A double CD deluxe version of Wishbone's classic 2007 Rock Classic. Wishbone Ash have been a major force in Rock music since 1971. Their seminal album 'Argus' has sold over four million copies and their total sales to date are in excess of 16 million. Power of Eternity was the band's 2007 follow up album to Bona Fide and introducing new guitarist Muddy Manninen. This deluxe version includes live tracks from the album plus an interview with front man Andy Powell.

Willis 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. --Amazon

Wright 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. --Amazon

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! --Amazon
