Smitten is a 1998 album by Buffalo Tom. It was their only album for Polydor Records.

Singer/guitarist Bill Janovitz said that, as the band members looked over demos in preparation for the album, they noticed that keyboards were taking a larger role in their songs than before.[2]

Early in the process of putting the album together, the band spent time working with guitarist/keyboardist Tom Gorman, most well known as a member of Belly. Gorman pointed out that the band would probably be better served by a traditional keyboardist. Gorman was replaced by Phil Aiken after Janovitz spied his classified ad in a local weekly.[3]

The album was produced by David Bianco, who was sought out by the band after being impressed by his work with Teenage Fanclub.
