Against Perfection [Import] by Adorable
|Music on Vinyl|
Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing including insert. 25th Anniversary edition. They have 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’. Adorable released only two studio albums before disbanding as a music group. It was an impressive five-year period in which they combined the dreamy world of the shoegaze with the pop, but never got the recognition they deserved.
