i totally dig a lot of the b-sides/outtakes/demos more than about 70% of adore. here are a couple of my favourites:


i need you around/ blissed and gone
my mistake
soot and stars
czarina
chewing gum
saturnine (adore)
summer
once in awhile

and let me give the world to you can count too. yeah. i like that one a lot too.

my favourite songs off of adore are:

crestfallen
to sheila
blank page
for martha
once upon a time
the tale of dusty + pistol pete
annie dog

my enjoyment of the rest of the album is very dependant on my mood. except appels + oranjes, which is in my bottom-5 sp songs.

but this thread is all about the appreciation of those lovely songs that didn't make what was supposed to be their most lovely album.

do you close your eyes would definitely make my top 110 (the aforementioned adore and adore-era songs all made my top 100).

i put blissed and gone and i need you around together cos esentially they're the same song, and i can never decide which version i like better.

soot and stars sounds adore-era, but is it machina-era? :think:

lmgtwty was perfect. it was still nice even after they machina'd/flood'd it up. kind of lost some of its effect though.

Yeah, Soot and Stars was Machina era. Even if you didn't know by way of looking it up, you can just tell by his voice... it's more of that "older Billy" sound.

Saturnine, Once In A While, Blissed and Gone, Sparrow, and Chewing Gum would be my top five Adore non-album tracks. The last two seem to be widely disliked, but Sparrow is very pretty and Chewing Gum is fun and quite catchy IMO.

Ha, here's my take:

To Sheila
Do You Close Your Eyes
Czarina
Tear
My Mistake
The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete
Annie Dog
Shame
Behold! The Night Mare
For Martha
Blank Page
Blissed and Gone

Take off most of the electronic bleeps, blips, etc, add Jimmy Chamberlin, and give the album more of a stripped down, just-the-band-playing-live feel. Where electronica exists, make it subtle and organic, ie the way To Sheila is (a perfect song, IMO). Add some warm string sections in strategic places, give them all some singing lessons, and put more D'arcy and James vocals as **********, harmony, and maybe even at the forefront of some parts of some songs...I think Dusty and Pistole Pete would've made an awesome Corgan/Wretzky duet.

Save Ava Adore, Perfect, Daphne Descends, Pug, maybe Appels + Oranjes for another album which also contains Eye, TEITBITE/TBITEITB, and some stuff along the lines of the best parts of the Ransom soundtrack. In other words, a very loud, dense, kinetic album that melds electronic musical aspects with the band's "live" style/instrumentation to make some really out there music. I think they could've easily blown the entire "industrial" genre out of the water (and simultaneously made it entirely irrelevant) if they went further down the road they started with TEITB/TBITE/Eye/Ransom.

Of course, this would've all hinged on the band firing Jimmy in July 1996, but instead of going on without him they should've all taken a nice long hiatus to take a step back and deal with their sudden fame, Melvoin's death, and all the other bullshit they were dealing with. If, after that, they each still thought that being in the band was worthwhile, and they got Jimmy back clean, they could've ruled the world for the next 5 years and maybe beyond.

Adore - folky, acoustic, subtle, laid back

"____" - frightening tour de force in prog/electronica/industrial/metal music

Friends and Enemies - a classic, stripped down 'rock and roll hits' album (think LMGTWTY, CC*, Virex, Home, Slow Dawn, Glass/Dross, HTTAB, White Spyder, etc.)

Machina - farewell album, dense, organic, ethereal (think TEG, Real Love, AOI, epic version of BSBT incorporating several of the different 'styles' in which the song was recorded)

What are you talking about? That is the actual title of the instrumental demo.

What about it? I listed it as being a song that came from the Adore era, and it was.

i want to do my adore dream CD too now.

i might even burn it

01 | Perfect
02 | The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete
03 | Chewing Gum
04 | Ava Adore
05 | Czarina
06 | To Sheila
07 | 17
08 | Annie-Dog
09 | Behold! The Night Mare
10 | Blissed and Gone
11 | Blank Page
12 | For Martha
13 | Shame
14 | 17

i enjoy the mental struggle of kicking great songs off the list so it works together as a shorter album. the 17's are like an intercession and an afterthought. the only thing i think i should change is that behold>blissed>blank are 3 songs beginning with B in a row. spaceboy>silverfuck>sweet sweet always bothered me when listed vertically.
