Background

After the Smashing Pumpkins disbanded in 2000, Corgan and Chamberlin reunited for the short lived supergroup Zwan, featuring members of Slint, Chavez, and A Perfect Circle. The group released one album, Mary Star of the Sea, before dissolving in 2003. Chamberlin then formed The Jimmy Chamberlin Complex, while Corgan released a solo album, TheFutureEmbrace. On the day of that album's release in June 2005, Corgan announced his plans to "renew and revive" the Smashing Pumpkins. Chamberlin soon announced that he would be rejoining the band, and the two began living together in Scottsdale, AZ in November 2005, writing and rehearsing new songs. Within three weeks of practicing, the pair decided they had recaptured the sound of the band and decided to record a new album.[2] For other uses, see Supergroup (disambiguation). ...

Recording

With the other two band members absent, Corgan and Chamberlin decided to record the album alone. After the songs were finalized, Jimmy Chamberlin laid down all of the drum tracks. Notably, the drums for the ten-minute epic "United States" were recorded in one take. After the drums were complete, Chamberlin began the process of interviewing prospective touring band members, while Corgan went about recording the guitar, bass, keyboard, and vocal parts.[3] Chamberlin described the recording sessions as a "long laborious process to greatness".[2]


Development and promotion

In early December, four alleged demos from the sessions were released on file-sharing networks, though these were revealed to be a hoax. Spin later reported that they were recordings by British band Amy Blue, where the band's frontman, Simon Chatterman, said that his band had been "toying with the idea of pissing off a few file sharers" and "thought it would be funny to upload [their] EP as the Smashing Pumpkins and [with titles] from Corgan's poetry book, Blinking with Fists."[4] Spin is a music magazine that reports on all the music that rocks.

The Smashing Pumpkins performed live for the first time since 2000 on May 22, 2007 in Paris, France. There, the band unveiled new members Jeff Schroeder and Ginger Reyes, who took over rhythm guitarist and bassist duties, respectively.[9] Lisa Harriton completed the line-up on keyboards and vocals. The first leg of the tour visited music festivals throughout Europe, including Pinkpop and Rock am Ring, and included several solo appearances as well. The band debuted nine songs off of Zeitgeist at these appearances in sets that blended old and new.

The American leg kicked off with a sold-out, nine-day residency at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina, on June 23, 2007.

Release and reception

Zeitgeist debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, selling 145,000 copies in its first week.[11] It also reached the top spots on Billboard's Internet Albums and Rock Albums charts in its first week, and hit the top 10 in Canada (#1), New Zealand (#1), the U.K. (#4), Germany (#7), Australia (#7), and other countries.[12] The Billboard 200 is a ranking of the 200 highest-selling music albums and EPs in the United States, published weekly by Billboard magazine. ...

Zeitgeist has received mixed reviews, indicated by a score of 59/100 on Metacritic.[13] Some negative criticism of the album has stemmed from the absence of half of the original lineup, with Pitchfork Media's Rob Mitchum suggesting the name was revived for "cash or attention or both."[14] Q's Paul Rees commented that "at least half of Zeitgeist is made up of grinding songs that amount to riffs, pummelling and little else," and that Zeitgeist's emotional range is "limited and wearing," but praised Chamberlin's drumming, stating that he "remains one of the most powerful drummers in rock."[15] Metacritic is a website that collates reviews of music albums, games, movies, TV shows, DVDs and books. ...

However, the album has garnered higher marks from other sources, such as ratings of 4/5 from Rolling Stone, The Village Voice, and Uncut. Positive reviews have downplayed the personnel changes, pointing out Corgan's dominance over songwriting and music throughout the band's history.

Artwork

Leak of album artwork

On May 6, 2007, four photographs of album art were leaked on Netphoria, a Smashing Pumpkins fan message board. The band management soon released a statement to the media stating the photos are "stolen goods" that should not be posted on the Internet.[17] Later in the week, the alleged thieves were identified as Joshua Kuhl and Simon Brown, both 21. The Chicago Police announced that 39 photographs and three guitar picks were stolen, although only 4-6 of those photographs were leaked online. The two were held on $100,000 bond.[18] Asked about the band's predicament, a Chicago Police officer commented, "They were pissed."[19] The alleged thieves have since been released from incarceration, sentenced to community service and probation. is the 126th day of the year (127th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Album cover

On May 16, 2007 the band's official website published an official album cover made by Obey Giant graphic designer and illustrator Shepard Fairey: a red, black and white illustration of a drowning Statue of Liberty, positioned in front of the sun that is setting/rising. Fairey, whose credits include creating anti-war posters and the poster art for the feature film Walk the Line, commented on the album cover: May 16 is the 136th day of the year (137th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era. ... André the Giant Has a Posse, now Obey Giant, is a street art movement created by Shepard Fairey as an experiment in Phenomenology. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Walk the Line is an Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy Award-winning film chronicling the life of Johnny Cash, American country singer. ...

I think global warming is an issue that is currently relevant, time sensitive, and a symptom of the shortsightedness of the U.S. As a broader metaphor, the drowning Statue of Liberty, a revered icon of the U.S., symbolizes the eminent demise of many of the ideals upon which the nation was founded. Civil liberties, freedom of speech, privacy, etc. have been decreasing since 9/11. The sun in the image could either be setting or rising and this ambiguity shows that there is still hope to turn things around... The U.S. is the dominant global force. When things are going wrong in the U.S. they are probably going wrong around the world. I think this image conveys both the U.S. situation and its larger global implications.

Fairey also remarked "I use red frequently because it is a visually powerful, emotionally potent color. Red gets people's attention. In this case there is the added possibility that the red liquid could be blood, giving it an even more sinister sense of foreboding."[21] Billy Corgan commented, "Like a great artist can do, Shepard had summed up very simply a lot of complex themes. He also used the type font from our very first single, and I asked him about it and he had no idea. He was just on point."[22] Tristessa is a song by The Smashing Pumpkins (known at the time as simply Smashing Pumpkins). ...
