Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is the third studio album by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released on October 23, 1995 in the United Kingdom and a day later in the United States on Virgin Records. Produced by frontman Billy Corgan with Flood and Alan Moulder, the 28-track album was released as a two-disc CD and triple LP. The album features a wide array of styles, as well as greater musical input from bassist D'arcy Wretzky and second guitarist James Iha.

Although the artistic scope of the album is immense, the Smashing Pumpkins flourish in such an overblown setting. Corgan's songwriting has never been limited by conventional notions of what a rock band can do, even if it is clear that he draws inspiration from scores of '70s heavy metal and art rock bands

Produced by Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan with Flood and Alan Moulder, the twenty-eight-track album was released as a two-disc CD and triple LP. Led by the single Bullet with Butterfly Wings, the record debuted at number one on the Billboard charts, the first and only such occurrence for the group

Billy responded that the song was called ‘Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness’. This version is in a different key and has a wildly different, full-band arrangement. Some time after moving into his Victorian house in Chicago, Billy re-arranged the song for piano

So Mellon Collie is a Smashing Pumpkins record that just so happens to be 28 songs in length, stunning in both its stylistic range and overall excellence. This is perhaps the only Smashing Pumpkins record where they acted like an actual band rather than Corgan and his resentful charges. Mellon Collie's remarkable breadth is the best indication of Corgan's ability to let loose.

The Smashing Pumpkins’ sophomore release, Siamese Dream, brokered the Chicago rockers’ commercial breakthrough, but also showed they’d moved well beyond the limitations imposed by grunge. However, while Siamese Dream was undeniably a pivotal record, it merely hinted at what the band would go on to achieve with their epic third album, Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. Simply put, Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness was Billy Corgan and company’s magnum opus. Even with al. ock at its mid-90s height, Corgan understood that Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness needed widespread airplay to impact globally, so he ensured the album also included some of his band’s tastiest singles.

Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness (Remastered). Take the first song "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. A gorgeous piano song that perfectly opens the album. I find this song to be complimentary to the next song "Tonight, Tonight.

This pressing sounds fantastic! Open and wide soundstage. Instruments are detailed and crisp. Overdriven parts pack a punch and the quiet passages are delicate and seem to sparkle. Outstanding Master. Packaging is very nice as well. Super pleased with this.

Is it really that hard to reissue this? Come on Billy! I wanna hear this amazing album on vinyl, with this tracklist, but not for $200-400!

I just got my copy a few months ago. Brand new. No surface noise problems at all like some have reported, so it must be fixed! It sounds FANTASTIC!!! Great pressing!!! I have original pressings of all SP LP's except this, and I'm pretty happy with having this in my collection!
CrazyDemon
Just got my hands on the 4LP EU-Version and while I stil find this one too expensive (I really don't need this fancy deluxe stuff) the pressing quality and sound of the remaster is just awesome. Though I must admit, that the album has lost (to me) some of the magic over time. The album is just too long and there are definitely some filler that I don't really need. My favorite album will always be siamese dream.
Oghmaghma
Hi folks. Please give me an advice - which option sounds better? Wanna to get it on physical media (CD, vinyl - LPs 2012-2014 with the exception of mega expensive vinyl first pressing)
Hellstaff
Why not just get the CD and the 2014 vinyl box?

I just got the repress of 2012, USA version of the The Smashing Pumpkins ‎– Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness 4x LP Vinyl Reissue.https://www.discogs.com/release/4082874I got it off ebay; initially told it was the EU/UK version. Ah, well ..... As all have said, beautiful vinyl, nice packaging. For Zero, i do her the IGD that many others have fedback about.However, it is ONLY in the penultimate 30 seconds, when Billy Corgan is screaming his vocals - that i hear the IGD / distortion bit. The last part of the song, the last line when he sings the line "She's my one and only" , that sounds Perfect, with NO IGD ! ... It is my understanding that, if there is IGD, it should get worse closer to the label the stylus goes, or remains the same, not get better. So, how come the vocals in the last line - sang 'acapella' with no backing guitars - sounds great with no distortion, whereas the earlier vocals are distorted ? is it because of the loud guitars affecting the vocals and hence the grooves ? or, because it is mastered 'hot'/'loud' ?Does that make sense ?And, yes - my TT and cartridge and stylus are properly aligned and tuned, etc. - other records with minimal dead wax have no issues.Sorry , i know my description is not very technical ! . Thanks in Advance.

I agree with you. I got the 2012 vinyl reissue of "Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness" this year from Amazon.com. I like this album, it makes me feel like I'm in a blank storybook that I could make my dreams & nightmares come true.I have my record player to play this album & I enjoyed it from beginning to end. There are some skips on my copy, but that's OK. The rest of the other side of the vinyl is good, no surface noise as well. I like to get that crisp clear sound of this 2012 vinyl reissue.This is a double album, so on the CD is 2 discs (on the 2012 reissue, it's 5 discs, 1 DVD & includes a decoupage kit) & the 2012 vinyl reissue is 4xLP being pressed on 180g vinyl (while the 1996 vinyl pressing, it's a 3xLP with a rearranged track order with 2 bonus tracks). The concept of this album is day & night entitled: "Dawn To Dusk" (Disc 1) & "Twilight To Starlight" (Disc 2).I highly recommend this album, because it's a masterpiece of the 90's. Thanks.

I just got the repress of 2012, USA version. I got it off ebay; initially told it was the EU/UK version. Ah, well ..... As all have said, beautiful vinyl, nice packaging.

Hi, is this copy still available? And how much would you be asking for it?

Received this from a seller who mistook it for a '98 repress; I was bummed initially, but this is probably one of the best unofficial pressings out there. It's up there w/ my u/o copy of "Songs for the Deaf!" The sound could very well be hit or miss, but other than side D being slightly poppy, I think it sounds marvelous! Unsure of the source, but it's surprisingly lush & dynamic. Fitting 3 discs into a double gatefold sleeve is a bit awkward (whole release issue?), but the packaging is exceptionally convincing if it weren't for the lack of numbers/white space in corner; even the booklet appears to be first-rate. If you come across this for a reasonable price, don't pass it up!

I think I should buy the masters and repress this

Side A,B,D (noise) Side C, E and F, (perfect sound) have you the same problem ?....... this edition is interesting because there are Twoo inedit songs (not in the official reissue). I am happy because on the reissue, there is not the official cover... ¨Normal price for this bootleg (55 euros)

So, I bought this because I'm not going to fork out $300-500. I think it sounds good. I think the original CD sounded bigger, thicker, and had more dynamic. The vinyl itself is nice and pretty clean. But the mastering is clearly digital and definitely is colder than the original mastering job. My impression listening to it is that the engineer was pushing track pronouncement but lost some of the muck that made the original piles of big muffs sound awesome. So the separation of instruments is nice, but you're losing something. Just my two cents.The reality is, format/media aside, original masters are going to sound better 95% of the time because they were conceived when the album itself was conceived and therefore be more in line with the sound the artist was going for when they made the music. The mastering tech matches the engineering and mixing tech. It's called production unity, and it's the most important element of judging the assembly of an album in my opinion.

Weird. My copy sounds phenomenal. You seem to be making a lot of assumptions and speculating about many things, but I can't imagine how anyone can listen to the 2014 release of this box and think it sounds remotely cold or digital. It's one of the most velvety, dreamy and incredible sounding records I've ever played.

I own the repress of 2012The packaging is top and the sound is there and there ...If anyone can tell me the difference between the Repress USA and the Europe?Because Matrix numbers are the same

Difference is in copyright information on the apple.USA: 2012 Virgin Records America, Inc....UK: 2012. The copyright in this sound...

Waited MONTHS to find a good deal on this one. Found a steal on Ebay for £63. Considering its difficult to find this for any less than £90 in the UK I was suspicious. I was aware that some pressings of this have issues so was listening anxiously anticipating some sound issues but there wasn't any to my relief!This is a beautifully sounding pressing with barely any surface noise. Porcelina sounds stunning. Great dynamics. The package itself is gorgeous. The aesthetics and artwork is great. Only thing i'll say is that Corgan's writings can be quite cringey at times in one of the booklets.
Grokinos
I do not see any particular problem in my copy...... petty, that this is excluded from the marketplace !!!!

Someone have an idea of ​​the date of this pressing ? ? it's a bootleg ? Thank you
SadLendy
So I'm guessing this is a third pressing from the "original" sources. A friend of mine recently sold one of the first ten numbered copies. There didn't seem to be much if any difference between my copy aside from the stamped number. Pressing debates can become quite convoluted but should consider production methods. The two copies I've heard sound great but a tad "murky" as some sides exceed 18-22 minutes. I'm curious to hear the four LP version but the alignment of "Dawn" to "Starlight" labels must be off.

Is there anyway of telling this version from the original 2012 release just by looking at the box? My local record store has a sealed copy and I really want it, but I'm afraid of getting the botched version. Would you think that since it's been around five years that those old copies should most likely be replaced by this better version?

Ask them when they got it in. Mine is the 14/15 release and it also had an additional barcode sticker on the bottom. Maybe that's an indicator?
