Product description

Product Description

INTERGALACTIC SONIC 7'S is a complete retrospective of singles and B-sides from Ireland's energetic alternative rock act Ash.

Amazon.co.uk

Intergalactic Sonic 7"s, which arrives hot on the heels of their blistering "Burn Baby Burn" success, confirms what everyone knew already--Ash are a great singles band. It's amazing how often they pull off a perfect three minutes--even though just teenagers at the time of their debut. Witness the bittersweet memories of "Girl From Mars", the rain-lashed, drunken teenage love of "Goldfinger" through the glorious adolescence of "Oh Yeah" (and who hasn't experienced that hormonal surging as "her hair came undone in my hands"?). Compiling a standard tracklisting would always be a hideous undertaking, hence the proud emergence of this 19 track beast instead.

The Free All Angels singles continue this remarkable tradition, best demonstrated in "Sometimes", a song as close to perfection as possible that--along with "Shining Light", "Burn Baby Burn" and "Walking Barefoot" (not actually a single, but one that should have been)--show the maturity in Wheeler's songwriting and musicianship that resurrected his band from the edge of disaster after the fallout from the non-conforming Nu-Clear Sounds. Token new track "Envy" seems pale in comparison, largely due to the quality of Free All Angels material, but at least the grimy New York gutter riffage of the swaggering "Jesus Says" and summertime exuberance of "Wildsurf" are given the air they need here. Also present is the much-underrated but indispensable "A Life Less Ordinary", finally in a place that it deserves along with some earlier efforts ("Petrol") that perhaps are not. Ash are what teenagers with guitars should sound like, because teenage boys care about girls and getting wasted, not becoming victims of conformity. --Ben Johncock

Bought this collection for myself as I used to heavily borrow it off my friend in college. Many people label Ash as 'Pop Punk,' which to me, is a contradiction in terms. Pop = Polished, mostly melody driven music written by ghost writers and often performed by session musicians, Punk = very much the opposite, self produced, raw and dirty, occasionally incorporating melody but not necessarily driven by it.
Ash, to my ears, fall somewhere in between, they write their own songs, are a band, rely heavily on melody but are pretty guitar driven as well, let's just call them Pop Rock and be done with it!?
Anyway, the album itself is chock-full of hits. Most are melodic rock songs 'Jack Names The Planets,' others grand and almost orchestral 'There's a Star' / 'Shining Light' and others more or less straight up rock songs 'Burn Baby Burn' / 'Jesus Says,' the borderline metal 'Numbskull' being a bit of an anomaly and a good one at that.
I remember seeing a lot of them as videos on Kerrang! when it was actually a rock channel and not shoving rubbish emo and metal bands like Asking Alexandria or whoever down viewer's throats, so I assume most of these tracks are singles and most definitely sound that way inclined.
For Ash enthusiasts? I don't know! I've only ever heard the songs on this album and have never listened to any of their standalone albums.
I do believe it was released just before the 'Meltdown' album and unfortunately doesn't feature that albums's fantastic single 'Orpheus,' apart from that and all else since, I can only assume this CD is a comprehensive collection of Ash's best songs and release up until that point.
This does include the 'Cosmic Debries' bonus disc, which is essentially B-Sides and most, whilst not poor by any stretch are pretty unspectacular and forgettable. I can't see myself listening to it again any time as they sound exactly like B Side fillers, but at this price who can gripe?

Although only in their twenties, Northern Ireland's Ash have been around for many years, and have survived hard times as well as revelling in real success, including this collection of singles. Their tracks vary quite a bit, ranging from the intense shouty Numbskull to the pop-tastic Wildsurf, the beautifully poignant Sometimes and the exhuberantly orchestral Candy. Essentially they hinge around power-pop, with airy riffs and optimistic lyrics, mostly about love and lust. Anyone who likes Weezer or Fountains Of Wayne will love this.
Most of the tracks on here are extremely impressive - both Shining Light (a melancholic ballad which can be seen as being about love, God or drugs, depending on interpretation) and Burn Baby Burn (the ultimate in singalong rock) having won Single Of the Year awards (for the same year). Sometimes is my absolute favourite though, the sheer beauty has to be heard to be believed.
The earlier hits such as Girl From Mars and Oh Yeah have such wistful innocence and joie de vivre that it's hard not to be impressed, especially as the band wrote them while still at school. Although their Nu-Clear Sounds album wasn't as commercially successful, it supplies three great tracks here - Numbskull, Jesus Says and Wildsurf.
The second disk is superb as well, comprising some of their classic bonus tracks. They've clearly taken a lot of pride in many of these, most would be up to album standard, and several (especially The Sweetness Of Death, Nocturne and 13th Floor) could easily be hts in their own right. The Sweetness of Death is almost certainly the only song ever to make a melody out of the word 'melatonin', which has to be worth something in itself.

Finally – a chance to have Ash’s best all on one CD! As much as I love their music, there is a tendency for Ash albums to contain a couple of dodgy tracks which always result in you pressing the skip button every so often. But a collection of all their best ends all that – there is not a single track on this album deserving of a skip. With a fantastic opening from their more recent “Burn Baby Burn”, through to the heavy “Numbskull”, this singles compilation is proof of Ash’s talent and range of sounds. The classics “Girl from Mars” and “A Life Less Ordinary” (which incidentally doesn’t feature on any other Ash album) both feature, along with a few of their really early tracks like the fantastic “Uncle Pat”, which you may not have heard if you haven’t heard their demo album. This will add to the collection of any fan and also gain them new fans along the way – if you don’t have any of the band’s material, buy this record because it will introduce you to the musical greatness that is ASH!

In regards to the review below by Edna Sweetlove - your comments make no sense to me. If you want to criticize Ash for their music then fine, but having a go just because they dont sound "Irish" enough is ludricous and unfair. If they were from England would you be saying that they dont sound "English" enough? Ash have never set out to pander to the kind of faux Irishness that rubbish like the Coors do, and instead sound like their influences which is mainly US punk pop and classic rock.

Now whilst I admit that Ash are not one of the worlds greatest bands by any stretch of the imagination, they have nonetheless produced some corking classic singles - Kung Fu, Girl From Mars, Jack Names The Planets, Angel Interceptor, Goldfinger, Walking Barefoot, Burn Baby Burn - and seeing as this collection contains them all I will happily give this 4 stars.
