Smashing Pumpkins - with a core lineup of Corgan, second guitarist James Iha, bassist D’arcy Wretzky, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin - hailed from Chicago and blew up with their second album, 1993’s Siamese Dream, a colossus of snarling guitar-god ambition and bleating sad-goth vulnerability. God bless the crunchy neon-melodrama anthem Today, and its iconic let’s paint an ice-cream truck video. Very few ’90s rock records - Nirvana’s Nevermind, in fact, might be the only one - were bigger, or better, or more melodramatically beloved. Track 12 on Adore is called Shame. At this point on the album all but the most devout Corgan worshipers are flagging at least a little, and the song doesn’t much perk things up: It’s slow and funereal and almost seven minutes long, and our rattled antihero is not at his most lyrically astute. Love is good and love is kind, Love is good and love is blind.
Released June 2, 1998. After the announcement of the release, MTV declared Adore to be one of the most anticipated albums of 1998. The fourth studio album by the Smashing Pumpkins was released at the height of their fame on June 2nd of that year. Pitchfork Magazine called it synthpop, Slant called it gothic rock, and Rolling Stone called it an epic electronic rock album. Simply put, this was an album that offered something entirely new to the Pumpkins catalog.

Listen free to The Smashing Pumpkins – Adore (To Sheila, Ava Adore and more). Adore is the fourth studio album by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins. Virgin Records released the album on June 2, 1998 in the United States. Adore marked a change in sound for The Smashing Pumpkins; Greg Kot of Rolling Stone magazine noted that the album "isn't just a transitional record; it's a complete break with the past.
The Smashing Pumpkins' fourth album is the latest to get the lavish reissue treatment, with five discs of bonus material. With Adore, Billy Corgan made an album nearly as diverse, sprawling, and confounding as Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, which was the exact opposite of what he set out to do. Here we have the little, lovesick album where the caged rat sings and alienates Smashing Pumpkins fans by the millions-you know, the one that’s 73 minutes long and whose first single begins with the lyric, It’s you that I adore/ You’ll always be my whore.
The Smashing Pumpkins started demoing in February 1997 and recorded 30 songs for the album which, at one point, looked set to be a double album. The band subsequently cut the number of tracks on the album to 1. .After playing several festival dates in summer 1997, the band began working at a variety of Chicago studios with producer Brad Wood-with whom Corgan previously had worked in the early 1990s. While Mellon Collie had mostly been recorded with the full participation of all of the band members, the band dynamics during the new sessions soon muddled as Corgan, uninspired. The lead-up to Adore was marked by conflicting statements as to the album's sound-Corgan initially said the band was heading in the direction of the nd-electronic music-driven "The End is the Beginning is the End" in summer 1997
