5.0 out of 5 stars oh yeah 1977's taking me over, 8 Nov 2008
This review is from: 1977 [Collectors Edition] (Audio CD)
okay i was two years short from hitting my teens upon its 1996 release but 1977 by ASH was the album that more or less reflected my growing up in some way's and this re-issue is a slight premature considering they have only released 5 albums into their lifetime and are now focusing on just releasing singles but i suppose it does not hurt the album any further since this 3cd collection gathers all the three pieces best hits and rarities to make a great album even greater.

Disc 2 and 3 are purely for the borderline - obsessive as disc 1 when it was first released 12 years ago is the real deal tracks like "Oh Yeah" has a slow start that veers into a climatic build up of Wheeler's vocals as if he was describing whats life like as a teenager connecting with those finding growing up a real chore as thier voice and body changes while "Girl From Mars" is pure power pop at its best with its fuzzy guitars and dreamy vocals whilst the three piece doff off their hats to the kung fu referenced "Jackie Chan" and carrying on their love for star wars with "Angel Interceptor".

Even though they went on to release better albums with charlotte hatherly as a four piece but thier debut album is the definitive purchase as even though it has a nolstalgic appeal its songs have never aged.
