Without doubt Ash's best album, and possibly one of the very best of the 90's. There simply isn't one bad track on this album, and the singles are all class. "Girl from Mars" and "Kung Fu" are their finest songs, although everything else here isn't far off this quality.
There's no opportunity for the album to become too samey, as ballad often follows punk-esque thrash, regulating the pace, and improving the overall sound structure. And if you happen to be up for a laugh, wait until the very end of "Darkside Lightside" for what is described on the inlay card as "Sick Party".
Overall, this album comes pretty damn close to perfection, and if you've only heard the latest singles, this is the best album to start you off. Sheer brilliance.
