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.

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

On their fifth album, the Pumpkins attempt to reclaim the higher ground they dominated with the peerless Siamese Dream and the sprawling 28-track opus Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. As a result, they hit the ground running on Machina, exploding into life with "The Everlasting Gaze" and its firestorm of guitars and heavy metaphysical thunder. There are some quintessential Pumpkins moments here, notably "Stand Inside Your Love," which soars away on a spiraling guitar solo, and "Try, Try, Try," which taps into Corgan's ever-present melancholy.

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

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").

nailer
very well put. machina is my favorite album they ever did. i especially love the japanese edition that i scored off of discogs.

Goll
Ahem, the CD version, of course, isn't gonna bitch-slap you with random quality and a $40 dollar cardboard mural.The Pumpkins strongest release since Siamese? Possibly, discounting the few incredible tracks on 'Adore' that was quite clearly missing Chamberlin, Their last great album really. Very consistent production and song formulae that is generally well paced and written,,lyrics included, and invites multiple listens, as it comes across as Not-Corgin-Full-Hammer, but a more collective and poetic coalescence of the band at that stage. Manage to pull you in with tracks "Stand Inside Your Love' and 'With Every Light' in equal measure. Probably their best overall statement and swansong.
