Album of the week

Adore by The Smashing Pumpkins was considered "one of the most anticipated albums of 1998". Recording proved to be a challenge as the band struggled with both personal and interpersonal problems and the departure of Jimmy Chamberlin. While the resulting electronic sound divided some fans, it gained an immense cult following and was praised by critics. Adore went Platinum in the US and 2× Platinum in Canada. It was the band's third straight album to be nominated for a Grammy, peaking at #1 in five countries and #2 on the Billboard 200. A remastered and expanded version of the album was released in September 2014.

Song of the day

"Stand Inside Your Love" is the second single and lead international single from 2000's Machina/The Machines of God. At the time, Corgan called it the only "true" love song he'd ever written. He told VH1 Storytellers, "'Stand Inside Your Love' is one of those rare songs that seems to write itself really quickly... As far as the song goes, it's sort of a love song that rocks, which is pretty rare, even for me." The single's cover depicted the alchemical androgyne, a significant symbolic representation within alchemy, which basically represents the perfect union between man and woman when joined as a single entity. "Stand Inside Your Love" charted in at least 8 countries and peaked at #2 on the Alternative Songs chart.
