Smashing Pumpkins – Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995)
An album that lends credence to my theory of 1995 being music’s finest hour.
Note the spectacularly unconventional opening title track; the rockers rock, the ballads are gorgeous, and Muzzle would be in my top 10 songs.
At 2+ hours, it tapers somewhat, but I admire the ambition.
A career peak & an essential double LP by any yardstick.
