New Smashing Pumpkins Video and Early Album Listen

The Smashing Pumpkins comeback album, Zeitgeist, hits stores on July 10, but it doesn't seem as hotly anticipated as Billy Corgan would like it to be. So it may not help that AOL's Spinner blog has posted the full album stream a week early; and why not, since Zeitgeist tracks have been leaking on the 'Net for weeks?

I've only given the album a very quick spin today, and it is oddly comforting to hear Corgan belting it out again. But with its straight-ahead drumming, sprinkles of synths, and lots and lots of searing guitar riffs, Zeitgeist is giving me some bad '90s flashbacks. Occasionally, however, those elements come together quite capably, such as on the first single, "Tarantula," which well balances the metal with the melodrama. The accompanying music video, which premiered today on Spinner, is also very cool to watch. Tell me what you think about the album and the video, which you can watch when you

The band has been here in Asheville for two weeks, doing a nine-show stint at a club. It's been the biggest thing to happen in Asheville's music scene for a while. I loved the 1990s SP, even though I never liked Billy Corgan. He seems like a such an arrogrant jerk. Not even a benevolent dictator, just a dictator. He's a genius, though, and he has been very nice to fans who have come across him downtown. I guess he only treats his bandmates like crap...

I love the new song and the video is kinda interesting—Billy is wearing interesting attire as always. I've really missed SP, I'm glad they're back.
