Album Review

John Gilmore [allmusic.com]

Ash's first album with guitarist Laurie Wisefield shows the band moving towards a more streamlined, commercial approach. That said, the band's signature twin lead guitar sound seems to benefit from Wisefield's use of the Les Paul and other various guitars. He is clearly qualified to take the place of the departed Ted Turner, as songs such as Silver Shoes and the bona fide Ash classic Persephone amply demonstrate. Lady Jay offers some intriguing folkish elements, as well as literate lyrics. Overall, one of the best albums from a band yet to receive the respect they truly deserve.
