Ash - Polaris
Label: Infectious Music
Format: CDS


Sadly awful second single from Ash's new album 'Twilight of the Innocents'

This is the second single from Ash's new album 'Twilight of the Innocents', which they say will be there last as they say after this they are switching to making singles only. It breaks my heart to say it, but it is awful. 'Polaris' is very mainstream sounding like a daytime FM friendly jingle for an out-of-town non hip radio station or a mid summer festival lighter holding track for drunk teenagers to sway too. There are two 7 inch versions of 'Polaris' On the B side of the first one which comes in a gatefold , there is another new track, called 'Chinese New Year', which is acoustic and much more perky but still does not live up to Ash's fine back record. 'Kingdom of Shadow' is the B side of the second 7 inch which has a wraparound poster and is in green vinyl, and is much better and, written by drummer Rick McMurray, fast and furious. Sadly the B side of the CD, 'Come on Over', which is a slow ballad and sounds a like bit like Lou Reed's 'Walk on the Wild Side', is again substandard for Ash.
