5.0 out of 5 stars Burn Baby Burn is a pretty average single from Ash, 17 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Burn Baby Burn [CD 1] (Audio CD)
With their third album, Free All Angels, just around the corner, Irish four-piece Ash release their latest single Burn Baby Burn. After success with their last few singles, Shining Light and A Life Less Ordinary, they look likely to keep up the pace with this single. Burn Baby Burn is yet more punk-pop noise with sugar sweet pop melodies and teenage lyricism. It harks back more towards Ash's older punkier style, similar in style to their first album 1977 than to the heavier more mature sound of second album Nu-Clear Sounds. Kicking off with a quietly catchy guitar riff, before the distorted power chords and vocals jump in, Burn Baby Burn is typical Ash and nothing that they haven't done better before. It recalls material like Gold finger, but isn't as good or as exciting. Thinking About You is a slow acoustic number, full of sensitive singer/songwriter mannerisms, with a subtle cello in the background for added poignancy. The Arthur Baker remix of Submission is the best thing on the single, with guitar riffs battling against dance beats and orchestral stabs, and Tim Wheelers repeated "you turn me on" vocal refrain, it sounds fresh and energised. Burn Baby Burn is a pretty average single from Ash, after a long run of quality singles it sounds like a bit of a step backwards. It's still a good song though, as Ash do this type of stuff really well, it's just not their best work, and hopefully the album will find them looking forwards again.
