The first ‘proper’ album by Ash since Twilight of the Innocents a whole eight years ago… Kablammo! announces itself rather firmly with that title, and the first single, ‘Cocoon’ matches that tone with straight-down-the-line riffs and a sweeping chorus. “We have lots of energy!” seems to be the message.

So after Ash declared that they were a 'Singles Band', and the Album format was dead...here we are 8 years later with their latest effort that seemed to come out of nowhere. I was totally expecting this album to reek of a veteran band trying to recapture their early, energetic indiepunk days especially with a name like Kablammo! Fortunately it's the opposite - fun, fresh and poppy it's what you'd expect Ash to sound like but with an extra nod to modern indie bands. It's good to have them back, and on this form I wouldn't write them off again!
