Billy Corgan said that he wanted to create an album that would be the ’90s version of “The Wall”. He decided to use different producers than the Pumpkins had previously worked with to create a very different sound than 1993’s Siamese Dream. The album ventured from hard rock to synth-based to even a full orchestra. Supported with brilliant videos, the Pumpkins would never reach creative heights like this again. This album gave us “Tonight, Tonight” and “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”.
Fun Fact: Billy Corgan owns a tea shop called Madame ZuZu in Highland Park, Illinois. He has had it since 2012.
