Unfortunately, their later releases didn't have quite the same effect. Their latest, in particular, feels more like driving across the prairies than a trek across the mountainous peaks of their earlier work. Evoking Ash from Meltdown onward, some tracks feel like the Killers ("Hedonism") and others more like Sum 41 ("Shutdown" and "Dispatch"). Highlights "Cocoon" and "Let's Ride" are amongst the few tracks that suit the album's title.
Ash still generate radio-friendly tunes on Kablammo!, but they lack the depth that they demonstrated at their peak, and sound a little like they're merely repeating their post-millennial releases at this point. (earMUSIC/Edel)
