Overview | #84: Smashing Pumpkins – “Dorian” (2014) Top Track | #84: Smashing Pumpkins – “Dorian” (2014)

I have always viewed Billy Corgan as something of a fame-whoring hack, but the Smashing Pumpkins2014 album Monuments to an Elegy was pretty decent — I gave it a fairly positive review — and I found the analog-synthesizer-painted “Dorian” to be a real highlight, and an easy pick for my Top Tracks of 2014 list.

Recommended listening:

  • Smashing Pumpkins – “Today” (1993)
  • Smashing Pumpkins – “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” (1995)
  • Smashing Pumpkins – “1979” (1995)
  • Smashing Pumpkins – “Tonight, Tonight” (1995)
  • Smashing Pumpkins – “Drum + Fife” (2014)

Also, be sure to read Stephen Thomas Erlewine’s review of Monuments to an Elegy on AllMusic if you are unfamiliar with “Dorian” or the Smashing Pumpkins.
