This surprise release is a great way for Billy Corgan to start off ’08. After a satisfying but questionable release last year with Zeitgeist, this fresh EP focuses on the acoustic side of things. Casting aside the gloom, American Gothic instead is filled with sunny, crisp tunes that beg for repeated listens. The new direction borrows heavily from Corgan’s days in Zwan, but indicates that there are still areas he has not yet traversed. This release has single handedly restored my faith in the Pumpkins future. I give it a solid B.
