5.0 out of 5 stars superb, 3 April 2014
a triumph of craftsmanship, melodic tuneful and executed with a high degree of musicality.

Elegant Stealth was always going to be a hard act to follow but this does the trick and for Wishbone addicts like me it was well worth the wait.
there are may stand out tracks and such a range of melodies, Joe Crabtree's drumming is awesome, driving, tuneful, the rythm combo with the excellent Bob Skeat lays a firm foundation to the classic twin guitar 'licks' from Andy Powell and Muddy Manninen.

initial listens favoured tracks like Tally Ho and American Century, but I just cant get Way Down South out of my mind, almost poppy in a rocky way, my current favourite is All there… Read more

Artwork inspired, presentation great, lots of useful information for those who are interested.The music obviously speaks for itself but the inclusion of some fantastic lesser known songs is to be applauded.

I commend this CD to old afficiando's and new fans alike, listen to the lyrics especially those old Silversten lyrics, they tell some great stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 30 Dec 2013
I use this for canal walks, trekking and mountain hikes.i walk 11/2-2 hrs every day and in ALL weathers, the dog has to be walked or she would drive us nuts
The weather has been ghastly and since I had this coat has thrown everything at us weather-wise
Its warm ( would not be great on a warm wet day) wind proof but most importantly its totally and utterly waterproof.

The wrist fittings and peaked cap and hood fittings are particularly good, I have remained totally dry and cosseted whilst outside all sorts of hell has been thrown at me

I am totally impressed with this kit and will be getting some more Paramo stuff, fit for purpose-you bet it is, tried 3 or 4… Read more
