The lastest from Smashing Pumpkins, Owatta, is a fun summer song. There are no epic guitar leads or pounding rock drums. It is a pleasent positive pop song with good lyrics. It is definetely more Zwan than Smashing Pumpkins, which is not a bad thing for me. At this point I think it is safe to say that TBK will be defined by strong synthesizers, much like Machina for many was defined by over-produced mixes (guitars/drums/vocals). I personally liked the Cris Isaaks Show version of this song the best. There was a horn section and it did not have any synthesizers.
