Smashing Pumpkins
Adore

This is the sound of comforting darkness, rain and windy hills, stars, lace, exotic scents, softness. It has wings to fly. This is the mood you get just looking at the sleeve art of this album. And the music is just that. Happiness and sadness.
On this album, there is no hard guitars like on other Smashing Pumpkins records, and they're not the main sound on this record. There's strings, acoustic guitar...
My favorites on this record include, glimmering shine of "Perfect", jerky "Ava Adore", breezy "Appels + Oranjes"... in fact, most of the tracks could be put here as my favorites.
The length of this record doesn't matter, it has enough variation to keep any numbness away. A pleasant surprise.
