    Go buy it. I bought the special edition with the DVD with interviews, live stuff and behind the scenes material. I watched the DVD on my lunch break and the interviews were nothing to write home about the behind the scenes and live coverage was great. It seems like Billy is trying to lighten up his image with the album artwork and the video DVD. Is anyone else picking this up?

    I'll let you know what the album's like when I listen to it tonight, FH. The single is REALLY poppy though. If it weren't for my blind devotion to all things Corgan I would have probably been leary also.

    VH1.com is/was streaming the full cd for those who want to check it out before you buy it. I was never a big Pumpkins fan (post Siamese Dream) but was pretty impressed. The whole CD sounds like the single. Very pop, but it works. I think its pretty good

    I don't get it.
    I mean the guy breaks up his band
    just to form an exact replica.
    He even found another chick to play bass
    and an Asian on guitar.
    And how does this band possibly require
    3 guitar players?
    What the hell does he think this is,
    Molly Hatchet?

    Perhaps Billy didn't want the presure of a diamond selling rock band (I believe Mellon Collie went 10X platinum) on his back anymore. Of course Zwan sounds alot like to Pumpkins. The guy who wrote 99% of the material, sang, played guitar, and produced the albums is in the new version along with IMO one of the best drummers in rock who was also in the pumpkins. Overall, I'd recomend the CD. I look forward to new albums from Zwan as well as archival stuff from the Pumpkins (the Metro show, Machina II ect.)

    Ross, are you stating that Corgan has also written 99% of Zwan's material? If so, talk about a control-freak....

    I was refering to the Smashing Pumpkins stuff but he's clearly the guy in charge of Zwan also. If I remember correctly 2-3 songs he did with one of the other guitarists, one with Paz and the title track of the CD was written by the group.

    Zwan's debut album, Mary Star Of The Sea, was released on Tuesday (January 28) and is expected to debut in the upper regions of the Billboard chart next week.

    Zwan Tour Dates (subject to change):

    March 20 - Minneapolis, MN - First Avenue (on sale now)

    March 21 - Milwaukee, WI - Rave/Eagles Ballroom (on sale February 1, 11 a.m.)

    March 22 - St. Louis, MO - The Pageant (on sale now)

    March 24 - Cleveland, OH - Agora Theatre & Ballroom (presale begins January 31)

    March 25 - Toronto, ON - Kool Haus

    March 28 - New York, NY - Hammerstein Ballroom (on sale February 1)

    -- Dave Ankers, New York
