Adorable released their debut album Against Perfection in 1993, and it remains as fresh today as it did 25 years ago. Falling in between the Shoegaze movement that was at its height in the very early 90's and the Britpop scene that was to follow a couple of years later The album very much bridges the two genres with the atmospheric guitar work acting as a counter-point to the strong sense of song writing

Hands down one of the best albums from the UK in the 90s. Had the pleasure to see them live for this album at Slims in San Francisco USA. All 10 tracks, from start to finish are hits. Hard to see how this didn't catch on but that's how it goes. Another hidden gem. Responder Notifícame 2 Helpful.

Against Perfection is unlike anything else, really. There isn't a dud on the album, and the stellar tracks are really about as good a pop music gets, period. The only problem is not wearing out the repeat button on your remote after "Sunshine Smile. I'll cut right to the chase here. Adorable's hugely overlooked and grossly underappreciated debut album, "Against Perfection", is easily among the finest pieces of pure pop pleasure I have in my ridicously bloated CD collection. If you enjoy the darker, moodier side of pop music (especially if you listen to British alt/indie rock), and if you have a sweet tooth for the 3-4 minute single, then this album is for you.
