i know a lot of die-hard pumpkins fans don't care for this album, but to be honest, this is one of my favorite albums of theirs! it is very different than, say siamese dream, but sometimes different is good. what makes this cd different is with this album, they experimented with electronic music, and the lyrics are pretty dark which gives this album a "gothic" feel. it's also fairly soft compared to their earlier albums. to conclude this review, if you haven't heard this album yet then you need to check it out!

I purchased this album when it first came out many years ago and I still pull it out on a regular basis. Very sad and melancholy with many beautiful textures throughout. Billy wearing his heart on his sleeve for all to share.

I give it 2 stars because I love the Pumpkins... the only thing saving it from being utterly disgusting is their name on the cover and the fact that Billy seems to at least remember what his band used to sound like. I saw an interview Billy did where he claimed that Mellon Collie "kind of... marked the end of our era as a 'rock band'." You ain't kiddin, buddy.
I miss Jimmy's drumming. With Jimmy Chamberlin missing, Billy's tyranny took over and he decided to do a bunch of weird techno junk... I am very disappointed in the band. The first single, "Ava Adore", is fairly decent, but in no way even comes close to the old Pumpkins. "Pug" almost rocks hard, but Billy still sounds like he's whining. Don't get me wrong, I like soft music just as much as the next guy, but an entire album full of it just IS NOT PUMPKINS.
"Appels + Oranjes" is quick and lively (although dark at the same time), and its lyrics are reminiscent of "Muzzle" (from Mellon Collie). I enjoyed it... so there's three good songs.
I just learned yesterday, though, that Chamberlin is back. I can't wait for the next album... hopefully this soft, semi-techno thing is just a phase. Hopefully they can be a real band again now that they have their drummer back.

The Smashing Pumpkins have always been a band that I've known of and been able to recognize on the radio (how could you not?) but I never truly "got into" them. However, after hearing "Thirty-three" (from "Mellon Collie") on the radio, I finally said, "Okay, I have to listen to these people." Over the past few days, I've listened to all of the Smashing Pumpkins' major studio releases. Based on my impression of them, I have to say "Adore" is my favorite. I don't understand why it was poorly received, both by fans and critics, when it came out. It shows a huge step both forward both musically (for the Pumpkins as a whole) and lyrically (for Billy Corgan). It shows far much more ambition than "Mellon Collie" -- ask yourself, how many alternative bands would attempt to make an album without a drummer? But they attempted and they pulled it off beautifully.
The album opens with the absolutely gorgeous "To Sheila" -- I knew from the first notes that I was going to love the album. It's followed by the electronically-driven and -- dare I say -- catchy "Ava Adore." The two opening songs do what opening songs should do -- they set the tone for the album, as the rest of the album is full of electronics and beautiful piano-driven songs. Don't worry, the guitar isn't absent -- it's still there, it's just not the overpowering force it once was. It blends easily here. Beyond the opening tracks, some standouts are "Daphne Descends," "Annie-Dog," "Blank Page," and "For Martha," Billy Corgan's tearjerking tribute to his deceased mother.
"Adore" proves the musical genius of Billy Corgan.

I find that the overdubbing of synthesizers and drum machines really took away the soul of this album. I still love, however the piano driven songs, and the soft acoustic driven songs. I love the emotion in the album, but as I said before it doesn't fit in well with a lot the synthesizers.
I think that if the outtakes from Mellon Collie (Aeroplane Flies High) were combined with this album, and a sort of a double album like Mellon Collie this would be an amazing album, perhaps better than Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie, Gish, or even Pisces Iscariot.
