Help the Pumpkins keep their integrity; don't buy this CD
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This CD is available. I got it through Musicland. Overall, the Perfect remixes are just like all the other Pumpkins' remixes. After a person has bought so many singles and imports and remixes she comes to realize how ruthless the music industy is, exploiting the customers by selling these CDs, marketing them as rare, only to include them in a mass produced box set a year later. The hook is that there are three new songs in the collection, and the consumer gives away another $50. I know we choose our actions, but what gives? I'm a Smashing Pumpkins admirer for a long time standing, and their music has had a great impact on my own artistic work. That is why it hurts to see such a talented group fall victim to its mangement. So Billy, and D'arcy, and James, this is your mother banging on your door in the morning to wake you up and get you realize that your work, produced as real artists (and not just pop-icons), is being dreadfully exploited by your managements complete inability to restrain from giving in to the media frenzy. (next step: you and the Backstreet Boys in concert?...)"
I'm with this guy Help them and DO NOT BUY THIS CD!

"I got this cd at the music store in the mall for a high price. They said it was VHTF and that was why i bought it. Now look at this there will be 1000's of them produced! All the management wants to do is make fans think that the cd they are buying is rare, then after all the poor suckers buy it at the high price they produce about 6 million copies so that they can get more and more and more money from the fans (what im saying is that the fans that get it when it is supposedly "RARE" is gettin screwed) So Help Them And DONT Buy This CD."
