The album that launched the Smashing Pumpkins career, Gish may not get quite the same love as Siamese Dream or Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness but it's just as full of guitar and drum heroics while displaying a more psychedelic sound that they ever attempted again. In a recent interview frontman Billy Corgan said that Courtney Love told him that she considered Gish to be cheating because "their first album sounded like a second album", which says a lot about Courtney Love but it's also a testament to Corgan and co's ambition and dedication to their craft. Often derided by their Gen-X peers for being too sincere or earnest, in retrospect it may have just been jealousy because any band that can debut with an album this good has a lot to be envious of.
