Aeroplane Flies High [Deluxe CD/DVD] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Aeroplane Flies High contains all five singles -- "Bullet with Butterfly Wings," "1979," "Zero," "Tonight, Tonight," "Thirty-Three" -- from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness in a box set shaped like a 45 single carrying case from the '60s. Though the set contains all of the B-sides from the five singles, the running order isn't quite the same as the original releases; for example, in its original release, "Butterfly Wings" only had two B-sides, but it is augmented for covers of new wave artists like the Cars, Blondie, and Missing Persons. In total, the box set has more songs than Mellon Collie, and, by and large, the quality of the music is quite ...

The Aeroplane Flies High contains all five singles -- "Bullet with Butterfly Wings," "1979," "Zero," "Tonight, Tonight," "Thirty-Three" -- from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness in a box set shaped like a 45 single carrying case from the '60s. Though the set contains all of the B-sides from the five singles, the running order isn't quite the same as the original releases; for example, in its original release, "Butterfly Wings" only had two B-sides, but it is augmented for covers of new wave artists like the Cars, Blondie, and Missing Persons. In total, the box set has more songs than Mellon Collie, and, by and large, the quality of the music is quite strong. Occasionally, Billy Corgan's prolificacy gets the better of him; there are a number of songs where his reach exceeds his grasp, and he doesn't quite come up with an engaging melody to match his detailed production. At other times, his musical experimentations catch hold, such as when he delves into jazz or orchestrated pop. Still, all of these pleasures are ones that are only of interest to dedicated Smashing Pumpkins fans who already know Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness inside and out. A casual fan will have a hard time sorting out the wheat from the chafe on The Aeroplane Flies High, but that work will be a pleasure for the diehards. [A rarities-laden expanded box set of a box set consisting primarily of rarities, EMI's 2013 deluxe edition of the Smashing Pumpkins' 1996 The Aeroplane Flies High practically defines the category of lavish fanbait. Originally, the five-CD The Aeroplane Flies High was designed to gather the singles from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, to collect the non-LP B-sides from that triple album, and this expansion contains all of that box's 33 tracks, plus another 71 previously unreleased cuts. These are demos, alternate versions, and live recordings including rehearsal tapes but this isn't limited to mere audio tracks, as there is also a live show from July 4, 1997 in Belfort, France. It is an embarrassment of riches for the hardcore fan and, although it is certainly true that only the hardcore fan would want to dig that deeply, it surely doesn't feel like scraping the bottom of the barrel. This is expertly curated and assembled, the demos and alternates often showing notable differences, and the live cuts are of consistently high quality, which means that any Pumpkins fan who has the yen to indulge again in another massive box set will not be disappointed.]
