Anthology

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
The Daniel Ash Anthology is a three-disc collection covering the singer's early-'90s solo work which began just after Love & Rockets' eponymous 1989 breakthrough record. Exhausted from the band's constant touring and promotion of what had become their most successful album, Love & Rockets was put on hiatus, leaving both Ash and co-founder David J to stretch out with solo projects. For Ash, it began with his 1991 release Coming Down, which, along with 1992's Foolish Thing Desire, is included here in its entirety. Originally conceived as a covers project, he eventually wrote nine new originals and whittled the covers down to just three tracks. Employing drummer ...

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
The Daniel Ash Anthology is a three-disc collection covering the singer's early-'90s solo work which began just after Love & Rockets' eponymous 1989 breakthrough record. Exhausted from the band's constant touring and promotion of what had become their most successful album, Love & Rockets was put on hiatus, leaving both Ash and co-founder David J to stretch out with solo projects. For Ash, it began with his 1991 release Coming Down, which, along with 1992's Foolish Thing Desire, is included here in its entirety. Originally conceived as a covers project, he eventually wrote nine new originals and whittled the covers down to just three tracks. Employing drummer (and longtime bandmate) Kevin Haskins and Arabic-influenced singer Natacha Atlas for much of the record, Coming Down has a cool, dark flavor, further exploring the moods he had begun with the previous Love & Rockets album. Complementing the reissue are alternate mixes of four tracks from the album. His second solo effort, Foolish Thing Desire, contains entirely original material covering Ash's various styles, from sleek, Marc Bolan-influenced midtempo rockers to melodic, acoustic-led numbers that recall Love & Rockets' heyday. As with Coming Down, there are several remixes included with the reissue, including four different mixes of the single "Get Out of Control." The third disc of Anthology, titled Bits 'n' Bobs, will be of greatest interest to fans and collectors as it contains largely unreleased B-sides, covers, rarities, and singles from later in his career. The collection comprised some of Ash's personal favorites and includes covers of David Essex's classic "Rock On" and Argent's "Hold Your Head Up." While some of the included material comes off as a bit indulgent, Anthology does provide top-notch remasters of Ash's best solo records and enough curiosities to satisfy both casual and hardcore fans.
