After a re-listen, I am prepared to state that Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness does not hold up. For something they tried to sell as the return of the concept album, it’s just an incredibly disjointed collection of songs. There are enough highlights that they could have assembled a pretty good normal-length album, though it would have still felt disjointed.
It’s just so weird that Gish and Siamese Dream, which both felt like coherent works, led up to this.
