Ash 1977 - Nineteen... - 2 extra trks UK CD album
Written and recorded while a teenage Tim Wheeler was doing his A-levels, 1977 (named after the year Star Wars was released) made Ash bona-fide indie starlets overnight, largely thanks to the quality of the singles it contains. Their timing couldn't have been better: the summer of 1996 belonged to the Union Jack guitar, and Ash were free to ride the wildsurf of the Britpop tsunami, electrifying everyone with the quirky ("Girl From Mars"), the funny (the Jackie Chan comedy of "Kung Fu") and the best Christmas song ever written by a guitar band--the heartwarming mixture love and science that was "Angel Interceptor".
It is unfortunately hindered by the trademark duvet production of Oasis man Owen Morris, which muffles Rick McMurrey's thunderous drums and does nothing for Wheeler's uniquely flat voice (one of the album's major shortcomings in itself). It also suffers from a monotony produced by its constant full-on nature which a couple of acoustic (or even slower) numbers would have fixed and balanced the album better. If these had replaced some of the more forgettable album tracks here ("Lost In You" and the needlessly bombastic "I'd Give You Any Thing"), then so much the better. Come to reminisce not just for the pubescent memories it evokes within the songs, but also the memories of the time it was released. Or, as Wheeler laments on the teenage love anthem "Oh Yeah", "I sometimes wish it was that summer again". --Ben Johncock

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.
Buy it now, not later. That's what i did. Now i regret that i didn't just buy it when i originally wanted it so i could've been listening to this the last 6 years...
This was the band's first official album, moving away slightly from their punk routes that were apparent on their EP, and into the main stream of things. '1977', like Supergrass' 'I Should Coco', is filled with youthful energy, it has a timeless feel which is so rare these days, and was rightly a big hit when the guys released it back in 1996. In fact, with such solid Summer tunes like 'Kung Fu', 'Angel Interceptor' and 'Goldfinger', you almost feel like you are listening to a greatest hits album rather than a studio.
