Yeah i get ya, the versatility is something else on that album, who would think that a an absolute screamer like "X.Y.U" would be followed with something light and bouncy like "We Only Come Out At Night". I used to sit down with the cassette booklet and read along with lyrics everytime, been years since i have done that.

Very hard to pick a favorite, but i think its between "1979" (one of the all time great rock songs), "Where Boys Fear To thread" (theres so many great metal(ish) songs on the album, but the evil-sounding riff just does it for me), and while i know its a big proggy, i loved the soundscapes during the quiet parts of this song "Porcelina Of The Vast Oceans", it just sounded epic to me when i was younger. "Through The Eyes Of Ruby" is an amazing song as well, that grew on me over the years to also be one of my favorites.

If I was to pick a favorite Pumpkins song though, it could be "Rhinoceros" from Gish.

Have you seen this re-release of it?

Theres a 4xLP version of it too, but it doesnt include the 64!!!! bonus tracks that the cd does or the dvd.
