Whoa that reply was unecessarily angry.
I’m a Radiohead fan and don’t really find it appropriate for you to bucket us as pretentious. I like a lot of Corgan’s music but think that he has definitely had some crappy contributions to music (Zwan). Maybe this explains why he is so bitter about the opinions of the masses and music critics- because we identified Zwan as a piece of crap. I envy anyone that would say I’m being pretentious, because I wish I was able to find joy in listening to such a terrible album.
Is it pretentious to have an opinion? No. Is calling an entire group of people pretentious or talking about the “pomposity” of music pretentious? Perhaps. Billy Corgan fires his entire band about every two years.. would you do this? To me, this seems like something a total jerk would do, but I don’t know Billy Corgan personally and I wouldn’t want to be labeled as pretentious for having a sound opinion on the matter.
