HASH(0x9e869144) out of 5 stars Achingly beautiful; really grabs you! Feb. 29 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is why I like the Smashing Pumpkins! The title track of course is the savage "Ava Adore", but the real reason, as all the reviews below say, to buy this CD is the 2 bonus tracks. "Czarina" and "Once In A While" are absolutely amazing love songs which, were it not for Billy's nasal voice, would not sound one bit like Pumpkins' songs! It's that ability to morph into new forms which makes them, in my opinion, THE best rock band of the 1990's. Grab this CD while you can!

HASH(0x9eb0af24) out of 5 stars It ALMOST surprised me March 15 2000
By J. M. Corriveau - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was almost caught off guard by how good the other songs were...then I just remembered "hey, this is the Pumpkins we're talkin about here". But really, I already had Adore when I bought this so I knew how good Adore was. I had also heard Czarina and I thought it was pretty good so I decided to buy it. Then when I got it I listened to Once In a While...that song is really good. So if you like the Disarm/To Forgive less heavy type of songs, or you're a pumpkin fan you NEED to buy this.

HASH(0x9e83b858) out of 5 stars "...all that I want is waiting for me there..." June 27 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This single is much more than I expected. First, of course, is Ava Adore, a song I can't listen to without being inspired to do some crazy interpretive dance. Then comes Czarina, a good song for the Pumpkins, but one that frustrates me because it makes me question my life (always wanting more Smashing PUmpkins CDs, etc...). The last song is Once in a While. I have only had the single for 4 days, and no song has ever made me cry as many times as this one has. It is not only beautiful, but I've just been reading this religious book and that is the only way I can describe it: sacred. I am almost afraid to say that because now some of you will think I am being lame and stupid, but that's not true, I really love this song. If you really listen, Billy Corgan is stroking your heart...AFTER it has finished thumping to the excellent grooves of the song Ava Adore.

HASH(0x9fae87b0) out of 5 stars Excellent June 6 1998
By A Customer - Published on

This release shows the brilliance of the Smashing Pumpkins and lead singer Billy Corgan. The first track "ava adore" has a new pumpkin's feel to it with added electronic beats which make it even more different from previous works of the band. The next two songs "Czarina" and "Once in a While" have a more mellow sound, but still are some of the best songs ever written and performed by the band, also "Czarina" and "Once in a While" are not available on the album "Adore" so it is worth it to get this if you are a pumpkin fan, and if you were not a fan before you got this cd you definitley will be after you get it. Out of 4 stars I would give "ava adore" a perfect 4 this is by far the best single ever from the Smashing Pumpkins!

HASH(0x9ea91fa8) out of 5 stars Nice to hear a single again from the Pumpkins Aug. 19 2005
By Zen Station - Published on
Format: Audio CD
And it's from the last album where they would actually release a commercial single stateside. The album starts with the amazing "Ava Adore" which anyone who comes here has also heard. I have heard this single before; I'm probably going to buy it sometime when I get the cash. I have heard both of the B-sides though.

Neither are actually spectacular, but they are both pleasant. "Czarina" is a nice fingerpick acoustic track from the Pumpkins and "Once in a While" is nice to hear. It's interesting that there are a couple of B-sides in this era that had James Iha whenever none of the songs that made the album were even co-penned by him.
