Machina/The Machines of God. Smashing Pumpkins. Released February 29, 2000. Machina/The Machines of God Tracklist. 1. The Everlasting Gaze Lyrics. While many still refer to Adore as the most underrated Pumpkins album, Machina is by far the most misunderstood. Years later, publications like Pop Matters would call the album criminally underrated. Released in February of 2000, Machina marked the return of drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and the departure of bassist D'arcy Wretzky. It also marked a departure from the synth driven progressive sound that held throughout their previous album, Adore. It was marketed as a return to form album, but as most fans have realized, there is no form to return to when it comes to this band

Machina/The Machines of God is the fifth studio album by the American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released on February 29, 2000, by Virgin Records. A concept album, it marked the return of drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and was intended to be the band's final official LP release prior to their first break up in 2000. A sequel album - Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music - was later released independently via the Internet, and limited quantities for the physical version.

Any record called MACHINA/The Machines of God couldn't be a pure rock album. As it happens, MACHINA is a lot progressive. Though it's damn near impossible to figure out the story line, the album plays like a concept album, with each track floating into the next, winding up with an album artier than Adore. That's not a liability, since the Smashing Pumpkins were always arty, yet Billy Corgan was very clever in camouflaging his artiness

Machina/The Machines of God is the fifth album by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released on February 29, 2000 by Virgin Records. A concept album, it marked the return of drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and was intended to be the band's final official LP release prior to their first breakup in 2000. A sequel album-Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music-was later released independently via the Internet.

The Pumpkins' fascination with sepia tones, parchment, and God kills whatever joy might otherwise be gleaned from their fifth LP. Filling the entire capacity of a compact disc, MACHINA simply blabbers on far too long. The problems with Billy Corgan are conveniently packaged in the track "I of the Mourning" (note the fucking "u").

By the fall of 1999, when Smashing Pumpkins started wrapping up production on Machina/The Machines of God, the end of the band probably seemed like a foregone conclusion. Even though original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin had rejoined the fold (he was fired in 1996 for a particularly destructive drug habit), bassist D'Arcy Wretzky had tendered her resignation while the band were still recording. She was eventually replaced by Hole's Melissa Auf der Maur, who appears in all the promo photos for the album. Enthusiasm for the music within the band was reportedly waning
