Ash – Insects (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , , on May 19, 2010 by Tickets There


Wow, we’re very, very behind with the Ash reviews. KISS really messed things up for a few weeks and the very sad passing of Ronnie James Dio didn’t exactly help motivate the Tickets There minds. Now we’re determined to get back in full swing and what better way to make our return, but by writing our 42,000 Ash review.

Rather than going the complex or over the top route, Ash have settled on the fairly straight forward pop approach. Insects flows well, the chorus is catchy and the word Insects constantly being repeated will conjure up some images.

Not a song you could write a million words about and not the best thing the band’s ever come out with but a decent effort all the same. Towards the end things really drive home and the guitars are stand out. Some serious finger tabbing or something going on there.

Not bad lads, keep it up.

ASH: A – Z Series (Singles Reviews)

Tickets There is on a major ASH buzz of a late. We’re resisting the extreme temptation of making them our favorite Irish act because we feel the position should go to one of the lesser known bands we love. In reality, ASH are our favorite Irish act currently on the go and their ability to write some of the catchiest and most perfect pop rock / alt-rock / grungy tracks in the history of the country never seems to diminish with the years.

Last year the band announced they would no longer use the traditional album format to release music and instead, were only going to release singles. Now they’re living up to their promise and have just released the second single from their A – Z Series of singles. Every fortnight for roughly the next year, a new single will be released on limited 7” and for download.

Tickets There has decided to turn our attentions to this so we’ll be updating this post every two weeks when a new single is released. Please click on the song names below to read each review.
