About this album

Mary Star of the Sea is the only album by American alternative rock band Zwan, It was released on January 28, 2003. “Honestly” and “Lyric” were released as singles. The album is named both for the Blessed Virgin Mary, from whom Billy Corgan claimed to find comfort and guidance, and for the Catholic church in Key West, Florida where he spent time during Zwan’s early rehearsals. Corgan announced the band’s dissolution seven months after the album’s release, which he later attributed to internal conflict. It is a generally upbeat pop-rock/alternative rock album, driven by melodic basslines, flashy drumming, and high guitars coverage.

    Nah, your insane. Zeitgeist is a pretty decent record for pumpkins catalogue.

    I haven't listened to this album in about 5 years so I won't comment on it. However Zeitgeist is not only the worst Smashing Pumpkins album.... but in my opinion one of the worst albums ever.

    one of the best Albums of the early 00s. doesn't hold a candle to earlier Pumpkins....but amazing in other's too bad they didn't make it past this Album.....though in Fairness, the new output from billy sounds very similar to this. thats just my opinion...I might be

    Better than Zeitgeist, but not so good as Machina.

    that's just retarded to say, Liam. Zeitgeist had a few good tunes that were absolutely trashed by the production. This album, on the other hand, is well crafted, catchy, ambitious, and still sounds great nearly 10 years later.

    Zeitgeist isnt the best, but it kicks MSotS's ass.

    Because he hates the other members of the band. He really should release all the Djali Zwan shit, it's not as if he's got anything better to do.

    way better then Zeitgeist... why is Billy Corgan trying to erase anything Zwan related from existance?

    I agree with a lot of people here: this album is way better than Zeitgeist.

    Honestly... both Zwan and the new Zeitgeist are good albums. But I wouldn't compare the two. One is trying to be an "indie" album and the other was made by some Heavy Metal Machine.

    STILL way better than Zeitgeist! and of course you can compare them. they're two rock albums put out by two rock bands both fronted by Billy Corgan. same drummer too. they're very similar. but one is way better than the other.

    Much better than Zeitgeist, no question about that. I love the sunny vibe of this album.
