A rather astonishing piece of alt-rock, a marvellous achievement for a debut record. Haunting strings and mid-90's Radiohead all the way for this one; this type of thing is rarely carried off to such a high standard. The only other band I can really think of doing this at this level at the moment is As Tall As Lions, and the fact that I'm not sure which is better should be testament to this record's brilliance.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
They are set to embark on their OTR II Tour this year.
