. Alice In Chains as we know them never did hair metal or glam. They started out doing straight up metal. For evidence of that, just listen to their first album "Facelift". Nothing hair metal about that record.

I know that every generation says "the music back then was better" but with rock it's true. If you turn on a pop station 95% of the music you will hear will be from this year,the other 5% stuff from last year. The reason for this is that current pop music is consistently on par or better than what preceded it so there's not room for the old stuff even if the old stuff was also considered good. But turn on a rock station and it's like a third of the music is from the 90's (25-15yrs old), another third is from the 2000's (15-5 yrs old) which indicates that while new rock music is always coming out, the majority is viewed as sub par to what was out before it. While 90's bands will probably get less airplay as time goes on, I'm pretty sure that in 5 years we'll still hear some SP, Nirvana, etc on the radio, but I know we will not be hearing Fun's "We Are Young" or the Lumineers "Ho Hey"

The Smashing Pumpkins have a unique sound, not unlike Pearl Jam or any other band for that matter, but "Grundge" as I understand it, is more of a regional claim to fame.........If it weren't for the accolade, I might consider this group as one from the Pacific Northwest, but I would like to think of them as "Hometown Heroes" even though I am from a suburb of Chicago. They have some powerful blends and great lyrics, a sound of their very own. Timeless masterpieces that will rock throughout time and history. Put it this way, "The Smashing Pumpkins" would be great guests from a distant but familiar land to anybody who might consider themselves "Grundge". I say "Consider" because to me it wasn't about the music so much, as it was a label, stereotype, or generational thing, not unlike "The British Invasion". See, all of the people that made it out of that "Scene" we're above all individuals just trying to cut a record label or something. Trying to get their message out there to anyone who would listen. They were far more interesting individually than people might think, I imagine that it was nice to be part of something for most but for the few I am assuming that "Grundge" in and of itself, if it was anything, was kind of the Caboose at the end of the train whence it came through. Not to be outdone by "The Smashing Pumpkins", but they were a great compliment and might have had a little more musicality when considering their range and type of instruments played. I would hate to be a judge at any "Battle of the Bands" with anyone during that time, remember it was a great time for music in general they are all winners. In fact, it takes a lot of courage just to pick up an instrument and try to play or sing for one person let alone 1 Hundred Thousand!!!!!!!
