Having seen the band live recently the new songs didn't make much impression on me. So I was pleasantly surprised on playing Elegant Stealth. It really is a good collection of songs. Songs such as "Give it Up" can take their place alongside Ash's classic numbers.
A strong album - highly recommended for all Ash fans.
of Argus! Stunning trade mark 'Twin Guitars', great vocals and the band playing as tight as two coats of paint. If you love
the sound of 'Classic Rock' young or old you need to check out this c.d. - 11 tracks and not a dud on here. It's one of those
rare albums that you do not have to 'skip' a track. Sit back and prepare to be amazed by the return of great Rock!!
Thankyou Andy Powell and Co!
Reason To Believe
Man With No name
Can't Go it Alone
Give It Up
Searching For Satellites
The band's output since then has been somewhat variable, so it's pleasing to find that almost forty years on, and despite numerous personnel changes and periods of internal strife, Andy Powell and his current line-up have produced a refreshingly solid and, yes, elegant body of work that plays to the band's strengths and is probably their most consistent release in recent memory.
From the radio-friendly "Reason To Believe" to the rollicking jazz-rock instrumental "Mud-Slick" there's plenty of scope for the famed twin leads, and the vocals - not always the band's strongest point in the past - have a depth and warmth that enhances and enriches the overall sound. "Heavy Weather" and "Searching for Satellites" are other highlights.
Just one quibble: the mess that is the hidden track "dance remix" of "Reason To Believe". A Wishbone Ash dance remix? Come on...
Andy Powell's voice has matured into A real instrument and as always the duel guitars are at the forefront - such melodious lines and skilful interplay , the rhythm section of Joe Crabtree on drums ( what a player!) and the amazing bass- lines of Bob Skeat set such a strong foundation for Muddy and Andy to really sign off a true triumphant guitar sound.What is particularly pleasing is the strong lyrical content - I can take lyrics or leave them on most albums but listeners ( if they want) will appreciate some very mature thought- provoking and interesting lyrics here
I can't find a dud track here , my favourites are Can't go it alone ( feature live on the last tour - gotta say live it was even better )Heavy Weather , The instrumental Mud-Slick and Big Issues but every other track is great - searching for Satelites is really challenging for Andy's voice in the range he has to use but he really does the business on a super track that is growing and growing on me
I commend this album whole- heatedly to both present fans and newbies - a superb piece of work that compares VERY favourably to the very best Wishbone of the past ,for a band of this pedigree and age to be able to generate this quality of work is praiseworthy indeed
I pronounce total contentment- very very rare accolade for me to give and not given lightly
Well done Wishbone
