There's never been a band like Wishbone Ash: its unique twin lead sound has often been copied and abused, sometimes by the band itself, but remains the true copyright of this venerable rock institution. This new CD is a worthy addition to a weighty back catalogue and live legacy. It's tasteful, inventive, sensitive, challenging and catchy. The songs pay due attention to the band's 35 year history but refuse to be imprisoned or constrained by it. The opener,'Eyes Wide Open', sets the pace nicely and is complemented by the driving southern rock sound of 'Healing Ground', the almost folky, 'The Raven', the 50s Shadows soundalike, 'Surfing A Slow Wave', and the chaingang blues dirge, 'Motherless Child'. It's a heady mix! Throughout the band play beautifully - precise, eloquent but never clinical. Andy Powell's singing is truly excellent. Buy this record now!
