* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Around 5 or 6 on average, dipping down to about a 2 on "Disarm" and a 4 on "Today". The EpicRocking tracks fluctuate between levels (for example "Hummer" is 3 in the verses and 5 in the choruses, and around a 2 in the final third).


''Siamese Dream'' is the second studio album by American AlternativeRock band Music/TheSmashingPumpkins. It was released through Creator/VirginRecords on July 27, 1993.

The follow-up to their debut ''Gish'', this was the album that broke them into the mainstream as a rock band, selling over 4 million copies and receiving positive reviews (which have only grown more positive as time has passed).

The band refined their sound with the album, distancing themselves from the straightforward grunge of ''Gish'' and increasing signs of influence from then-unfashionable genres like ProgressiveRock, PsychedelicRock, and HeavyMetal.

It also saw a significant growth in songwriting quality and in the confidence of the band's performances (although Corgan and Chamberlin are the only performers on much of the album; bassist D'arcy Wretzky said she didn't actually mind this much, as Corgan was able to record the bass parts more quickly than she would have been).
