Quoted from jibmums:
Queens of the Stone Age, Lullabies To Paralyze and Songs for The Deaf
and I know I'm gonna take shit for this one, but it's a great album:
Hole, Celebrity Skin
Are you a Pumpkin's fan at all? Most people like that album for a reason, Courtney Love didn't write it, despite her 40/40% split with Corgan on the credits, along with their guitarist 20%. When you have an uneven royalty split like that, you know how things are really functioning behind the scenes.
It is no secret Corgan was seeing her, even while Kurt was still alive (he had already filed for a divorce), and Corgan wrote and produced most of that album, as well as other songs, for her while they were dating and together for several years.
You can hear really distinct trademark Pumpkins/Corgan-style choruses and verses in those songs. Remove Love's voice and replace with Corgan's mentally and in some instances, it is a straight-up Pumpkin's song. And he is such a control freak, there is no way in hell he didn't do a lot of it himself. I'd be willing to bet he even recorded a lot of the instruments, but didn't list himself on the credits, like on Siamese Dream.
Nothing wrong with liking that album though, even if you aren't a pumpkins fan. Billy Corgan sucks singing live, and in honestly, I always looked past his singing on albums cause the music was good, his voice is grating to me. His mixing of his vocals in a similar manner to My Bloody Valentine and use of a dynamic microphone instead of a traditional condenser for vocals certainly helped the recordings to highlight the music.
BTW, QofSA, great album there. Under-rated band.
