We Stand As One
Great tune, typical WA. Rocking.
Coat of Arms
Midtempo tune with a rocking riff. Wonderful twin guitar lines.
Driving folk song and all of a sudden hard riffing and then reggae, Caribbean rhythm guitar and sweeping guitar sounds. Wishbone Ash twin sounds. Great acoustic guitar solo lead out.
Pretty smooth song, very melodic, soulful vocals by Andy Powell, at the end sort of reggae feeling.
Stomping tune with Southern feeling, great guitar sounds.
It´s Only You I See
More quiet song with chorus and delay effects on guitars, typical Wishbone Ash riffing @ 2:42 and parallel beautiful melodies.
Too Cool For AC
Very nice Southern like twin guitars
Back In The Day
Rocking rhythm chords, driving drum beat reminds me on British beat bands??!?!?
Sentimental balladesque song, great harmonies, a bit of middle age flair
When The Love Is Shared
Main riff reminds me on Camel´s Lunar Sea, rocking riff
Great guitar riff, blues feeling, with horn arrangement
Great cd. Wishbone Ash is what you get here. WA´s rhythm section is superb. Varying music. Typical Ash guitar . Sweet sounding axes!!! Nice cd booklet with all the lyrics
The band is amazing. Mark Abrahams, member since 2017, is a great addition and a fountain of youth for Wishbone Ash.
