A great record!! Wild surf is awesome!
ive always liked it. Always slightly baffled me why it got so slagged off.
I think they were maybe the only good band with a DJ guy at that time
'Projects' is not only one of my favourite Ash songs, but I think it's one of the best album openers I've ever heard.
it is not a great record.
HOWEVER if they had replaced the 4 or 5 shitty songs with 4 or 5 really good songs - that Tim Wheeler clearly had it in him to write - this could have actually been one of the best British albums of all time.
As it is, it has completely justifiably gone down in musical history as somewhat of a failure. A shame, because half of it is brilliant. The other half though is utter guff.
