Classic!

"Ash are a great band who, unlike U2, never really got the attention they deserved. 1997 is one of the most underrated records of all time. It features some of the best pop melodies and rock 'n roll guitars you are gonna hear. Just like weezer they write great melodic songs. What more do u need?"

"Without being as consistently stunning a debut as "Suede","New Wave"or "Definitely Maybe" Ash's "1977" nonetheless showed that from the start they posessed what it took to be great,writing songs as compelling as the ones that constitute the vast majority of this álbum..

From the hooky punk pop of "Kung Fu" to "Oh Yeah"'s storming beauty,"Goldfinger"'s dark riff rock,"Girl from Mars"'s buoyant effervescence,"Innocent Smile"'s brazen melodic fury or "Gone the Dream"'s prettiness there's a huge highlight almost every other song.

A colossal improvement from their naive first EP("Trailer")"1977" finds Ash scoring in all fields and making a mark for themselves,especially in the considerably stagnant punk/power pop genre of the mid 90's.
