    Great album, I actually prefer the softer songs (Cupid de Locke, Lily) to the more aggressive (We Only Come Out at Night).

    Those last five songs create my own little secret space to crawl/nestle into at the back of this album. Anyone feel like that about the last songs on other albums? They're dark, underneath. But covered by a surface of....i dunno, cute? lullabyish? It's too beautiful to describe. Some people consider the songs like We Only Come Out at Night, Beautiful, or Lily to be the childish, unnecessary "filler" on this album. So sadly wrong. Look again. Lily's my favorite btw...

    v meh, to each their own. But I tend to be turned off from music that ISN't angsty and juvenile.

    Meh. Just too juvenile and angsty for my tastes. Deleted.

    Still think this is the band's best album. Not much filler IMO.

    Mabye if billy kicked a few songs off and dropped the whole double album idea, Mellon Collie would probably be considered as one of the greatest alternative rock albums of all time, sadly a shitload of fillers kind of got in the way of that...
