As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deals for August 2012, The Smashing Pumpkins‘ Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is on sale for only $5.
If you would like a physical copy of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the CD is available for $16.99.
Released in 1995, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness was the third album by The Smashing Pumpkins. This ginormous double-album (the CD version comes on two discs and the vinyl on three records) runs the emotional gamut from melancholy soft rock slow jams to fierce rage-fueled speed metal. Frontman Billy Corgan was once quoted as saying Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness was meant to capture the turmoil and angst he’d felt as a teenager but couldn’t articulate until adulthood. Eh, I say buy it for the catchy radio hits you remember fondly, such as “Bullet With Butterfly Wings,” “Zero,” and “Tonight, Tonight,” but love it for the lesser known (but no less rockin’) tracks you had no idea even existed. At $5 for nearly two hours of great music, you really can’t get hurt.
