25th Anniversary Edition On 180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Numbered, Limited Edition Flaming Vinyl - Only 1500 Copies!


They've never been praised for the great albums they produced, but Adorable released one of the stronger albums during the year 1993. Stuck in the moment between the end of the shoegaze hysteria and the Britpop era, their debut album Against Perfection appeared. The heavy instrumentation and impressive voice of lead singer Pete Fijalkowski can definitely be linked to the perfection they're searching for in their music. The bittersweet "Sunshine Smile" shows their crossover between shoegaze and Britpop, while the secret choruses from the guitar hooks creates the thrill of the unknown on "Glorious". The pre-Adorable tune "Homeboy" is a track that follows the quiet-loud music line and it got some distortion and big bass sounds.

Adorable released only two studio albums before disbanding as a music group. It was an impressive 5-year period in which they combined the dreamy world of shoegaze with pop, but never got the recognition they deserved.

Against Perfection is available as a first pressing of 1,500 individually numbered copies on flaming vinyl.

"The rise and fall of Adorable mirrors that of shoegaze itself. The band played their first gig in January 1991, right at the start of shoegaze's imperial phase, and released their debut album Against Perfection in March 1993, when Suede were the new media darlings. Between these two points, Adorable released a run of singles strong enough to cement their place in shoegaze lore, including the epic hubris of 'I'll Be Your Saint' and the sky-scraping bounce of 'Sistine Chapel Ceiling.' 'Sunshine Smile,' in particular, exemplifies all that is stellar about Adorable: a spidery guitar riff that explodes into beatific distortion, singer Pete Fijalkowski's languid, Ian McCulloch-esque croon, and a rhythm section that burns with the nervous energy of young love." - Pitchfork, The 50 Best Shoegaze Albums Of All Time, Rated 42/50
