Very un-Smashing Pumpkins, if you actually attempt to follow their music at all. They tend more to a classic rock feel with some tracks, experiment with electronic sounds in others. Their lyrics are rather philosophical, and uplifting in general, as opposed to the downer lyrics of many rock bands in the 90s. Upbeat music seems to be making a comeback lately. They've had many hits (Not the web page type!), and are appreciated by many people worldwide. Their guitar work is similarly impressive, and with three guitars, is rather hard to duplicate.
