The classic rock bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s enjoy a unique place in popular musical history. The Beatles had gone their separate ways, Britain had already experienced the Blues Boom, and Psychedelia had made its impact. The creative possibilities were infinite.

Wishbone Ash embarked on the nascent Progressive Rock scene in 1969, taking ... Read more in Amazon's Wishbone Ash Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A mature and essential album 18 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One doesn't want to keep harking back to the past legacy of this band, but I suppose the trick is embracing it and then moving forward. The many twists and turns of the line up and album output would suggest the current recording group bares little or no resemblence to classic ash.

That would be a mistake however. In the past they have, under the guidance of Andy Powell deviated too far from the path. I think this one is bang on though. It holds within it lots of fresh ideas, yet also brings echoes of the past too.

As much as I enjoyed Clan Destiny, I did find moments where the songs were too immediate, too obvious and too throwaway (steamtown vocals for instance). This album seems to bring back some of the mystique. Admirably it is also a very controlled album. The fans love their guitar solos, but where they are used here it is always tasteful and appropriate.

One big surprise was the track 2 funky Ash....and it works! There aren't really any duff tracks on this album and they all flow together towards the same goal. Other tracks sometimes throw some curve balls by throwing in some unexpected chords and choice of directions. I really liked what I heard straight away, but had the pleasure of knowing there would be more to discover on further listens.

My only gripe seems to stem from the unavoidable fact that Andy takes lead on all these songs. His voice is pleasant enough but is crying out for some of the classic harmony sounds found in songs like Time Was and Blowin' Free.

Overall this album comes pretty damn close behind No Smoke Without Fire in my list...and that's praise indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eternal Staying Power? 1 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Released just weeks before a 'de-luxe' reissue of the mighty Argus hits the shelves, Andy Powell's much changed troubadours have put together this very tasty confection of tunes. As with most recent Ash cds this has some very fine moments indeed: the cover art, too, is simply awesome - a 21st century of the iconic warrior of 1972 perhaps? Stand-out tracks include the opener, 'The Power', a restrained yet powerful melody reminiscent of 'Mountainside'; the unbelieveably catchy 'In Crisis'; the twin-guitar feast of 'Growing Up'; and the atmospheric closer, 'Hope Springs Eternal'. The remaining songs are pretty darn good too! It's the sound of a band still very much alive and still evolving, conscious of its unique heritage but not enslaved by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars CD Review 6 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant CD from the longest established line-up of Wishbone Ash. The group is progressing in the time-honoured style and is not stuck in the past as its own Tribute Band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Comfortable For Its Own Good 2 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
For me, the high water mark of Wishbone Ash releases over the last few years has to be "Bona Fide". It harnessed all of the traits that I love about Ash's music, and then spiced things up with some surprisingly hard guitar lines and rockin blues. So it's against this album that I find myself constantly placing Power of Eternity against, and sadly I'm finding this new album coming up short.

The opening track is, for my money, the best on the CD and kicks things off with a good catchy guitar riff. Things then take a bit of a curve with Driving a Wedge, which sounds like Wishbone Ash giving their take on a new Red Hot Chilli Peppers track, with slightly less edge. And they actually pull it off which is a nice surprise.

After that, there are just not enough memorable melodies or guitar lines to keep you coming back for more. (Although I really like Disappearing which has a rhythm guitar hook writen by Andy Powell's son, and as a result sounds really fresh and very different from the rest of the album.) I love the fact that Wishbone Ash are still going, and continue to release new material, rather than living off their early 70's heyday. I'd just prefer if they injected a bit more of a bite into their next release.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wishbone Ash story continues 12 Dec 2007
By Wallace Phillips - Published on
Format:Audio CD
As a Wishbone Ash fan of 30+ years I am greatly pleased they are still releasing new and vital music and playing well over 100 dates a year around the globe.

Power of Eternity hooked me on about the second or third listen. It features Andy Powell's arguably best vocal work, his voice has mellowed with age and he has obviously worked at improving.

As always the twin lead guitars are back and better than ever, with Finnish player Muddy Manninen doing the guitar work with Powell laying down brilliant well constructed melodies. Muddy has been with the band for three years now and as he has become more comfortable and confident, he and Andy's styles are really gelling.

It begins with The Power, a pulsing rocker that begs to be heard in a live setting.

Driving a Wedge has a catchy funky beat, showing Wishbone Ash is not afraid to explore new musical ground, even after 37 years.

In Crisis is a driving rocker that at almost 7 minutes could be considered an epic. It is destined to be a Wishbone Ash classic (along the lines of Living Proof) with its soul-baring lyrics, catchy melody and two stunning guitar solos by Andy and Muddy.

Dancing with the Shadows, a Mannimen composition, is a trip into the darker side of the soul. Muddy apparently has spent some time contemplating the world during some long Finnish nights. The song has a unique and enjoyable melody and rhythm structure along with the thoughtful lyrics.

Happiness is my second favorite tune on this disc, with an infectious bouncy guitar riff that is, well, "happy".

Northern Lights is an acoustic guitar instrumental that ranks right there with their other classic songs such as Candlelight and Lullaby.

Your Indulgence is a love song with a very nice chorus.

Growing Up is another favorite of mine with some sweet twin lead guitars, up-tempo pace, nice melody, and great lyrics.

The album ends on a strong note with Hope Springs Eternal, which has a lush rhythm guitar section bringing it in, and then escalating with arguably the best drum work on the album.

With the Power of Eternity, Wishbone Ash hits a harsh blow to any critics of the bands newest line up, it is the first album to feature Joseph Crabtree on drums but he already fits in so well with the rest of the band, most probably due to extensive touring he has done with the band since joining. The twin guitar melodies created by Powell and Manninen are some of the best I've ever heard from Wishbone Ash, and it's done even better live on both old and new songs. And as always, since joining the band Bob Skeat puts down an excellent rhythm throughout the whole album.

This record is a very enjoyable listen from start to finish and a worthy addition to the Wishbone Ash legacy. I gave it four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD - it rocks 13 Aug 2009

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great CD. I like tracks 1,3,6 the best. The thing about this one is that it sticks with you and you'll play it over and over again. On this CD, they have a great melodic sense and not a bad one on here. Nice job guys!
3.0 out of 5 stars A little letdown. 8 Oct 2012
By ScottE - Published on
Format:Audio CD
(2007) 22nd studio offering 'Power Of Eternity", just got released too soon. After the classic "Clan Destiny", they released the year before. They brought in 28 year-old drummer Joseph Crabtree (who played in the progressive rock band Pendragon from 2006-2008). This album had some good tunes in, "The Power", "In Crisis", "Northern Lights" and "Your Indulgence". They would wait another 4 years before releasing the excellent "Elegant Stealth" in 2011.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good! 10 Feb 2011

Not as good as Bona Fide or Clan Destiny--the last 2 albums--in my opinion, but still very good. Particularly the first three songs are excellent. Highly recommended!
