Los Angeles' Silversun Pickups emerged at just the right time. The band's 2006 debut LP, Carnavas, hit when '90s nostalgia was just beginning - a time when it became apparent we couldn't count on Billy Corgan to make another great Smashing Pumpkins album, so we might as well embrace Silversun Pickups, because this is as close as we're gonna get. Ten years later, Carnavas is no Siamese Dream, but Big Muff-drenched singles like "Well Thought Out Twinkles" and "Lazy Eye" hold up pretty well. Subsequent albums? Not so much. (Think twice)
