Episode 95 - Off the Rails Month, Part VIII - The Smashing Pumpkins - Adore

September 17th, 2017

Today, we're plodding along in our re-visitation of "Off the Rails Month", where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field, by asking that musical question, "What happens when a guitar-driven band abandons the sound that made them famous?" when we discuss The Smashing Pumpkins' fourth studio album, 1998's "Adore". Going for a more intimate and personal album after facing a series of personal and professional setbacks, "Adore" became a polarizing album among critics and fans and was The Smashing Pumpkins' last platinum album. But what of this album? Was it an under-rated and unexpected masterpiece, or was it an overly long collection of uninspired ennui that nobody wanted? Tune in to find out.
