Cherub Rock is a work of pure genius! It gets me leaping around the room like an idiot! I also really like Ava Adore and Today. Good band.

Here is a great live version of Ava Adore.

I saw them at The Ryman last year in their Plainsong incarnation and it was fantastic. And so was opener and long-time crush Liz Phair.

With the exception of the brilliant Siamese Dream I've never been that keen on a lot of their albums. For me they've always been more of a great singles band than a great albums band, but that's just my opinion. I have their Best Of CD, which I enjoy and I have their Video Best Of collection on DVD too. Ava Adore is one heck of a song. I'll always love Siamese Dream though, especially Cherub Rock! :)

i def think SD-Adore <including Pisces, the soundtrack songs Drown, Eye, and The End is the Beginning is the End> are essential. they were a massive band for that 5 year period, def one of my all time favorite bands.
