Let It Come Down (album)

Let It Come Down is James Iha's first and currently only solo album. It was released in 1998, during which Iha was still with The Smashing Pumpkins, before the release of Adore. Iha took on a more acoustic country-ish sound reminiscent of the songs he contributed to the Pumpkins, notably shying away from the darker sound of Billy Corgan's songwriting.

"Be Strong Now" was released as a single featuring the bonus tracks "Falling", "My Advice" and "Take Care".

The font used on the cover is modelled on a similar font used on the jacket of The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.
