Citizen Corgan

For Corgan, I suspect, it's a punk (or maybe new wave) gesture to revel in humiliating sounds, and when he confronts this--love as "Shame"--he creates, amidst the downer party, the album's most beautiful song, the first subtle triumph of his marauding career. Guitar pitches distort, the beat swoons--this number is the lurching mirror chamber Corgan means all of the album to be. As for the rest, well, you'll hear the best of it on the radio soon enough. I'm just waiting for Corgan to release the greatest-hits album that negotiators shuttling between Dayton and Oslo have agreed will get him out of his much bemoaned contract with Virgin one more album down the road. The king is better off pinned up in his castle than riding his night mare cross the blasted countryside.
