Album Review

Once he broke up Love & Rockets in 1999, Daniel Ash traded in his guitar for a drum kit and some technics and didn't look back. The success of the Bauhaus reunion the year before didn't tempt him either, for Ash was yearning to make himself a song. His self-titled solo debut, which took two years to make, embraces a newfound freedom and a carefree musical disposition. His appreciation for techno and electronica is fresh and eclectic, but he couldn't disregard his maddening guitar skill altogether. Daniel Ash is a hypnotic whirlpool of distorted licks and vocals and Ash's own take on dance music, without being over the top.

He was always a brash sort of artist, so the confidence is there. Fans might take a liking to his chic new style — Love & Rockets' final album, Lift, was shaping up that way.
