This is quite simply a stunning album, full of incendiary summer-loving pop-rock songs that demonstrate a band doing their utmost to save the world from Westlife and Slipknot.
The opening salvo constitutes quite possibly the best three tracks of 2001. Walking Barefoot is a bona fide classic, which epitomises the whole spirit of the album and will soundtrack every summer until the end of time. Shining Light has a wonderfully memorable pop hook, and Burn Baby Burn is as explosive and energetic a track as Tim Wheeler ever wrote.
Interspersed between the full-on adrenaline rush of the faster tracks, there are some sublime ballads here too. Sometimes is the best example - a bittersweet summer soft-rock masterpiece. The band have also invested in an immense string section, which features on Candy, Someday and most effectively on the atmospheric There's A Star.
The main topics of songwriting are girls, summer and both at once, but variety is shown on Nicole, which, incredibly, is about murdering your girlfriend! Pacific Palisades and the appropriately named Cherry Bomb are two more storming, hell-for-leather pop explosions, with lyrics about Benzedrine and teenage crushes in school corridors.
All in all, then, a terrific return to form for Britain's brightest stars.

Let me begin by stating the most obvious fact about this album. Burn Baby Burn and Shining Light are both outstanding. The guitar thumping, adrenaline rush of BBB and the uplifting 'the worlds not so bad after all' Shining Light, are presented just after the very impressive opening track Walking Barefoot and this trio gets the album of to a very good start. But then disaster strikes with track number 4, the (to be honest truly awful) Candy. Its difficult to tell if Wheeler has his tongue firmly in pressed into his cheek or if this is actually seen as a suitable offering from a band who in the past have not had to resort to gimmick riddled samples. After this blip the songs do plod along nicely with a couple of tracks standing out more then others namely Shark and Sometimes. But the most disconcerting fact about this album is the tracks not mentioned so far in this review could be played continuously without anybody seeing the joins. Many of the songs sounding pretty much like the one before and very similar to the next. 1977 is still undoubtedly Ash's finest hours work with the praise it received being greatly deserved. Their Second album Nu-clear Sounds showed the raw talent and utter excitement often associated with Ash even though it wasn't everybody's cup of tea. But Free All Angels falls short of the mark. Don't get me wrong me it is still worth buying (even though you may need to keep reaching for the skip button when you get to track 4). Its just a shame that the winning formula hit upon back in 1996 (when 1977 smacked the world full in the face) is proving so difficult to reproduce.

Free All Angels – Ash’s most recent album and the one that proved to the world that they’ve still got it. That is, the ability to produce songs of the utmost quality, with that Ash vibe that makes you feel like every day should be a summer’s day. This is certainly the case with standout tracks “Walking Barefoot”, “Burn Baby Burn” and “Sometimes”, which are slightly more poppy than Ash’s previous releases, but they make the transition well. There’s still diversity like with 1977 with the more edgy tracks such as “Nicole” and “Shark” for fans who prefer the heavier Ash. There are a few tracks, however, that don’t quite seem to flow – namely “Candy”, and the rushed “World Domination”. Aside from these, “Free All Angels” sees Ash continue to do what they do best, and is a very welcome and much anticipated comeback release – which hasn’t failed to disappoint.

I bought this album after seeing Ash performing live in Liverpool back in May 2001.This album was at the heart of most of the show and to be honest,the new songs totally blew me away.
The album begins with Walking Barefoot,a cracking punk pop song to start proceedings.It's followed by the superb singles Shining Light and Burn Baby Burn and Candy.
Often albums are critised for have "fillers" but this album retains its momentum until the thunderous ending with World Domination.The new single There's A Star will hopefully prove to the general public what a brilliant album this really is.
It's well worth the five stars because the songs are consistantly good.This album will show that Ash are one of the best bands are country has to offer us,possibly more talented than Travis.

Sorry, that was an awful one-liner. Anyway, I never used to be an Ash fan, especially after listening to 'Nu-Clear Sounds', but I have to say that 'Free All Angels' has completely converted me. It was the single release of 'Sometimes' that prompted me to buy the album, and I can't say I'm disappointed. Aside from the poor 'Shark' and 'Submission', you will listen to the songs on this album again and again (I know, I listened to it all summer). 'Candy', although a good pop song, does not seem to fit with Ash's usual punky style. 'Cherry Bomb', 'Burn Baby Burn', 'Nicole', 'World Domination' and 'Pacific Palisades' are real rocking tracks, whereas 'There's a Star' and 'Someday' are more ballady, though nevertheless well worth listening to. The first track, 'Walking Barefoot' is a complete Ash classic, as is 'Shining Light'. And then there's 'Sometimes' - quite simply the best thing Tim Wheeler has ever written.
