Album of the week

SmashingPumpkins-Adore.jpg 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

"Drum + Fife" is the third single from The Smashing Pumpkins' ninth studio album Monuments to an Elegy. The track was premiered through NME on November 21, 2014. Corgan had originally written it as a folk song, but drummer Tommy Lee helped shift it into rock territory. The song was well-received by critics, with Consequence of Sound describing it as "a melodic, yet rallying rocker", and Corgan's vocals as "tenacious".

Did you know...

  • ...that the arrangements for TheFutureEmbrace followed an unusual process of splitting melodies into four parts based on their pitch, and the production team would program synths in each voicing and combine them into a multitrack recording?
  • ...that "Thru the Eyes of Ruby" contains approximately 70 guitar tracks, while "To Forgive" consists of only one live guitar take?
  • ...that Billy Corgan briefly worked with basketball superstar and rapper Shaquille O'Neal? Corgan began work on a track loosely inspired by Dr. Dre, but the collaboration fell through. The drumbeats that survived were used in "Eye", which appeared on the Lost Highway soundtrack.
  • ...that Zeitgeist was the first Smashing Pumpkins album Jimmy Chamberlin helped produce? Regarding the aggressive drumming, he said "the world is ready for something with some balls behind it."
  • ...that the original concept for the "Tonight, Tonight" video was for a Busby Berkeley theme, with "people diving into champagne glasses", but Red Hot Chili Peppers did a similar video for "Aeroplane", almost identical to what the band wanted to do?
