Some fantastic alterative and early mixes and high quality audio live performances
If you are a fan like myself who really has heard all of the previously released material your in for a treat. I only really bought this for the remastered version of adore ( the siamese dream remaster on cd is a thing of much beauty ) and the dvd, but have been really impressed by the selection of alt. Mixes and great live performances.

and if you've not heard adore before, it is by far the easiest listen of all the sp albums, though paradoxically, in true sp fashion, at their peak they lose their drummer, so adore is toned down in so many ways, and is good for it.

highlights include, an early bango mix of to shiela, a sublime live version of daphne decends and a piano only version of saturnine.
Fingers crossed for a machina reissue....

Format: Audio CD
Originally released sporting a black and white photo depicting a bowing girl in front of what looked like an umbrella, "Adore"'s re-issue cover presents the complete picture frame in colour; the girl apears to be one of the petals of a blossomed red rose. How beautiful, indeed. The Smashing Pumpkins have always incorporated poetic elements in their work, but on "Adore" poetic they became. Whereas previous albums were more punchy and straight-forward affairs, on this, a dark, melancholic, melodic, introspective quality runs through each of the 16 songs, appropriately, as during that time the band were dealing with death and seperation (frontman Billy Corgan's mother's death, his divorce, the reunion with his father, asking drummer Jimmy Chamberlin to leave the band etc.). Experimenting with electronic sounds, fusing a 70s rock essence with 80s synth-sounds, and 90s techno-tempos was, indeed, a strange change in direction for the band, especially considering the phenomenal success of their multi-platinum and critically acclaimed previous 2 records.

Despite being poorly received by critics and fans upon its 1998 release, "Adore" really attained the very same heights as the kicking "Siamese dream" and the magnificent "Mellon collie and the infinite sadness", despite sounding nothing like either of the two. Actualy, "Adore" is entirely different to any former or subsequent SP album. Even B. Corgan's signature angry scream here is replaced with a voice that sounds warm and human. Brimming with creativity and emotion, and transcending all expectations, this conceptual album was conceptualized in the most unexpected and alternative manner. Raw usually means hard, but it can also mean fine and beautiful; that is exactly what "Adore" is.
