Review: The Smashing Pumpkins – Perfect (Rock)

This review covers the rock track The Smashing Pumpkins – Perfect.

This track was released in 1998 on the album Adore.

The track starts off with a synth effect. From there, the drum kit and a subtle vocal enters the track. The vocals then take the track into the first verse.

An effect makes a brief appearance before the vocals lead the track into the first round in the main chorus. The guitars also take a greater presence in the track. This ends with a filtered drum kit.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse. The vocals also take the track into the main chorus as well. The main chorus eventually repeats. An instrumental section with a synth effect or two then leads the track out.

A positive aspect of this track is that there isn’t exactly anything that is particularly bad about this track. Ironically, there’s also nothing about this track that I thought made it stand out and be a great one either.

A problem this track has is that the transitions could definitely be improved. The first couple were fine, but after a while, I had a hard time telling whether or not it was in a verse or a chorus.

The added filters do give this track some small variety. It isn’t much and it isn’t anything to special, but it’s better than nothing in my view.

Overall, this track winds up being a pretty forgettable track. This is because there isn’t much here that makes this track stand out in any way. There’s nothing overly bad about it, but there are some smaller things that is worth noting. The filtering and added effects do give this track a small amount of variety. Unfortunately, the transitions could have used some work. Overall, it’s an OK track, but quite forgettable.
