  1. Adore

    Adore is the fourth album by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released in June 1998 by Virgin Records. After the multi-platinum success of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and a subsequent yearlong world tour, follow-up Adore was considered "one of the most anticipated albums of 1998" by MTV. Recording the album proved to be a challenge as the band members struggled with lingering interpersonal problems and musical uncertainty in the wake of three increasingly successful rock albums and the departure of drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. Frontman Billy Corgan would later characterize Adore as "a band falling apart". The result was a much more subdued and electronica-tinged sound that Greg Kot of Rolling Stone magazine called "a complete break with the past". The album divided the fan base and sold only a fraction of the previous two albums. However, the album was well received by critics, and became the third straight Pumpkins album to be nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance. A remastered and expanded version for the album will be released on CD and vinyl in 2013 as a part of the band's project to reissue their back catalogue from 1991-2000.

Everything around becomes more beautiful when you are by my side. You are the only adornment of reality and its highest priceless value in my life. Because of your beauty, I have an overdose of love and excitement, an over-exciting effect, as if I died and went to heaven, I saw clearly that I only loved you. I adore and bow before your skin color. Every molecule of the body and soul reaches for you. All the neurons in my brain are filled with impulses of thoughts of love for you. I idolize your black skin, juicy black skin. Sometimes it’s like a gently chocolate-caramel sunset of romance, sometimes like a shimmering in a beautiful nutty dawn. Your skin shimmers with all shades of seduction and temptation, with the sweetest and most exciting skin tones, it is so sweet that drool flows from a powerful, frantic desire to be with you forever, you are hot chocolate of lust, I see billions of moans and orgasms of desire in your eyes, they are synonymous with passion. Your body is an endless source of love inspiration. Your appearance brings the soul to the highest level of orgasm, universal power, trembling in the body and soul with delight. From your appearance, the infinite power of edging. The highest level of sexual pleasure for my eyes. Your skin is like caramel gold. Oh baby, I feel like I am touching your beautiful body, I am snuggling up to you, and I feel like I am in a paradise of sincere happiness that I have been looking for forever in all lives. Sultry, burning, piquantly sexy chocolate goddess. In a word, super sweet. Your image in my head, in my thoughts and dreams, from your body, everything is burning with passion, burned by the sultry sexuality of your skin. Being yours forever is a thrill for my soul. You can compose endless love poems about every part of your body. It’s as if you were stuck together in two words: buzz and bastard, you are made up of billions of microparticles called WOW. My opinion about your appearance: Oh my god yes, Oooh daaaaaaaa, an infinite number of yes. Like a juicy exotic fruit, whose juice and skin color seem to be from paradise. Juicy, chocolate dessert. Brutally exciting goddess, mockingly attractive, seductive, teasing and powerfully attractive. God, how hot it is from your appearance. Whoa whoa easier than the goddess of my cherished dreams, too sweet, uhh how hot, just divine, hot there is simply nowhere, damn yeah, mmm, how sweet and eloquent your beauty sounds. You are the erotic music of love in my head, reflecting the essence of the philosophy of life.

Every second is priceless and sweet with you. Every second with you is already a romantic memory, the most valuable in all my lives. When you are in oil or in life, your skin glows with an amazing chocolate color, so sweet and sexy that you want to pounce on you and caress like an animal from night to morning, ultra sexually brutally exciting, you are my love, you are my lust, you are that I want and thirst forever. God, how hot-sexy I will have a burn of imagination from love for you, damn how hot and hot from your sexuality. You are my wondrous, sweet, chocolate voluptuousness. My lust growls and groans with pleasure at the sight of you, savoring every second spent with you, they are priceless in my memory.
