Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/1/94, p.124) - 3 Stars - Good- "...doesn't really sound like the compilation of rejects it actually is. In fact, it's better than a lot of albums that bands labored hard to put together...features the Pumpkins' trademark bombastic fuzz barrage..."

Spin (11/94, p.93) - Recommended - "...What's best about the record is what's best about preceding Smashing Pumpkins stuff: the cool multitracked Brian May-style guitar bits and the way these bits explode out of lacy, ephemeral sections..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/7/94, p.76) - "...what's fascinating is how the Pumpkins can sound both raw and fussily produced at the same time. For a blatant cash cow, PISCES ISCARIOT delivers some fine milk..." - Rating: B+

Q (1/95, p.263) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...If this is one chapter's leftovers, who can wait for the next?"

Alternative Press (12/94, p.110) - "...PISCES highlights a grinny side to the band which is completely unexpected...these are the playful Pumpkins we know and want to love..."

Musician (12/94, p.92) - "...Corgan shows how well the elements that drive the Pumpkins' heavier material (darkness, introspection, celebration) can work in this alternate setting..."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.54) - "[Some songs] were exquisite: the acoustics of Fleetwood Mac cover 'Landslide' and 'Starla''s psychedelia among them."

NME (Magazine) (12/24/94, p.23) - Ranked #9 in NME's list of the 10 best compilation albums of 1994.

NME (Magazine) (10/29/94, p.47) - 8 - Excellent - "...Most bands would willingly die a hideous death just to make one album half as coherent, half as inventive and half as moving as PISCES ISCARIOT. What a beautiful rip off..."
